wild + free | celebrating baby Cohen

you know me.  and you know I love a good party.
myself and Andrea's two college roomies have been planning this special day for months and I cant believe its actually come and gone! tons of Andrea's closest friends and family gathered at my home to celebrate her baby boy Cohen- and it was such a beautiful day! 
wild + free!



side note: my (rather amazing) dress I bought off the sale rack at loft last week after seeing one of my girlfriends look amazing while wearing it at brunch.  its actually a petite size maxi dress.. but when you're just under 5'7 its like the perfect midi length for the fall weather.  did I mention that it is NOT maternity.  I probably wont be able to wear it here in another month, but its perfect for my 17 week bump!

 the food!  
I catered in the pinwheels +  sausage balls and I also had one of my favorite restaurants make their butternut squash hummus for me to serve to the guests.






 cream cheese + dill + lemon juice + cucumbers sliced thin
 shredded chicken breast + mayo + slivered almonds + grapes + celery
 my amazing hubby DIY'd these wooden disks for another baby shower and it proved to be a good project because I've used them several times since!

 this IS Texas, so there is always sweet tea.
 and the easiest sangria you will ever make.
pomegranate juice + fresh strawberries + pomegranate arils + your favorite red wine (I used Cab) + club soda





 the hostesses + the guest of honor
it was just the perfect day!

I love this -- the wood, arrows, the cake... that food looks amazing too! Makes me a bit sad, we just moved to a new town and won't be having a baby shower this time around it looks like :( Too bad you can't throw baby showers for yourself ha ha!

You always throw the best parties! I'm not sure if you've mentioned before but love your drink display where the sweet tea was. Was that a DIY table y'all made? I always see it in your photos of parties you've thrown and been curious. It's a gorgeous table and seems like would be perfect for parties! I need something similar!!

My baby is named Cohen too :)
You are such a fantastic party planner. I love seeing your posts about parties that you have planned. Gives me so much inspiration.

Where did you find the glass mason jars for the tea and sangria? Love them!

Hi Amber! As always your party looked amazing! I was wondering about the invite and food tags however. Did you print them yourself or had them printed and sent to you?
