Where do we even start!? This baby blue and pink Marie Antoinette baby shower is the shower of our dreams! And for this mama expecting twins, she deserves every bit of it! From pink parasols hanging from the ceiling to a Marie Antoinette clad harpist, it couldn’t be more fabulous – or French. With a dessert display fit for a queen (including cookies with the queen’s face on them) and some bubbly to boot, we’re pretty sure every guest in attendance felt equally as showered!

We were all so excited to learn that Liz was having twins! We knew if anyone could handle twins on their first go around it would be Liz with her never ending energy. Her very best girlfriends could not wait to throw her the ultimate baby shower in Marie Antoinette style.
We tented the terrace at her friend’s home and set up a wonderland of pink and blue. Max Gil‘s gorgeous flowers adorned the tables set with vintage china in pinks and blues from Casa de Perrin. We designed an over the top dessert display with tons of treats from macarons to miniature eclairs, little tarts, iced cookies and not one but three cakes! To finish the scene we had a beautiful harpist dressed as Marie Antoinette play background music for the party.
Guests dined on lovely tea sandwiches, perfect miniature scones and delicious quiches for this high tea luncheon and then all sat around and watched Liz open presents. It was the perfect day.
