When Avery was about 7 weeks along our doctor said that it looked like she was holding a balloon celebrating during an ultrasound. So from that moment I had my heart set on having a hot air balloon themed party. The shower was held at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale under their outside pavilion. It was a stunning location right on the ocean. We had gorgeous weather and I had the best time!
Love this chalkboard illustration welcoming guests to the shower! It was done by an amazing company called Unearthed Vintage. They also provided a lot of the decor for the shower including the farmhouse tables and chairs!
Place settings and favors
Personalized Avery pens for the games
Table numbers, flowers in mason jars and a floral table runner
Each seat had a paper fan to decorate the back!
The place cards were done by an amazing Etsy seller and were hung on vintage shutters!
Prayer bookmarks with Avery's verse, 1 Samuel 1:27
Pashminas to keep guests warm!
Beautiful sitting area with vintage luggage and pashminas
Custom art with Avery's bible verse...it's now hanging in her nursery!
A beautiful dresser held all of the candy and dessert!
These key lime cupcakes from Candy's Cakepops are the best!

Opening presents - my sister helping me! I was wearing a Diane Von Furstenburg wrap dress and Kira sandals from JCrew.
Kris surprised me at the shower with flowers and a new engagement ring! He had a halo setting added to my ring for our Angel Avery! It was the best moment!
