How perfect for a spring baby shower... awaiting a baby named Violet! I was happy to host a party in honor of the coming bundle of joy this past weekend! It was a beautiful, sunny day, and so fun to have a houseful of ladies celebrating babies and spring and little purple flowers! Preparing for this lovely day has taken up a bit of my creative time lately. Here are a few pictures before the event:
And a few of Willow dressed in my 30 year old lavender dress that my mother made for me when I was just a little one! I thought it was the perfect way to dress her for the occasion- and welcome her future playmate!
Everything Violets! (actually pansies and silks... but still in the same family of flowers!)

The day was a hit, and I think Erin (Vi's mommy) enjoyed a day full of friends and gifts. Here is a big THANKS to my lil' sis, the amazing Aunt Lala! Saving the day with all of her help as we juggled restless baby, baking, and decorating! Thank Thank Thank you, Laura!!!
