Brendan's Baby Shower

Brendan's Baby ShowerPinwheels, Izze Soda, Jelly Beans, Rock Candy, Cupcakes, Whoopie Pies, Pom Poms, Milk Glass, Tulips, Apothecary containers with Candy...I had a very specific vision for our recent baby shower to celebrate our baby boy! The shower took place at our home which allowed me to really take my time with the decor and food. Actually - I was surprisingly relaxed the day of the party! Here are some of my favorite details from the day that capture the overall feeling. In this case I wanted a soft and whimsical feel with lots of lots of sweets. Enjoy!

Our First Baby

Ollie (arguably our first child) is going to have a rude awakening in about 12 days when our little bundle is born. I'm trying so hard to stop treating our adorable Boston terrier pup like our baby...but it's so hard! I can only hope he takes the lack of attention well. In the meantime, we're just trying to get Ollie accustomed to being ignored a little here and when the baby arrives our shift in focus is not as much of a shock. Wish me luck!

Nursery Sneak Peek

The nursery is not done just yet - but once the art us hung up I'll take lots of pics! For now, here is a little teaser of what's to come.

Brendan's Baby Shower

I just got my new 50mm 1.4 lens...sadly two days after my baby shower so I didn't get to capture the actual day with the camera. But that's okay because I'm still learning to use this lens! Here are some of the best shots I got of some of my baby shower decor in the days after the actual event. You'll notice many decorative elements are taken directly from the baby shower inspiration board I designed to help me plan the big day.

Some of the special elements of the shower included pineapple cupcakes, banana whoopie pies, rock candy, Izze soda, tissue pom poms, pinwheels and tulips.

 I made the deserts myself...but other than that everything pretty much came from Etsy.
