My life has been full of many sweet moments that I am always deeply thankful for. Topping my list of favorite experiences has to be having witnessed a cherished friend of many years carry her first child while knowing exactly how long and deeply she has dreamed for that exact season of life. In fact, the euphoric feeling I had as I watched my dear friend Lora become more and more overjoyed as her due date approached was very familiar to me. Having the honor to frequently witness many couples anxiously anticipate a wedding celebration that has danced through their dreams across their lives, conjures up the same energy and excitement within that never seems to grow old. The opportunity to channel my excitement into the planning and coordination of Lora’s modern baby boy shower, couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. With a smile that lights up a room and a personality that tends to draw everyone near, she was sure to have an equally inviting baby boy. With that in mind, I chose a palate of crisp white with deep hues of turquoise, orange, and brown accents. These color choices, along with a buffet of homemade scrumptious finger foods and desserts, a sophisticated ‘Bellini Bar’, and a ‘Create Your Own Bib or Onsie Station’, created a fun and relaxed atmosphere that led guests to linger for hours. What’s better than watching a close friend carry her first baby or a young couple anticipate their wedding day? Seeing the new mother hold her newborn child for the first time and a young couple kiss for the first time as husband and wife never fail to fill any person fortunate enough to be close by with an indescribable and uninhibited happiness.
