Friends, quit jumping to conclusions, this is not a baby announcement! I just had to find a clever way to get you reading – it’s been a while.
In fact, when I planned this fruity & floral baby shower for one of my best gal pals, Ali, she was still preggers with her baby g. Now, little Margaret is here, adorable and healthy as ever. Amen.
I had so much fun helping Ali celebrate her first with a boat full of friends, flower crowns and some pretty entertaining baby shower games. I’m sure you could hear us laughing from the other side of the lake. Honestly, life just doesn’t get much better. Hop on board for a party overload!Momma to be and me! Isn’t she the cutest?!
What really sealed the fun factor was that we had the party on a boat! Thanks to baby daddy Aric for being our El Capitan!Flower crowns made fresh from Babe Blooms, greeted everyone when they hopped on board.
There was no guessing what gender baby was with plenty of pinks, purples and all things girly. The theme was “Fruity & Floral,” and I just think those two go hand in hand, especially on a hot summer day in Austin, Texas.Baby [girl] daddy!How great is this spread?! But everything you need for a great party?: mimosas and cake. Speaking of cake, it’s no surprise I love making cakes (check out some of my previous ones here and here). But it’s pretty rare to find a friend that enjoys making them too! My girl Meggie made this incredibly delish and beautiful cake for the party. No question, we all had seconds.
Naturally, to keep the theme alive, I ordered some cookies to add an additional sugar rush to the table. These fruity sugar cookies, made by a friend at Sugar Brookies, were as tasty as they were cute!
…But wait, there’s more!
It ALSO just so happened to be Ali’s 30th birthday! So we added in a little 30th birthday touch to make her feel extra special!Photo backdrop courtesy of the 360 bridge on Lake Austin. What a perfect day with the perfect crew!Welcome to the world baby Margaret! We love you! <3
