Hello, Dear Friends, I hope you have
enjoyed this last weekend of summer,
or autumn, if you live 'down under'.
We celebrated my youngest son Dustin's birthday
with a 'Seahawk's Sunday' football party at his home
this weekend, and I will share that with you soon.
Today I would like to share the 'Rock-A-Bye'
baby shower held for my daughter, Heather, last weekend.
Come inside and we'll take a peek
before the guests arrive!
The entry table.....
The invitation and
envelopes to address for thank-you cards.
Heather and Eric are decorating their
baby boy's nursery in a musical theme.
Eric is an accomplished musician
and their's is a musical home.
One of the baby shower games -
'Guess Heather's Age' in each photo :)
She was my first child.
Where does the time go?
The shower was hosted by Daughter-in-law, Erica
in her lovely home.
The chair for the guest of honor.
Pillows I made for the nursery.
I also made this musical mobile
for our new little 'Rock Star'. <3
The nursery colors are green and blue
with French gray furniture.
I sewed this mobile in felt, strung
from a painted embroidery hoop.
I saw the idea on Pinterest
and made the patterns myself.
We hung it from my vintage bird cage stand
just for the shower.
Sister, Jennie styled the 'Rock Star' table
with baby tee's and diaper cake.
Of course - Rock Candy!
Later we set out the cake
lovingly made by Heather's
Father to be, Eric's guitar and case on the gift table.
Jennie made the banner.
'45' records with the baby's name, displayed on the mantel.
Waiting for the guests to arrive.......
Some yummy nibbles.
Chocolate drizzled popcorn
and veggie cups with buttermilk dressing.
I made the banner in the nursery colors.
Sis-in-law, Jen made these delicious skewers -
cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh basil
drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
Sister, Jennie rushing around.
This girl knows how to visualize and organize a party!
Erica's newly remodeled kitchen is so lovely.
She and my son, Gabe just celebrated their 5th anniversary.
They completely remodeled their dated 80's style home
and gave us our first grandchild during that time.
We have had some lovely holidays and celebrations here.
She shares a laugh while setting out the main
course, delicious chicken fettuccine.
The lovely dining area.
The guest of honor arrives.....
looking at baby photos.
Baby Gavin is due in early November.
Beautiful rays of late afternoon light.
It was a lovely, sunny day.
Cake-maker Cheri also made the baby name blocks
in guitar shapes (on the mantel).
Loving friends and family :)
It was a wonderful day of love and laughter,
gathered together to celebrate the beginning of
a precious new life.
Thank you for sharing this special time
with us, Dear Friends!
