This past week I hosted my first Baby playdate at my apartment. It was an adorable lunch and play time party for mommies and babies (mostly friends from Reese’s Yoga class) that ranged from one month to five months old.
Since this was a day-time summer event, I was excited to use my C.Wonder flower vases and white ceramic serving platters on my buffet table, my C. Wonder shell pillows as accents on my couch, and simple summer flowers like daisies that required no arranging.
For lunch I whipped up some healthy summer dishes – to start, a cheese plate of Brie, Simple & Crisps and grapes, then for the main buffet, red and brown tomatoes with mozzarella basil and vinegar, a summer salad of arugula, craisins, raisins, and sliced almonds, and a large turkey baguette sandwich. I made cute place cards to sit beside each of my dishes so guests would know exactly what everything was without consulting with me (since I clearly had my hands full with baby!)

I also added a cute pampering aspect to the party (because all moms deserve to be pampered!) by bringing in some of my favorite organic baby-safe beauty products (got to love anything mommy and baby friendly!) The babies “sniff” tested the different JASON natural body lotions and mommies fought over the different Avalon Organics Body Washes, then we lathered up the babies in the all-natural Alba Botanica baby-friendly sunscreen before heading out the door to the park.
For dessert, guests devoured the cutest bite size rice crispie treats by Treathouse with fresh strawberries.
The day ended with fun time on our SkipHop Playmatt. Little Benjamin even got lucky holding Reese’s hand!
What an adorable baby party!
