It finally feels like spring in Wisconsin, especially after seeing and smelling the sweet florals from this past weekend! Haley and Christian had quite the wedding weekend, and we're so happy to share a few details from their rehearsal dinner!
We worked with the always-amazing House of Flowers team to create a design that perfectly complimented their upcoming wedding day. The bright and airy upstairs ballroom at The Waters was set with luxurious warm grey linens, dozens of candles, and showstopping compote bowl centerpieces.
Guests were invited to find their seats with handwritten place cards. Once seated, they shared family-style bowls of the most delectable salmon, New York strip with herb chimichurri, and impressive sides of fingerling potatoes, vegetables, and artisan breads from Rye Restaurant.
They wined and dined until it was time to head back down to the main floor where additional wedding guests arrived to celebrate the happy couple with desserts and evening appetizers.
Many congratulations to you, Haley and Christian! It was a pleasure to meet you and we wish you nothing but the best!

In early June, my sisters threw a baby shower in my honor. For once I got to take a backseat and watch as someone else did the planning....
But of course, my sisters, knowing my love for planning EVERY. SINGLE. DETAIL. allowed me to have quite a bit of input when it came to our baby shower for Baby Witts, as we affectionately named him or her.
My oldest sister offered to host the shower in her backyard among her lilac bushes (my favorite!) and apple trees. We used a few of the rentals that Witt & Co. offers as well as vases from Lauren at The Flower Mill, and tables and napkins from Oshkosh Event Rental.
No family celebration would be complete without some A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. food. I could eat breakfast any time of the day, especially while I was pregnant...so we had to have a brunch! We had the perfect selection -- Made-from-scratch chocolate fudge Belgian waffles, toppings galore, quiche, pastries and donuts, an extra special raspberry trifle, and of course mimosas and fruity MOM-osas.
As my husband pulled up, I was nearly in tears, to noone's surprise. (I blame the hormones!)
It was such a blessing to celebrate the anticipated arrival of our first baby with some of our closest friends and family! I am ever-grateful to my mom, sisters, sister-in-law, niece, and even my brother (who helped make some of the food) for truly putting on the best shower ever. It was so much better than I imagined.
I might focus on weddings when it comes to planning at Witt & Co., but it was so much fun designing a shower for a very special little man in my life. We're so happy to finally have James in our life!
Thanks to everyone involved for sharing in our very special day!
