As much as I love a sit down, sip tee kind of baby shower, that just wouldn’t fit when an ultra laid back friend was having her first kiddo. A group of us got together to celebrate her bun in the oven, and wanted to make it all about her. That meant outdoors, relaxed and healthy. All the hostesses came with all sorts of fun ideas and we finally landed on a morning yoga session and yogurt parfait bar.
We rented bars, tables, linens and dishware – it’s so great to end a party by handing back a pile of dirty dishes – and kept the food simple but delicious with lots of yummy yogurt toppings, like fruits, multiple granolas and nuts. I loved the Irish coffee mugs for the parfaits.
I focused on the (limited) decorations, which basically just meant a few signs and some big, cheap Ikea fabric for people to picnic on after the yoga session. It was such a sweet way to start a Saturday and welcome a little one into the world.
