The Garden Party of the Century

Yesterday was the sweetest day, a garden tea party to die for. I'm just saying that Martha Stewart has nothing on my friends.

 I'm not a firm believer that you need a baby shower for every baby, sometimes I think it's a little too much, so when my girlfriends said they wanted to plan a shower for Penelope I was a little hesitant, I just didn't want them to feel obligated to fuss over me. But once they convinced me it was a good idea I was tickled to oblige... I mean it's always nice to open presents and spend time with girlfriends.

Whitney, Maribeth, Angela and Ashley went all out once the theme of a tea party was decided on. I walked outside to see the most picturesque tea party that could ever be imagined and I should have cried, everything was so beautiful! I didn't take nearly enough pictures but here's a glimpse of it all.

We played a super cute game where everybody brought a hair bow for Penelope and I had to guess who it was from, then after my guesses (which were all wrong except for one), gals gave words of wisdom or shared sweet thoughts about me and baby P. It was so thoughtful and unlike most tacky baby shower games. So put that one in your vault ladies.

Penelope got so many cute clothes, reflective of my style which was my favorite part. I was always worried that I would get a bunch of tacky pink outfits if I had a girl, but seriously every little outfit was perfect and lovely. Among them were 5, yes 5 super cute swimsuits... we must be supposed to go to the beach every day this summer!

It was the best afternoon! My sweet friend Kristin gets the prize for coming from Columbia with her nine day old baby!
I loved getting to see my friends and celebrate the little lady inside, I guess every baby does need a baby shower.
