Baby Shower #2

Baby Shower #2 is now officially in the books. It was a lovely day at the Bed and Breakfast. I have some photos to share....

Because we have such a tiny house, we usually have our showers at a restaurant. This time I decided to do something different. I chose a Bed and Breakfast with a Luncheon Tea.

The house was built in 1886 and I just love the look of it. It has so much character and is definitely something I could live in. I couldn't run a Bed and Breakfast since I hate to cook and I really don't like waiting on people....but the house....I'll take it!

Sherry, the owner of the B & B does such a wonderful job. Sherry made the wonderful scones and I made the little place cards.

We had one table with eight people and one with seven. They were separated by a few feet so it still had a nice "together" feel to the seating arrangement. The menu consisted of finger sandwiches that all took into consideration Tresa's gluten free diet...there was chicken salad with craisins on rice crackers that everyone loved, turkey and swiss cheese on little ranch flavored rice cakes and sun dried tomato pesto and goat cheese on cucumber slices along with the scones with raspberry preserves and whipped cream.....then we had dessert.....strawberries, grapes, cheesecake, peanut butter cookies, mini lemon cupcakes and mini carrot cake cup cakes....with hot peach tea or iced raspberry tea. It was excellent!

She has two young girls that work with her when she does showers. They were so cute and did such a nice job!

Everything in the house is so wonderful. It's just filled with antiques. There was so much to look at!

I just love this! She has a corner set up like an old barber shop! Maybe it housed a barber shop at one time.

All of the wood in the house is just gorgeous. I loved the carving of the fireplace.

We finally got a SEES candy shop in our area. I had heard how good it was so Irv and I stopped yesterday and picked up some treats. These were lollipops that are suppose to be fabulous. I haven't had one yet, but everyone took some home with them. Chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch and cafe latte....Mmmmmmm! I put them in little sundae glasses and tied on a little with white polka dots!

These are the little plants I did for everyone to take home with them. It was just a couple little flowers and lots of baby's breath I added. I tied a bow around them and then added a little blue felt elephant that I made. I thought they turned out pretty cute and everyone seemed to like them.

Here are a few pictures we took of the guests. There are a few pictures that didn't turn out real well, so this isn't everyone....but most. I will do my best to tell you who they are from left to right....Debbie (Irv's sister), Marianna (Irv's nephew's wife), Tresa, Judy (Irv's sister), Arshia (Irv's nephew's wife) and Bernadette (my daughter-in-law).

Tresa with her friends, Liz, Jenny and Sabrina.

Kathy (Tresa's mother in law), Tresa, Kelly (Tresa's sister in law) and yours truly.

My girls....Bernadette and Tresa...

It was a lovely shower and she received so many great things for our little man. Now the showers are over and the countdown begins. We are going to their condo in a couple of weeks to set up the room and the following to go shopping for things for the walls and anything else our little man might need.

I am tired, but happy and now it is time to get back to my workshop! I have things to make, things to list and a new shop to get open. Life is oh so good...isn't it?

The plants are such a cute favor and really something I would have enjoyed getting as a shower guest.

It looks like the shower turned out great and there are so many beautiful women in your family!

Can't wait to see the new shop!!

Kathy, what a great idea to hold it in a B&B! They are always so full of atmosphere. Everything looks so pretty. Those wee plants are beautiful! The baby's breath makes them magical. Nice to see all the smiling faces!
