Home Confetti: February 2015

Friends gathered for this fun shower to celebrate the upcoming arrival of Baby K (K for their last Kovanda). Many guests contributed with personalized gifts such as the Princess K tray. Inspired by the nursery colors, handmade bunting and yarn balls were used for the decor. Guests enjoyed great food and making the baby a custom onesie. One of the mom-to-be's favorite gifts was the navy blue growth chart. Thank you to North Carolina photographer, April Lambert, for capturing and sharing all the wonderful details.

My husband and I are pretty low-key when it comes to Valentine's Day. I'm not big on jewelry and I don't like the crowded pre-fixe menus restaurants serve. But, since Valentine's Day does fall on a Saturday night this year, I am content enough to just share and enjoy a bottle of vino or bubbly after the kids go to bed. I shared these printables from All For the Memories on Facebook yesterday but thought it was worth re-sharing here if you need a quick idea for your special someone.

I hope your day is filled with love tomorrow--whatever form that might come in or however you choose to enjoy it!

Smash cake sessions are an adorable keepsake usually done to celebrate a first birthday. This is probably the only time when baby gets to dive into a pile of icing with mom's approval! But rarely do we see the aftermath when it's time for baby to get all cleaned up. I love how Florida photographer, Stephanie Dishman, took us from pre-smash to smashing the cake to getting her cute subject all cleaned up. It really creates a storyboard of the day. And it's kind of like getting 3 photo shoots in one. Enjoy!

I was a bit absent last week. I admit when work and mommy life get busy, the blog gets sacrificed. But this beautiful unicorn party submitted by Washington's Heather Lynn Photographie got me motivated! There are so many magical details. I simply love the gold metallic table runner, the white furry bean bag seats that look like two clouds and the unicorn crafts. Make sure to check out the bottom for other participating vendors.
