the last supper…

3 Sep

i imagine that when you’re pregnant, time seems to go by very slow, and it’s not until the very end, that it seems to come too fast. i say this because my dear friend genevieve is going through just that. what seemed to be months and months of her being pregnant, has now turned into just days remaining. so things that someone would usually treat as something grand , loses its importance when compared to the arrival of a baby. and by grand, i mean birthdays! genevieve just wanted a simple dinner with her family, but in my head i was thinking, this could be “the last supper” pre baby, pre chaos and just all together for that matter. so i turned the  simple dinner into balloons, confetti and sparklers!! here’s some pics of genevieve’s grand  birthday!!

happy birthday genevieve!!!

… a shower …

1 Aug

i can’t think of a better way to celebrate the growth of a new life then with a shower, and that’s exactly what we did this past weekend.  my dear friend genevieve is a little less then 8 weeks away from meeting the newest addition to her family, and if the anticipation of this little ones arrive wasn’t enough, the lovely couple has decided to keep the sex of the baby a surprise. ahhhhh!!! what a lovely shower we did have though.  the natural and organic theme was the perfect backdrop to this sweet little party.

some of my favorite moments of the day:

  1. the birthday wishes filled out by each guest, to be opened each year on the babies birthday
  2. genevieve asking how she will know what nipples to use with what bottle and when
  3. listening to everyones reactions to the impossibly perfect baby room
  4. the table scape that housed the most charming party favors
  5. all the itsy bitsy baby clothes that i can’t wait to see on this secret little baby
  6.  the nap i got that afternoon after three days of preparing what i think was the most inspired shower i’ve ever seen

our dear friends and the happy expecting couple

the charming favors i was talking about. little tree’s to plant and watch grow, as their little one grows

the spread

this is the cake i practiced for at my birthday.
