A Parisian Bèbè Shower for the Books!

Category: DC, Paris, Parties, Vintage

Our baby shower was featured yesterday over on The Glitter Guide (click over to see the original feature with how I came up with a design + settled on a theme, as well as my top tips for planning your own or hosting one!)

I am beyond thrilled to finally be able to share ALL the eye candy right here with you lovelies!  Since this was my second baby, I wasn’t planning on having a big shower originally – I was leaning more towards a small sip + see, but a few friends convinced me to go big or go home once we found out it was a girl!  It was enough reason to celebrate and do something different 🙂  And you know we love a good excuse to throw a party – especially a pink one!  It was so dreamy and perfect, and I am incredibly thankful to all of the vendors who came together to make this as lovely as it was….scroll down for the dream team and a peek in to the event!

Still scheming on how I can get this gorg emerald velvet couch from White Glove Rentals to live in my house….shh!

These amazingly adorable dollhouses from Gold, Frankinscense & Myrrh did double duty as centerpieces and nursery decor!

You needed to see these chargers, china + flatware from White Glove Rentals up close….beyond!

Giselle Chreky nailed my vintage hairstyle! She is SO good. I mean, if you can manage to feel pretty at 7 months preggo, that’s winning!

 


Debra Jean Overholt Design + Danielle Couick Sandler from Magnolia Bluebird!

Petite Cheese + Charcuterie on pink marble slabs!

Is this not the cutest canned wine ever?!

Card drop!

Mini Eggs Benny = fave!

[PINK] mini chicken + waffles!

My sister-in-love (Kay Letter & Co.) does such pretty calligraphy!

Infuse your own bubbly station…

This cute, hand-drawn bar from Social Supply Events totally brought the girly, french patisserie vibe to the party!

Love these fellow girl boss beauties!

My son – stealing all the attention (and ladies hearts!) at his sister’s shower 😉 . Hudson and Ava will be 2 years and 4 months apart.

Mini [pink] chicken and waffles on liuttle ghost chairs – what the what!

Of course we had to outfit the wait staff in matching pink floral ties! It’s all in the details 🙂

Delicious shrimp and grits, pink whipped feta + strawberry toast with balsamic drizzle, deviled eggs with candied bacon, mini chicken and waffles…just a few of the yummy bites from Heirloom!

Who can say no to avocado toast?

My mother-in-law and adorable niece, India Rose!

If you read the original feature on Glitter Guide, you’ll see my tips for when to and when not to open presents at a shower…and why I finally gave in!

 

Kissing Cousins.
