Our friends moved back to town after almost two years in Washington!
Chelsea is due in April with her 2nd baby: a boy.
I threw her a small little shower in honor of their move back and to welcome baby boy.
The weather has been lovely, so I went with a classy backyard picnic theme.
It was so fun to decorate and plan for.
I even made a playlist of country music that consisted of numerous songs about boys and babies.
I used a lot of gingham (my favorite) and chalkboards for the decorations.
Metal cans, twine, flowers, and some fun bunting helped finish off the look.
I wish I had a picture of the invites! I used craft wood and iron on transfer paper. It was awesome and I was obsessed with them!
The menu is written on an old tray that I spray painted with chalkboard paint. I made Pioneer Woman’s Sheet Cake in cupcake form and some Mini-Apple pies. YUM! I totoally forgot to take a vertical pic that showed the banner above the food. it was white fabric and twine and said”OH, BOY!” and I loved it. I meant to send it home with the mama-to-be! So, Chels, if you are reading this, it’s yours!
