467 // backyard baby shower
Remember that baby shower I gave you a glimpse of a few weeks back? Today I’m sharing the rest of the sweet soirée. My friend Lauren Bradshaw of Walnut Animal Society (the cutest stuffed animals you ever did see) is expecting her 2nd baby boy very soon, so I teamed up with Audrey Woollen and Melody Hansen to throw her a celebratory shower in my backyard.
My backyard was transformed when I brought out the dining table from our previous house (currently stored in the garage) and rented those gorgeous bentwood chairs from Yeah Rentals. I found those white vintage fiberglass chairs that sit at each end of the table at the Long Beach Flea Market which make great captain’s chairs.
I made a few changes in the lounge area, just for the party, by switching out my cushions for some rentals and adding the pattern backdrop. I also swapped out the fireplace for a wicker peacock chair to give Lauren a proper throne that the expectant momma clearly deserves. :) It was our first time getting to entertain in the new patio space and I couldn’t love it any more.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this fun fête, and my backyard, in a whole new light. To get all the details and see a ton more photos head over to 100 layer cakelet where it is being featured today!
