Celebrating Sweet Pea

I was really looking forward to throwing today's sweet pea shower as a chance to talk, laugh, and celebrate babies! It was like I was just think differently about all of it with the anticipation of our own little babe, as well as the guest of honor's. Everything seemed to go smoothly and I was pleased with the final event, so I thought I would share a few snapshots of the details.

Anne Hope was a wonderful hostess. She loves girly parties and was really thrilled to be part of this one. Here she is keeping score for us during our "Friendly Feud: Baby Addition" game. So...if you were playing along what would you guess to be the #1 baby girl name or baby boy name of all time??? If you make a guess I will post the answer!
We ate brunchy foods at our sweet pea table. I was really excited to get my favorite flowers from the farmer's market as table decoration. The kids helped me create mini pacifiers out of lifesavers and jelly beans as table favors.
The baby girl got many thoughtful gifts. Each of her aunts made beautiful themed quilts.


  1. Very cute !
    My guess will be John and Anne

  2. It was a wonderful, wonderful morning! Thank you for everything you did! :)

  3. It looks like you had a fun time. You'll have to show me how to make the party favors. I love all of the sweet pea decorations. Here are my guesses:

    Top Girl Name: Elizabeth

    Top Boy Name: Michael

  4. Very good guesses -thanks for playing:) Michael and Elizabeth were in the top 10 list of all time names. I think that Michael was #6, Elizabeth #4. However, the number 1 names were James & Mary.


Thanks for taking a moment to comment. I love to hear from you!
