Bow ties, BBQ and Brews

I absolutely love my friends and my friends and I love to shower our expectant friends with lots of love and gifts.  Kelly's shower was no different this past weekend in Birmingham, Alabama.  She is having a boy this October and his name is John "Jack" Monroe Murphree. His father is a "seer" sucker for bow ties and his mommy enjoys her shopping trips to Kate Spade, so the hostesses and I thought...why not have a preppy bow tie couples shower for the mom and dad to be.

I created 4 different bow ties and used them for different decorations.  The color theme was navy, emerald green, teal and aqua.  Jessica, a graphic designer and one of the hostesses, took my watercolor bow ties and created an adorable invitation.  We also used the watercolors to make cupcake toppers and added a special detail to the straws.
