I’ve told you before that I work with some of the most talented ladies (and gents!) in all of the land, right? Well today I have visual proof! Our darling editor, Mrs. Abby C, recently threw this gorgeous baby shower for a dear friend of hers and I can’t even get over all of the cute. The theme? “April Showers Brings May Flowers” – with umbrella cookies and handcut ombre raindrops to boot. Catch the entire party in all of it’s adorable glory right here.

From Abby C… I had the pleasure of hosting a shower for my good friend and neighbor, and when I found out that she was having a girl – I wanted to do something a little less focused on pink and more focused on lovely. Because the baby is due in May and the shower was being thrown in April, we decided to do a loose “April Showers Bring May Flowers” theme with a pretty pastel and gold color palette. From there, it was just fun. I pulled a pretty green ikat fabric which with the help of my darling mother, made custom runners for our kitchen island and dining table. I purchased the “clouds” over the island from Luna Bazaar and made the ombre raindrops (inspired by this), I custom made all the signage to make it feel a bit more personal (including a coat check) and one of my lovely co-hosts, Elizabeth Suever, baked all the delicious treats. It was such a fun shower to pull together, and now we just can’t wait to welcome the newest addition to our neighborhood in May!
