“b” party!

As we saw our posts creep towards the 100s, we knew we needed to so something special to celebrate this blog. The 100th post happened to fall on the perfect weekend when there was so much to celebrate including the Brennans To Be (Brad and Jenna) and an inevitable Husky beatdown vs. our Ducks. Taylor had the brilliant idea to make the theme “b.” As luck would have it, many of our favorite things start with a b. Here’s a look!

decor

 

 

Our décor featured all things “b” including

  • Balloons
  • A “buttload” of pumpkins (a term Taylor coined well before we conceptualized this party)
  • Blossoms (duh)
  • Oregon “banner”
  • Beautiful votives (ok, that one’s a stretch)
