A dear friend of my mine, Rashmi, is expecting her second boy. Her story is so fascinating because she found out she was expecting when she was 24 weeks along and found out it was a boy at the same time. This weekend of BBQing and family gatherings was also the weekend of her baby celebration.
I like organizing celebrations to be simple but elegant, using material I already have with a touch of something new. The something new was definitely our topiary favors inspired and made by my friend Christine. (She found the idea here.) Aren’t they adorable?
We borrowed the centerpiece (the painted tree branches and paper flowers), used some of my favorite fabric to wrap prizes and add color to the table. There was lime water and light refreshments, a few games, elephant cupcakes made by a friend Elizabeth, homemade bath salts for prizes (a tutorial on those later this week) and lots of laughter and stories told by a room full of ladies.
What a special celebration with a handful of people I already knew and many new friends made.
What was memorable from your weekend?
