I’m not one for a fuss being made over me, but I gotta say my baby shower was pretty damn awesome! I dont think I’ve ever had a party so quintessentially ME before, and I’ve got my friends Minhee & Jainé to thank for their creative direction in it. (I guess after working on a book together, you really get to know a person!) Keep scrolling to see all the showery goodness from the day! (I’m going to keep the photos of guests to a minimum in case they’re camera shy, but there’s plenty of inspiration to be had)
The scene was really set with Minhee’s invitations for the day….using my favorite color green and a punch of graphic black and white for this baby boy, she used an idea from our book, Weddings in Color, as the basis. I just love that oversized wax seal with a monogram she created!
Flowermuse provided the gorgeous white flowers that the girls arranged for the table in clusters. I didn’t realize it then (there was so much going on!), but it was very similar to what I had done for my wedding, so it was a nice tie in to that. It was also totally modern and easy to pull together too!
The monogram even carried out onto customized napkins and cocktail stirrers!
Minhee had asked my parents to send over pictures of me as a baby to blow up and hang around the space. Green balloons and garlands she made added to the decor for the walls.
If a black and white cookie isn’t the perfect favor for a party like this, then I don’t know what is!
Shake & Share Media was on hand with an awesome photobooth for guests to turn their pictures into a guestbook for me. I just love how all the pictures came out, and they made great souvenirs for guests as well!
I can’t remember when I first had a taste of Nine Cakes mint chocolate chip cake, but once I did, I knew I had to have it for whatever event I had coming up next! Its so delicious, and the leftovers have been great for those minty pregnancy cravings I’ve been having.
The day went by so quickly, but it was definitely filled with lots of love! Big thank you to all the hostesses for the baby shower: Minhee, Jainé, my mom, Raakhee, Anne, and Kiki!
