You guys!! I’m super excited to be able to share some info about an amazing event that is coming up. I’m still sort of in a dreamlike state about it. I’ve been wanting to help out at an Operation Shower (you know, the group that puts on AMAZING baby showers for military families around the US?) and learned a few months ago that I would be able to when they came to San Diego. I was ready to do whatever they needed. If they asked me to unwrap 5,000 straws I’d do it in a heartbeat. If Amy wanted me to walk around holding her hair in to a make shift ponytail because she forgot a hair band I totally would have done it. But then I was asked to design a table!!!! The coolest part? A bunch of other bloggers (like, legit bloggers: Hostess with the Mostess, The TomKat Studio, Sweets Indeed, Thoughtfully Simple, A Blissful Nest… the list goes on and on!) were also asked to design tables! For this Operation Shower each table will be designed by a different party gal but all of them will be based on the amazing printables designed by Abigail of Paper and Cake shown above. I can’t wait to see how they all come out!!
May I blow your mind a little bit more? This time around, Pottery Barn Kids is heavily involved in the shower (something tells me that is going to end well for the mom’s being pampered at the shower). The fine, kind folks at Pottery Barn Kids have just introduced some new products, including, but not limited to, a safari theme. They are very generously letting all of us use some pieces in each tablescape! How rad is that??!
You definitely need to go check out the new stuff online at Pottery Barn Kids and then you should make sure you are following the Pinterest board they set up for all of those involved in Operation Shower to pin to. It has been a fun way to keep tabs on what the other designers are looking at and will be exciting to see if their tables turn out anything like what they have pinned.
Do not expect much blogging from me this week. I am in full party prep for my son’s bday next weekend. Then in the middle of the week I will be watching 5 children for 3 days with overnights and school drop offs, pick ups, meals, baths, the works. I’m a little anxious about it but I’m sure I’ll be fine. Gulp, right??
I wish all of you a fantastic new year!
