Welcome Baby Frankie

I'm home with a pukey Cedric today so have a little unexpected blogging time in between laundry and Konmari'ing our dressers.
It doesn't get much more glamorous than that folks.

Our dear friends added a fourth to their family in June.
And she is a doll.
We had a situation with a proud Auntie here from England for a short time period so ended up throwing together this party in 8 short days.
Thank goodness the kids were in yoga camp.
 In an hour at Fabricland I acquired most of the decorations.
These fabric covered balloons hung with fishing line added some whimsy to our plum tree.
 Never underestimate the power of ripped fabric strips and twine.
I also gave my Gram's tea cart a real workout as the drink station.
We kept it simple with some pink lemonade punch and lemon water.
I can take credit for about 10% of the food.
My co-host Grandma Shirley was amazing at putting this spread together.
I did, however, bake that cake for the sole purpose of using that Hello World cake topper from Confetti & Sparkle Shop.
 Ribbon and fabric served as drink identifiers but also ended up looking very sweet.

 I have no pictures of Mama and Mom but found this one of Prince Charlie in his shower throne.
 We had a second food table with quick grab kids food which gave me an excuse to hang these lace curtains that I purged from the cabin.
 You always need bike parking right?
Instead of a guest book we had everyone write a message on a strip of fabric (I had ironed a small piece of fusible interfacing on each for this purpose).  
Afterwards we tied them all on a stick and the resulting art piece is now displayed over Frankie's crib.
The guest of honour was the sweetest little thing through the whole party.
And has been ever since.
