Baby Shower for Duke

My cousin Jenna has a bun in the oven and we couldn't be more excited to share her gorgeous baby shower from a couple weeks back.  My mom and I adore throwing parties and we we so giddy to get to dream up the perfect shower for baby Duke!  We envisioned a seaside feel with fresh white blooms and succulents scattered amongst driftwood.  We topped the table with burlap and layered on a frayed edged runner and a blue and white striped searsucker runner.  The straw chargers where topped with white china and blue and white napkins in mix matched patterns to create some interest.  We sipped custom mimosas and noshed on handmade crepes.  I was a piggy and had two because I couldn't decide if I wanted a sweet or savory crepe.  I went with a California Sunrise which was made up with avocado, egg, bacon and sun-dried tomatoes.  For my second option, I chose a Cinnamon Apple crepe with carmel and mascarpone cheese.  I mean!!! Now you know why I had two! We kept the games simple and opted for baby bingo.  As we ate and mingled, each guest could drop a sweet message to the mama to be in our message in a bottle station.  As Jenna, opened up presents we cut the gorgeous succulent topped cake which was chocolate with a raspberry filling. It was heaven!  

Thank you to all the amazing vendors that helped create our vision for the day!
