My sister-in-law Katie welcomed a sweet baby boy this spring. When she told us she was pregnant with sweet little Corr, I couldn’t wait to help throw a baby shower for them! Since Katie’s cute group of girlfriends were already planning an adorable Peter Rabbit themed shower, we decided to keep this one to a small group of ladies for brunch, and it was perfect!
We held the shower at the adorable Mary’s at Falls Cottage right in downtown Greenville. This was also the location for Katie’s bridesmaids luncheon the day before her wedding, so it really came full circle! Mary’s really is the perfect location for a brunch, luncheon, or shower. They were so easy to work with, and really handled it all! We were given an list of several different menu options, and we had such a hard time deciding which to pick because they all sounded so yummy!
Although Mary’s is right in the middle of downtown Greenville, it really feels like you are in a quaint garden while you’re there. When you have such a picturesque setting, you really don’t need a ton of decor, and really makes things simple. We were fortunate to have the porch to ourselves, and we had the most perfect weather to enjoy it!
I was going to say that Sursy Paper was the icing on the cake, but our Sursy supplies totally made the event! Jenna, one of my best buddies and owner of Sursy Paper dreamed up the most beautiful invitation for Katie’s shower. I asked her for a color-neutral, classic baby shower invite, and she practically read my mind! It was just perfect, and really set the theme for the shower.
As a little “hostess gift” to Katie and Corr, we laid out a Bible, embossed with Corr’s name, for guests to sign. The ladies at the shower each highlighted their favorite Bible verse and signed their name next to it. Our hope is that this will be a special treasure for Corr to always keep. To coordinate with the invitation, Sursy paper made a sign with instructions for signing.
In keeping with the theme, our final Sursy touch was personalized menus for each guest. It was a fun twist on place cards, and really made the table look so sweet. We found some precious pictures of Katie and Seth as babies to use around for decor, and they were able to repurpose them in Corr’s nursery!
As a gift to Katie, we had Corr’s heart beat from his first ultrasound made into a painting by Charleston-based artist, Lauren Neville. Lauren does an incredible job of turning heartbeat sonograms into beautiful abstract paintings. Lauren customizes each painting with your preference of colors, and for Corr’s painting we chose neutrals – gold, grey, and white to go along with his nursery. I was so excited with how it turned out!
