Baby Shower Blessings

Can you believe baby Tudor is due almost any day now? We are so excited and I'm sure you are too. We had a baby shower at the Rookery for Amy and Winslow a few weeks ago, and boy (or girl?!) was it fun! Bright pinks and greens decorated the Rookery, with crepe paper flower streamers hung from the ceiling, balloons tied up, colorful tablecloths and beautiful bright flowers everywhere (thanks, Jenna!).

Our dear friend Kate (those of you on the September tours met Kate working the marionettes in Marjorie's theatre) made this lovely flower crown for the guests of honor! And our other dear friend, Kathleen (whom you can meet if you come to the Hildene or Newfane craft shows coming right up) knit this beautiful little sweater set. I think Amy is going to use this as the "bringing home baby" outfit. You can see some jars of baby food in the foreground...yes, we made Amy and Winslow taste-test some baby foods. They didn't get a single one right, but I think they decided it's going to be natural foods for baby instead of unidentifiable jarred food.

Overall we had a splendid time preparing for the new baby and are just so excited to meet our newest office staff member. We'll have another little one calling out to you when you place your phone orders!

On a chilly Vermont (almost-Fall) Monday,
