We started off March ready to celebrate two new babies! The first baby, Mason, is being born to Michelle's dear friends, Brett and Lacee. Mason is their first baby (if you don't count the two furry, four-legged boys they already have) and they couldn't be happier about welcoming him into their family. Michelle offered to throw this baby shower back in November of 2010 and knew that Summer would be the perfect companion to help make the event a success--this was long before "It's an Eventful Life" had even been dreamt up! March came way too quickly, but everything worked out perfectly and Lacee really enjoyed her baby shower. Brett and Lacee wanted to do a co-ed baby shower/BBQ so they could invite all of their friends over at once. I think it was a smart idea on their part so that there wasn't a barrage of guests coming to see her before Mason is born...any day now!!!! Here are some pictures from the event:
We decorated the inside and the outside with yards and yards and yards and yards of our hand-sewn bunting flags in a pretty combination of teal, baby blue, brown, yellow, white, green, and coordinating plaid. The flags were a simple but stunning touch to the whole layout.
We over-planned on games, but we think it's better to be safe than sorry! Our fun guessing games kept guests entertained all night!
A table with party favors and some photos from Lacee's maternity photo shoot Michelle did welcomed guests.
These sweet little tin pails were filled with fluffy cotton, shimmery little balls, and gerbera daisies (green to match Mason's room and they are also Lacee's favorite flower!) were the centerpieces on each table.
Being at an outside BBQ meant there was lots of yummy, but simple food: chips and dip, tortilla chips and salsa, cucumber-dill finger sandwiches, green-chile tortilla roll-ups, and carrots and celery! This was the appetizer table. The main dishes came out later: potato salad, fruit salad, pasta salad, chicken kabobs, and Kronskies--their family's Italian market sausages!
Aren't these the cutest cupcakes you've ever seen?! Lacee absolutely loved them! Good work, Summer!
If you or someone you know is having a baby soon, we'd love to help plan that party! Contact us now!
