Sep16 Ritzy Bee Shower 2014

Beatrice Lily was welcomed into the world four weeks ago, but before that friends and family came around to celebrate and anticipate her arrival. The event was held at the mother-to-be and event planner extraordinaire Maria of Ritzy Bee’s home .  The event was hosted by fellow Ritzy Bee genius Kelly and Suann of Simplesong Design.

Here’s Maria with a few of her favorite shower details:

“The invitation was an adorable carved wood B block with the details of the shower wrapped around them on a letter pressed card folded around the block…set on a little nest and mailed in a beautiful box. They took off a spin off my nursery animal menagerie theme and put adorable moss baby animals (giraffe, elephant & bears) around my house for decor…and the B wreath motif was made into a beautiful custom fabric used for the table runner, pillows and onto the panels of the outside bar.”

Sep02 A baby shower around a farm table 2014

A shower celebrated at the home of the soon-to-be grandparents with a gorgeous meal around a farm table built by the grandfather. The soon-to-be parents are also photographers and took fabulous photos of their shower. The whole thing is so classy and tasteful, I can’t get enough.

Aug13 Happy Camping: A birthday Party 2014

Dougnuts for guests, a naked banana and crème fraîche cake drizzled in caramel, utah mountains and lakes, teepees, s’mores, wood sign posts, impeccable details and top it all off with a canoe ride around the lake…I wish they had invited me! With a mom who is a floral and event designer, I wouldn’t expect anything less.  She spent almost a whole year dreaming up a party that exentuates the beauty surrounding them, and by golly did she accomplish such a goal. Take me camping!

Jul21 Stripes and Sparkles: A Baby Shower 2014

This chic baby shower took place in North Carolina, put on by a power house team that made the event beyond fantastic! My favorite element was that everything told a story, including the doughnuts: “During month seven she turned down a doughnut.” — how could you?

Jun25 A Modern Baby Party (not shower) 2014

Here’s a party thrown for Viv Jordan of the Eclectic Press to celebrate the expectation of baby girl Zoe.  It’s so geometric and funky, the guests were celebrating in modern perfection. Here’s Viv:
-
“I asked my friends organizing the shower if they’d be okay hosting a baby party instead of a traditional baby shower because I wanted my husband to participate in the festivities and they kindly said yes! The shower venue was held at a dear friend’s impeccable midcentury modern home on a steamy 106 degree Texas summer day. Heat aside, Jon and I felt so loved that day by how thoughtfully the details were executed from our favorite foods ( think green tea cake with jasmine buttercream = game changer) to the gorgeous flower arrangements to the coordination (90 people RSVPed, yikes!). The geometric backdrop for the drink station was a personal favorite!  The hostesses did a great job creating a beautiful shower while still keeping it gender neutral since we wanted to be surprised by the gender of our babe until birth. Despite the summer swelter, we all had a great time and in no time at all, we welcomed our amazing baby girl Zoë Ly Jordan into the world!”
