It is Summer 2008, and everybody I know is pregnant.
But not that much.
We convened at The Peninsula Beverly Hills today to shower mothers-to-be Nanette and California Girl with love and good cheer.
Secluded from the masses in a private room, our hosts spread their personal touch all around, and we felt comfortable being as jolly as we wanted. No worries of being shushed!
California Girl and Nanette arrive!
We wished our guests of honor well in photobooks.
Strawberries and cream.
Plain and currant scones.
Devonshire cream and lemon curd.
Various petite pastries.
I chose English Breakfast tea. Other options were chamomile and a citrus blend.
Trisha, tater, and I won the first game in which we identified everybody's baby pictures.
And then there was this game.
California Girl and Nanette opened our group gifts.
Gotta love group gifts.
Gotta love baby shower twofers.
