When my dear friend Sarah announced that she was expecting baby number three, I hoped with all of my heart she would have a girl. Seeing as we both had two boys, I was aching to see some pink and girlyness around - not to mention, FINALLY getting to throw a baby girl shower.
So, when the sonogram revealed the precious pink news, I immediately got to planning to the girly shower of the year.
Baby's breath, pearls and twine gave everything both soft and rustic touches.
We had a baby brunch so the menu planning was easy and delicious.
And to boot, they were even matching!
I had everyone write their favorite candy/treat on one piece of paper and their first pet's name on another. We combined them together and we came up with the perfect choice: Baby Ruth Hadiya (prounounced Hah-de-uh). It was a silly game, though we did end up referring to her as Baby Ruth for the remainder of the party!
The sweet girly gifts abounded - which is the best part!
Precious sleepers and dresses and tutus and ruffly things - for a mama like Sarah with two boys, all of the frilly clothes are quite a change!
It was a sweet shower for the sweetest friend.
By this time next month, we should all get to meet sweet Baby Ruth!
