Real Baby Shower: Lovely Little Lambs

Monday, September 13, 2010

Today's shower that Elise Hanna of Elise Hanna Photography sent us is the perfect way to warm up to your Monday morning. The lighting in Elise's photos and the color pallet of the shower are oh-so soft on the senses, and the theme is just so stinkin' sweet. Little lambs?! Our hearts can't take it. It's just too precious. But, we may also be biased because when Elizabeth's daughter tries to sing "Mary had a little lamb", our hearts just melt. We love that the party favor was a CD of children's lullabies -- especially since there were children at this lovely afternoon soirée. And, don't you think it's such a cute idea to have your guests draw pictures for the baby's nursery? To hear more sweet anecdotes from this event, make sure you check out the note that Elise sent us -- it's at the end of the post!











From Elise Hanna... {The sweetest showers don't require umbrellas} I was recently asked to photograph the baby shower to honor half of the Exquisite Details Wedding & Event Design Duo, Trisha Todd. It was (as expected) the loveliest afternoon shower. The gathering in honor of Trisha and baby Landon was sweetened with cupcakes from DD's Cupcakes, flowers by Dalsimer Atlas and a little lamb cake from Sweet Tiers. The ladies sipped white sangria and lemonade from mason jars and enjoyed delicate bites created by a friend of the mama-to-be. Ribbons were cut and measured against Trish's belly (and the gently kicking feet of baby Landon) and labelless mini jars of baby food were displayed for guessing contents by sight on. The guests contributed to handmade artwork for baby Landon’s nursery and departed each with a copy of the soothing sounds of a most lovingly created CD of lullabies.

Trisha's comments to sum up the day: "The day was so special to me because of the friends and family that surrounded me in this joyous time in my life"
