Around the Clock Shower

7 Aug

A few Saturdays ago, Ashley Witt, Sarah and I hosted a shower for Ashley Combs. We decided to do an Around the Clock theme which made planning really fun.

The invitation that Ashley designed  was inspired by Amanda Jane Jones’ Around the Clock Invite. You can download it here for free. We decided to put it all on one invite and write in everyone’s time.invitationI love the vintage seed packet look and I was really happy to hear that they were made into stamps. I had my eye on them for a while and was so excited to get to use them on something cutesy. We put the invites in vellum envelopes so the color came through on the back. Some many of my favorite things all tied into one.stamps

For the menu, we planned around the times of the day. We found lots of new recipes and each one was a hit! Check out the links for the recipes.

So for breakfast we had fruit and delish Blueberry Lemon Scones.

For lunch we made Cucumber and Lemon Dill Sandwiches and Hot Ham Sandwiches.

Dinner was so tasty. We made Mini Fish Tacos and Peach Caprese Salad Skewers with a Balsamic Reduction.

For dessert, we had Strawberry Cupcakes. We also had the normal shower beverages like coffee and tea, but we also wanted to do something out of the box. I failed to take a photo of the Grapefruit Lemonade, but it was really beautiful and pretty good.

Some of my favorite touches were the Bloom Letter and Tassel.  It was a fun way to bring in some color.

I love celebrating the beginning of a new season with sweet friends! We are excited about your wedding Ash!
instaRyan and I ran to a wedding right after the shower and then to a friend’s art show. It was a fun weekend of celebration.
