Raquel received her Hebrew name last Friday, and we could not be more pleased with how it went. Even though it was past her bedtime, she was excitedly basking in the attention. After the service, we came home for a party dedicated to the occasion. Of course, the guest of honor was asleep as soon as we got home, but we had a wonderful time celebrating her. I had a lot of fun decorating and baking for our little shindig. One of the best parts of being a parent is getting to make days like this special!
Our table-scape! For some reason I'm obsessed with polka dots at the moment.
The proud Grandmommy!
This is a better view of the decorations.
My brother and his fiance put up what I made/ ordered in a frenzy off the internet.
Paper lanterns can be used all the time...right?
I'm so happy with this cake. It isn't bad looking for homemade.
It was white cake with raspberry filling and salted buttercream icing...so delicious!
I'm now obsessed with food coloring, so I hope B doesn't mind brightly colored cupcakes from now on.
B made fresh homemade popcorn for everyone.
I will never be able to top that gift; he uses that popcorn popper nightly!
The following is a link to the service. The naming starts at 11 minutes in.
