Featured on Kara's Party Ideas!

We are so, so excited that our oldest sister, Michelle is pregnant with her first baby! She is due in July, so we threw her a fun mid-century modern baby shower filled with all of her favorite things.

The shower was featured this week over on Kara's Party Ideas, so head over there to see all of our inspiration and all the photos from the day!

Above is our design board that we created for the shower, full of modern, fresh, colorful and fun elements. We worked together with our mom to come up with the perfect baby shower theme that reflected both our sister's style and that would suit a baby boy on the way!

Our sister's house is full of clean, modern decor, and she has always been inspired by mid-century modern style, so naturally we wanted to mimic this in her shower design. Luckily our mom is very creative and crafty, and she really was the driving force behind all this cuteness. check out the terra cotta cactus planters she painted and planted for each centerpiece!

Every table had a different napkin color, either in turquoise, orange or green that coordinated with the same color terra cotta pots and taper candles. This color blocking gave a nice monochromatic and modern feel to the whole shower. And our modern gold flatware and vintage glassware really added a fun element to the overall decor.

Hudson's First Birthday

A little over a month ago, Natalie's baby boy Hudson Duke turned one!! She wanted to throw him the best birthday party he's ever seen (even if he won't remember it, he can always look back on it in the future!). His favorite thing to do is dance to the hot dog song on Mickey Mouse's Clubhouse, so that's where the theme began. Seen above and below are our design boards for the party!

The retro hot dog theme was based around primary colors, classic picnic foods, and of course, mickey mouse. Below are a few snaps from the party, taken by Cameron ingalls. We couldn't have wished for a better turnout on the decor and food, and such a fun time with our family and friends!

Hudson beelined straight to the food table. Check out those calves!

Below is Hudson's first taste of sugar, starting with this adorable chocolate smash cake (made by his auntie Wiss). We can't tell you if he liked it or not, but it was definitely a cute reaction!

Happy birthday Hudsy! We all love this kid more than words. Can't wait to share more photos soon!

Welcoming a Baby Boy

Exciting news here...Natalie had her very first baby last Sunday! This is both the first baby in our family, and the first boy! We are all so excited. He is healthy and adorable, and momma Natalie is doing great.

Here are some behind the scenes photos from Natalie's maternity shoot, captured by the talented Cameron Ingalls. He shot these a little less than three weeks ago, and we're so happy that he did. We'll reveal all of these incredible photos very, very soon!


Baby Hudson Duke


Below are some photos of the new family and us welcoming him into life! We're so thankful and blessed to have this little guy a part of our family.
