Baby Shower Soiree


This weekend I had the honor and privilege
of attending
a magnificent
Baby Shower Soiree!
Every element  was so artfully done.

It was a party styling masterpiece
with 
Pinterest  worthy pinning vignettes
all the way through!



I am a big believer that any fabulous event
starts with 
a fabulous invite to set the tone!
This one captured the soiree in spades!

I also really appreciate when any invite concept
is carried through to the envelope.
Making getting an invite in  the mail
feel like a gift!

Each Soiree invite envelope
was hand water colored
and 
then stamped!
Making for the perfect invite 
to this marvelous 
Baby Soiree!


The gorgeous Momma to be is 
Hannah Thomas.
I have watched this beauty 
grow up for the last decade
because 
she and my girl Ellis
have been friends
since meeting at an art museum
on an  eighth grade home school field trip.

To this day 
I still remember seeing her and her Momma
for the first time
and wanting to be friends right away!
They both stood out so chic and fashionable.
I loved homeschooling
but 
most people who we met
had not much interest in fashion
So Hannah and Christy
were literally the fashion people we had been hoping to find!
It was from this common interest
not only did 
a strong friendship grow between
Ellis and Hannah
but
Christy and I as well.


Watching these two grow from eighth grade girls working on projects together
to high school years filled with dances and proms
high school and college graduations
Hannah's wedding
and
in  just weeks
Hannah will be in Ellis's wedding
as 
Ellis was in hers.


And in just a couple weeks after that
Hannah will give birth to her baby boy Noah.

I feel like Christy and I 
are definitely
passing on the battalion of young adult women
to these two beauties.


So besides it being a sentimental time for me …

Everything at the shower was perfection!
Hannah's husband Jarett built the low table
long enough to fit all the guests!

Seats were finished off with floor pillows
atop a  jute rug  form Ikea.

Napkins were hand dyed 
to really enhance the look and carry through the party's styling theme.


Hannah who also has a delightful  blog HERE
did this sumptuous wall hanging
which was a wonderful addition to the cake table vignette
set atop a vintage dresser!


There was cozy soft seating outside by the pool.
All addressed with coordinating pillows.


An outdoor rug from Target helped further
the feeling of luxurious outdoor rooms
While a vintage trunk made for a perfect coffee table.


Coordinating cushions  made their way all around.


Another vintage dresser 
was used to set up the drink station
which included a  white sangria!



Vintage silver and a cake trimmed with olive branches
completed this vignette perfection!



Guest were asked to wear white tops and jeans
for comfort since seating was on the floor.

I was so delighted
to see such stylish interpretations of the basics!



And yet another Pinterest worthy idea …
(This shower was truly chalk full of them!!).

This fantastic charcuterie board
lavished with deliciousness
was made out of cut  lumbar!
Just genius I say!!


The macrame hangings in the rear
were a wonderful way
to style yet another seating area.
Hannah not only made these
but they were given as prizes for the winners of the games!


The darling jars on the table 
were party favors for each guest
filled with sea salt scrub!


 Food was passed family style around the custom table.
Olive branches pulled everything together.
As the sun went down candles were lit.



Gracious and sentimental toast were made
to mark such a memorable occasion and event.

Another genius addition
the 'stemmed glass' in the lower right corner
is from Ikea
and 
they stack!!
Talk about party perfection!!
These beauties are perfect for any drinks
and 
the fact they stack
means they can be collected and stored in mass!

See what i mean about genius party styling done
by Hannah and Christy!
With the help of their loving family members!


This is baby Riley
Christy's first grandchild
from her oldest son and his beautiful wife.

Those beads she's chewing on
made specifically for teething babes.
How cool is that!!


As the sun set
market lights came one.

Lights with stands that were built 
specially to accommodate the low table seating.

The party ambiance
truly magical.
My only complaint
was the night seemed to fly by!
It was definitely a party I wish I could push rewind 
and 
do it again!
The evening was that special!


It all  made for such a remarkable and memorable  night
filled with so much love.


Wishing this wonderful couple all the very best in life
as they embark 
on one of life's greatest journeys.

Thank you for letting me not only attend your soiree
but document and share it as well.

Sending you both much love.


As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  1. Just charming - down to the last detail! The only thing missing is what you wore! Did I spy a denim skirt?

  2. Well done Lost Roses!! Yes indeed the denim skirt and striped espadrilles … were indeed mine! Although I was quite happy with my ensemble which also consisted of an off the shoulder blue and white top with an antique wrapped shawl … I failed to get a shot in my excitement for the evening!

    Thanks so much for visiting my dear!

  3. Oh this is beyond beautiful Tamera. Every detail is an inspiration. Love that baby basket/cradle, and the tiny shoes at the end make me smile. The two girls look so happy and beautiful together. Best wishes to all. xx

  4. Nice photographs of your baby shower ceremony. These family moments are really memorable one. New parents always face problem while taking care of their children. Guests always get confused about the gifts what they will take. I remember three years ago, I had faced this problem. I got quite embarrassed when I get to know that it was not the appropriate gift for the day. Anyways, nice post it is. It was worth reading.
