Entertaining Flowers

Baby Shower

July 21, 2016

We were entirely overwhelmed by our friends efforts and generosity in throwing together our baby shower.  I was hesitant to even have one, but my great friend Ellie McNevin persisted and together with Richard Wheeler (decor) and Anne (Charleston Stems – flowers) the three of them created the most grown up yet playful atmosphere for what turned out to be a long lovely day on a hot summers day in Charleston.  Even my husband Will joined in the end!

Richard decided on blue & white as it felt appropriate for celebrating the imminent arrival of a little boy but also very classic.  He has collected all of these amazing vases over the years which Anne filled with insane amounts of flowers (the entire house was blooming!).   I have found some similar vases which I really love here and I also like this one, which is a different vibe.  Richard decided on blue & white as it felt appropriate for celebrating the imminent arrival of a little boy but also very classic.  He has collected all of these amazing vases over the years which Anne filled with insane amounts of flowers (the entire house was blooming!).   I have found some similar vases which I really love here here and here. The adorable bunting (which we kept up for months!) is from target.  I find there and Michaels to be amazing places to find inexpensive but fun last minute party decor. Richard set the bar up outside, I wasn’t drinking (obviously) but I did insist that friends have plenty of rose and champagne and Richard made me some delicious minty lemonade which went down perfectly on such a hot summers day.  Such My childhood girlfriends even brought cookies from New York 🙂  and we had lots of sweets from Charleston’s own sugar bakeshop. All in all a very sweet day :)!<
