Jan14 Mint, White, Gold 2016

Love the colors, love the design, love the gold, so here’s Chelsea of CK Wedding & Event Design:

What happens when an event planner decides to host a baby sprinkle for her business partner/Best friend? You get an over the top gorgeous design. This was shower was for a 2nd baby and since I believe that everything should be celebrated with a party. I decided to host a more intimate brunch, which included a bagel and yogurt parfait bar. We gathered some of the Mommy to be closest friends and family at a private home. We called it a baby sprinkle since we had showered her the first time with the first baby a few years ago.

The design inspiration came from the nursery going with mint, white and gold. Using geometrics shapes throughout the tablescape, which are also used in the baby nursery. Since the day was going to be a nonconventional shower, we skipped the games and instead set up a station for each guest to create a mini canvas print to hang in the nursery.

Jan07 Cabo 2016

I cannot get enough. I cannot. Here’s Phuong of Mibellarosa Designs for the details:
“I decided to incorporate both hot pink and orange to counter the aqua blue inspired by Cabo’s beautiful beaches and to keep the palette gender-neutral. The beach theme flowed throughout the details from the air plant glass terrarium placeholders, to the hand-painted watercolor name and gift tags, to the cake which resembled a beautiful sunset over the ocean horizon. We hand-tied their party favor boxes with two different pieces of fabric to mirror shades of the beach.
Brunch was held in the courtyard of renowned Hugo’s restaurant in Houston, Texas where the ladies shared laughs, hugs, advice, and stories of the mom-to-be while enjoying a delicious authentic Mexican buffet with mimosas and margaritas, of course.”

Dec17 Bixby & Pine 2015

Well I’m obsessed with this baby shower.  The details are exquisite and modern but full of warmth and a candlelit glow.

Here’s the fabulous event design and planning company Bixby & Pine to tell you more:

As an event planning and design company we don’t get to do our own events very often. We also don’t know the meaning of small scale. When we had the chance to plan a baby shower for one of our own and her little girl on the way, we knew it had to be a little out of the ordinary!

Anna Peters photographed the evening’s events with film. We love her artistic style and she was a joy to work with on this special day. She knew exactly what moments to capture! What a blessing it will be to look back at these images one day.

Grand Event Rentals is always our go to rental company for plates, glasses and linens. They have these awesome black water goblets which really stand out on the tables! Burgundy napkins added some color to the table along with the tiny succulent favors from Sarah at Letter and Line Studio.

While our business, Bixby + Pine, focuses on planning and design, we are kind of jack of all trades kind of girls. We designed the paper products, baked the desserts, and designed the florals. We love letting our creativity shine and that is exactly what the shower allowed us to do. The soon-to-be-grandma made the amazing food with the help of the soon-to-be-grandpa. We are all still dreaming of the appetizers and potato soup bar with all the fixings! For dessert we had some fall favorites like pumpkin pie and apple crisp as well as Ashley’s, the mama-to-be, favorite white naked cake! The sangria at the bar was a huge hit, we probably should have make a double batch!

 

We are ticked pink with how everything came together. Ashley wanted more of a sophisticated dinner party than a traditional baby shower and we think that is exactly what this turned out to be. We can’t wait for this little baby girl’s arrival in just a few short weeks!
