One of the shifts I have been making is to lean into my strengths and passions and realize that I can’t and shouldn’t attempt to do it all.
I am grateful to have collaborated with a dream team of women to create a magical high-tea baby shower for my friend Laura as she prepared to welcome her baby girl.
Rosewood Event Design- Decor & Florals
Andrea and Carmen of Rosewood Event Design turned my request for a whimsical and feminine high-tea into an elegant baby shower that felt like we had stepped into a fairy tale.
The Rosewood Event ladies were a pleasure to work with. From our first site visit to accommodating changes in guest counts, they were both professional and full of inspired ideas to make this event more than I even dreamed possible.
Stay tuned for an interview with Andrea where we discuss how she went from stay-at-home mom to running a successful event planning company with her friend, Carmen.
Sarah Davids Photography
If you’ve been to one of my events, you know I’m often running around looking for my camera so I can capture all of the special moments. Having Sarah Davids photograph the beauty of this day allowed me to stay in the moment instead of trying to capture it.
Sarah captured all of the gorgeous details, including Laura’s first peek at the space, some stunning bump photos for Laura to treasure always, and a few guests and I even managed to get some fresh new headshots.
High Tea Treats
Laura and I have been taking each other for high-teas to celebrate all special events for years and are both fans of the classics, which made deciding what to serve the guests easy.
Classic high-tea menu
- Egg salad finger sandwiches
- Cucumber with dill cream cheese finger sandwiches
- Cream scones with Devonshire cream and jam.
- Creamy Earl Grey
- A boozy and refreshing iced tea for the guests when they arrived. I’ll share this recipe soon.
