A Beautiful Baby Shower

On Saturday we drove down to Charlottesville, Virgina for my new cousin in law Christie’s baby shower. Little baby Avery is coming this Fall and we are all so excited!

The shower was held at the same bed and breakfast where Christie had her wedding and I fell in love with The Highmeadows Vinyard Inn the moment I pulled up. The house is periwinkle blue with lime green shutters and bright pink doors. Peacocks (and chickens) actually roam in the garden and patio areas while just to the right there is a beautiful vineyard landscape with rows of vines.

Of course in true “That’s so Michelle” fashion, I forgot my camera (doh!) but I did my best with my phone. I couldn’t help myself.  Every little detail was Pinterest worthy. I must have taken 200 photos with my tired, old Android.

Here is the happy mom to be (she was glowing) and her mom, grandma and sister. Such lovely ladies and Avery is going to be so loved!

Every room in the house felt like it was out of Southern Living. Such detail to each and every space. Every corner, every hallway and every table and chair.

I am in love with (and want to marry) this chair. Anyone know where can I buy this chair?

These gorgeous and sparkling cupcakes below came from a family friend who picked them up in Roanoke.

While eating our cupcakes someone mentioned another cupcake shop in Charlottesville that sells Lemon Drop cupcakes that supposedly induce labor! How in the world?!

Maybe it’s the lemon zest?

Remember my Peach and Raspberry Sangria from yesterday? Well guess where I got the idea? Yup. I have to admit though, I think their recipe was better. I will have to get more details next time I see them.

The baked brie cheese with caramelized pecans served with sugar-cinnamon pita points still has my mouth watering and was my favorite from the tasty summer menu.  But we all know how I feel about cheese!

I have a ton of other photos that I posted on Instagram (check them out and follow me here).

Congrats to Christie and family, we can’t wait to meet the babe :)

    Michelle, see a picture of a chair you can have for FREE. Annie Drury doesn’t want it anymore since she downsized. I put a picture of it on her facebook page.
