A few weeks ago I hosted a baby shower for my dear friend Venus. She is expecting Baby Boy #2 in June and because she is fabulous and lives in New York City, I knew that she wanted to have a chic little tea party with her closest friends to celebrate in pure elegance and style.
Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon is located at the Inn at Irving Place in Gramercy Park. Lady Mendl’s offers a five-course afternoon tea with champagne! Everything from the finger sandwiches to the scones with clotted cream and jam were absolutely delicious! Their Marbury Room was perfect for our party of ten girls. [Read more...]
I love what my friend Celeste said my baby shower would be called: a baby “sprinkle”!!! As you already know dear readers, this is my third baby but thanks to one of my best friends, Ofelia, who believes every pregnancy should be celebrated, organized an awesome baby sprinkle! My girlfriends showed up yesterday for this little version of a shower and we had a delicious brunch at Sanctuary T in SoHo.
A custom menu! I love seeing my name in print!! Haha! We started off with a crisp fruit salad and I chose the truffled croquet monsieur, “mommy-to-be tea” and of course the chocolate cake for dessert. I ate it all! So yummy...
Look at these beautiful boxed favors! Ofelia did a wonderful job filling them up with jam, tea, and a little infuser!
A picture of all of all the girls! I’m so fortunate to have made amazing friends out here in the east coast. Some live in the city, some came in from Connecticut and some from New Jersey! I appreciate their presence, the gifts and most of all their friendship. All three of my babies have been so lucky to be welcomed and celebrated in fabulous and loving settings.
