Real Baby Shower: Vintage Blue Tricycle

Monday, July 11, 2011

Isn't this next baby shower over-the-top ADORABLE?!?! I love the vintage tricycle -- perfect for a baby shower or birthday party. I think I've only seen it done in red though, so I, of course, had to share this blue one from 2Chic Events & Design. From the invitations (by Invitations Inkto the GORGEOUS cakes (by Sweet Cakes by Rebecca), the design for this baby shower is superb. And... be sure to check out the cookies as well as the Mad Libs! What am I kidding? Check out everything captured by Jacqueline Photography (also the guest-of-honor)!

From 2Chic Events & Design... This October, 2Chic Events & Design was honored to plan a baby shower for one our very best friends, Jackie of Jacqueline Photography. The inspiration for the design of this baby shower came from the expectant Mommy's color scheme and a vintage-esque tricycle that was purchased for Baby Evan by her grandmother. With the help of the fabulous girls at Invitations Ink, we came up with a modern meets vintage theme that incorporated the tricycle throughout and we rolled with it. The girls at Invitations Ink started things off with the most adorable invitation, which the whole world fell in love with, and we went from there!

To share our source of inspiration with the guests, we used the tricycle as the main centerpiece and placed it right smack in the middle of the food table. Additional {absolutely beautiful} floral centerpieces were provided by Botanica Floral Designs. The handcrafted wooden letters that spelled Evan were the work of the Invitations Ink girls. We decided that the best placement for them would be on a vintage shutter that I had recently restored and embellished and it was the perfect fit!


The guests were treated to a vast assortment of finger foods {labeled accordingly, of course!}, white wine sangria, flavored Pellegrino, and finally, the most delicious cake known to man which was also provided by Sweet Cakes by Rebecca. While munching away, guest participated in a baby mad libs game, which had everyone cracking up, followed by a custom made version of Baby Bingo.


Guests were invited to take a piece of this lovely shower home with them in the form of desserts and candies from the dessert bar, which consisted of items made by friends of Jackie's along with some fabulous tricycle cookies from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca! We used paper bags with the tricycle logo on them for guests to fill. We also had a photo booth at the ready and guests also took home Evan Themed strips of fun and funny photos!
