Everyone who knows me knows that I’ll take any excuse to throw a party! And what better excuse than the imminent arrival of a sweet baby girl. My friend Annie (who, as it turns out, I throw a lot of parties for), is expecting a little one before the end of June…and her twins aren’t quite 18 months old. I can’t think of anyone more deserving of a party in her honor than the soon-to-be-mother-of-three!
Since we live in the cool and misty Pacific Northwest, we are just hitting the high point of strawberry season. We decided to take advantage of the local berry bounty and build our shower around luscious strawberry reds, pinks and vibrant greens, accented with the pale wood of bushel baskets. And since the mom-to-be already has all the baby gear she needs, we took the focus off of presents and games, and spent a casual afternoon, eating, chatting, and celebrating!
