Happy Birthday Alex
Last year I had the pleasure of planning an intimate baby shower in Dumfries, VA for the Hopkins family. The mother of one six year old girl, mommie to be expressed that she had NO desire to see even a touch of "baby pink" during this shower. Allowing for creative expression, instead we incorporated a blend of fuscia and orange in a really fun "whine & cheez" theme. Instead of a traditional guestbook, upon arrival, guests were photgraphed for input into a beautiful adesso album. Decor items included wine bottles and fuschia vases, silk and satin fabrics. The menu included delicous Italian favorites and we served fruit and hor d'eouvres in Wine Canters and glasses. The highlight, a diaper cake display (see above) from My Little Baby Kakes that was literally pretty enough to eat! The event was absolutely beautiful and just as Mommie to be requested.
Yesterday I got an email from the Family thanking me again and reminding me that a year had passed and Alex is now, healthy, happy and 1 year old. Boy how time flies!!
