Over the weekend, we celebrated the arrival of our little bundle of joy with a Meet Madeline Tea Party that my beautiful sisters threw for us. Originally, it was supposed to be a traditional baby shower, but since Madeline insisted on coming early, the baby shower never happened. So instead, the party was opened to the men folk as well, and it became an opportunity for everyone to see the baby.
The party was so beautiful. There were tea pots with flower arrangements on each table, and tiny little teacups with pink polka dots and stripes on them for guests to take. They even made Madeline teabags that featured her face with the words, "A Teariffic Arrival."
Everyone at the party had an opportunity to decorate a onesie for Madeline. I now have a year's supply of adorable onesies with cute messages from family members and friends on them.
And, of course, we played pass the baby.
I was so blown away by the party and am so thankful for our wonderful family and friends. We are very lucky people.
