I’m finally sharing a baby shower I helped throw for my best friend Beth. I’ve talked about it a bit on the blog, but I’ll refresh you; she had 3 very life changing events take place a matter of a few months; she let go of her business, moved halfway across the country, and had her second baby (and the day after she turned 30)! Needless to say, she was a little overwhelmed, so it was important to just have a nice, pretty day to think about the coming of her baby girl.
It wasn’t a large shower, just a small gathering of friends for a pot luck brunch and baby-headband-making outside in her gorgeous yard. Beth’s only request was that there should be lots and lots of fresh flowers, so we drove out to the flower mart downtown on Thursday morning and picked a bunch of flowers, and I spent Friday making floral arrangements and baking her pink ombré cake. Saturday was her shower; it was a gorgeous day, most of which was not even remotely fully captured because I forgot to have freshly charged batteries in my camera! But the photos of the flowers came out pretty amazing, I can’t deny that. Be prepared for a lot of photos of drop dead gorgeous flowers!
Beth’s baby girl, Fawn, was born at home a little over a week after this photo was taken, and it happened to be the day after her 30th birthday! Pretty amazing, huh?!
Those flowers are absolutely STUNNING! You are so lucky to have a flower shop with such variety this time of year!! Beautiful!
We got the flowers from the flower mart downtown, which supplies much of Southern California! :D It’s awesome living in a port city!
