Au jardin | A garden themed baby shower!

I’ve been looking forward to this post ever since my friend Kat (blogger @ Withywindle) and I decided to host a baby shower together for our friend Johanna! So I’m excited to finally share some pictures from the event.

Couple of things you should know:

  • We decided to make it garden themed partially because Johanna is vegetarian and super healthy…and because it was spring, and because it’s so darn cute!
  • Much of the credit for the way this shower turned out I owe to my friend. She gave up her beautiful house for the event, did most of the decorating and a great deal of the cooking!
  • Many of our ideas were from other blogs which we stumbled upon probably through Pinterest (I’ll credit them below the pics)
  • A classic children’s book can make a great guest book! Have the ladies sign the inside of the book and write a note to the baby
  • Cake Batter popcorn is really really addicting

I learned a lot throwing this little shower. It was so much fun, we had a great turn out, and the food was all delicious! We were pretty pleased, to say the least. Aside from all the baking, I really liked learning to make tissue poms! I hadn’t done any before but my green poms ended up looking like heads of lettuce, which was pretty perfect! 🙂

Here’s one more baby shower idea I had to share from Sea Kettle Diaries –a flowery onesie bouquet! One of the cleverest, prettiest gifts!

Wednesday Roundup | Colorful, Wonderful Spring

With yesterday being the first day of Spring, today is a roundup of some pretty spring-y things… er maybe just things that I thought looked to be for the Spring time.

Spring is definitely one of my favorite seasons. I love seeing the first bunch of tulips that seem to pop up out of no where. Or when the buds on trees suddenly burst with color. Or maybe it’s the smell in the air that gets me, of new life and growth everywhere. People’s moods seem to even brighten up!

On my way home from work yesterday, my feet were feeling so cramped in my flats and I suddenly realized sitting on the train that I can finally start wearing flip flops and sandals again! My feet will be so excited to be free finally! 🙂 We haven’t had a very bad winter (as far as winters go in Boston) but it’s been a really long time since I’ve been able to leave the house in open-toed shoes. It’ll be nice to be comfortable again. Maybe my goal for next year should be to invest in some comfortable flats that fit me right (but that are still cute of course)! I’m so happy it’s Spring time.

But on with the pictures!
