Apr16 First Birthday Garden Bunny 2014

Today we have a first birthday party that is perfect inspiration for an easter party, it will make you melt!!! I can’t do it justice so here’s Photographer and excellent planner of this party Michele Hart to give you the details…

“Adelyn is one!  Literally 12 months ago she was a quiet, cuddly baby in my arms that could barely keep her eyes open and now she is not only walking but running… and eating real food, and saying her first words, and pretending she is a momma to her baby doll.  I can’t even remember what 3 months ago was like.

Some people say that spending money and time on a big birthday bash is excessive but I really like doing something extra special to mark the passage of time to celebrate Adelyn.  I want her to be awe inspired and giddy with excitement all day long.  And to be surrounded by warmth, love and beauty.  This is what I came up with:

Adelyn loves animals – especially the soft cuddly ones – so I decided to have a garden bunny theme with lots of soft neural colors.  The bunnies and balloons gave the event a playful and youthful feel but the overall tone was very sophisticated and elegant.  Garden roses stole the show making appearances not only on the table but as a garland on geronimo balloons, as a cake topper, and on the back of the highchair.  The “Garden Treats” menu added to the festivities and all dishes featured carrots – except for the cottontail macaroons – and provided a light lunch for our guests.

The concept and vision really came together when I started working with lana frankel on Adelyn’s invites.  She did a beautiful job hand illustrating everything from the invites to the menus.  Erin with plum sage brought my garden vision together with the use of beautiful garden roses and greenery to make creative vocal points for the day.  calluna events worked with chairished rentals  to create a simple dinner table layout to match the rest of the decor.  mulberries cake shop made the tastly carrot cake and tee & cakes prepared the vanilla macaroons.”

Feb27 SOHO Baby Shower 2014

As you may know, the entire Grey Likes Team has a big crush on fab photographer Jen Huang, and after seeing this Baby Shower I think we all love her a little more, plus we developed a few new obsessions (i.e. Firefly Events & Poppies and Posies Florals). I’m pretty sure this is the greatest baby shower I, or anyone has EVER seen.  There is garland on the roof next to exposed brick walls, there are plush couches, killer flowers, marvelous stationary and calligraphy, mini golden animal figures and of course a gorgeous mother-to-be.  Stop reading this, just go look, you’ll die!
GreyLikesBaby Firefly JenHuang14 01 SOHO Baby Shower

For the Kefalidis family, we wanted to create a fun and playful atmosphere, while keeping the esthetic clean, bright, and seasonal. One of our favorite details was using pieces of the expectant parents’ childhood artwork to decorate the walls! Instead of traditional baby shower games, we set up a “Baby Betting” station, where guests could place their bets on things like name, weight, and birth date. Guests we’re also treated to boardwalk style claw machine, stocked with plush baby farm animals. A combination of iron cocktail tables and wooden communal tables provided space for guests to gather and snack on foods from all over the world. In an effort to give baby a well rounded palate we chose a fun variety of foods including Latin Street Food, and a German Smokehouse station. Passed desserts included all of mom’s cravings, even pickles and ice cream! As guests departed, they were each given a small loaf of Vasilopita, which is a traditional Greek New Years Bread, with a coin backed inside. When you find the coin it brings you good luck in the new year!
