a little partial to...


When creating this shower there was one thing I was certain of: there had to be lanterns. We had them hanging from a grand arbor on our wedding day, as I love their frivolity and simple beauty that produces smiles. Perhaps lanterns have become a trend for milestone events.

They are still floating from that funky old tree, which guards the Red Tide cottage. Though despite a forecast for showers, I'd like them to stay for awhile--or at least until the baby arrives home.

Those lanterns are gorgeous, the funky old tree isn't too shabby either.

Aren't those colours beautiful together? No baby should arrive home without lanterns to welcome them!!

I agree, those lanterns look perfect and what a way to welcome a new baby! The tree is pretty awesome as well.

Take care, Sue

The lanterns are so beautiful. Baby probably wants a few in his {?} room, too! Thanks again for a beyond great afternoon, sun, the sound of the ocean, friends and celebrating baby and you, it doesn't get much better than that.

Yes, love the lanterns! They are so cheery and have made such a sophisticated replacement for balloons, right? Hopefully no showers until the baby comes home!
