The other week a friend threw a lovely get together for us to help welcome our baby girl. Hubby was also invited and he was delighted to be included in his very first baby shower experience, pastel pink and all.
The hostess made an adorable three-tiered diaper cake, and centerpieces in light pink stock flowers and white tulips.
Lunch was at Restaurant Suntory in the Royal Hawaiian Center, one of my faves for authentic Japanese food (one of the rare places that actually makes miso soup broth from scratch using bonito flakes and kelp). We dined on a delicious menu of tempura, misoyaki butterfish and California roll. For dessert, she brought green tea roll cakes from Le Palme D’or.
After lunch we enjoyed traditional baby shower games and opened presents. We received so much adorable baby stuff in pink and lace and frills that hubby and I joked that it would be hilarious if the baby was born and he turned out to be a boy! (Apparently, mistakes like this happen sometimes).
We were so overwhelmed by the love and support in the room, and feel so lucky that our daughter is already so blessed to have so many people welcoming her into the world.
