Sara's Satellite Shower

Posted by Picasa

My sister-in-law and her husband Rusty came to visit this weekend from New York. She is 7 months pregnant and just a few weeks ago I was thinking how I wished I could throw her a baby shower. With all of the shared friends the four of us share, it would be a great opportunity to all get together. (For further info on our interesting relationship - see previous post).
Unfortunately, all those shared friends live all over the country. So.... I came up with the idea of a Surprise Satellite Shower. (I think I am the first to coin this phrase, at least according to Google). Basically we had a shower at my house and friends sent gifts. Thank you so much to all those friends who participated. We just wish you could have been here in person.
Lydia and I had so much fun making and decorating cupcakes. I got creative and made a "Binky Garland" (also my brain child) which turned into a nice decorative necklace for Sara. (If you notice a wardrobe change, Sara decided she needed a new outfit and a little makeup if this shower was to involve photographs.)

She looks so happy! Was she surprised? You did such a great job pulling everything together - such a creative idea! BTW - those cupcakes look like a photograph from a magazine.

P.S. Lydia in the chef's hat is just about the cutest thing I've ever seen!

What a cute idea!! I LOVE Lydia in the chef's hat. Where did you find a little person's chef hat? Kate would think she had died and gone to Heaven over something like that! You're so creative!!!!
