Backyard Baby Shower - Becca Piastrelli

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

I was delighted to throw my dear friend Lauren a backyard baby shower this past weekend, and I thought I'd share a little bit of it with you. It was so much fun to have a reason to join with good girlfriends to get crafty and create a feast for a community of women celebrating a mother-to-be.

We put together a mimosa bar, which I highly recommend for a brunch party. We included lavender and ginger syrup, along with mango and orange juice.

shower drinks

Water made fancy, with a little fresh mint and some lemon slices.

Pink deviled eggs care of my talented friend Monica. The secret is soaking them overnight in beet pickling juice.

Lauren is having a little girl she is naming Isabella (Izzy), so set up a Make-A-Barrette Station.

We finished with cupcakes and frozen cappuccino (recipe from Shutterbean).

There is so much more I'd like to share, but I was having such a good time that I wasn't able to take photos of everything. This last one, however, is my favorite. That is one gorgeous mama to be!
