Here's the story. My friend Alisha has a daughter the same age as my Charlotte Rose. Alisha has a flair for entertaining and just needed an excuse to host a luncheon - a get-together with other moms and our babies. For her daughter Violet's birthday, Alisha threw a violet-themed luncheon. My daughter's middle name is Rose, and since roses are blooming and Charlotte just celebrated her first birthday, it was an easy fit for Alisha to throw a (Charlotte) Rose-themed luncheon.
Alisha hosts a blog mixing equal parts domestic beauty, whimsy, and sass. This is my play-along to her post about the luncheon. Let the story begin!
Hi, I'm Charlotte Rose.
We like doing everything together, like reading magazines. Some days we even dress alike, totally unplanned!
And shoes! Which shoes!?
White...definitely white. But the sandals or the flats?
As if the dress and shoes weren't enough decisions, babies also have to wear bibs. I tried on bib after bib, hoping to find the perfect look. It needed to be pink for the rose-themed party, with just the right amount of class for a proper luncheon.
(The bibs were my contribution to the luncheon and doubled as party favors. I'll post the DIY info and pattern soon.)
wear wigs anyway.

When the big day arrived, I donned a petal pink frock with embroidered roses and set off for Violet's house
This is the point in the story where you hop over to Violet's mom's blog to see pictures of her amazing rose-filled tablescape and photos of the adorable, well-dressed babies.
Violet and the other guests made me feel welcome and at ease as I took my place at the table. Evidently too at ease because I put my feet up on my plate! Whoops - sorry, Violet. (Again, if you haven't already, pop over to my friend's blog to see more pics.)
Lest you think the story ends here, be assured I remembered one last thing.
I came straight home and scribbled a heartfelt thank you note.
Thank you for hosting such a lovely party, Violet!
