‘An Afternoon In Italy’ Baby Shower

How sweet is this?

Last Saturday, I attended “An Afternoon in Italy” Baby Shower in celebration of a close friend, pictured above, who is expecting her first child — a little girl! — at the end of December.

The setting was completely charming! My friends who hosted did a stunning job transforming one of their backyards into a beautiful space reminiscent of an Italian trattoria.

The afternoon was complete with Italian music, delectable homemade and catered Italian bites…

 

Bellinis, vino, champagne, and Pelligrino…

{On a side note: How cute is that watermelon-baby buggy?! And how about that homemade chalkboard? I made it out of an Ikea picture frame and a can of chalkboard spray paint :) }

And gifts and games! My favorite game was trying to guess the name of the famous baby mama stuck on your back. It’s a great ice breaker if not everyone knows each other. I FINALLY guessed mine after deducing that my celeb was blonde, around 30, married, not an actress, not a model, not a singer, that she is seen in magazines like Us Weekly and People, and not on reality TV but her dad is — Can you guess who?!

We played two other games throughout the afternoon. In keeping with the Italian theme, the winners each won a bottle of wine. One game was to estimate the number of taffy pieces in a glass jar, and the other was to determine who carried around everything but their kitchen sink/the most useful stuff in their handbag. To determine the winner for the latter, a pen was handed to each guest along with a piece of paper listing 50 items. Anything from a toothbrush to a calculator, rubber band, and safety pin. If you had it in your bag, you got a point. I had a teeny tiny handbag with me that day so I got two points since my smart phone counted as a calculator and a camera. Someone (with a big bag) got 38/50! I didn’t walk away empty-handed, though. All guests received a cute little jar of cocoa butter with the event name and date engraved on the top!

Finally, I just have to share that as gifts were being opened, one of the gals sitting directly next to me whom I had never met before pulled out a Marmont Nursing Cover and started nursing her baby! …Of course I had to say something and she was kind enough to allow me to take photos even after I warned that they might end up here or on our Bebe au Lait Facebook page :)

Top 10 Mommy-Must-Haves

I was at my Sip and See: sip champagne and see the new baby.  Because she is my fourth child, a traditional baby shower complete with games and a gift registry was unnecessary.  In fact, I begged for the invitation to read “No Gifts Please,” but was ignored by my gracious hostesses.   And so I sat in a chair amidst a pile of gifts and began to add to my already vast collection of baby gear.

At this point in my parenting career, I’m ready to purge. I can’t wait until the baby outgrows the infant car seat, so I can FINALLY give it away. I can’t wait until she’s too big for the swing, so it can cease being part of my family room furniture. As I opened my gifts, I thought, “there can’t possibly be anything this baby needs.” How wrong I was.

So, here in reverse order is my top ten:  all new items that I discovered on this, my fourth and final child. How did I ever live without…
