Adorable Beauties & Babies Party

On to Baby member Mel Bosna of lulliloo photography describes her specialty as "Beauties, Bellies & Babies", which gave her the idea to host a sweet, fun little "Beauties and Babies" party. Friends with new babies came together to share a fun day to eat something decadent, dress up, and toast to the new chapter in their lives. This is such an adorable idea, and Mel set such a lovely scene in a pretty palette of gray, pink, and white. She needed to keep costs low, so she got creative and made her own decor, floral arrangements, favors, and food! A little station was set up for the mamas to write a "love note" to their baby on a mini canvas, which made for the perfect keepsake.

Mel shared that she wasn't quite sure how this party with so many little ones at once might go! "Periodically as I was planning the party I would have a moment of panic as I imagined what having ten mamas and ten BABIES simultaneously in my house would be like...however the day was perfection! Mamas sipped on champagne, shared milestone stories and oohed and ahhed over each others babies. The babes took it well in stride--staring, smiling, cooing and occasionally crying. They were troopers!"
