Pastel Baby Shower

by Sofia   -   in Party planning

I think this might have been amongst the last baby showers I get to arrange. It is so strange how that time in our lives just flew by. It seems like just yesterday we were all expecting to get engaged and waiting to be proposed to. The planning our weddings and honeymoons. Then it was just a hop and a skip for the baby boom & the baby shower season. And then suddenly we are here. Most of our kids are in school or nursery and no one is getting pregnant anymore. How the heck did that happen?

Well as it is the case I was so excited about these baby news and for getting to organise one more baby shower! As always I started my planning with the mother. She loves pastels, aqua, lilac and gold. She loves balloons. And bubbles. I was going to go for a bit more vintage and a little more sophisticated but I sort of went all out cute. We had to have her favourite cake, the Princess cake and in a Madeleine pink.

I´m going to just share a whole bunch of photos…

Le Weekend

by Sofia   -   in Random

I´m pretty certain I just sat on a computer and wrote a Friday post yet here it is again. And what a lovely Friday it is. I promised to pick the girls up from school to go shopping for groceries for the pyjama party. There are things on their menu like burgers, fries and mint chocolate chip milkshakes and I am just going with the flow. I even promised to turn their room in to a giant tent and make them waffles for breakfast. Going all out on the good mama front on this one. I´m basically just saying yes to everything ( except for making slime).

But most of all I´m extremely excited about going to see Giselle in the opera ballet tonight. Watching ballet is one of those things that truly makes my soul shine. Even listening to the orchestra tune their instruments while people get seated is my happy place. Ballet is one of those experiences for me that transforms me. It takes me someplace else. Above and beyond. My plan is to see as many productions this year as possible. And I am truly lucky I have a friend with mutual interest to share the experience with.

I wish you have the loveliest weekend! I have my coffee cup in one hand and will start looking through the baby shower photos now…

Dress coat

by Sofia   -   in Good things for kids  Shopping

Do you buy a so called dress coat separately for Spring? My favourites are the kind that go perfectly with dresses & skirts for celebrations but also to be used around town or when travelling to city holidays with pants as a little dressier coat. Here are some that I was looking at from the Spring collections.



This Arrieta coat form La Coqueta is a favourite. We had it in red for a long time but I really like this pink one with a pretty floral lining. The shape and length makes it a perfect coat for dresses.



Marie Chantal Children has this pretty tweed coat that looks very elegant.



A shorter coat would also look cute with a skirt or a dress but it is a bit more difficult as it has to match the outfits style better. This one is  from Janie & Jack.
