I'm really excited to finally share this baby shower I planned and hosted for my good friend, Jody and her family. It was recently featured on one of my favorite party planning blogs, 100 Layer Cakelet.
When Jody first told us that she was expecting, Gary and I knew we wanted to throw them a shower especially since it is going to be a boy and their first is a sweet little girl named Olive. When we first started planning the party, Jody asked if she could design the invitations and chose a shibori inspired theme. I took it to heart and started to dye everything indigo blue in my house. It was so much fun making all the decor: lanterns, garlands, pillow covers, and table runners.
As for the menu, I wanted to do some brunch finger foods. I put together some silver dollar pancake stacks, bite-size chicken and waffles, smokies with tater tots, and mini donuts. We had a lot of kids on the guest list, so a charcuterie spread is always a favorite with the little ones (and the big ones too).
The cake was made by our amazingly talented friend, Sheila.
The rope bowl favors are handmade by friend, Yoon Mi. And of course, Jody did the calligraphy on the note pads.
It really was an honor to host this celebration for our friends. We love you guys so much.
