Oh buoy! Baby Burkholder is on his way


Lauren Burkholder is in the final stretch of her pregnancy. Naturally, it was time for a shower—a couple’s shower. Sally Wood Biondo, Susan Wood Jenkins, and Jennifer Smith hosted the party for Lauren and Scott Burkholder at the Smith’s Marietta home. The couple is expecting the arrival of Baby Boy Burkholder in January.

Parents-to-be Scott and Lauren Burholder with (L-R) Stephanie Burkholder Fisher (Scott's sister who is married to Martin Fisher, not pictured) with son, Jackson, and Susan and Doug Jenkins (Scott's mother and stepfather). Scott grew up in Marietta and graduated from Walton High School.

The shower took on a nautical theme. Guests were greeted by a paddle with bow on the outside doors.

Yachting flags were draped from the ceiling with vintage life preservers, striped cloths, and boats adorning the tables.


A trio of salads—lobster, chicken, and egg—were served along with quiche, yogurt with granola topping, and pretty peti fours topped with blue icing.

The champagne flowed. A sea-riously good time was had by all.
