Sprinkled With Love

My dear friend has a two-year old son and has recently added TWIN girls to the family. Before the girls arrived at the beginning of the New Year, we wanted to show our love and help add a little more pink to their lives, so we threw her a Sprinkle.

When you have your first baby you are often showered with gifts for  your new little bundle of joy, but when you have your second and your third, you may not need an entire shower full of baby items, you may just need a sprinkle of items. In this case, we felt she just had to have some adorable pink baby clothes, and an equally adorable pink party at which we could sprinkle her and the babies with love.

Handmade invitations featured an umbrella with hearts that I cut on my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine. The text inside read:
We're having a party for the mommy to be
Genny Robbins is having numbers two and number three
No need for a shower
They have cribs and toys
Let's sprinkle them with pink 
For the new bundles of joys

We had a couple of very simple games. There was a "guess how many buttons are in the jar" game, and a "celebrity baby name" game where guests had to match the name of the celebrity to the name of her baby.

As you can imagine, the often eccentric celebrity baby names added some good laughs to the party. 

For favors we made little pink boxes stamped with baby feet, flowers, and "oh baby", and we filled them with the most deliciously simple to make cookies. 

Sandwich a smear of peanut butter between two Ritz crackers. Then dip the sandwich into white melting chocolates. The ingredients don't sound like much, but these are some addicting treats!

We added simple pink and gray decorations, including pink flowers and pink handmade tissue paper flower puffs. In the midst of my chaos of party hosting I did not take pictures of the food, but we served brunch fare, including baked french toast, mini quiches, bagels and cream cheese, fruit salad, and, of course, cupcakes. 

The party was a pretty, pink success. Momma-to-be was very grateful for her Sprinkle and her carload of cute, pink items. Even cuter though, are her two new sweet baby girls, Charlotte and Annie. Congratulations Genny!
