Welcoming Prince Sparkle – A Moroccan Baby Shower

February 25th, 2013 in baby showers ideas

I know its been a while since I’ve been around and this blog has been really slow.  However, I’m spending much needed and deserved time away from social media and enjoying this last pregnancy of mine.  We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first son and the countdown is ON.  I made a decision to work less and enjoy more of my family because this is the LAST time! Baby Sparkle is due to make his appearance mid-March and we can hardly wait.

A couple of weeks ago my friends and family (Team Sparkle) threw me the most beautiful shower ever, I may be biased but it was just gorgeous.  I have held out on sharing photos from the shower because I just wanted to keep it close and just enjoy the moment but from the urging of others, I have decided to share a few photos.  There is a little history about the theme of the shower.  My sister and mom have known for a while that I have wanted to style an Indian or Moroccan Baby or Bridal Shower for about 3 years and when it came to my shower, they thought it would be perfect to do it for me!  I was amazed at how beautiful it was. I’m so use to creating beautiful events for my clients and for something to be so special and sweet for me, was truly touching. I didn’t have anything to do with the styling of this event, not one thing….. so that made it even more special!

My favorite photographer Marirosa even stopped by for a couple hours to capture the moment, I’m so grateful that she did, Photography by Marirosa.

I can not thank my friends and family enough for this beautiful baby shower!  Baby Maxwell is already so loved and I’m so grateful to have each of you in my life….;)
