When an interior designer, cater, and her crafty friends get together to host a baby shower you can believe it is anything but ordinary. This “Little Man” baby shower was shared by Whitney, an interior designer by day. The special event was put together with love for a great friend, Stacey. Many details for the shower were inspired by the father-to-be. The airplane mechanic Daddy likes: beer, cigars, whiskey, and great food. The colors were pulled from the colors of the bedding in hopes that she could use any of the decor in the nursery if she wanted. Nearly everything was handmade for this shower from the accordion circles to the cupcakes stands. A time saving tip that Whitney shared with me was how the shower hostesses were able to use group Pinterest board to share ideas and brainstorm and google documents to organize details without having to meet up too many times. Thanks for the tip! The photos are provided by Sherfield Photography and party details can be found below the great photos.
