a bohemian woodland baby shower {part one}

today i am sharing a very special day with you all... my hometown baby shower in ohio, which took place on sunday, september 27. the gathering was hosted by my mom and sister {but as always, my dad and brother also played a big role!} i am very thankful for all of the planning and hard work that was put into the party. most of all, i adored being able to celebrate baby monaco with my family and close friends. i kept getting emotional looking around at all of the people there; people i have known my whole life and don't get to see very often. growing up in a small town was an extraordinary experience and the people are what made it so special. no matter where i have gone in my life {throughout both good times and bad times} these are the people who have always been there for me. it's a simple place- full of so much love. and love is what i felt that entire day. my sister and i created an inspiration board this summer - we both loved the boho/rustic look for little man. we grew to love pinterest/facetime dates with my mom over wedding planning and it was fun to collaborate again. jess helped with the decor, games, favors, and details. {and went to anthropologie two days before- when i was really sick- to look for a dress- so sweet!!} my mom also did so much- the delicious food, florals, linens, renting the coffee shop {loved so much}, decor, beverage bar, and her famous cookies {mimi's cookies were a hit!} - thank you, mom! my dad and brother ran tons of errands and helped to set-up the space that morning. here are some photos... i will be sharing more photos and info {esp. about the invitations and little details} over the next few days/weeks. 
a very special thank you again to all who came to celebrate ♥
 the old doors, vintage buffet table, luggage, baseball glove/bat, and wood rounds were rented from thobe vintage rentals in versailles - they were so amazing to work with!  
the beautiful cakes {which are always so delicious!!} were from rachel's cakes in anna. 
she is also incredible to work with... so wonderful. 
the bare cake with florals and mint green ruffle cake were both stunning.
and books and photos were placed throughout the space, which i loved.

rachel's cakes is the best. 
one of the sweetest people i have ever met
