A Pink, Gilded Baby Sprinkling

Since we had so much fun putting together a baby shower for Totes in the Tiffany Blue theme, we were so excited to switch it up to all pink and celebrate the arrival of baby Melina (aka Apple).  Victoria's Secret Pink and Gold were our theme colors this time around and it was only fitting that we use the same venue, Mamma Melina Ristorante, again as our little girl is being named after Mamma Melina herself (her nonna/grandmother).  Since we already have more than enough baby gear and supplies at home, I opted for no presents. However, my girlfriends were having none of that and wanted the excuse to buy adorable girly baby clothes.  The party host, Jacqueline, custom built a baby clothing rack, painted in gold, that we displayed on the table with the collection of tiny pieces.  She also put together a headband-making station and I love how all they all turned out! One of my favorite keepsakes is the gilded mirror where each of my girlfriends added a custom note to Melina.   I had been feeling so exhausted and crummy this pregnancy but this party really lifted my spirits and gave me a reason to get all dolled up to celebrate my little girl!
