Sprinkle for Baby Oakley

My sweet nephew, Oakley, must have been overly excited about his baby sprinkle that Aunt Ashley and I were giving him, so he made his surprise entrance into the world 6.5 weeks early - well before the sprinkle. He came home from the hospital just in time to make an appearance at his party!

I reserved the picnic shelter at Meadowmont Park in Chapel Hill, which was just a shelter set in the woods beside a small pond. It was a perfect and quiet setting for our woodland-themed sprinkle.

We served "bundtinis" from Nothing Bundt Cakes in Cary and had iced tea and water (with lemon, mint, and cucumbers) in mason jars for refreshments.

Ashley made the name banner (to hang in the nursery later) and a cute fox corsage among many other awesome decorations. We grabbed pine cones from the woods and put them in mason jars tied with twine for the tables. I'm a sucker for a mason jar. And nature.

And we asked everyone to write a wish for Oakley on paper and roll around a candle. On his future birthdays, he can pull one out and read the message of love. Isn't that special!

It was a beautiful day. And what a glorious occasion to get together; to honor Mr. Oakley and his sweet mama, Beth.
