Avery's Vintage Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I was so blessed to have the most beautiful baby shower given to me by family when I was about 32 weeks pregnant. 

When Avery was about 7 weeks along our doctor said that it looked like she was holding a balloon celebrating during an ultrasound. So from that moment I had my heart set on having a hot air balloon themed party. The shower was held at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale under their outside pavilion. It was a stunning location right on the ocean. We had gorgeous weather and I had the best time! Here are the pictures from this special day....I have to warn you this is a very picture heavy post!

Love this chalkboard illustration welcoming guests to the shower! It was done by an amazing company called Unearthed Vintage. They also provided a lot of the decor for the shower including the farmhouse tables and chairs!

 Place settings and favors

 Personalized Avery pens for the games

Table numbers, flowers in mason jars and a floral table runner


Each seat had a paper fan to decorate the back!

The place cards were done by an amazing Etsy seller and were hung on vintage shutters!

 Prayer bookmarks with Avery's verse, 1 Samuel 1:27

 Pashminas to keep guests warm!
 Beautiful sitting area with vintage luggage and pashminas

 Custom art with Avery's bible verse...it's now hanging in her nursery!

A beautiful dresser held all of the candy and dessert!



 These key lime cupcakes from Candy's Cakepops are the best!



French macaroons :)

 



 My favorite flowers, hydrangeas

 Pink hydrangea and candelabras

 Fingerprint hot air balloon replaced the typical guest book


Avery's headband station!




 Avery's gifts were placed on a vintage wagon!

 The chair where I opened gifts :)

We played one game, what is in your purse!




 Opening presents - my sister helping me! I was wearing a Diane Von Furstenburg wrap dress and Kira sandals from JCrew.


Kris surprised me at the shower with flowers and a new engagement ring! He had a halo setting added to my ring for our Angel Avery! It was the best moment!
