Over the years my clients have become my best friends. Today they showered Lil Miss Zoe Lynn Hall with an amazing "Sent From Heaven" themed party because (they say) having a little girl is my moms gift to me. (I lost my mom when I was 8yrs old to a sudden brain aneurysm). I couldn't be more grateful for the people God has placed in my life.
I wanted to share the pics we got from the special event plus give some tips on DIY.
Above: My two sweet hosts Aimee & Rekha
What a beautiful cake! Aimee made the "Z, O, E" out of coffee filters and cardboard. I saved them and have added them to Zoe's nursery. (I'll do a blog post on her nursery once it's complete).
The girls making Zoe handmade bows. This is was so special! I love having bows made by my girls.
Here are a couple bows that were made.
FYI- Aimee ordered the Bow-Making Kit from Etsy. That's an easy and safe way to making bows. That way you have everything you need.
My friend Michelle's beautiful little girl. She's only 1 month old, so tiny! I'm so glad that Michelle was able to get her out for the first time and have some girl-time. What a beautiful little angel. She slept the whole time. I never wanted to put her down.
DIY Tip: The girls were asking about my hair. That's not a headband; that is literally my OWN hair. I'm a huge fan of boho and halo headbands are my currently my obsession.
Homemade Sugar Scrub: Plus make the topper with paper that you have. I had a butterfly cut out that I placed on top. I used THIS RECIPE to make the sugar scrub and added red food coloring to make it pink. $3/ea (estimate)
This is the best way to encourage your hosts to indulge in a spa night for themselves. They deserve it!
Ah, my heart is filled with so much gladness. Not sure what I did to deserve such great friends, but I'm so grateful nonetheless.
One thing that I am learning as I'm getting older and having suffered the hurt of failed friendships is that it's not about having a certain number of friends, it's about having a number of friends you can be certain of that matters most.
I haven't always been great at letting my loved know just how valuable they are to me, but it's something I am working really hard to getting better at.
