I know. I know . . . . . ANOTHER Baby Shower.
I love to throw ’em, what can I say? This shower was for a friend of mine I met at church several years ago and she’s one of our fantasticly gifted worship leaders . . . you should hear her sing! I’ve know Kristin since she was single . . . dating . . . engaged . . . and now married with 1.5 kids! And I had the pleasure of making 600+ cupcakes for her wedding to Tyler and it was the most cupcakes I’ve ever done at once!
Another mutual friend of Kristin, Lydia, and I hosted the shower together at my house.
Lydia grabbed this shot of herself, myself, and Kristin on her phone after all the guests had left and it’s the only photo we have of the 3 of us together! But at least you’ll know who the cast of characters are while I chat about all the details of this wonderful gathering and celebration of a new life created by none other than God himself.
Lydia asked a friend to do some fresh flower arrangements and another friend to take some snapshots of the details of the shower . . . . . Amber Mustain crafted the amazing flowers & Allison Easterling captured the beautiful details and moments of the shower so well. And Lydia runs her own staging and design business, Maple & Moss, so check out these gals on each of their sites and take a gander at their individual gifts and talents!
Come take a look at the shower with me, won’t you?
Our guests were welcomed by us and my cute little sandwich ‘chalk’ board.
We served Mimosas and I rimmed the glasses with sanding sugar and garnished with plump ripe strawberries. We lined them up like little soldiers just waiting to be plucked from the basket by our guests as they arrived and entered in to celebrate with us . . . . .
The flowers were absolutely stunning and breath taking . . . . .
Kristin brought her little daughter, Harper. . . . .’Little Miss’ as I like to call her and it’s actually the same name I called each of my girls. They came a few minutes before the guests and Allison captured some shots of the two of them in the quiet moments while Lydia and I were finalizing all the details . . . . .
This one below is my favorite and oh, so frame worthy!
Here’s Kristin, our mom-to-be greeting the first guests as they arrived . . . . .
And ‘Little Miss’ was all happy and content just to sit on her grandma Carol’s lap as the celebration began . . . . .
And of course, I fed all our guests and here’s the shower fare . . . . .
~ Sausage & White Cheddar & Chive quiche ~
~ Blackberry, Brie & Sage Pinwheels ~
~ Cornmeal Sausage Balls with Dijon Apple Butter ~
~ Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Vinaigrette ~
~ Shallot & Chive Deviled Eggs ~
~ Buttermilk Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream and Crispy Bacon garnish ~
It was a sweet gathering where we all loved on and celebrated and showered this new little boy whom we have yet to meet! Here’s to welcoming a brand spanking new Baby Boy Woolley to the planet in a few weeks time . . . . . we all love you and your growing family, Kristin!
It was a lovely celebration . . . .
