I’m still playing catch up on the old blog…hope you don’t mind! This September Jessica and I had the privilege of throwing a baby shower for our sister-in-law Angela. Angela and Elliot (my husband’s youngest brother) were expecting their first child this fall; a baby girl. My mother-in-law Mary, very graciously offered to host the shower in her beautiful backyard. Which was fitting, because almost 2 years earlier, Elliot and Angela were married in that same backyard.
The stunning dahlias came from Kelley Farms, who spoiled me with buckets of amazing peach and cream colored flowers. I arranged them in simple sage and cream pitchers.
Jess had the idea of filling white balloons with gold polka dot glitter and having them floating around the party. I love how playful and sweet they looked.
A few years back Jess and I went to a friend’s baby shower and en lieu of shower games they asked people to fill out a “Wishes for Baby” card. I loved the idea, and so Jessica went about designing this gorgeous card which matched the party invitations. Each one of the guests took a few moments to fill out the card for Angela to enjoy reading later, and someday hopefully her daughter will read them too and know how well she is loved by so many people!
The girls were so excited to be at the party and to wear their matching party dresses (naturally my daughters aren’t wearing any shoes). These girls have been eagerly awaking the arrival of a baby girl cousin FOR EVER. Little miss had celebrity status even before she was born!
Aunt Angela had lots of helpers at present opening time, more than she needed that’s for sure Happily I can now report that sweet little baby girl has arrived, she is healthy and beautiful and so well loved!
