A Baby Shower IN the Creek

Last summer I saw these photos of a neighboring town’s creek party pop up on Facebook. There were tables and chairs and loungers, etc. all set up in the creek and I was so taken with the idea that I could hardly stand it.

I NEEDED a creek party in my life.

What better opportunity to make that come to fruition than in celebration of my best friend’s newest little love? Dear friends of ours had the perfect creek for it too, and so plans were set in motion.

I can’t tell you how happy I am with how everything came together. With a lot of help from my amazing fellow hostesses, we pulled it off and it was such a beautiful evening. :)

Fair warning: once you see these photos, you’re going to NEED a creek party in your life too!

Enjoy. :)

I just kept taking photos of everything because it was so pretty.

Consequently, you will keep looking at photos of everything because I’m in an oversharing mood today.

Thank you, Jessica and Bekah, for going along with my hair-brained scheme and helping me execute it so beautifully.

And thank you, Rachel, for making another gorgeous baby and giving us a reason to celebrate. We love you!

Children’s Book Review: Where’s the Party?

We met Ruth a few years back when she was a client of ours and I fell in love with her whimsical artwork immediately. I’ve also loved following her Instagram posts about the unlikely bond between her real life pets Georgie, the cat, and Feta, the dog.
