you know me. and you know I love a good party.
myself and Andrea’s two college roomies have been planning this special day for months and I cant believe its actually come and gone! tons of Andrea’s closest friends and family gathered at my home to celebrate her baby boy Cohen- and it was such a beautiful day!
wild + free!
side note: my (rather amazing) dress I bought off the sale rack at loft last week after seeing one of my girlfriends look amazing while wearing it at brunch. its actually a petite size maxi dress.. but when you’re just under 5’7 its like the perfect midi length for the fall weather. did I mention that it is NOT maternity. I probably wont be able to wear it here in another month, but its perfect for my 17 week bump!
I catered in the pinwheels + sausage balls and I also had one of my favorite restaurants make their butternut squash hummus for me to serve to the guests.
cream cheese + dill + lemon juice + cucumbers sliced thin
shredded chicken breast + mayo + slivered almonds + grapes + celery
my amazing hubby DIY’d these wooden disks for another baby shower and it proved to be a good project because I’ve used them several times since!
this IS Texas, so there is always sweet tea.
and the easiest sangria you will ever make.
pomegranate juice + fresh strawberries + pomegranate arils + your favorite red wine (I used Cab) + club soda
the hostesses + the guest of honor
it was just the perfect day!
