Pretty in Pink: A Princess Themed Baby Shower Tablescape

Welcome to the 361st Tablescape Thursday!

I don’t often have the opportunity to post table settings created for a baby shower, so I’m so excited to share the wonderful tables Elena recently put together in celebration of the birth of her 2 month old niece, Iris Maria.

Princess Themed Baby Shower with Royal Albert Old Country Roses

 

Elena said, “I went over the top with a girly-girl pink princess baby shower. By the way, both men and women were invited to this girly girl event.”

“I set three tables and all were festooned with real roses to match my “Old Country Roses” china, pink rose-embossed tablecloths and table runners, and  sprinkling of large and small pink and clear diamonds.”

On two of the tables, Elena used her beautiful “Old Country Roses” china.

Elena found gorgeous roses at the Phoenix flower market to match her china!

What a stunning bouquet! The colors are so perfect!

I’ve always admired this pattern, Royal Albert Old Country Roses. The best price I’ve been able to find for it is here: Royal Albert Old Country Roses 20-Piece Dinnerware Set

Elena said, “I didn’t have enough Old Country Roses for all three tables, so for one of the tables I used a Disney Princess Theme.   I found some Beauty and the Beast china which is sold only at the Beauty and the Beast gift shop in Disney World.”

“For this table I found Disney princess cotton and sewed napkins out of the material. I used Disney Beauty and the Beast cotton fabric to make the charger plates.” This dishware would be so perfect for a little girl’s birthday celebration, too!

Elena decorated the mirror and sideboard so beautifully for the shower!

The cake is absolutely wonderful!  Elena added a tiara to the top that she found on eBay. It’s an actual pageant crown…so fun! I know Elena’s family and friends must have been blown away by all the special little details Elena created for this lovely event!

Cake for Girl Baby Shower

 

Elena said, “I had a lot of fun with the beverage table because it featured Mr. Sharkie (from Pottery Barn) in a pink tutu with a crystal brooch and pink ribbons on his head. Grandson was very unhappy that I had dressed “his” sharkie up with girl clothes, but he sucked it up like a big boy because I asked him to. As soon as the guests left, he insisted on immediately removing the brooch and tutu from Mr. Sharkie.  LOL  :0)

Because he’s such a great beverage holder and conversation piece, I’ve been using Mr. Sharkie for many different occasions. For Halloween, he will have a costume, for Christmas I will probably put a Santa hat on him. I have been calling him, “A Shark For All Seasons.””  (Mr. Sharkie is currently on sale at Pottery Barn here: Shark Beverage Cooler )

Elena found the cute Octopus drink dispenser stand at Pottery Barn. I just noticed it’s on sale at Pottery Barn here: Octopus Stand

  1. Wow what a party! I can’t believe the colors in the roses she found! Love the tuille draped mirror with the princess crown and the rose satin table runners~ thanks for sharing all Elena’s sources too, Susan. Thanks for the tablescape fun today!

  2. Wow, what gorgeous tables. Everything is so pretty in pink. I am sure Mr. Sharkie was the favorite of all the men!
    Those Beauty and The Beast plates are gorgeous! Makes me want to take a trip to Disney World just to have some!

  3. Oh, what a beautiful celebration of the birth of her new granddaughter. All of that pink rose fabric used as runners and cloths, the beautiful, girly place settings, the gorgeous flowers and candles. I agree – perfect. Thank you for sharing this Susan and Elena and thanks for hosting the linky, Susan.

  4. What a beautiful shower! Love the pink and the cake is adorable! Thanks for hosting Susan:-)

  5. What a beautiful room, obviously prepared with love. The roses in all the varying shades of pink are stunning. Susan- thought of you while listening to Doctor Radio on SiriusXM yesterday. They were discussing travel abroad and jet lag. The recommendation was to start taking 3 mg of melatonin several days before your trip. Take it at the time you would go to bed over there. So if you go to bed at midnight, you would take it at 6PM in Atlanta to allow for the 6 hour time difference. Who wants to be tired and groggy on your wonderful adventure!!!

  6. Elena, what a beautiful table and thank you Susan for sharing it and hosting another great party!

  7. Mary from Virginia says:

    WOW! Pretty in Pink for sure! What a lovely and well thought out party to celebrate Iris; from the gorgeous flowers to the stunning china. Is there nothing greater than using china??! 🙂

    Loved the outdoor drink table. A little something for everyone!

    Elena, you worked yourself to pieces I am sure. Thank you for sending your pictures to Susan for all of us to see and gather some fun ideas for our next party. Beautifully done!

  8. How cute was this! Love the elegance she put to this bridal shower. The roses are gorgeous and so is the cake with it’s tiara! That’s too cute how she dressed up Mr. Sharkie! The beverage container is perfect with it too. My family always uses decorative paper plates- we’re not so classy!

  9. Linda Page says:

    Old Country Roses is the china that my mom bought when they lived in England. She got just about everything including tea pot!! This is being passed down to me and I love it! Elena’s tables are beautiful. I love the gorgeous charger plates. Awesome. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Oh, my goodness! This is just lovely! I think it is wonderful that men and women are at this celebration. So cute to dress up Mr. Sharkie! Great idea and I look forward to seeing more outfits as the year goes on. What fun this must have been to put together. Old Country Roses was at Costco earlier this year. I wanted to buy so badly but could not figure out where in the world I would store it! Now, I am regretting that decision!

  11. Fresh flowers beautiful and always make a party extra special. Great use of all the China. Gotta love a party shark!

  12. Elizabeth says:

    Beautiful ! I never use my old country roses but this post makes me want to !

  13. pam ~ crumpety cottage says:

    Wow, Elena, I love all the over the top pink and lilac! So pretty and sooo girly. I also love the ornate gold chargers. The china with it’s gold rim looks so nice sitting against them. Love the netting, the napkins, candles, the ‘diamonds,’ … all the glitz. Even the fun straws in the crystal glasses. And the rose bouquets truly are a perfect match to the china. It would have been wonderful being a guest. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Thanks so much for sharing this with us!
    Beautiful and so creative!
    Can’t wait til I have a grand-daughter some day!
    This post started the “Can’t Wait!”
    🙂

  15. That was one incrediable shower!!! EVERYTHING is amazing, she thought of every detail!!! Thanks to you both for sharing this!

  16. Adorable!! Love the dishes….

  17. Oh my, such fairy tail, cotton candy type of table for celebrating the birth f a little girl.
    Thank you so much for hosting sweet Susan.
    Hugs,
    FABBY

  18. I love the theme! The pink rose tableclothes are gorgeous and the octopus beverage dispenser holder is fantastic!

    This baby shower is so sophisticated in stylish, very genteel and grown-up. I am a big fan of those showers vs. getting too “cute” (easy to do with a baby shower). I recently did a baby shower for a little boy with a shabby chic nautical theme and it was a great affair! http://www.peonyandgrahams.com/2015/07/ahoy-it-is-boy.html

  19. Susan,
    What a darling vignette for a girl baby shower or young lady tea party. I just saw (on Thursday) the acrylic diamonds in clear and pink at Wal-Mart. I loved them, but could not imagine what to do with them so I returned them to the shelf. Now I know I should have bought a couple of bags for my “what if – maybe someday” drawer. They were in the floral department with the colored half-marbles used in vases, rose bowls, etc. and were just a few GW’ s per package. Those Waterford water goblets look a lot like my Lady Anne goblets by Gorham. Both beautiful!!! My favorite part of the Cinderella story were the pictures of her bird and mice friends helping her sew and scrub. Thanks. Ashley

  20. Thank you, everyone, for your very kind words. I had a TON of fun decorating for this family baby shower. I absolutely loved going “over-the-top” with a pink girly-girl theme. Thanks once again to Susan for graciously hosting Tablescape Thursdays. I’m in love with BNOTP! :0)

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
