My friend, Mariterese, is a very exuberant fun person. Recently, she had a bridal shower for a friend's daughter at her Chicago brownstone. She turned the courtyard into a fantasy land with Bali umbrellas ( bought from Romancing the Home of course!) , roses, candelabras and white linens. It was breathtaking - so young at heart and romantic for the Bride-to-Be. Rose petals all over the table - a Mariterese signature touch!- added romance to the luncheon. Each guest was given a beautifully embellished soap from Tokyomilk as a favor. The weather was a great and memories were made.
