Outdoor garden baby shower

It's been a scramble the last few weeks, but we were able to get the cork floors done, painting completed (thanks to Dad's help!) and [most] unpacking done so that we could host my sister's Baby Shower this past weekend. Handmade bunting

We've had record-breaking heat lately, so in anticipation of hot weather, we attached one of these handy fabric canopies from Ikea to help provide a little shade in the atrium. John attached it with some rope and accompanying hooks from the roof. Sebastian (excitedly) helped his Dad:

And here's the beautiful Mama-to-be in the Atrium. The canopy actually acts as the perfect reflector for taking photos:

Next project (for Dad) is our reclaimed wood outdoor dining table, but in a pinch, two folding dining tables did the trick, with some table decor on top. Thanks to our talented friend Brooke for her beautiful floral design.
