Weekend Recap: Hey Hey Emma Ray!

This weekend I helped host another Couples' Baby Shower for another dear friend of mine. I know what you're thinking; I'm so cool, I have so many friends, can you be mine too!!??  Actually, due to a horrific case of verbal diarrhea and sarcasm, I don't have that many friends; but, pregnancy has been a domino affect among my group. If still interested, we can be friends though! ;-)  Anyways, this time around it was a shower for a little girl; Emma Ray. In our group of friends we have A LOT of baby boys, so us hostesses were beyond excited to make things PINK! 

As you peruse the photos I have to give a shout out to my friend Olivia who did almost all of the decorations (Including creating the hashtag Hey Hey Emma Ray). I keep telling her she needs to open a party planning/decorating business.  She is incredibly creative and talented...don't you think!?

The shower took place at Blue Gill restaurant in Gainesville, Florida.  If you live near there or ever visit the area I would highly recommend this place.  Their food, service, and accommodations were perfect for our event; they even helped some of the girls decorate. Blue Gill's banquet room is called "The Barn" so the decoration committee decided on a Chic Southern Country theme; pink tulle, doilies, mason jars, pink roses, etc...  I've collaged the photos of everything but have blown up some specific ones that I thought would be perfect for "pinning" purposes.
