balloons & flower crowns: a baby shower

October 4, 2015

last weekend a couple of my girlfriends threw nate and i a baby shower–it was absolutely perfect. katie and her husband john were graciously hosted the party in their charming little backyard in carroll gardens–which definitely made us start considering a move further into brooklyn to have a little backyard for the kids! it was an idyllic afternoon with our closest friends.

i loved the elegant simplicity of the the set up… sometimes all you need are a couple big globe balloons (my favorite) and stunning flowers (thank you johanna!!)–and of course some delicious food. a lot of people always ask where you can get these balloons and if you live in NYC balloon saloon is the place to go, but a special trick i like is to order them from amazon and then take them to a local drug store and have them blow them up.





baby-shower-7the shower was adults only, but alexa and hayden made a special guest appearance at the end–best of both worlds for nate and i! it helps that they’ve pretty much grown up with all of our friends around so it was like one big happy family.

alexa wanted to wear my flower crown (made by natalie, the queen of flower crown making… its a tradition amongst our girlfriends), but after about 2 seconds she decided it was a little too heavy for her head.









clearly per the image above, i was one happy mama and so thankful for all of the love our friends showered on us that day. i can’t imagine a more perfect afternoon! thanks katie and willa for planning our super special day. xo
