When your parents own a vintage rental company and want to throw you a baby shower, you know it's going to be good...
Holly (mom) wanted to invite all of our loved ones (women, men, and children) to a sophisticated, whimsical party. She drew inspiration from one of our favorite children's books - Where the Wild Things Are. Perfection for a little boy. Her goal was a celebratory, welcoming, playful atmosphere with sophisticated and earthy design. With the help of some outstanding vendors, she absolutely succeeded, and we got to celebrate the arrival of our little one with so many we hold dear.
We took the opportunity to take some maternity photos with the incredible Katerina Sophia. Knowing our lives were about to change forever, we wanted some images to capture ourselves as a couple before we became a family of three. What a special evening of love and laughter. We couldn't be more grateful!
The lovely and talented Elena Balkcom (pictured below) of Laurel Avenue styled these comfy lounge areas and adorable vignettes. They really set the tone for the evening.
And the FOOD!
Fountain of Juice knocked it out of the park with these delicious displays.
I'm told the signature cocktail was delicious as well. : )
The seasonally appropriate apple cider old fashioned was a big hit.
While most guests lounged and mingled, there was a beautifully set table styled with
Southern Vintage's china, glassware, flatware, and textiles.
Mary Pinson's flowers were the beautifully organic icing on the cake!
