{ tractor baby shower }

last saturday i hosted my good friend lauren’s baby shower at my house. it was an indoor picnic themed party with the main motif being a tractor. i had so much fun planning the party and making all the details. i utilized my print gocco to create the tractor motif on the invitations, favor bags and onesie. here are the highlights. check back later this week for recipes and tutorials.

special thanks to my friend heather, who was so kind to take out time on her busy saturday to snap these photos.
{ the invitations }

{ place settings }
i really wanted everyone seated at a table, so i covered several mighty lights with gingham fabric i bought for $1.50/yard.
the flowers came from the mountain behind my house, which perfectly contributed to the flavor of the party.
i don’t care for shiny plastic party utensils, so found these on world centric. made out of cornstarch, the forks, knives and spoons are 100% biodegradable and looked great on the table.




{ food }
thanks to shannon for the yummy baked beans and lemonade, liz for the delicious fresh fruit and heather for the homemade granola.
menu:
pulled pork sandwiches
fresh fruitgoat chesse, orange and pecan salad
baked beans
mini key lime pie
mini blueberry pie
homemade granola
lemonade


{ beverage & favor table }
this was one of my favorite elements of the party. i covered the table with burlap, hung pennants across the front and placed the basket of granola, beverages, yellow ice cooler and mini milk jug prizes on top.

again, thank you so much to all those who donated time, talents, food and serving dishes. couldn’t have done it without you.
