One of my best friends since high school, K, is expecting her own sweet little man in November. So, friends C, L and myself put together this sweet shower for K and Baby Henry. Here are the details–and the adorableness, if I do say so myself. And I have to give props to Amanda at Dixie Delights for the idea behind this shower. You can see her original ideas here.
L took care of the invitations which I think turned out pretty precious.
In keeping with the Southern theme, we served Southern foods–cheese straws, chicken salad sandwiches, pimento cheese sandwiches–and some standard shower foods like fruit and nuts. And of course the ever-so-chic-these-days cupcakes were a part of the spread as well. I made the little blue bowtie toppers with toothpicks and some hot glue, and they were adorable. L brought the pretty plant as the centerpiece and it looked gorgeous–and the blue and white container matched my kitchen PERFECTLY.
We kept the drinks Southern as well with Amanda’s great sweet tea bar idea. I LOVE this and definitely see more sweet tea bars in my entertaining future. I made the lemonade myself. It was my first time making homemade lemonade, and it came out sweet and tart and nicely refreshing. I had lemon wedges, lime wedges, and mint leaves in the small silver handled bowl set. I was also able to pull out my wedding crystal which was nice. And I have a friend with the same pattern, so she loaned me a few of her glasses so I would have enough.
The shower was lovely, and we had a blast. Several high school friends from out of town made it into town, and it was so wonderful to see them all again. K got some sweet outfits, some really useful stuff like diapers and bibs, and the three hostesses were able to go in together and get her the much needed Pack n’ Play.
K and I have been friends for over 16 years!!! I can’t believe it. I am so excited for her and her husband and just can’t wait to get my hands on sweet baby Henry.
