Bay-Bee Sip and See

Friday, February 3, 2012

In December my dear friend Laine and her husband Jared adopted an adorable baby girl named Pierson.  They should have named her Rapunzel because this chick has a head full of hair!  She is exactly six weeks younger than Isla and I just know they will be best friends.  (We have two other friends with boys so the boyfriend department is covered as well.)

Jessie and I, along with Laine's sister Erin, threw her a Sip and See since it was happening after Pierson had come home.  We went with a bee theme because the baby room is gray and yellow and we thought we could encorporate bees well with those colors.  In Jessie and Becca fashion we went a bit overboard on decorations.  You are shocked, I can see it on your face.  I also waited until the week of the shower to start crafting which meant being up late most of the week.  Pair this with two sick kids and myself getting sick and you have one tired lady.  (You think one day I will learn not to procrastinate??)

We were excited to put together a dessert table and we tried to encorporate yellow or honey into most of the food.  We had honey baked ham sandwiches with honey mustard, honey bbq chicken tenders, and then fruit, cheese and veggies.  For dessert we had cupcakes, cookies, lemon and devil's food whoopie pies, chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate dipped marshmallows, gumballs and honeycomb rice crispy treats.

We had water with lemon, lemonade mimosas and lemonade with mason jars to drink out of. I love those straws also!!

Pierson got all kids of cool stuff but these hostesses did not have the mostess because her list of gifts was misplaced. Yep, shower fail.

We had a lot of fun and it was so great to celebrate Pierson and what a blessing she is to their family.  I am so glad that I got to be a part of Laine's journey to mommyhood.
