Welcome Sweet Alice

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.

So to make a happy / sad day the very best, we set a pretty table, ordered some delicious food and enjoyed the day all together.frame sq vase plate glass

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.
