I know, I NEVER talk about my love for Operation Shower. Their heartwarming events are NEVER on my blog. And, I’m sure I’ve NEVER even mentioned Operation Shower Play Date. Did my sarcasm shine through? Okay so, last month, I had the honor of volunteering (again!) for an Operation Shower event. This time the baby shower’s theme was Play Date, a super cool vintage retro looking game design that turned out pretty cool,
if I do say so myself.
Operation Shower partnered with Birdies for the Brave®, Carousel Designs and The Mahan Foundation, and with support from Riviera Country Club, Northern Trust, the Northern Trust Open and Summer Infant, we TRANSFORMED the clubhouse at Riviera Country Club. Forty moms-to-be were showered with brunch, gifts and sweets with special guests, actress Beverley Mitchell and Hunter and Kandi Mahan. We have some gorgeous pics here of the venue and decorations – and be sure to read on for news on how to use our printables for your own “Game” themed party!
