Shelby did an awesome job on pulling it together quickly...we were running out of dates that would work for us all. Even still we missed some of you who had prior commitments, although the shower was still a huge success.
A good friend of ours, Cherrise, offered her backyard which was perfect for the event, with a shabby chic garden style tea . Thank you Cherrise for your graciousness extended once again, we love you for all you are in our lifes!
The tents were made for Shelby's wedding by my husband. He, by the way often gets drug into theses projects and always rescues us in our attempts to create what we can't. I had collected lace panels from local thrift shops for another project we are doing for the wedding ( I'll show at a later date). I held some aside to use as curtains on the backside of two of the tents, mainly for the look. We all know Cherrise's yard doesnn't need covering...with all the florals and plantings and the quaints play house, it truly lent to the overall look perfectly. The bare wire lamp shades with crystal chandeliers hung from each tent and added more shabby chic looks.
The vintage china plates and tea cups,
part of the collection for the wedding,
came in handy for the morning tea
and brunch. Our menu consisted of 2 delicious egg dishes with mini muffins prepared by Kristen. I made an assortment of muffins, bannana, apple cinnamon and blueberry cream cheese. Home made jams & jellies, bluberry pecan & raspberry, made by Aunt Janie, Alot of love......
Butter croissants and cut fresh fruit provided by Stacey. Our Teas were blueberry, cranberry and peach..served from quaint tea pots with sugar and cream. We served raspberry lemonade in
canning jars as well.
I made these net food coverings Ill have to show later the picture is not good. I toolamp shades and stripped them down to the wire and found this fabulous netting material to cover them with, added an anthropology drawer pull (I swiped from my daughters room) and walllla....functional and ver chic.
We used the old shabby chic dresser to store
The cupcakes, hydrangea and roses, not only looked amazing they tasted amazing, raspberry was my favorite, although the lemon was wonderful too.
Chelsey received many thoughtful gifts and was genuinely overwhelmed by all. Thank you again to everyone attending as well as all the help in blessing Chelsey with this event.
