A Mountain Adventure Baby Shower

When my cousin announced her pregnancy with her first child, the planner in me was immediately thrilled at the thought of planning her baby shower! (I mean, who doesn't love a good excuse to throw a party?!) With her and her husband's love of the outdoors, I knew right away that "mountain adventure" would be the perfect theme. Graze Restaurant in Little Silver, NJ set the stage for the rustic look we had in mind, while also providing us with an array of farm to table options for our brunch. With their wood floors, farm tables, and beautiful plants lining the walls of the restaurant, we already had the perfect foundation for the look we wanted to achieve. Together with her sister, Marie, we planned and styled a shower filled with lots of creative elements to welcome their new little adventurer.
