It’s been a busy couple of months around here and once again my blog writing has fallen by the wayside. I wanted to take some time to share some photos from a couple of events from the past few months as my party posts seem to be the most popular posts on this blog. In February, I hosted a baby shower for a friend at my home and in March I took over hosting my Aunt’s table at a charity high tea event. Both were a lot of fun to host and I enjoyed the opportunity to get creative and spend time with good people. Here are the highlights:
Fairy Wishes and Butterfly Kisses
I hosted a baby shower for a friend I used to work with in a new age store who loved fairies and butterflies and was planning to decorate her daughter’s room with both. I went with the theme “fairy wishes and Butterfly kisses” and I love the way it turned out.
The shower was later in the afternoon so I just did appetizer type food and dessert. I didn’t theme all the food selections like I did at my Dr Seuss shower but I did include fairy “kisses”.
For games we played “Don’t say baby”, a mad libs game and Babies against Parenthood. I had also set out my deck of Magical Messages from the Fairies by Doreen Virture so guests could pull a card and see what “wish” the Fairies had for them. I also had them fill out cards with their wishes for baby. It was so much fun. I only wish I had taken more photos, especially of the decorations I had made and the thank you gifts i made as well. I’ll take more pictures at the next shower I am hosting (and Ps, it’s going to be Harry Potter themed).
The first Saturday in March ushered in the return of the anual Lura Turner Homes high tea charity event. This is probably my favorite event. I have been attending with my aunt since I was in high school and this year due to medical reasons I hosted her table for her. I did use all of her own China and table settings. I think our table turned out wonderful.
That’s all I have to share for now! I will take more pictures next time. Hoping to get on a regular blog schedule over this summer as well.
