Real Baby Shower: Le Petite Pique Nique

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

How lucky is Jackie Wonders?!?! She not only received TWO fabulous baby showers (see the other
one here), but she also is friends with the insanely creative duo, Karrie and Elizabeth of Posh Paperie.
They put together this incredibly beautiful French Fete (originally seen on On To Baby) -- with all
the decorations and printed pieces. Love the brown paper bags used for the invitations and throughout the party. What a great idea! Enjoy all these detailed shots by one of my favorite photographers,
Jackie Wonders.

From Elizabeth... One of our dearest friends, jackie wonders, was about to have her second baby girl. Karrie and I wanted to throw a small & intimate shower for her, but something very different than the “normal” baby girl shower (pink!). So, we chose a french themed “pique nique” and played with the palette of red, indigo blue, cream & burlap. karrie designed a floral pattern that we used throughout the paper goods, and we incorporated a darling paper bag aspart of the invitation itself (the invite pulled out of the bag). we had a dessert, with bite sized treats (cream puffs, eclairs, fruit tarts, fresh fruit with mint garnish & shortbread cookies). we played a funny game - “match the french (baby) word to the english” & spent a wonderful time celebrating jackie and the upcoming birth of her precious daughter, wren. karrie and i designed several banners that hung throughout her house - the most prominent one being “wren” with silver glitter chipboard letters.
