Baby Shower for Duke

Partieskacee geoffroyComment

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!

This weekend was a good one!!!  I kicked it off with a facial on Friday, which was such a luxury.  I was excited to try Facial Works in Newport since I'd only heard rave reviews of it's adorable atmosphere and awesome treatments.  I opted for the Anti-Aging treatment because I feel like the second I turned 30 the skin game was on.  Hello crow's feet!!!  More on that whole decadent experience tomorrow!

 Sunday we celebrated my cousin and her bun in the oven at her baby shower. Check out all the sweetness on Snapchat today @LifewithLipstick  I love a good party!  We decked out my parent's home with gorgeous long family style tables donned with gorgeous driftwood and succulent centerpieces.  We nibbled on fresh sweet and savory crepes and sipped champagne.  I can't wait to get my hands on her new little guy this November!  #givemeallthebabies 

This week I get to play with Peyton at her Kindergarten field trip to the LA Zoo.  I live for field trips and class parties.  I can't wait to see the monkey's and spend the day with my little peanut.
