Lisa, Kaytlyn (friends from church), and I threw a baby shower for a couple in our “life group” at Long Hollow Baptist. This couple is obviously so loved; just look at this turnout!
Sweet tea, lemonade, and water were all available to cool off on the hot summer day.
We went with a tea party theme. I found sweet little teapots at Target and from a friend and used them as flower vases. The hydrangeas are from our yard, and the other flowers seemed just right for a baby girl. A generous co-worker, Nancy (or Queen Nancy as I call her), let me borrow this beautiful bunting! She actually loaned us the majority of the items for our shower. So grateful to her!
The little teacups were inherited from my grandmother. We gave sweet baby Sailor a children’s Bible called “The Jesus Storybook Bible.” It’s my very favorite children’s Bible as it is jam-packed with good theology and truth! Guests signed the book and addressed it to the already-much-loved Baby Sailor Elise.
Then, they wrote notes of encouragement for Mom and Dad to read on those weary nights. The goal was to make every inch of the space girly. This was snapped before I nestled the last of the flowers in place.
And here they are in place!
My friend Kaytlyn’s ultra-talented mother in law made us treats in the mint-and-pink theme.
We served chicken salad croissants, pimento cheese, and fresh fruit.
Love seeing these ladies laugh and giggle. They couldn’t be kinder or sweeter!
This little lady is destined to be a happy little beauty like her folks! Soultatos family, we hope you know you are always supported as you seek to raise up this little one well. We are here for you and praying for you!
