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.”

Sep11 Kelli Murray 2014

One of our fabulous collective members, Acres of Hope Photography recently took some pictures of the most superb designer, blogger, illustrator and style icon Kelli Murray.  A few month back we did a review of Kelli’s blog because it’s one that you should keep an eye on for baby and momma fashion, nursery design finds and more.

There are no words to say about this shoot except that it is absolutely the berries.  Kelli’s clothes are so adorable, the girls’ matching bright blonde hair and booties are precious, plus Rylee’s clear obsession with her handsome father…it’s heart melting.

For the love of the outdoors, this nursery will make you want to go hiking.
GreyLikesBaby AshleighPeak001 Foxy Nursery

The inspiration for Everett’s nursery came from my husband and I’s love of hiking and camping.  We went to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National parks for our babymoon.  We bought the maps, arrow and bear stuffed animal at their visitor centers.  The Amish made rocking chair was passed down to me; My Dad gave it to my Mom when she was pregnant with me.  We bought the Minnetonka moccasin booties in Jackson Hole, WY (while on our babymoon).  The deer painting was done by Bobby Spillman (a friend of ours and local artist).  The accent wall paint is Wish Upon A Star by Farrell Calhoun.  “Everett” banner was made by my best friend for my baby shower.
