Kelsey’s baby shower was ages ago (it was in July!). In fact, “peanut” as he or she is fondly called by mom and dad, is expected to arrive any day now. However, we’ve been very busy this summer and haven’t gotten to post the pics until right now…better late than never, right? We had SO much fun planning this shower with the gorgeous mama-to-be.  The hot air balloon theme is beyond adorable. To help make it come to life we replicated Kelsey’s shower invitation onto a chalkboard welcome sign, made an adorable hanging hot air balloon centerpiece, and created little flags with theme-appropriate phrases and photos to stick in the delicious food.  The colors Kelsey chose: peach, minty green, baby blue and yellow, were brought out in the adorable fabric we found and used to tie the bamboo cutlery and also in the buntings that hung over the fireplace and windows.  The flowers were a mix of Lambs Ear and Dahlia’s, arranged in twine/ribbon-wrapped mason jars (which we made at the craft party a few weeks before the shower).  We particularly loved the mimosa bar, which guests drank out of mason jars and paper straws.  There was so much gorgeous detail in this shower, and you really just need to look at the pix to see it all. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

ps- the GORGEOUS photography was done by Leigh at Nadra Photography. SO amazing. Thank you, Leigh!
