... for its Founder & Managing Director, ME.  That's right, THE BRIDAL PARTY certainly does more than just weddings.  So when it came time to throw me a spur-of-the-moment baby shower, since my boy/girl twins arrived early back in September, it all came together ... in the most intimate way, focusing on love and family.  The chosen location was Dolce Hotel & Resort in Basking Ridge, New Jersey.  Of course I could have had a "sip-and-see," being that I'd already given birth ... but we opted for a traditional shower, just minus the big belly!  Another job well done.


The theme was "everything times two ... pink & blue" and included lots of whimsical elements (polka dot balloons, carousel horse centerpieces, miniature foods and a decadent ice-cream sundae bar).

Guests loved the "diaper-folded" napkins, tucked menu cards and Hershey kisses (1 pink, 1 blue) that graced each place setting.  Several attendees revealed they didn't want to use their napkins during lunch!

We played all the traditional baby shower games, but also held a onesie decorating contest.  Utilizing glitter paint, stencils, sparkling stones and colored markers, guests created the cutest personalized onesies for the babies.  LOTS of FUN!

Another highlight of the baby shower were the favors ... pre-made chocolate-chip oatmeal cookie mixes (a cue from none other than Bakerella).  These were a certainly a big hit, as there were both "Little Prince" cookie mixes AND "Little Princess" cookie mixes.

It was a fabulous party ... undoubtedly a warm welcome for my twins.
