The Most Gorgeous Garden Baby Shower

I LOVE LOVE LOVE planning parties. The creative process, the outcome, the happiness it brings others. Oddly enough, I never really “loved” it when people fussed over parties in my honour. I don’t know if it’s because I KNOW how much work goes into a well-planned event and I want to spare my loved ones, or because I want to get my little mitts on all the details and be involved (aka take over) LOL!!! … So when Monika & Shay asked if they could plan a baby shower for me, I responded “Oh don’t be silly, you girls are too busy, don’t worry about it!” … The girls had to convince me that it was going to be a simple little going away party (I’ll be leaving Vancouver for Kelowna the week before we have the babe and will be staying there for a few months) and so I agreed and thought it would be so great to see all my Van girls before I left … more so as a farewell and one last get together!!!

What came next nearly knocked me off my feet. When I rolled up to this “baby shower” I felt like I was pregnant with royalty. My eyes welled up with tears when I first laid eyes on the jaw-dropping party the girls put on … all I could think of is: “This is in honour of our little Bean” … I’ve never seen anything SO beautiful in my life. I have NEVER had anything entirely planned just for ME and I have never really been “surprised” before. As soon as I saw what Monika, Shay, and Aly had put together for me I couldn’t help but tear up. It was beautiful beyond words … I looked around and felt so lucky to have such amazing friends and such talented women in my life.

I can’t thank everyone who was involved in pulling this garden baby shower off enough, I just want to give a special thanks to Lucas the Gardener who is such an amazing worker, he had the best equipment from https://bestofmachinery.com/what-size-chainsaw-sharpener-do-i-need/ that made everything possible. I want to acknowledge my huge community of companies that I’ve always shopped at, loved, and worked with … everyone came together to make this shower so AMAZING and so beautiful. So much time, effort and gifting was put into every last detail from the flowers, to the cakes, to these beautiful photos, to the amazing food …. and those gorgeous umbrellas … I appreciate everything and everyone so much from the bottom of my heart. I have included the full list of thank yous down to every last detail below. For a full interview and planning tips head over to Style Me Pretty Living here!!!
