{Smitten} Events: Baby Shower

August 10, 2009

Smitten had a great and productive weekend. The baby shower that we have been planning for weeks came to fruition yesterday and everything was perfect! It was so wonderful to see the guests, our client, and the mom-to-be happy with the event. Everyone had a great time and we couldn’t have asked for anything more! See the pictures below.

Smitten created an email invite for our client using the mom-to-be’s baby room colors- tiffany blue, beige, and black.

We used this theme for all of the paper goods that we custom designed for this event including the place cards and the CD favors. Take a look:

For place settings, our client wanted natural fans as the party was outdoors in the middle of August. It was a great idea to cool people off while being a great decorative piece. We found these fans cheaply online and spruced them up by placing silver beads on a ribbon tied to the handles.

To add to the baby themed decor- Smitten had extra milk bottles lying around to use as flower vases. They turned out pretty cute:

For games and things to do, Smitten offered the idea of personalized onesies as a conversation starter as well as another great decorative piece. Our client sent each of the guests one blank onesie and asked that they decorate/personalize it and send it back before the event. At the event we hung them with twine and clothespins. It was a great hit!

Since the event was at the mom-to-be’s beautiful backyard, our client really wanted to transform the space and saw images of beautiful lanterns with butterflies on them. We decided to replicate that image and it truly created a festive atmosphere:

For drinks, we had champagne, white wines, homemade sangria and lemonade with sliced lemons!

We had a ton of fun doing this wonderful event. We got to be really creative and hands on. Thank you to our client for her great ideas, her flexibility, and for being so much fun!

Enjoy!
