Pom Pom Baby Sprinkle

I am so excited to finally share all of the details of the whimsical baby sprinkle we threw for my friend and beautiful second-time mama Yael a few weeks ago. My talented friend and DIY blogger Marisa of The Neon Tea Party and I got to collaborate on this special event together and it turned out better than I could have even imagined! We ate sprinkle-covered treats, shared our wishes for the baby, and made a one-of-a-kind pom pom mobile to hang in the nursery 👶🏻 Read on to see all of the sweet details of this sprinkle celebration!

One of those “bonus” items was space for a home office. When we visited our apartment for the first time, it checked off most of the boxes on our must-have list (2 bedrooms, a dishwasher, space for a dining room table and chairs etc.) but it didn’t have a separate dedicated space for a home office. However, once we got settled in and things began to find their place, it looked like creating a dedicated workspace could be possible!

Backyard Makeover

One of the things that set our apartment apart from the other places we looked at was the outdoor space. Since we are on the ground floor of a brownstone, we have private access to the garden behind our building.
