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.
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!
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
Thanks so much to Elena for sharing such a beautiful celebration with all of us. Everything was absolutely perfect!

Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
Please do not link up table settings that were just recently shared in the last few weeks for Tablescape Thursday.
