A couple weeks back I attend the cutest, laid back baby shower at Woodland Park here in Seattle. Danielle and Alicia put together the vintage travel themed decor and the casual/smart/playful vibe of the event perfectly captured my friend Calen's style.
Calen's maiden name was King and it's going to be the baby boy's middle name so they were able to capture that fun detail in the pendants. With the shower being at a park they put wine in mason jars to make it a little more discreet (and so fun!). Dinner was artisan sandwiches with mixed green salads that they boxed up and had ready to eat. Instead of cake or cupcakes there were chocolate chip cookies and Calen's favorite, Swedish Fish (plus popcorn and cherries on the blankets.)
Instead of traditional baby shower games, we played FRIENDS baby trivia (Calen's favorite show/obsession) and the prize was a gift card to her favorite restaurant. The whole party was so personalized and fun, nothing felt forced like it sometimes can at a baby shower.
We can't wait to meet Baby James King in August! Here are a few pictures of the decor. (And yes, I finally found a romper/jumpsuit at Zara!)
