March 10, 2012 - Elmarie's baby shower!
The spread. Chocolate covered strawberries by Aneta, Caprese Hors d'oeuvres by Glenys, Sandwiches by Sheila, Quiches by my Mom, Shona, Salad by Shona, Barbeque Chicken Skewers by me, Lemon Merange Pie and Milktart by Elmarie, and Ombre Layer Cake by Glenys. Delicious!
All the guests. We requested that everyone wear the colors of the party. Thanks, friends, for humoring us.
The drink table. We had a champagne Mimosa bar with Mango or Peach puree and optional strawberry and pineapple to add in. Of course, sparkling cider was available for the pregnant people! The bottles held iced coffee that Hillary made.
Baby Scattegories game.
This pillow is Elmarie's gift from me. Its part of a new series, coming to BrightJuly. Stay tuned for that!
A very special gift from two of Elmarie's close friends in South Africa.
Another surprise we planned: video messages from family and friends in South Africa.
She loved it, girls! Thank you so much for taking the time to record them.
My precious "sisters." I love them both so much!
It was a beautiful day. A huge thanks goes out to all the guests who made it what it was. You are all wonderful and so appreciated.
Now, to rest up and gather more ideas for the next baby. Who's next?
