March Madness

March has been a {super} busy event planning month for me! It started with my precious baby girl's 1st birthday which we did in a You Are My Sunshine theme. The very next weekend was a joint party for my son's 2nd birthday and my niece's 3rd birthday in a fabulous vintage circus theme. Two weeks later I got to help a friend throw her daughter's 1st birthday in an adorable pinwheel theme (pictures on that coming soon!). And just this week I rounded out the month with a "sprinkle" for one of my best friend's in a simple, rustic, gender-neutral theme. 

They are welcoming their second child in just a couple weeks, so not only did we want to celebrate the upcoming baby in a special way, but we wanted a last girls' night before life gets extra-crazy for them for a few months! With that in mind, we planned a low-key evening with lots of yummies and space for chatting. The menu included cucumber hummus cups with sesame seeds, mozzarella cheese bons, triple fudge brownie bites and blueberry chocolate pudding shots. 

The theme was based around some sweet paper we found at Archiver's. I mimicked one of the prints of an old clothesline in a much larger version for the backdrop. I framed some of the other prints and made pinwheels to put in old glass jars for table decor. 

In addition to the main table, we had a fondue bar with semi-sweet chocolate fondue and pretzel rods, marshmallows, vanilla wafers and strawberries for dipping. Yum!! It was the perfect "sit-around-the-table-and-chat" menu! The only structured activity we did was a "jar of well-wishes" for mama and baby. 

It was a fun, relaxing evening and now we are ready to welcome baby (AKA Mikmash as he/she's currently called) into the world!
