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!

Dec08 Mother & Daughter 2015

This shoot was centered around the theme of quality time between a mother and daughter. They spent an afternoon together reading fun books, making art, playing outside, and having a few bites of animal crackers in between. The best bits of life captured on film to keep as memories forever!
