Sweetheart Adoption Shower for Ava
I have been so lucky to find a community of wonderful adoptive famillies. We have been blessed to journey with them through their adoptions and we celebrate their joy. There is a group of five of us adoptive mommies that have become good buddies and we all have a common hobby- party planning! We have so much fun planning together, we have even nicknamed ourselves the "PomPom Committee"! Four of us planned this shower for Libby, who adopted Ava through domestic adoption.
Inspiration: We wanted to incorporate the nursery as much as possible for a personal touch so we chose aqua, pinks, and white. Libby loves tea rooms and so we decided to have tea foods. Ava means "like a bird" or "song bird" so we incorporated little touches of birds to the shower. We also used doilies to make it extra girly!
