And now, to begin the “Stuff Sarah Does” portion of my blog:
Mary’s Twinkle, Twinkle Baby Sprinkle
In honor of my good friend’s second daughter, due this Spring, we threw a shindig at my house. It’s the first time I’ve ever organized and hosted a shower or gathering that wasn’t entirely informal. I made things with my bare hands. All in all, I’m calling it a wild success.
We had your standard games and baby-shower activities, plus one that I invented to match the theme: “Name That Constellation”.
That bottle that you see there is one of those “patience glitter bottles” that have become so popular on Pinterest. God bless my fellow Pinners, by the way. Without their inspiration, I think this party would have been a little droll.
One of our activities for the adults and the kiddies alike: affirmation flags for Mary to have with her during her labor and delivery.
Hand-made nursery art and favors, care of yours truly.
I’m proud of what I was able to do for my friend, and grateful for all the help I had along the way to make her day special. I don’t think I’ll become a professional party planner any time soon, but on this occasion, it was rather fulfilling.
