For baby #2, I knew I would not do a big shower again but after everything we went through to get to this point, I know I wanted to celebrate this life we have worked so hard to create. My one friend had always envisioned a little beach picnic celebration and the idea kind of stuck as something we both dreamt about as I went through fertility treatment. With the pandemic still looming, I knew whatever I did would be a TINY outdoor celebration with my fully vaccinated friends (and sister). When I brought the idea up, my sweet friends just took over the party planning reins and surprised me with such a beautiful day.
They set up this chic little beach picnic with some of my favorite things. Sandwiches and food from my favorite french bakery, Cest Si Bon, charcuterie board from Charcutereats, and a cake and cookies from one of my favorite bakeries, SusieCakes. When I walked up to the the table though, the things that melted my heart was the table decor. My friend had Otis color some rainbows and used them as a decor element with some dried florals on the plates. MY HEART BURST. My photographer and dear friend Felicia also has a floral business called Anthurium Untold and did the floral design for the tables. PoppyJackShop did some of the other decor pieces as well which was special since she has been a part of many of my special events.
We ate, we laughed, and we stuck our toes in the sand. It was truly a perfect day celebrating this sweet little baby boy. Linking all the beautiful details below. Anything that I don’t link below are vintage pieces that my friends personal collection of decor.
