Spring Baby Shower for Baby Beckham

Who doesn’t love a fun party?! (Especially when it involves a gorgeous location, whimsical decor, yummy treats, and adorable gifts?!)

I was so flattered when Randi, of Kay & Co, asked me to be a part of a baby shower photo shoot. Randi did a phenomenal job coordinating this beautiful event held at Cannon Green in downtown Charleston! Hopefully the images (by Taylor Lauren Barker) will inspire you the next time you host a shower!

Gorgeous?! RIght?!

Three great takeaways from this event:

  1. Broaden Your Ideas on Location
    I love the idea that you don’t have to host a shower at your house. I know for us, our living area isn’t always conducive for large parties. So looking for spaces like Cannon Green can be a perfect solution!

  2. Florals, Florals, Florals
    A beautiful bouquet can go a long way for decorating! It can even be easier to go less in some areas, and just let the flowers do the talking.

  3. Create a Fun Backdrop for Taking Pics
    Balloon arches, background greenery, hand-lettered sign…these are all ideas for creating a space that is ideal for taking pictures. Don’t worry about the whole space being picture perfect! Make a specific backdrop that people want to take pictures in front of! (This will also encourage people to take pictures of the fun event!)

I hope these photos inspire some ideas! I’ll list the vendors again below!

New Member of Texture Design Co.

You may have seen on our Instagram that we welcomed a new addition to the Texture Design Co. family! Camille Lynn Kirby was born on July 25th, and it has been the sweetest, hardest, and most memorable past 3 months! People tell you all these things about motherhood, but NONE of it really makes sense until you are in the moment!

She has been my greatest joy and my greatest challenge! I love her so much my heart hurts, and I fall apart thinking about her growing up too fast! At 3am I reminisce on what 8 hours of sleep felt like, but at 6am I cherish her perky morning disposition! Her smile lights up her whole face, and she thinks her daddy is the funniest person she's ever met. She studies everyone and everything in the room, always very aware of her surroundings! I've been trying to take it all in, and I'm learning to enjoy the small moments.

Our good friend, Melissa Griffin Photography, took some amazing photos at Millie's one month milestone! I'm just now getting a chance to share the pics with you!

Oh yes, and a shameless plug for our Charleston themed baby book, but only because I'm so excited about it! This keepsake book is my favorite project to date! I've been documenting Camille's first year in our copy of the book! The great thing about each page is that it isn't overwhelming! You can record the month's highlights in a few minutes...cuz ain't nobody got more time than that! :)

 

Have a great day!
