You are in for a treat. some of my favorite girls in Nashville threw a perfect picnic for our first baby. I hope you can get some great shower ideas from these lovely ladies. From the food to the theme it was all them, I’m just going to give away all their ideas!
My lovely party planning committee with amazing photography from Susie A.
Let’s start with the fun decorations:
Welcome chalkboard by Allison Buzard (who also hosted the party)
A fun banner with his name, made by my scrap-booking buddy Greta Ball
Since my favorite holiday (Independence day) was just a few days prior one of my college roommates made 2 great centerpieces out of FIREWORKS. Thanks Abigail Dowell!
A great statement piece for the middle of the table was this beautiful picnic basket. I love when people add functional kitchen elements to a table. What a lovely idea Blair.
These girls went over the top with the food & beverages too:
Since my ladies (Abigail & Cambrey) were so sweet to not tempt me with wine or a mimosa…. they did come up with some great drinks. Berry Lemonade & Cucumber Herb infused water and of course we live in the south so everything was served in a Mason Jar!
To you it may just be a veggie tray but I just wanted to show you how you have step up a veggie tray without it being over the top or cheesy! All credit goes to Alyssa Pantana.
These chicken salad tarts were elegant perfect for a shower. And you would not believe how easy they are. Cambrey just bought her favorite chicken salad from Zoe’s Kitchen & spooned it into philo cups from the freezer section of the grocery.
One of the biggest hits of the party were these beautiful cupcakes made by Katie Ward.
I have a little bonus for you… one of my lovely roommates from college, Rachel, made both of these fruit or pretzel dips and also provided us some recipes!
