i knew this was going to be a party to remember.
with brooke (&her crew) + jackie + lauren + ahna on decorating/design/food/ambience duty – the result will ALWAYS be amazing. seriously.
& that’s exactly what it was.
our beautiful friend valentina is expecting her very first baby, benedict eli, on october 5.
valentina is not your typical girl, so they didn’t throw her a typical baby shower! the party was themed: wine & cheese.
the photos say it all – literally every detail was remembered [WHICH I LOVE] from the food, to the music, to the drinks, to the LOCATION . . . it was a gorgeous evening on the patuxent river. like, seriously. just look at these photos! what!?!
each table was decorated with a simple glass vase, lots babies breath & yellow water (yup – – just a few drops of food coloring, y’all.) ps: benedict’s favorite colors are gray & yellow – in case you didn’t know.
the food – any cheese you can think of, every cracker you love & grapes. hello. it’s that simple. the presentation is what killed it. they are masters. ugh. beautiful.
the drink set-up was exquisite as well: homemade sangria, homemade lemonade & wine. lots of wine. guests were asked to bring their favorite bottle – brilliant.
valentina isn’t much of a “games” girl either – so the night literally consisted of everyone mingling, laughing & enjoying each other.
you’ll notice lots of mustaches as decorations too. adorable. benedict is a special boy & extremely fancy, so the mustaches make sense.
dessert was delicious – homemade cake & homemade cupcakes. every cupcake flavor you’ve dreamed about – it was there.
brooke+crew/jac/lauren/ahnie – you did amazing & you made photographing way more exciting. let’s start a wedding business, k?
valentina & scott – benedict is one blessed baby boy – can’t wait to meet him!!
