Philanthropy | Operation Shower • Ponte Verda Florida

As we inch our way closer to the weekend...
my excitement is building.

I'll be participating in a special event hosted by Operation Shower ...
a non-profit organization that provides delightful baby showers for military families.
The showers are hosted to help ease the burden of deployment as well as to celebrate and extend our appreciation for
the many sacrifices made by these families.

Operation Shower has teamed with Birdies for the Brave®...
and the PGA Tour to host a baby shower for 41 military moms-to-be.

I'll be traveling to Ponte Verdra Beach, Florida to help create an extraordinary day for these expectant moms...
who'll be leading the PGA Tour's 2012 The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass.

I'm honored to be collaborating with some talented and creative women who'll be working together to
make this an unFOREgettable experience for women who's husbands are
deployed members of the U.S. Navy and Army National Guard.

The event will feature high-quality products from sponsors and donors like
Petunia Pickle Bottom. These items will be presented to the moms-to-be
in Operation Shower's signature "Shower-In-A-Box". 

I've been given the honor to help create the dessert table
with a sweet friend and fellow designer, Kori from Paper & Pigtails.

Looking forward to hanging out with some fabulous friends...
as well as the opportunity to make some new ones...
and more....

My roomie is Kori and I'm "giddy-high school-girl-excited" *wink*
What a fun girl's weekend...
I'm SO looking forward to it.

Oh...
and I'm insanely jealous of the Petunia Pickle Bottom products the moms will be receiving.
LOVE!!!

I so wish I lived in FL! I cannot wait to see what Maria of Love and Sugar Kisses creates for the CAKE! She is fabulous and you will LOVE her! She's one of my party BFFs!

What an awesome thing to do! This is right in my own backyard practically and I had no idea! I would have loved to have been able to help or contribute. I am just getting started in my party/dessert buffet business here in St Augustine, Florida so I am not in the loop yet. If you ever need any help with anything like this in the area or the surrounding areas, I would love to help!
