Fabulous Fiesta Inspired Baby Shower {Gender Neutral}

OH, BABY! These little ones will be cha-cha-chaing into the world after such a fabulously fun Mexican Fiesta Baby Shower! When graphic designer friends Ashley and Sam announced they were both expecting within a few weeks of each other, their friends decided that a gender-neutral, joint couples shower was in order. Taking inspiration from the love of typography and Mexican-inspired tattoos that both moms-to-be have, you’ll have to see how Allison Rinaldi Event Design and friends fired up this baby shower celebration in STYLE (think jalapeños and virgin margaritas!).

PARTY DETAILS to look out for:

– Giant gold letter balloons, gold glitter tablecloth, and colorful papel picado garland
–  Fun & unique activities like a temporary tattoo station and “Baby’s First Typeface” craft
– Custom piñata and party hashtag napkins + adorable hand-crafted mini piñatas
– Gold animal figurine topped cupcakes and floating candles in lime-filled vases

Modern Black & White Baby Shower ish Celebration

What’s black, white, and beautifully chic all over? This Modern Black & White Baby Shower-ish Celebration styled by the talented Christina Christian of Something Chic! I used “ish” in the title because this is actually a first birthday celebration for clothing line Sammy & Nat, brought to life in the form of a shower for Lexi and Chase. The serene vibe of this classic and mostly monochromatic affair feels like such a refreshing change of pace to me right now! (I’m currently designing themes for 5 and 11 year old girls myself.) Don’t get me wrong… you know I love buckets of color and all things covered in glitter around here, but today I’m feeling quite head-over-heels for this timeless & sophisticated look.

PARTY DETAILS to look out for:

– Jumbo white balloons + fabulous polka dot tissue tassels dessert table backdrop
– Pom Pom clothesline chair garland + mini clothespins on the place settings & favors
– Heart graphic balloons, black satin ribbon bows, & birch paper straws with “baby” flags
– Polka dot & onesie fondant toppers adorning cupcakes in striped baking cups

Bright & Quirky Gold Unicorn Baby Shower

Janelle Siegrist of Lee Mae Marie surprised her friends, Brooke & TJ of Brooke Courtney Photography, with some added sweetness (aka that AWESOME dessert table!) at their bright – and fabulously outside-the-box – Gold Unicorn Baby Shower. I instantly fell in love with the pics from this colorful co-ed bash, which was a group effort by loved ones. Quirky accents like spray-painted unicorns,  retro candies and giant gold “O BABY” balloons add such a fun vibe! Plus, who wouldn’t love this friendly reminder…”Be yourself, unless you can be a unicorn, then always be a unicorn.” ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Gold unicorn topped pink ombre cake + a DIY gold unicorn mount & mini unicorn figurines throughout
– DIY painted floral centerpieces & glittered candelabras filled with succulents (genius!)
– Beautifully hand-lettered candy labels + gold dusted cake pops & colorful macarons
– Fun, gender neutral shower games that everyone can take part in!
– Rainbow confetti sprinkled table runner & upside down umbrellas from the ceiling

Operation Shower Sunshine Farms Event Recap!

If you’re a longtime reader, than you may remember waaaay back in the day when I helped put together an Operation Shower event here in San Diego with a modern-meets-rustic “Sunshine Farms” theme. Well, fast forward to today, and I’m so excited to share the UPDATED twist on this theme with you!

When OS decided to use this theme again for an event in Atlanta this past fall, I thought it was about time for the paper collection to get a little makeover first. :) So I spiffed up the original designs a bit and created some playful new signage with phrases like “About to Hatch” and “It’s a BABY, Ya’ll!“. Then, true to form, Operation Shower & their incredibly talented volunteer vendors worked their magic on adorable matching decorations and desserts. The result was this amazing celebration for 30 deserving military moms, and all I can say is… YA’LL, it turned out SUPER SWEET! ;)

P.S. If you want to use this paper collection for a baby shower of your own – it will be available for purchase on Hostess INK early next week! Stay tuned…

DECOR HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Rag tie fabric garlands on the chairs + a colorful bandana-and-doily dessert table garland
– Festive centerpieces with chalkboard rooster silhouettes & darling plush chickens
– Modern farm scene cake (LOVE!) + vibrant & colorful hand-painted farm cookies
– Boxed lunches with gingham napkins + “Raised with Love” drink flags
– Stamped burlap table runners, spilled veggie baskets, & “fresh picked” farm florals

From cool “Message in a Bottle” invitations adorned with lighthouse stamps to tons of homemade treats, it’s clear that Jennifer Kenning of Seakettle put so much love – and lots of DIY hours! – into this creative Nautical Baby Shower for her (sea-and-sun-loving) sister-in-law. Clever details like folded “sailboat” napkins at each place setting, playful nautical themed props […]
