Baby Shower Fun!

I got to be a part of throwing a baby shower for a dear friend Valerie, this past weekend. I was fortunate that my co- party thrower has a beautiful home in which she graciously offered to host the event! Thanks Mina!  The best part about the shower though was, Valerie has ALREADY had the baby!  And baby Jenevieve ( just over 3 weeks old) was a perfect little lady as she slept almost the entire time. I always enjoy putting on parties of any kind and the details of everything from the invitations, to the food and decor all make me giddy with excitement! IMG_3305

Valerie has an amazing friend who offered to make cookies for our party favors! Not only were these cookies truly works of ART they also were delightfully delectable!!!! Such a treat! I brought a cookie home for my girls and they HAD to share (much more than they wanted to) with their mommy! Yummm….

  Here is her website.
( I already have a list of events I am considering buying her cookies for! )


Our colors were black, white and pink! ( One of my favorite color combos.) I hope my sister likes the colors as I am already planning her wedding shower in just those shades.

Even though the bakery did not quite understand ( or agree with) our color scheme, the cake still turned out adorable.


Such a pleasant day honoring a wonderful friend and welcoming her precious angel into the world! Welcome Jenevieve!



  1. I'm so bummed out! I wanted to see all the pics and none of them are working. Almost like the links are broken??? I can't believe that Donna is getting married soon! Congratulations to her...:)

  2. Yeah, I was looking forward to the pictures too but I remembered you said your cameras are busted so I guess you're just giving us what you see on your screen. Get em fixed!


  3. Sorry guys about the pictures. I copied them from a friends email and I think that I did it wrong. :( Hopefully you can see them now. :)

  4. Everything looks FABULOUS! I wouldn't have expected anything different though! :) You totally have to help me with Lily's party...via the internet obviously!
