Meet and Greet: Baby edition

Ayla's meet and greet party

Instead of a traditional baby shower, how about a little gathering after the munchkin has arrived? Here are some photos from Ayla’s meet and greet party where the sleeping beauty (that was her status for most of the day) was introduced to some close family and friends.

Be innovative with your center pieces and incorporate a little DIY to give it a special touch. Here we have tissue paper pom-poms (here are some from martha http://www.marthastewart.com/265163/pom-poms-and-luminarias-how-to) and twine balls, sat on top of a board which acted as a runner, that we simply covered with some chic wrapping paper left over from the holidays. Flanked by whatever flowers we could find in season, and voila!

Chai latte cupcakes, dips and salads rounded out the nibbles and bites for the day. Adults were not forgotten and were given some plain white onesies with fabric markers to design a little something for Ayla. It was a great way to bring out everyones inner artist as well as become a keepsake from this special day!
