THE BABY SHOWER SHOP
When we got the exciting news that we were expecting our first "designer baby" from one of our lead interior designers, Maddie - we knew we had to celebrate in style. We decided to host the baby shower at our retail store using a muted color palette with pops of pink, of course. We also turned all things functional into a visual display - shower games, deserts, and lunch was served.
Keep scrolling to see all of the pretty little details we used to celebrate Maddie and help her welcome her beautiful baby girl, Honor.
Welcoming Maddie's little one had us over the moon so we thought whats better than an arch of balloons. We found a company that had the exact color palette we were looking for. You can find these arches at Create & Inflate.
The tablescape is a mixture of classic essential pieces with a fun, whimsical flair from our new introduction of Dried Botanicals, fancy Taper Candles and our Drinkware + Glassware, which bring the wow factor we were looking for. One of our favorite placemat introductions this season was a must feature. You can rely on the Raffia Placemats to make a moment of any place-setting! The natural caning seat and back inserts on our boxy-body, Jude Chair, completed the look with a fresh and cheerful aesthetic, for baby girl!
Designer Tip: When seating a large party for any event one table always feels like an all inclusive route but the center stretch of table can be an intimidating focal point to style. Utilizing products of varying height allows for the decor to feel organic and interesting. Here, staggered heights and textures of candles, vases and dried botanicals allowed for an assortment of unique pieces to flow in an effortless way.
We love a multi-functioning focal point! Our shelf display needed a visual, we needed a game and Mama needed some eco-friendly re-usable bottles for baby girl. We found The Natural Baby Company and were immediately gawking at their chic Baby Quoddle Bottle. We opted to help a mama out by, "doing the honors", of breaking in the bottle for baby Honor, and gifting them to Mama Maddie after. We played Drink Up Baby and printed the rules to the game and framed them in our walnut brown Asher Frame for a fun visual of whats to come in the game department. Our White Asher Frame displays the title of our second game - Mommy or Daddy with accompanied question cards. Lastly, our Alabaster Ball Bookends were there to hold a baby book that each one of our team members personally selected and hand wrote a dedications and well wishes for the new family.
Babies Are Sweet... so we made a scene of the treats! We knew we could rely on one of the finest cake shops of Phoenix to really bring it in the sweets department so we left it to Andrea of A Bake Shop to feed our feed our visual and glutinous cravings. As expected, Andrea absolutely delivered! They matched our aesthetic perfectly with their seamlessly sleek execution of a stone-tone butter cream cake adorned with our vary own babies breath - it doesn't get more on theme than that. Personalized, "Dreamy", cookies accompanied by gold leaf macaroons and floral frosted cup cakes would have been enough but they went the extra mile to surprise us with a baby rattle cake pop, as a 'grab a go' gift for each place-setting. We love you A Bake Shop - you outdid yourself.
