Coming up Cacti at Prospect House–Featured on 100 Layer Cakelet

In case you haven’t heard, we’re expecting our first little-one here at Highland Avenue very soon! While we’re still busy planning, designing, and working away for our clients, I’ve also been lucky enough to bask in a bit of nesting and baby planning these last few months as we await our new team member’s arrival!

In addition to all the fun nursery designing and tiny-outfit-picking, I was lucky enough to have an absolutely beautiful shower thrown by my wonderful friends Kelley Cannon {of Kelley Cannon Events–if you’re ever planning an event in the DC area, she’s phenomenal) and Sarah Heck {a past bride turned life-long friend}. They were joined by some of my closest industry friends in pulling off one unforgettable afternoon that I won’t soon forget! Every little detail, from the adorable calligraphed cacti placecards by Just Write Studios, to the stunningly clean and modern place settings by Birch & Brass, and oodles of stunning flowers and succulents by Remi & Gold… be still my heart! Oh, and the cake–ugh the cake–if I could eat it EVERY single day I would. I’ve craved blueberries and lemons my entire pregnancy and Feathers & Frosting knocked it out of the park with their adorable cacti design and crazy delicious blueberry & lemon cake!! Confession – I ate the remnants directly from the fridge the following morning for breakfast.

I’m a sucker for white walls and clean lines, so it was only fitting this whole shebang took place at the one and only Prospect House, and every last detail was perfectly captured {because they’re talented beyond words} by our dear friends Sophie & Jordan at Sophie Epton Photography. A big thank you as well to Bee Lavish for the beautiful furniture, Marquee Event Group for the rentals, Tiny Pies for the adorable mini-pies, and Beacon Lane for the stunning invite!

We were lucky enough to have 100 Layer Cakelet feature all the adorable images and I’m thrilled to share them with you! I’m humbled and grateful beyond words for everyone’s effort to make this day so special,¬†and for all our friends and family who flew in from near and far to celebrate it with us.

Only a few more weeks–I hope–until our little guy’s arrival, and I can’t wait to introduce you to him soon!
