I had the honor of attending one of the most fun and nicely styled baby showers over the weekend. The lovely Amy is the mother of two boys and is expecting her first girl, Amelia Jayne, towards the end of February. She describes her nursery style as vintage woodland/storybook. So, with this in mind, let me share some details from the super stylish baby shower my talented friends threw for her (I had nothing to do with it, so allow me to gush):
Julie set the tone with the invitation.
Nicholle contributed the meringue toadstools and other delicious bites.
Marissa designed and arranged the woodland centerpieces. A floral nest atop a birch log. So perfect! There were numerous matching arrangements sprinkled around the house. I loved these because they set the tone of the table without taking up hardly any table real estate.
Richelle & Dave made super cute cupcakes and served them on a natural wooden platter.
And the lovely Richelle hosted the gathering in her Colonial Place bungalow. Richelle and I have eerily similar taste in home decor and art objects, and when visiting each others homes, snooping around is acceptable and even encouraged. Richelle found me in her bedroom leafing through her Anthology Magazine she keeps on her nightstand. I swear, I was in there just to get my coat, ha ha. She also has a shop featuring her vintage finds.
And lastly, as a party favor, each guest was given an owl soap made by Richelle. I don't have the heart to actually use it. And if she hadn't told me it was soap, I would've taken a regretful bite out of it later.
So, pretty cool, right? Makes me want to decorate my whole house with acorns and pine cones now.
