Operation Shower: A Star is Born

Last week, I participated in an amazing event called Operation Shower, which is a unit-wide baby shower for military moms-to-be whose husbands are deployed or in high-stressed situations.  Hosted at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC and supported by the PGA Tour and March of Dimes plus generous contributions from KMart and many more extraordinary companies, Operation Shower "showered" 40 moms with car seats, clothes, blankets, snugglies, boppies, diaper cakes and all the other essential baby gear.  Sound incredible?  It was!

Above are some highlights of the decor.  The theme was "A Star is Born", a Hollywood premier complete with red carpet, concession stand and the most adorable table centerpieces!  Kudos to Leanne Morrisey and Amy Belle Isle for generously creating this remarkable event.  For more information about Operation Shower, please visit OperationShower.org as well as their Facebook page and YouTube video.

The event was also special because I got to meet and work with some ultra-talented party professionals - Sarah from Sheek Shindigs, Lindi from Love the Day, Amy from Stem Parties and Chris from Celebrations at Home; see photo above.

I'd like to thank Midory Takeda-Ragonese of BBJ Linens and Ramona Kelly of Select Event Rentals for supporting this event.  The linens (including the black and white zebra print napkins!), as well as the china, flatware and stemware made the shower look special!
