Festival Du Bebe Shower – Sneak Peek

Masquerade Baby Shower Theme

I’m still waiting on some images from the Masquerade/Festival themed baby shower that I recently created for my friend Jen before I can do the full theme post, but I received some of the images from the (brilliant) photographer and was too excited not to at least do a little sneak peek =)

This theme was so much fun to work on! There’s a lot of crossover with Cirque Du Bebe, but I opted for several different colors this time + vibrant butterfly and Mardi Gras inspired details.

The Champagne/Cider bar was one of my favorite details… guests could start with champagne or non-alcoholic sparkling cider, then choose from a buffet of different mix-ins – like OJ or Chambord – to customize the bubbly to their liking!

For additional “bubbles”, we also served sparkling water & sparkling sodas at the “bar”. Ikea has these fabulous translucent acrylic champagne glasses right now that are only $1 each, and the aqua & red colors they come in worked perfectly for the theme… I was so excited to stumble on them!

Oh my goodness, my heart just skipped a beat! You have definately found what you are supposed to be doing!

Thanks, Shandra! Designing the party themes is definitely my “happy place” :)

TNP – Yes – I’ll be sharing downloadables of the framed signs, and then the invitations, favor tags, etc will be available for purchase soon at PolkaDotDesign.com – where everything can be personalized with the guest of honor’s name, due date, etc :)

This design will also be available in a “Festival du LOVE” version for bridal showers :)
