My dear friend Elaine threw a lovely mini baby shower while my mom, sister and family friends the Tuculets were here visiting NY. It was a sweet day filled with fun treats, a few good friends and a whole lot of laughs and love.
We started the morning with some pampering at Pink Lemon Park nail salon, the most adorable nail studio I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. And we happened to be the only customers that morning, so we had the place ENTIRELY to ourselves! Elaine brought sparkling lemonade and cute mini cupcakes and the five of us girls had a wonderful time gabbing while the moms popped over to Central Park for a walk.
Afterwards we walked to Elaine's building, where she had reserved the garden for our little party. Brunch included a delightful assortment of treats, including lots of vegan options for Miss Sophia and insanely delicious molasses mini-scones made by my sweet friend Kim. They were SO GOOD, I think I ate half a dozen of them.
We played silly games and made funny bibs. It was an overwhelming outpouring of love. Baby C received so many beautiful gifts, from books to swaddle suits, homemade hats (with animal ears!) to the tiniest little jean jacket! Lucky mama got pregnancy cookies (heck yes) and a gorgeous baby bag that I love love love.
Necessary baby gear: German toasting bib...
and a teeny pair of (wide) New Balance sneakers to match daddy!
Thank you all for a wonderful day and the incredibly generous gifts. I'm so lucky to have you ladies in my life.
