Cute As a Button Baby Shower

Last week I had the pleasure of sharing the beautiful backyard bridal shower that Brianne Walker of  Sean Walker Photography planned for her best friend and today I am thrilled to be sharing Brianne’s own baby shower! Brianne’s mom and sister planned an adorable “cute as a button” themed shower with pretty lady-like details in celebration of the upcoming birth of Brianne’s little baby boy. Buttons made an appearance on the invitations, as cute little cookies and sprinkled throughout the decor. I love a shower like this! It’s simple and lovely and incredibly approachable. Thanks so much for sharing, Brianne, and a big congratulations to you and Sean on the new addition to your family!

A Birthdayween Party

The endlessly creative Erin of Bird & Banner planned a fabulous birthdayween party for her daughter Elsa last year that I couldn’t resist sharing with you. They celebrated with pumpkin cupcakes, music, dancing and Halloween costumes. Favors were super balls wrapped like ghosts and guests were asked to sign chalkboard ghosts. I love this kind of party! Great fun, festive decorations, playful favors and really cute costumes. Does it get any better?
