TWINKLE TWINKLE BABY SHOWER
This invitation was so much fun to design we couldn't choose just one!
The welcome table was setup on an antique dresser the client had sitting in her foyer. We placed a gray sequin table cover on to protect the top and add a bit of glamour. We added a vase of baby's breath, bronze baby accessories and a sprinkling of paper flowers. A sign was placed a sign welcoming everyone to Cart's baby shower, a newborn picture of Cart, and a sign directing guests to fill out the cards in the basket to show love and support for Cart and her baby.
There was one card we created that allowed the ladies to give Cart advice on being a first time mommy and one card that promoted them to share their well wishes for the baby.
FOOD & SWEETS TABLE
By setting up the table symmetrically and with tonal textures we created a luxurious
wow factor. The sweets on this table were kept to a minimum because the cake was so special and the food was served in individual servings convenient for mingling.
The centerpiece of the table was a beautifully decorated two-tiered cake.
The table was flanked with individual Panara Chicken Cesar Salads served in gold
glittered footed bowls. They sat on a glass cake stand atop a linen and burlap box.
Mirrored tiered stands were filled with waffle bowls filled with Fruit Salads
and sat juxtaposition the cake. In front of each stand we placed a
rhinestone bowl filled with pale yellow lemon meringues.
Next to the cookies were small glass pedestals with mini fruit & yogurt parfaits atop white dollies. The parfaits had vanilla greek yogurt, pineapples, blueberries and honey granola.
Across the front of the table sat two milk glass vases with eco friendly bamboo forks and spoons and two rhinestone gold trays with Honey Ham and Cream Cheese Rolls.
Adding color and flavor were a tray of Bite Sized Caprese Salads and Chocolate Covered Strawberries. The ladies in attendance couldn't stop talking about how beautiful and delicious the spread of food was. All of the items were labeled with our signature labels created to coordinate with the neutral colors and twinkle twinkle little star theme.
The clients buffet was used as a drink station. We took advantage of the shelves to display a variety of details. The top shelf was filled with framed baby pictures of the mommy & daddy and a quote that read "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, How I Wonder What You Are."
The second shelf of the drink station featured cups decorated with gold and silver glittered stars and paper straws and drink flags. Since the gender was unknown the guests could use the gold, silver, gray or yellow star straws with flags that read "Team Girl" or "Team Boy"
to indicate to everyone their prediction of the baby's gender. There was also a framed sign directing them how to use the straws and wooden glittered letters that spelled "BABY".
On the bottom shelf, atop a champagne chevron sequin table cover sat a
arrangement of fresh flowers, a dispenser of Rosemary & Watermelon Infused
Water, a pitcher of Lemonade and a pitcher of Seltzer Water (for ladies who
like the fizz). There was also clear baby blocks with star confetti inside, an ice
bucket on a silver tray and another framed herliom picture.
The client requested no uncomfortable or embarrassing shower games so we provided
an interactive activity. Two baby pictures of the parents were enlarged and printed so
the guests can cut out the features of the expecting parents they hoped the baby would inherit and glue their ideal child together. This provided laughter and memories for the ladies and something for the mother-to-be to take home.

Signature Sweets Table & Themed Tableware
Our sweet client was a little girl turning five who had a love of Hello Kitty. Her mother wanted to throw a pretend sleepover party complete with nail painting. We were so pleased to provide her and 15 of her friends with a beautiful display to wow all the girls and their mothers.
