becky's boho baby shower (and blue!)
had the loveliest baby shower over the weekend.
my color just happened to be blue that day,
could it be a sign about the baby?!
(they are waiting to be surprised about the sex but my guess has been boy all along)
(not that i'm into assigning colors to sexes or anything...ugh! but my vintage denim and patchwork would look pretty cute on a bouncy baby boy)
she is due in just a couple weeks....so exciting!
i walked into her mother-in-law's pretty home, saw all those sweet women gathered for the baby shower, which was not co-ed, and thought ever-so-exuberantly, LADIES AND BABIES!
becky's baby shower naturally featured lots of lovelies in vintage thrifted clothes (a passion we pretty much all share),
good conversation, fresh lemonade, and handmade gifts....just the way a baby shower should be.
her momma, who is native american, made the gorgeous party favors and talked about their special meaning.
we were blessed to have some amazing cuddly babies present.
and each of becky's gifts was so thoughtful...check out monique's charming wrapping-job, below.
the theme seemed to (inadvertently) be birds.
perfect for a little nestling.
brittany made this darling rustic mobile.
lesley felted the most precious little mama birdy, egg and nest.
and farmer jenny grew and decorated this gourd rattle!
what girly party would be complete without cupcakes, of course,
jenny got the blue notice apparently...
what a brilliant summer sky in her thrifted betsy johnson dress!
and addie was enchanted by griffin, the little pup.
here's becky with kara, her lovely sister-in-law who helped prepare for the shower:
and below is karen, becky's mother-in-law (kara's mum) who hosted the shower.
she pointed out my head scarf and said that she had almost identical fabric that her in-laws had brought home from austria over thirty years ago.
she brought it down to show me, and it matched mine perfectly!
sweet karen is a good mama. her gift basket to becky included jorden's baby things...the bear that he slept with until he went to college and his two favorite baby blankets. now vintage of course, and in gorgeous condition. she talked about him as a little boy and how he loved these items.
then she looked right in becky's eyes and said, "so these are from my baby...to yours."
it made me tear up a bit. mothers are amazing.
