Since when did ladies get to have all the fun at baby showers? Per request of the soon-to-be-parents, we planned a low key backyard couples shower to welcome the new little one. And I have to say, it was one of the most enjoyable showers I’ve ever been to… and probably the prettiest. The deck streamed with globe lights and candles, the fire flickering, tables layered with a delectable s’mores bar and Fall treats, and chairs filled with the best of friends.
And who doesn’t love a good s’mores bar…
And how cool is my friend’s deck… and greenhouse…??? So. Cool.
The best part about this was getting to decorate and plan out beautiful things with my best friends. And it all started coming together so well. The wildflowers were indeed locally sourced (as in legally or ehem… illegally… picked from a nearby highway).
But the real magic happened when the sun started going down, and the globe lights and candles came out to play…
Then the guests arrived and the fun began.
Our Eagle Scout started the fire. It wasn’t always burning since the world’s been turning.
The father-to-be enjoying the freshly lit fire.
The gentlemen. Contemplating gentlemanly things.
The roasting starts, and s’moregasboard commences.
The lovely hostess.
The glowing mother-to-be.
So blessed to get to be able to celebrate these wonderful first time parents.
Rounding the night up with gifts, and I’d say it was a good time had by all.
