What happens when you are expecting a baby? You have a baby shower. What happens when the mom-to-be and dad-to-be are both photographers? You get an explosion of ideas on how to have your baby shower! And of course, having a best friend that is a wedding planner, helps! Yellow and grey were the colors soon-to-be parents Lucy + Kevin chose for their wedding. These were the same colours used for their wedding so we wanted to incorporate it into their first baby shower too, but we added hints of pink (hooray, it’s a girl!), and lots of polka dots. And we all know, you can never go wrong with polka dots! The soft pallette and polka dots integrated throughout the event design made the celebration fit for a baby girl with a fun but sophisticated style.
This was a true labour of love. We sat down with the Mom-to-be and designed every charming detail you see here. Some were sourced, some were made by us, and some were made by the Mom-to-be!
The stationery, including the invitation and food labels were designed on paper by Lucy and then transferred digitally with computer magic, but her husband Kevin. The photobooth was also handled by Kevin of Fungke Images.
The Sweet Table was the highlight of the event and truly the focal point of this party as it proved to be a popular spot for photos! The three round cakes were made by Crystal from Kuppycakes, but the pink velvet cake wrapped in white ruffles with the handcrafted hippo and giraffe, was our favourite. Other treats included homemade mini cupcakes and rice krispie squares covered in pink chocolate, which were made by dear family and friends. The mommy-to-be made the petite fours and even the adorable marshamallow rattles, which served as shower favours for the guests.
Strings of paper spiral roses hung above the sweet table, added that touch of whimsy to the overall look. These beautiful artisan roses and circle garlands were provided by Pulp Function, a new online retail shop that specializes in paper-based products and marquee lights.
The strings of paper discs hanging from the ceiling in the yellow and grey colour palette just simply added that extra magical effect – adults and kids alike, couldn’t help but run through the floating polka dots!
We had such an amazing team of vendors, friends, and family who helped put together this beautiful and fun-filled baby shower!
