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

A Gorgeous Lemon & Lavender Baby Shower

If you haven’t gotten your springtime fix from the previous bridal shower post (we know we haven’t), then you’re in luck! As promised, here is the Lemon & Lavender Baby Shower dreamed up by Valerie Gimre of Charming Touch Parties, who simultaneously planned both showers around the same theme, but with their own unique details! In Valerie’s own words, “Both events were lovely, charming, and memorable in their own ways.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves ;).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Lemon adorned floral arrangements & a fondant bow, lavender flowers & lemon slice decorated cake
– Blackberry garnished champagne + berry topped mini cakes, lemon bars & cake ball baby rattles
– Custom ‘Wishes for Mom’ book for guests to write in + pinwheel & lemon onesie garlands
