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!

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!
