Those of you that have followed me for sometime know that we have faced many challenges in the past year and a half. The death of a wonderful friend, some health issues, and the care and passing of Steve's father and my mother. My 93 (almost 94) year old father has been great until recently when his memory has begun to fail. I never know when I am going to receive another confused call. Thankfully I decided to have the shower at Farmers Union or I would have really been in a pickle. The day before the shower I was just beginning to prepare the food when I got one of those calls. I spent eight hours in the ER the night before the shower. All of the flowers and decor were done and packed.
In my infinite wisdom I ordered a fabulous appetizer from the wonderful restaurant Patria across the street. Our friends and owners Paulo and Gloria brought it beautifully presented so all I had to do was park it on the table. Our good friends Don & Susan from Portobellos Catering came through with three wonderful salads at the last minute. Thanks guys!
and...the mother of the bride, my friend Pat, brought these fabulous cupcakes from Room for Dessert
Thank heavens for good friends. Pat Demling came all the way from Colorado to celebrate Eser and was a huge help to me at the last minute along with my daughter Jenna who also spent the night in the Emergency Room with me and dad.
We used the two large banquettes that you have seen here on either side of the entrance, and added a few feminine details.
We used vintage napkins and tied them with pink and white polka dot ribbon and lavender.
The food was served from two of the bar tables pushed together and accented with pink and white toppers that I ordered on Etsy.
We ordered the "and then there were three" napkins from Etsy and combined them
with these adorable lamb napkins from PPD.
I fashioned a special crown of leftover flowers for the adorable mom to be Ester. She obligingly wore it.
Ester and Stephen, the adorable parents to be.
My daughter Jenna, Ester, me and my friend Pat.
And... guess what I waited so long to get this posted.
Welcome Baby Emma Faith Huber! Isn't she precious?
