We all love welcoming a new baby…thoughts of holding a sweet little one, kissing soft cheeks…falling in love all over again with God’s finest creation…
This week, my staff and I hosted a work-baby shower for ‘soon to be stay-at-home-mommy’ Jen and her little girl, Alice.
I started planning the shower weeks ahead, choosing colors of chocolate and pink with a touch of lace. and hoping our hydrangeas would be in bloom.
Late the night before, I cut several tones of pink hydrangeas from our garden , trimmed up some beautiful white tulips and baby’s breath and began to plan out my arrangements.
I found the perfect fabric to make the napkins:
chocolate brown with pink polka dots!
My favorite pink damask table runner fit perfectly
down the long conference room table.
Crisp white plates, clear goblet glasses, and beautiful silverware
with a touch of gold gave the table setting a professional look.
Delicate flat white lace wrapped around each vase
was secured with double sided tape and a touch of fabric glue.
Three different sizes of vases break up the long conference room table.
It was still a bit dark when I arrived at work that morning
and began to set the table;
Pretty, isn’t it, as the sun began to stream in, highlighting the flowers.
I always love giving a picture frame to the ‘mother-to-be’ and this particular time, I wanted to include some words to express both parts of the celebration:
‘Welcome Sweet Alice’ and ‘Goodbye Jennifer’.
I was delighted to find the perfect wisdom from our favorite little bear,
Winnie the Pooh.
Our lunch was catered by My Country Catering and was absolutely perfect!
The delicious cookies made us forget for just a little while, this was Jen’s last day…
Thanks for sharing our day with us; We’ll miss you Jen!
