Ahoy its a Boy Baby Shower!

My BFF from College is having a baby boy in less than a month! We headed to Raleigh a few weeks ago to throw her a baby shower in her new house. Crazy right? But out of the seven hostesses only one lived in Raleigh and she was in the process of moving. I think it worked out really well! We kicked the mama-to-be out of the house with her Mom and future sis-in-law and sent them shopping while we decorated (and drank).

Elie wanted to go with a nautical theme for the baby's room so we carried that through to the shower. Thanks to Pinterest and my friend over at Pink to Green I think we all threw a gorgeous baby shower!

A special thank you to the Cupcake Shoppe in Raleigh! I wanted to use my favorite local Charlotte cake woman but she was booked solid! I googled "cakes in raleigh" and Cupcake Shoppe popped up. I confirmed with MJG that they were indeed fabulous and called them right up. I emailed the invite and look what they came up with?!!!
Perfect and delicious cake from The Cupcake Shoppe

Look at the rope detail!!!

Drink table with Mimosas, Tea and the Prego fave... Diet Cherry 7-Up

The spread! Perfect in Elie's red dining room! Betsy-Please get that pimiento cheese recipe..the rollups were out of this world! The Chicken Salad croissants filled me up and thank goodness counter-balanced the Mimosas. :)

Thank you for the idea Megan! All the guests wrote a sweet message to baby boy that will be opened on his first birthday!

We had such a wonderful time and are so excited for Elie & Charlie!



  1. What a fun theme for a baby shower

  2. So cute! Love the message in a bottle idea a,

  3. Turned out so cute! Love that she had it at her house- she didn't have to move the gifts and everyone could see the nursery!
