Sep16 Ritzy Bee Shower 2014

Beatrice Lily was welcomed into the world four weeks ago, but before that friends and family came around to celebrate and anticipate her arrival. The event was held at the mother-to-be and event planner extraordinaire Maria of Ritzy Bee’s home .  The event was hosted by fellow Ritzy Bee genius Kelly and Suann of Simplesong Design.

Here’s Maria with a few of her favorite shower details:

“The invitation was an adorable carved wood B block with the details of the shower wrapped around them on a letter pressed card folded around the block…set on a little nest and mailed in a beautiful box. They took off a spin off my nursery animal menagerie theme and put adorable moss baby animals (giraffe, elephant & bears) around my house for decor…and the B wreath motif was made into a beautiful custom fabric used for the table runner, pillows and onto the panels of the outside bar.”

Sep02 A baby shower around a farm table 2014

A shower celebrated at the home of the soon-to-be grandparents with a gorgeous meal around a farm table built by the grandfather. The soon-to-be parents are also photographers and took fabulous photos of their shower. The whole thing is so classy and tasteful, I can’t get enough.
