Cheers to new babies! At Momtrends, we admit it, we're a little baby crazy. When part of the fabulous duo behind Project Nursery announced baby #3 was on the way we did a little happy dance. Melisa Fluhr is a design powerhouse and a lovely friend--she's got a gorgeous family, but one thing was missing: A GIRL!
Well, one is on the way and her Project Nursery partner Pam Ginocchio plotted “Melisa’s Surprise Baby Shower.” Lucky us, two members of our team got to attend the swank shower held in the Penthouse of the Mondrian SoHo.
It was an incredible day celebrating #projectbabygirl and the room couldn't have been more gorgeous. The penthouse suite overlooked the Hudson River and we had a gorgeous view. The PN girls looped the talented team at Minted to design the space. I think they nailed it! The rooms was dusted with metallics with subdued pinks and mints sprinkled in.
Amazon Baby played host and brought along Rosie Pope. She's kind of an expert--not only does she have four little ones of her own, she's also got a baby product and maternity empire. Rosie toasted the hostess and regaled us all with the magic of the "dip and dry" baby washing method.

In addition to great friends and great food, we also got to play a game of "design the dream nursery." Nicole and Sherri teamed up to come up with a mint and gold room that matched the party decor. Alas, we came in second and just missed out on winning the $500 Amazon gift card. SNAP!
