It's My Party and this time it really was my party...it was my baby shower. My partner, Colleen, who is also the inspiration for our company, out did herself with this one. She really did an amazing job. I felt so loved and cherished.
The theme for my baby's room was nautical so Colleen stuck to the blueprint of my theme.
Colleen used white tablecloths and rattan runners for the table linens. The placemats were simple green paper that she purchsed at the paper store. Azar planters were filled with white and green hydrangeas. Colleen made little paper sailboats from scrapbooking materials and wrote each guests name on the masts, these little sailboats served as place cards. The napkins were rolled and covered with light blue paper and a grosgrain napkin ring and than another sail that was much bigger was placed into each napkin. The sails that were placed in the napkins were for the guests to write me a note...any kind of note that I could read during those late night feedings (I must confess that each time I read them now they bring a smile to my face). After each girl wrote me a note on the sails they placed them in a sand box which is where I still keep them in my nursery.
The cake was to die for. It came from Sweet Lady Jane's in Los Angeles...it was my favorite, Red Velvet Cake. Yum!!! I am embarrassed to say that I took the left-over cake home and ate it for the rest of the week. I still think about it and it is all I can do not to go and get another one just for myself.
These are some of the guests who attended that day! Thanks, girls. It was such a fun day. Did I mention that my baby came 6 weeks early?! Yikes! Needless to say I was able to enjoy a peach bellini although I was a bit unprepared for his arrival we made due. Thank goodness for the baby shower.
