With autumn officially upon us, we spent the weekend dusting off our cosy knits, trusty coats and drawers full of tights, all in preparation for bonfire nights and frosty mornings. All in all, we were feeling pretty smug with our new season organization. That is, until we clocked snaps of Blake Lively’s weekend, which involved an epic baby shower.
Published on her blog, Preserve, Blake’s pics were taken by her brother and document what is essentially an autumnal dream. Proudly showing off her bump in a ditzy midi skirt and floral blouse, Mrs. Ryan Reynolds was joined by her friends to swap gifts and eat cake, all in the name of impending motherhood. There were teeny tiny, tie-dyed baby clothes, skipping children, paper lanterns and, of course, an impeccably co-ordinated table complete with autumn leaves and apples galore.
We’re not sure about you, but this puts any kind of party we’ve ever attempted to throw to shame. Blake was (literally) glowing, as her gal pals presented her with an enormous cake. The lady herself said: ‘With a new baby on the way there is so much to do! But before experiencing the joy of 3am screams, seemingly impossibly amounts of poop and having a favourite shirt covered in reflux…there are presents to open, onesies to dye, there is cake to serve, advice to be shared and all around celebration to be had.’
While we’re pretty envious of Blake’s party planning skills, luckily she has included many of the decs and accessories on her Preserve shop. We can even buy her outfit!
