Winter Glam: “Snow Sprinkle” Baby Shower

Winter Glam: Snow Sprinkle Baby Shower

I’m so excited to share this elegant & creative “Snow Sprinkle” Baby Shower from Vanessa of Alchemy Fine Events & Invitations with you today – a gorgeous event to end 2010 in style! (or to begin 2011 in style, depending on when you’re reading this!)

Between the stunning fabric backdrop, wonderful use of crystal & glass to create a theme-appropriate “winter ice” vibe, and tempting treats like homemade marshmallows and adorable pumpkin pie pops (too cute!), there’s such great inspiration to be found here for all sorts of winter celebrations – from baby & bridal showers to holiday soirées, winter weddings, and beyond… which is great timing because winter has only just begun – as of December 21st!

“For this wintertime welcome of two little angels we created a flurry of glittering snowflakes and raindrops for this ‘Snow Sprinkle’.

Guest were welcomed to a “winter white” outdoor lounge area sprinkled with white lights and filled with modern lounge chairs draped with soft white netting & plush fur pillows.

Soft white baby’s breath and snowflake-like spider mums danced throughout the lounge in a mixture of modern and vintage glassware, while a framed sign reminded guests that “Snowflakes & Raindrops aren’t the only things falling from heaven…”!

As guests entered the outdoor lounge, they were greeted by a vintage English pram offering them cozy pashminas and scarves with a sign that read “Borrow a Scarf to stay as cozy as a Baby in a Carriage”.

To keep guests cozy on the inside, we featured a Cocoa Bar complete with gourmet hot cocoa, homemade marshmallows and crystal decanters full of various liquors to spice up their drink. A sign reading ‘Sips & Nips to Keep You Warm’ was displayed on the cocoa bar next to the elegant silver urn.

Snowflake-topped stir sticks were featured in crackled glasses displayed on top of raised green glass risers for an icy looking presentation.

Chocolate moon pies, pumpkin pie pops (recipe here), sugared donuts and delicate snowflake sugar cookies were just some of delectable treats offered as dipping-worthy sidekicks for the cocoa.

We also made two different types of homemade marshmallows – pumpkin spice and one dipped in mint milk chocolate.

Chilled homemade Coquito (coconut eggnog) served in beautiful aqua glass decanters was the perfect “cool” complement for guest to enjoy with their hot and toasty s’mores

Our ‘S’mores Station’ featured an outdoor firepit, roasting sticks sticks, homemade marshmallows, and the classic accoutrements.

For a shower-worthy backdrop to the Cocoa Bar, we created a wall of cascading strips of hand dyed fabric in aquas and blues and hung strands of crystals to dance between the colors. For a light and fluffy snowball effect we created large flowerballs of baby’s breath and displayed them on tall elegant glass vases.”
