Blue, Blue, Blue, PINK!


Busy time around my house last Saturday!  Because this is Baby Number Four for Angie, her sisters decided it would be fun to have a PINK shower.  After three precious sons, Angie and Brian are now expected a girl!  To say the least we are really excited about this! Jamie and Emily and I  decided to host a brunch with immediate family members. 



We went to work.  Even though I’m the silk plant lady I LOVE real flowers.  My friend Susan told me to cut away on her beautiful hydrangea bushes.  I have got to plant this variety as they have the most gorgeous blooms! 

Miss Maggie decided it was the perfect bowl of water to take sips from on a late summer morning.


Jamie and Emily arrived in town and went to work on a diaper cake.






We decorated with new baby clothes and some old ones that belonged to my sweet little babies many years ago.



I made pink cupcakes

and used the new Mommy’s (now antique) toys and shower cards I received when she was born

for part of our decor




We set a pretty table

(A few days before the shower date I started gathering dishes and trying out different possibilities to set a very feminine table.  Talking on the phone to Jamie about what I was doing, she said “Oh Mom! I can just see you now!  You are high as a kite!” Just made me giggle!)

You can see the Sampler from Angie’s nursery I used underneath the bowl of hydrangeas.



Finally with all the preparations complete and the guests tucked inside nicely hidden,

We waited for the Mother to be to arrive!






And girl boy was she!



Can you see these precious little dotted shoes on top of the diaper cake??



Instead of games we had a barrette making station set up.

Angie LOVED this!  She now has several little hair doodads for Baby Girl.




Fresh flowers were placed all around.



Each place setting had it’s own little flower vase.

Some held soft green or pink zinnias, some had tiny pink roses and others had cosmos.

The perfect little sweet touch.



The little bird plates were a great find at Goodwill.

The pink plates are called Gay Day by Wood &Sons, made in England.













It was such an enjoyable time.

We are blessed to have a wonderful, close family.











I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing what our day was like.

It is my pleasure to join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for
