The Baby Shower was Beautiful...







I wrapped my present in navy and white spot paper and a pink and white stripe grosgrain ribbon to match the table setting.




The shower was beautiful. We had lots of fun and everyone loved the table setting. Kell was just so overwhelmed with it all. She looked so beautiful. You know the pregnant mum glow well she has it in full form. She was wearing the most beautiful pink dress which matched the table perfectly!! I know that she was so grateful and she gave me the most beautiful gift to thank me. I loved doing this for her, she is a very special friend. Lots of girly chatting was had by all - hopefully a day Kell will remember always. I have listed above some photos I took just before everyone arrived.

Anna-So wish I could step through the screen and into your beautiful home.
PS Keep meaning to send you my PO Box! Have to check with my husband to see what it is!

Anna said...

Thank you Maryam for such lovely comments. My house is always a bit neglected because I am just so busy doing everyone elses homes = I often take home all the left over pieces from the shop!! The one thing I do love is fine art so I am lucky to have a small collection of beautiful paintings and some beautiful French Antique furniture which I treasure very much. But the cushions and couches can change from one week to the next. My friends often come to my home and say wow it's completely different to last time I was here!!

I look forward to receiving your PO Box so I can get the beautiful book off to you!

Anna, it looks like you favor the Vicente Wolf look in your home -- everything is ethereal, elegant and clean. You really pulled it off with the shower! So lovely, just as I knew it would be. Congrats on a job well done.

I hate to repeat what everyone else has said but what a beautiful setting for the shower, simply gorgeous!

kstyle said...

Just lovely Anna and I would hire you as a decorator and there are very few people that would make that list for me. k

Anna said...

Thank you Courtney. You know I do love Vicente Wolfe's look - thank you for your kind words. As I said to Maryam - at home I often have a bit of a mismatch going because it is usually the leftovers which I end up with. I never actually put a scheme together for myself because I just don't have the time to. In my next house I AM going to spend the time and really select everything exactly the way I want it.

Anna said...

Thanks Kim and PP, yes the cupcakes were yummy!!

Anna said...

THanks K - very kind words and I am honered that I would make the list!!

pinkmohair said...

You make my list, too! Two months ago I had said to husband, "I think I'm the type who can't use a decorator, unless Mr. Wolf or Mr. Redd lived here," as I shook my head ruefully and stared at my toe.

NOW LOOK AT ME!

Beautfiul photos of a wonderful home. I hope I get to visit sometime, Anna. We would have such a great time.
