Ode to a Special Occasion

by Permanent Posies on January 19, 2011

Last weekend was full of baby showers for daughter #3 and blessings abounded.  Oh my goodness!  Thought I would share photos of the first shower.  I don’t have the ones from the second one yet.

So, instead of a game, we did a craft.  We decorated onesies and then, hung them on the wall.  That was so much fun.  And did I say that we had homemade cupcakes and cupcake toppers.

I didn’t know this use at all and only learned about it on blogs. It’s a wonderful idea, I wish I could introduce this here in Belgium.

Oh my gosh. Food, glorious food! Those cupcakes. The fruit skewers. (Okay, I need to eat breakfast!)

What a fantastic shower, Miss Em looks divine. Impressive array of food, drink, and gifts. It bodes well for Little Miss Merritt, I think. She will be so welcomed, well-dressed, and loved!

Hi Susan,

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind words!

I answered your camera question on my blog, but I thought I’d come over and answer it again in case you forget to look on the blog because I do have a recommendation for you.

I use a Nikon D90 with a 18-55mm lens for food (and everything else) and I absolutely love it!

There’s a little more info on my blog about it…



jo January 21, 2011 at 5:38 PM

fitty January 22, 2011 at 1:16 AM

H January 22, 2011 at 5:42 AM

Over here, we don’t do baby showers, so I’ve neither been to one nor hosted one. They look like a really good idea!

Jenny Matlock January 22, 2011 at 2:33 PM

Wow. I haven’t been to a baby shower in such a long time. This was wonderful. The details that someone put together are really outstanding. Everything was absolutely lovely.

Thanks for the smile and the sweet, sweet link to Alphabe-Thursday’s letter “O”.

Outrageously adorable.

AW! A wonderful and great shower for your daughter! It looked like lots of fun! And everything was beautifully decorated.

Blessings & Aloha!
Our daughters hosted a little shower for their sorority sister and they had decorated onsies too :o ) They were in different sizes, so her little one was able to wear them from newborn and sizes to 12 months.
