A Lake County Favorite for Events - Pine Ridge in Wickliffe

A Lake County Favorite for Events - Pine Ridge in Wickliffe...


...And one of my favorite places too!

I just held my daughter's baby shower at Pine Ridge CC in Wickliffe and I could not have been happier with the service or the food.

Don't let the CC - (Country Club) part of their name scare you off!  Pine Ridge CC at one time was a private club, but it is now open to the public and another local favorite Dino's Restaurant cater's for Pine Ridge.  

Pine Ridge has many different size rooms ranging from the Large to the Small and Quaint.  I used one of the small and quaint for my daughter's shower, we had 45 people at her shower.


Here's the room all decorated

And here are the table decorations and party favors

Baby Shower Favors - Pink Nail Polish with It's a Girl tag Baby Shower Table Decorations - Pink Christmas Trees

I made the Christmas trees out of 'girly stuff' - boas, ribbon, netting, & pipe cleaner.  Why Christmas Trees?  because we're close to kicking off the holiday season and I've always felt that babies are gifts and that's exactly what you find under christmas trees is gifts.  


I had my daughter's friend who is an interior decorator and artist make this Keepsake Door for me.     

Keepsake Door measures a child height with giraffe I came up with this idea from showing houses during this housing crisis.  It just broke my heart when I would go through a foreclosed home or a house that was in the midst of a short sale and vacant and I'd see little toys still laying around and children's height charts on walls or inside closets and I thought of all those special details left behind and during one such showing it popped in mind, too bad they didn't keep track of their children's heights on the door, they could have taken the door with them.  So when I heard I was going to be a grandmother I had this Keepsake Door made.


We had the amazing cupcakes from Baby Cakes in Downtown Willoughby ( you can reach them by calling 440-527-8609).  Everyone ranted and raved at how beautifully decorated they were and how scrumptious they tasted.

All in all the shower was beautiful!  The room was beautiful and the food was delicious!  I can not say enough good things about Pine Ridge - they are just an outstanding operation!  You can reach Pine Ridge by calling 440) 943-1010

I'll leave you with this fun fact about Pine Ridge - Pine Ridge is the former Corrigan Estate.  Corrigan of the Corrigan-McKinney Steel Company that eventually was acquired by the Republic Steel Corporation.  One of the ballrooms was the formal living room - it's crazy to see it in person and I just think WOW!  this was somebody's living room!

Wow! Christine!! What a fantastic localism post for Pine Ridge. We had to suggest it. You gave us so much information wrapped up in personality. The baby shower had to be a huge hit. Yes, baby's are a gift, what an idea you had. Love the door idea and yes, it always astounds us when we are in these older properties the size of the living rooms.
