Over the weekend, our friend Carrie and I (Christin) had the greatest pleasure of hosting a baby shower for Lauren! We are beyond excited for her little bundle of joy expected next month! And we were thrilled to shower the new mommy to be with lots of love and gifts!
The concept for the baby shower was inspired from the baby nursery's color palette...Lots of navy and white with pops of turquoise and a bit of orange! And an elephant here and there as the "mascot" of the day! We had so much fun preparing for the event and I'm delighted to share the outcome!
Custom Invitations from Zazzle
Baby pics of mommy & daddy and baby's ultrasound photos greeted guests as they arrived
Party favors...turquoise chevron bags filled with assorted blue sweet treats
Lots of Chinese pottery incorporated to add to the blue and white palette
Fresh cut hydrangea and oranges made up the center pieces for the bistro tables
Chevron table runners were another way we introduced color and pattern
Pair of Mini Chinese Elephants...My gift to the new mommy and sweet baby boy!
Fresh cut philodendron leaves made great tropical center pieces
Bar set up of orangeade, fresh juices and fruit garnish, champagne and pellegrino
Carafes of mango juice, peach nectar and orange juice with garnishes of raspberries, strawberries and peaches for guests to create their own mimosa!
Salads and Desserts
Fresh croissants, chicken salad, pesto pasta salad, caprese salad and fruit salad
Sweet Treats...Delicious and Beautiful Chevron Patterned Cake, Almond Flavored French Macaroons and Scrumptious Rhythm Cafe Mini Cupcakes!
The day was a huge success! All our hard work paid off...we had a wonderful turn out, baby boy got many beautiful Luxe gifts, and most importantly Lauren was surrounded by so many of her friends and family who are overjoyed to celebrate and share this exciting time!
Mark and Lauren, I couldn't be happier for the both of you! I love you so much. You two are going to make incredible parents! I'm counting down the days till I get to meet your beautiful baby boy!!
