"Sweet Little Angel" Baby Shower

Wow! I think this is the longest I've gone between posts in months. I just had way too much to do. But now I'm back and I have more to share! First off, let me share a few simple things with you.

Last year one of our friends was about to have her second daughter. Her life was in turmoil as she was stressed, her husband was being undergoing cancer treatment and recovering from bone marrow transplant. I can't imagine how exhausted she was. They both felt so blessed to have a sweet little angel coming down to bring them some joy in their moment of trial. They named her Angela.

We threw a small "sprinkling" for her. It was simple, but it was still fun.

The invitation:

I added simple, soft wings to a pink background. Really easy to do.

The food and decorations:

Lunch: Oriental Chicken Salad with Rolls and punch (Such an easy salad, but delicious!)
Desert: Raspberry Lemon Trifle (Recipe to come)
Decorations: Martha Stewart's Tissue Paper Pom Pom's

The gift:

Luckily I had the time to make her a Maggie Bag. The funny part is there were two other girls there with theirs! My husband has a hard time when we're all together because the bags all blur in his mind (he recognizes all the fabrics) and he forgets which one is actually mine! This one is made from Sandi Henderson's gorgeous fabric!
