"Ahoy! It's a boy" Baby Shower

I had the honor to help throw a baby shower to one of my dearest and best friends. It was such an honor and so much fun to do so. 

The theme was Nautical. We wanted to keep it clean, simple, sophisticated and classic.

I was responsible for invitations, welcome sign, some dessert and more...  I designed them and created them. Everything was custom.. from the invites, to the envelopes.. I was so excited when they were finished! next to my wedding invitations, I loved the way it turned out. 

Next was the welcome sign.. which I also created! It's my new favorite thing to do. I tried to keep it simple but once the chalk hit the board.. I just kept going! 

We greeted guest with a mimosa bar and some games before each guest headed outside.

The dessert bar was STUNNING! It was was filled with so much beautiful detail..

My cousin Francine made her famous Red Velvet White Chocolate chip cookies... It was delicious. I can't lie, I ate about 4-5.

Macarons were from Bon Epi. I also ordered these and I was really frustrated because I ordered 50 blue-velvet macarons, 20 red velvet, 10 vanilla and 10 coconuts and when I showed up, they were teal. I threw a tantrum and my husband had to literally pull me out of the cafe to get me to calm down. I will not use them again.

Other desserts served was Pie, These cute little anchor cookies that Melissa baked (adorable) and cup cakes.

The drink station was set up so cute. Lemonade and Iced Tea.. along with canned drinks with paper straws. So sweet looking!

The food buffet had the most amazing spread! 

Caprese Skewers & Fruit Salad from Yasmin (AMAZING)

The pasta salad was delicious, the Quiche.. OMG the QUICHE was scrumptious- and the blue berry muffins were baked fresh too. I couldn't get enough of brunch. I ate 2 servings!

Oh the TABLE SETTING.. SWOON! the table setting was straight out of a magazine! It was so nice.

I got these little sailboats while vacationing in Carolina Beach. It was perfect for the occasion! I was so excited to use them too!

and the Mommy-to-be- Vanessa! She looked so cute in her nautical striped dress!

Here is the Mommy to be with the hostesses! I love these girls!!
