On December 9, 2012, Lisa’s friends gathered to celebrate the impending arrival of twins, a boy and a girl, with a special family tradition, an afternoon tea. An outdoor garden party, complete with pink and blue accents to celebrate the tiny guests of honor, was decked out with couches for lounging provided by AFR Event Furnishings. Guests were encouraged to decorate two onesies (one boy and one girl) for the twins and enjoyed classic afternoon tea bites like English tea sandwiches and warm scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserves catered by Puff ‘n Stuff Catering.

The shower was an outdoor garden party and being pregnant with twins, a boy and a girl, pink and blue accents were the perfect touch with couches provided by AFR Event Furnishings to lounge on, and a catered lunch.
The theme of the shower was a garden tea party, in honor of Lisa’s late mother-in-law who loved afternoon tea. She passed on her favorite antique tea pot after learning that Lisa loved afternoon tea as much as she did. She passed away but she and Lisa’s love for tea has been honored not only on the couple’s wedding day but now their baby shower.
The delicious and traditional tea party delights, provided by Puff ‘n Stuff Catering, included classic English tea sandwiches, Maryland crab cake and warm scones served with clotted cream and strawberry preserves. Yum!
Guests not only enjoyed great food and champagne but also making the fun gifts. Guests were mailed two onesies (one boy and one girl) with the invitation and were asked to decorate them for the shower in their unique style for the twins. It was a really fun surprise for Lisa to see all of the personalized outfits!
