Tea Party Baby Shower

Sitting here, dreaming of summer, and pretending we are almost there! It’s been a cold and heavy winter for us here in Seattle, and only thing keeping us going is dreaming of those beautiful long summer days.

That brings me to the memory of this beautiful baby shower! I’m a bit biased to talk about this one, but I’ll do it anyway.

Cue the 80 degree sunny day, a warm breeze, the scent of the beautiful flowers from Pike Place Market, and one very excited, very pregnant lady.

Little miss Sophie was about a month away from entering this crazy world, so we were ready to celebrate P2E style for her arrival. The Tea Party Theme was creeping up for months to be my favorite idea, and seeing it come together was so awesome.

We found a ton of vintage tea cups, pots and saucers, and used them as flower vases, it was so dreamy. To add to the vintage theme, we got these paper plates for the tables.

The pastel colors are so close to my heart, I can’t even.

We had mini cherry cheesecakes, french macarons, cake pops, jello shots, kettle corn, and brigadeiros. Check out these cake pop sticks we used.

And there I am! Ready to POP. It would still be another 5 weeks before she arrives though. I was however about ready that day.

Some of the other products used:

Giant Paper Flowers

Hanging Wisteria branches

Garden Party

So colorful!! This was for a 1st birthday for a super precious baby girl. Instead of opting for the usual light pinks, princess themes, this mama decided to go bold with bright colors and beautiful florals. I love it!

We lucked out with their wall in the dining room, as it was painted red, so instead of adding a backdrop, we incorporated our colors to their interior decor, and it couldn’t have been better.

With all the colors on the table, we decided to keep the cake nice and simple. Buttercream rosettes are perfect for this kind of set-up.

On this next photo, you can see some cute Hello Kitty Cake Pops! We wanted a small incorporation of Hello Kitty here, that wouldn’t take away from the garden theme. Great idea!

Here’s a close-up of the cake pops: Hello Kitty Cake Pops

A Shower fit for a princess

We LOVE putting dessert tables together. This is my favorite therapy.

We had the opportunity recently to help the decor set-up for a baby shower, and it was a delight!

Everything was perfect. The pink and gold princess theme is on the top of my list of favorite themes out there!

We start off by choosing which desserts would fit best for this theme and color scheme.

My go-to choices for dessert tables almost always include cake pops, french macarons, and cupcakes. They are beautiful, easy to match the theme, and everybody loves them. Everybody.

When inserting cake into your dessert table, we like to think of other ways they can be displayed. Here we have a strawberry cake in a shooter glass.

Anything gold goes! And any excuse to use Ferrero Rocher. Place one, eat one. Place one, eat one.
