Hello, June! I’ve sooo been looking forward to you!
We’re gearing up for our very first family vacation to the beach and am SO.EXCITED. I can’t wait to watch Edith experience sand and surf for the first time.
June is also the month when my best friend’s baby is going to make his grand entrance! I was lucky enough to help co-host a shower in his honor a few weeks ago. Best friends. Babies. Babies. Babies.
We wanted to throw a shower fit for a little southern gentleman so there were lots of monograms, gingham and delicious food. For the backdrop, I painted a canvas that mimicked the invitation. The drink table featured some Coca-Cola classics and a crazy good bourbon cocktail that one of the other hostesses made. Desserts paid true homage to the south: banana pudding, lemon squares and a tower of Krispy Kremes! Snacks included chicken salad (don’t you just love that you can expect chicken salad at a southern get together?), cucumber tea sandwiches, pimento finger sandwiches, cheese and pepper jellies (miniature pepper jellies from a local farm were given away as favors), cheese straws and chicken and waffle bites. Maaaaybe the food was a top priority? 🙂
Can’t wait to welcome this little boy!
