Celebrating A Summer Baby

Last weekend we celebrated Alexis's (Stylelogical) little baby bump with a picnic themed baby shower I put together with my close friend, Stephanie (Domestically Dobson). 

It was a gorgeously sunny afternoon, perfect for an intimate gathering and lots of hearty and tasty food. The sun was great, but I am surprised any of these photographs turned out considering the extreme brightness. Especially since I haven't touched my camera in about six weeks.

Normally I make cakes for parties. Beyond loving baking cakes, it's just a party kind of food. This time I wanted to go for something a little different and stick with the theme, so I opted for a peach pie. It was a great decision since the mama to me was wanting a pie at one of her showers, score!

I also made sliders and we put out some typical picnic sides like watermelon, strawberries and soda. Steph has a great vintage cooler that has it's own bottle top opener. How cool is that?!

I got scraps of fabric from my grandmother's quilting fabric collection that added a little shabby touch on the mason jars and a fun banner topper on the pie. No cake doesn't mean no topper!

We decorated the patio with some vintage chairs for more of that girly, outdoor, shabby feel. The fact that all of the cushions are turquoise was absolute coincidence. 

We had a great time showering Alexis and can't wait to meet her little man come August.
