Confession: I love hosting baby showers. I love the planning, the excitement and the pampering of the expectant mother-to-be, which typically happens to be a dear friend. There always seems to be debate surrounding whether or not to shower or sprinkle a mother when she is pregnant with her second, third, fourth….child.
When I was pregnant with my second, I really did not want a shower and two of my closest friends insisted. I, of course caved. I am so glad I did. The afternoon was one I will never forget.
Fast forward to present. One of my closest girlfriends is pregnant with her third child, which happens to be a girl. She has two beautiful boys and is thrilled to be adding a little pink to the family dynamic. She of course did not want a shower or anything fancy, but every princess needs a tea party and that is exactly what we gave her! I promised her it wouldn’t be big in numbers, but it was a grand affair. The afternoon was filled with hats, tea, games, finger-sandwiches and a whole lotta love. It was low in stress and high in fun. Hats were strongly encouraged and all the guests kindly obliged. It was such a fun, fancy affair and left me longing for another afternoon filled with girlfriends, tea and reasons to celebrate. Here are a few pictures of our Sunday afternoon!
