An amazing family moved into our small town this year expecting a baby boy. A group of local mothers decided to throw her a beautiful baby shower to celebrate her and the little one coming into our lives. Bekah chose the theme, travel, which we transformed into a travel and adventure theme. We tried to create elements of going on a journey through the decor and phrasing. “Oh the places you will go”, “explore”, “celebrate the journey”, and “wild and free”. The colors displayed were navy blue, light blue, gold, grey, silver, and pops of green from fresh flowers ( created by fellow shower attendee and florist Katy Anderson). Brown medicine bottles with botanicals and blue grape hyacinths added pops of color to the shower.
We packed babies bags, he’s going to be a world traveler! He has his adorable travel bag packed with toys, travel journal and blanket fitting the theme. On the drink table a suit case full of needed items. Baby might even go to the moon! And so we added items featuring moons, and even a precious moon pillow and a mini tooth fairy moon pillow! Hints of camping dressings were placed around,teddy bear, lantern, and botanicals to invoke a sense of how wilderness adventure might bring you a mix of all of these. And of course anything Zachary might travel in was displayed, planes, hot air balloons, boats, and rockets.
The desserts included “up in the clouds divinity”, and “ to the moon-pie’s”.chocolate bars in map wrappers, and an amazing chocolate cake by my friend and baker Lisa Bartholomew. A banquet of delectable foods a world traveler might enjoy were prepared by all the lovely mom’s who attended.
We knew Zachary would arrive in time for the shower and so we hung “Welcome to the world” outside this country home to welcome him to the world and to a celebration in his and his momma’s honor.
