‘Sip ‘n See’


We love any excuse to throw a party and what better way to show off a bundle of joy than with a Sip and See? In case, you don’t know what a ‘Sip ‘n See’ is it’s basically where you invite people over to sip (drink) and see (cuddle) the baby. Very casual!

Whenever we throw a party we start by choosing a theme and since it was the first weekend in October, we decided to do a “Fall” theme. We wanted to keep it very simple, incorporate decorations we already owned, and make it feel very welcoming.

We gifted sweet baby William this sweet pillow from The Pin Cushion. If y’all haven’t seen her sweet little name pillows before you MUST go check out her shop on etsy. We told her colors, and a theme and ta-da a perfect car pillow for the nursery!

There was so much yummy food for lunch that we kept the desserts simple and sweet. Cookies from Whole Foods. The signature drinks were mimosas mixed with Fall berries – perfect cocktail that just happen to match our party’s color palette.

All in all, it was fun to have everyone over to celebrate the sweet arrival of William Reese Jones!

Fall Uniform

Hey y’all!

We are so ready for some cooler weather and no humidity! In the mean time, a plaid flannel is one of our favorite looks because it can be so versatile. As mom’s we have to keep it comfortable – a pair of booties during the day, and for happy hour with your girlfriends dress it up with some heels.

As a southern girl, Kelly loves EVERYTHING monogrammed. When we say everything we mean everything; towels, bedding, AB’s whole wardrobe and her clutch! Just remember y’all “Southern women are extremely good at getting what they want.” — Virginia Williams.

Fall Foliage in Maine

On a whim we decided to take a trip to the east coast to experience the season change. Here in Texas we don’t get to experience Fall, so everything exceeded my expectations. My camera was on overload! I took over 400 pictures over the duration of 5 days. Pictures don’t even do it justice – it was truly breathtaking.

The whole trip was filled with the most charming places, to die for eats, and the Fall weather was amazing.  I wish I could share them all with you!  This was one of my favorites, the Portland Maine Lighthouse.

Olive + Black

Happy Wednesday! It’s almost the weekend!

We are loving the olive + black combo for Fall. Oversize t-shirts and booties just make us happy. Anthropologie has always had the best t-shirts and this one is no exception. What is y’alls favorite combo for Fall?

“Up up and Away”

It doesn’t seem possible, but our sweet baby girl Brooklyn has officially turned O N E! I can hardly remember what life was like before her. Time truly flies when you’re having fun!
With her love for balloons I thought what better theme to run with than Hot Air Balloons! I prefer the convince of email invitations so we used Paperless Post for the invites. We hosted a brunch style party at 11 am, right after her first nap so she was a happy camper. We served donut holes, fruit, Chick-fil-a nuggets (who doesn’t love those), assorted quiche (Costco), coffee cakes (Costco), fruit pouches for the little ones, and of course custom cookies from Tudor House Cookies. Also the creative and talented Heaven & Honey did a little photo shoot before the party with the hot air balloon theme which turned out amazing!

I ordered most of the decoration on Amazon.com:
– tissue pom pom
tassel garland
3 foot balloons
hot air balloon mesh net
Who doesn’t like everything being delivered to there door step.

Lastly, was the goodie bags. I had a hard time deciding what to include but Target never seems to disappoint and I hit there dollar section and found a box of jumbo sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and glow n the dark sticks. What great finds and a ones top shop.

Until the next baby comes along …. I hope you get some ideas from “Brunch with Brooklyn”

xoxo
