My best friend from college, Kourtnie with Alaan Studios is celebrating the upcoming arrival of her first bundle of joy. She doesn’t have a name at the moment but we are all so excited for the first little one to join our three peas in a pod (yes three + her beautiful sister in the photo below).
I was happy to help put together her baby shower for the little one. Kourtnie is a neutral and simple girl but obsessed with all things cute…we have the same mindset of attention to details. Her want for the shower was neutral, clean, green and airy. This was my inspiration that I wanted to recreate for the event. Keep scrolling to see how I recreated the look.
I went on the hunt for locations to fulfill certain requirements – greenery and airy being the main things. Although we are in Houston, staying outside during the heat of the day is asking for trouble but we were lucky enough to find a cute Wine & Beer garden in the Houston Heights. They have two outdoor patios with covering/shade a bunch of greenery and a food truck with delicious bites. This was it!
Since this was a coed shower we wanted to have some masculine elements and thought the beer theme would fit perfectly, especially at a beer & wine garden.
The place was already cute so the need for a lot of decor wasn’t necessary. Covering the picnic tables with gingham tablecloths from EfavorMart was a great base and contrast to all the greenery.
I took my time and Youtubed and practiced faux hand lettering and tried my hand at attempting to write “cutesy” on the beer growlers that doubled as floral centerpieces.
