Mermaid Sprinkle

We celebrated our fellow Foxes, Brooke, Hap and Gray, on the impending arrival of their baby girl. Given our surroundings and proximity to the sea, we chose a mermaid theme. Below, a fraction of the fun.

I picked up some decorative storage baskets and signs from HomeGoods and flipped them over to use as risers. We also gave birth to little assistants and put them to work!

…and nectarine and buratta crostini for everyone to snack on while the kids were still awake. We waited for them to go to bed for an adults only dinner of chicken skewers, shrimp salad lettuce wraps, fish tacos, corn and seasonal greens salads, all made by our talented friend Amanda.

If you haven’t tried this cake yet (or any of Milk Bar’s creations), you must. It’s seriously so good.

We gifted the babe-to-be a Harmony blabla doll and this sign– that we’ll write her name and birthdate on once she arrives- for her nursery, among other things.

The pups had to be included in the party too! Behold the Bark Booth.

Poor Brinkley ate her weight in treats. I can identify with a girl who doesn’t know restraint!
