Party/event planning is one of my favorite things to do. I secretly want to be a wedding planner because I love planning all of the little details to make an event come to life. When I got to return the favor of throwing one of my best friends a baby shower I was so excited!! Taylor Ruth, another one of my best friends, co-hosted the event with me. Several weeks ago we began to plan for this beautiful garden party that would take place late in the evening for our momma-to-be.
Even though I love planning events, food is not where my specialty is. So Taylor’s amazing husband Dave, who is an outstanding cook and has catered several events said he would love to do the food! I was so happy because I knew it would be top notch coming from him. I told Taylor they could plan all of the food and I would handle the decorations and desserts.
When deciding on the decoration and dessert I knew one thing, I had to get some of my favorite wedding vendors I work with to help me. I called up Sweet and Such to design the amazing hand painted cookies and the naked cake. I also knew Love and Bloom Flower farm was my go to girl for my florals. Once we saw that our white tent and the outdoor event was not going to happen from the downpour of rain over the few days leading up to the shower, I started to get a little nervous since we had planned all of the flowers for tables. Once Love and Bloom arrived at the location to start the decorations my nerves subsided because I knew she would make it all amazing and she did just that plus more!!
Dave talked my husband Rubem into helping him out. Little did he know that he would be wearing a black suit and tie. The two of them served all the ladies and Ben an amazing 5-course meal. They never let up serving us food and drinks.
Our momma to be was truly blessed with so many loved ones that came to celebrate this sweet bundle of joy. She was showered with the most adorable gifts that she will get so much use out of. We can not thank everyone enough for coming and hope you enjoyed the night. I know everyone is beyond excited for this little girl to make her appearance. She is so loved already and such a blessed little girl to have Casey and Ben as parents! I hope you enjoy a few sneak peaks from the fun event!
