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!

I loved how the colors didn’t overwhelm the overall design of the items. Nice balance.
