PARTY DETAILS, as told by Melody

This nautical baby shower designed by the amazing Christine Zohrabians of Fancy That! Events was sheer perfection. When my sister and I were going through the photos after the event, we flipped through in  silence and my only response to her after we were done was “wow.” For someone who isn’t usually at a loss for words, I was stunned by the creativity, meticulousness and originality of this baby shower. The nautical elements combined the rustic with the fresh, without over-saturating the event.  The theme was definitely present, but as usual, had the right amount of subtlety. With gorgeous pieces by Tic-Tock Florals, an amazing cake by Cake Studio LA, artistic desserts by Rafi’s Pastry,  and to-die-for linens by La Tavola Linens, Christine and her fabulous team of vendors did it again. The event was just magical! The upcoming arrival of baby Matthew was definitely celebrated in style…
