Abigail Adams Themed Baby Shower | Hosted by Heidi in Honor of Amber

Her home looks like someone breathed life into the pages of a Restoration Hardware catalogue and placed it here in Liberty.  No detail has been overlooked.  In every corner there sits something to surprise or delight you, put together with a class and ease that would humble Martha Stewart herself.  Heidi’s talent for interior design is surpassed perhaps only by her talent for throwing parties, which is surpassed only by her ability to be a fabulous friend.  Amber loves history, and especially the wonderful Abigail Adams.  In honor of this, Heidi created a colonial-flavored baby shower.  Guests spilled into her home bearing gift bags with forests of tissue paper peeking out of the tops, then mingled among flickering candles, bits of lace, and colonial-era candies in glass jars.  There were wooden picnic baskets bearing hand-tied wrapped sandwiches and a delicate fruit medley for lunch.  A string of torn fabric ribbons adorned with Amber’s name hung over the hearth, and we all watched in happy anticipation as the tissue paper piled onto the floor as Amber unearthed thoughtful gift after thoughtful gift.  Heidi’s daughter walked around bearing an antique tray of tiny chocolates.  Babies were passed around, stories swapped, and the late morning passed in happy celebration of Amber and the new life she is about to welcome into her family.

It was an honor to photograph.


Oh wait, you are in love with Heidi’s house too?  That makes about 80 of us.

You’ve caught every moment JUST right, and added quite elegant commentary as well if I do say so. Anyone lucky enough to know Heidi will always walk away in awe. So lovely!
