A baby shower! A little girl! It was great fun to look forward to this celebration, (as if every celebratory event isn't anticipated with elation), but this one was really special... and right up my creative alley. Let the brainstorming, not to mention the Pinteresting, begin.
I immediately enlisted the help of my wonderful daughter and blog partner Nic. Her sensibilities and eye for the tasteful yet approachable in both the esthetics and culinary, is unmatched. I also most definately needed my sister Annie, who is an accountant, but was a restauranteur, along with her chef husband, for 20+ years.
As always, we began by envisioning the space... the flow, the atmosphere, the decor, the food.
The goal for this event was to have a beautiful, sophisticated baby shower... beautiful handmade invitations and decorations, beautiful fresh flowers, beautiful sophisticated food.
What you see is the final result. The food was amazingly delicious and the feedback from guests phenomenal.
In addition to this we created the DIY Rotating Condiment Centerpiece a lovely Beverage Station, and an Easy To Make Floral Backdrop for the fireplace mantle, (all pictured below). See more at Bennett & Marissa's Table.
