Baby Shower for a Baby Girl

My friend, Mariterese, lives in Apalachicola, Florida.   It is a romantic waterside town with quaint docks, shops and restaurants.  And some of the best biscuits are girl can eat are made in that little town!

Sunsets are spectacular, fishing is great, and her old Victorian home is gorgeous.  But when it comes to having stores to purchase party goods, the selection in Apalachicola  is pretty limited!  However, that big brown delivery truck goes everywhere and the internet is a shopper's paradise!

Last weekend, she hosted a baby shower in her beautiful old turn of the century home. And as usual, everything was stunning.

Entering the foyer, a fairy statue was graced with pink ribbon, fairy lights and pink roses.

This home's original woodwork has been meticulously maintained over the past 125 years and is a show stopper!  So elegant.  The foyer is long and can accommodate dining tables for additional seating at parties.

Mariterese purchased the wide pink ribbon on Etsy!

The Tobacco leaf china pattern tied all the colors together in the home.
The pink pin tuck tablecloth is from  Table Cloth factory- an online shop with wonderful affordable table linens.

A local florist ordered the pink  roses for Mariterese, who arranged them herself.

She mixed in sweet vintage plates with the Tobacco Leaf pattern- love it!

Dining room table was graced with pink roses, shells and silver rhinestone coral from Romancing the Home's last Christmas!

Beautifully wrapped favors of OPI Pink nail polish and spirit rattles in the shape of a heart.

Everyone was seated in the grand foyer for a lunch of Chicken Marbella and  Salad.

The sugar cookies and cakes were purchased and decorated with sugared and fresh roses.
You can purchase sugared edible roses on line in a variety of choices.  I order them from FancyFlours.
The cakes was a key lime pound cake from a store in Tallahassee- Food Glorious Food.  It was
served with Graeters Ice Cream-the famous artisan ice cream from Ohio-  now available at many grocery stores.

Sugared roses sit on top of iced sugar cookies- so pretty.
What a beautiful and inspiring party.
