April's Sprinkle

We had the very best time sprinkling our dear friend April!  As most of you know, she is the very sweetest and we wanted to make her baby sprinkle special for her and right up her alley!

We thought about having it at one of our homes but then decided it would be best to have it at a nearby restaurant that serves brunch!

We made a reservation at Dogwood Southern Table for noon on a Sunday...noon because in North Carolina, they don't serve alcohol until then on Sundays.  And mimosas for the guests (specifically the honeysuckle mimosa) and a specialty mocktail for the guest of honor were a must!

We picked up cupcakes from Publix (because they're truly the best), flowers from Trader Joes and April's friend Lindsay brought the cutest favors for everyone!

We had little wish cards for everyone to fill out for the baby.  They said "I hope you love...." and the guest filled in the blank for each wish.  At the end we tied a ribbon through the hole punch and slipped it in one of the gift bags for April to take home with her. 

Everyone just ordered whatever they wanted off the menu!  Easy!

April is radiant isn't she?!




We can't wait until this sweet baby (boy or girl?!!) joins our crowd of babies and friends!!!

What a beautiful shower you girls threw for her! I love the little sign with the flower seed favors; that is so cute and original. You all are such good friends to give her such a nice event!

Such a nice shower! I have been seeing that "I wish" activity all over the blog world lately and wish I had seen it for Erin's shower last year!
