As Lauren mentioned, last weekend was the beautiful baby shower she planned for me, but we were also celebrating another very special Mom-to-Be. I am beyond lucky to be going through this pregnancy process for the first time with my friend Steph and wanted to show my appreciation by helping out in any way I could. Two long time friends (Shireen and Lesley) and I each took on separate projects with a specific theme and color scheme in mind, and I have to say I am really proud of how it all came out and especially how it all went together so nicely. Not to mention, Steph loves attending high tea and has very fond memories of her mom taking her throughout her childhood which she knows she will pass on to her own daughter. 

Upon each guest’s arrival, they dropped off their gifts under this handmade “It’s a Girl” bunting. I love to wrap my party gifts to go along with the theme or color scheme as much as possible. As I had a few flower and ribbon scraps left over, I was able to include those in Steph’s wrapped gift as well. 

Snacks and drinks were provided by our party Hostess with the Mostess, Shireen, for all of the women to enjoy as they caught up with each other. 

Our host’s dining area was the perfect place to set up our official high tea complete with lots of flowers and candlelight, gold chiavari chairs, and loads of pink details. 

Shireen created different types of tea sandwiches for all of the ladies to enjoy along with salads and flavored tea (or champagne … take your pick!). 

Our guest of honor got a special “Baby Girl” bunting at her seat and mug that said “Mommy”. 

These perfect pink mugs (made by Lesley) were the exact right way for all guests to find their seat at the table and also a really nice personalized take home gift. 

I included a little burlap sachet to each place setting that I made with a flower detail, a bit of pink tassel, and a personalized tag. Each one was filled with bags of green tea and a few sugar cubes.

Beautiful flower arrangements and a donut tower decorated Lesley’s adorable candy table. We filled our collection of glass apothecary jars with all pink candy … So cute! 

This mason jar was decorated to hold props for photos in our fun candy room. 

As you all know, I love to craft when I can! I had so much fun making these pink and gold glitter props for this special event! I love the mix of baby symbols (a bottle, bib, and pacifier) along with a tea cup to go with our theme and some cute little sayings in fancy fonts. 

In addition to candy and donuts, dessert included these adorable fruit cups topped with whipped cream. Don’t you just love the pretty party plates and gold utensils Shireen found!?

As I mentioned, all of the details from the party came together so perfectly. I would work with this team again any day as each of these girls was dedicated to making it beautiful for their best friend and worked so hard to do so. Hooray for Shireen and Lesley!

         

I couldn’t be happier for these two to become parents so soon and to be going through all of this together! Our little girls will be born less than a month apart and are sure to be forever friends. I can’t wait to take them on walks together with my friend Steph, and I know I will have someone to continue to lean on when I have questions or concerns who is going through the same things at the same time. Congrats to Steph and Craig!
