Real Baby Shower: Our Precious Gift

Friday, August 5, 2011

TGIF! To celebrate our first Friday in August, I wanted to feature TWO baby showers today. EX-CIT-ING! The first was done by Spaceships and Laser Beams -- LOVE their name – they design parties with style just for boys, and have FANTASTIC themes that are all available for purchase on their etsy shop. So...
I suppose you will not be surprised that I was jumping up and down when I received this darling submission. Love the mix of colors -- especially the bright blue accents. Also adore the wrapped white gift boxes as dessert stands. Such an original idea! Hope you're equally impressed. :) Also... be sure to check back later today for baby shower #2.

From Stephanie... When the mama to be is a designer herself, it puts a little pressure on you to throw a stylish baby shower. Such was the case when I threw a small baby shower for one of my best friends, Jolene MacDonald-Szabo, who is co-owner of Two Blonde Chicks Design and Marketing. Since it is Jolene's third child, we threw an intimate gathering for our families plus a few close friends.

The theme was "Our Precious Gift" and naturally we developed a new collection for the event. The awesomely talented Spaceships and Laser Beams team member Catherine Cassidy stepped up to the plate, not only designing the collection but also catering the event. (Never one to stop with just one talent, Catherine is a trained graphic designer and owner of Clever Monkey as well as a fabulous vegan baker and owner of Goodness Bakeshop.

Fun fact: We included a "J" on the dessert table because everyone in their family - mommy,daddy, brother, sister and baby to be has a first name that starts with the letter J.

The Menu:
cucumber sandwhich on tomato bread
mediterranean hummus spirals
pesto asparagus puffs
greek salad kebabs with oregano dip
carrot cake with ginger icing
black forest cake
red velvet beet cupcakes
red velvet cookies
assorted macarons
fresh local strawberries
