We celebrated our fellow Foxes, Brooke, Hap and Gray, on the impending arrival of their baby girl. Given our surroundings and proximity to the sea, we chose a mermaid theme. Below, a fraction of the fun.
I love a good prep and planning sesh.
I picked up some decorative storage baskets and signs from HomeGoods and flipped them over to use as risers. We also gave birth to little assistants and put them to work!
We served watermelon “pizza”…
…and nectarine and buratta crostini for everyone to snack on while the kids were still awake. We waited for them to go to bed for an adults only dinner of chicken skewers, shrimp salad lettuce wraps, fish tacos, corn and seasonal greens salads, all made by our talented friend Amanda.
If you haven’t tried this cake yet (or any of Milk Bar’s creations), you must. It’s seriously so good.
And local, seasonal ale for the family who calls the other borough home.
Cupcakes with toppers for the kiddos, macaroons for the adults.
The pups had to be included in the party too! Behold the Bark Booth.
Poor Brinkley ate her weight in treats. I can identify with a girl who doesn’t know restraint!
