First off, I miss you guys.
With wedding planning in FULL effect…and just life in general- I have totally gone ghost on this blog. But here I am y’all! Back in action.
I wanted to write this post because it is a glimpse into my real life, behind the keyboard, and something I really enjoyed doing.
Quick backstory: My friend (and bridesmaid!) is pregnant with her second child, and this time around- it’s a BOY!! So, I thought it would be fun to completely surprise her with a baby shower!!! I chose a nautical theme….and went WILD….
Let me tell you,…it was…
so. dang. fun.
If I do say so myself, it was a total success. Great friends, good food, sweet gifts, and lots of laughs. Here are some pictures from the day….
the moment of surprise…..
Every baby shower needs a ‘mom-osa’ bar… amiright?!
DIY nautical flags – such a sweet touch.
She’s happy because … cake … DUH! Oh, and I mean…mayyyyybe because of the shower….I’m leaning towards the cake though….
Classic BBQ style summer food- an all around win!
Thunderstorms in the forecast called for an indoor shindig instead of outdoor. It was a bit squishy, but we made it work and had a blast.
She was blown away by all of the generous and heartfelt gifts.
Fun little ‘decorate a diaper & onesie’ station. The results were hilarious…
Our gift and favor table. Guests left with a beachy smelling Bath and Body Works hand soap with a cute little ‘thank you’ sentiment.
So there you have it! A nautical baby boy shower. Almost all decor was DIY and so much fun. Don’t be afraid to pinterest and actually attempt those pins from time to time!
Also, I have to give a HUGE shout-out to my mom, fiance, and aunt. Without their help the shower would not have been nearly as beautiful or delicious.
Wishing you all the best,
