A tea enthusiast since childhood, she spent many a lingering afternoons in a tea shop with shelves and shelves of loose tea, in Alaska where she grew up. So when it came time to select a baby shower theme for her soon-to-be baby girl (after having two boys) there was no doubt it had to be an over-the-top girly afternoon tea party!

The shower event was a magical and whimsical time. The guests still talk about how they really enjoyed being at the tea party, since most of them had never experienced one before.
