Baby showers are such a joyous occasion, but planning an event feels extra special when it’s for one of our own. Back in the spring of 2014, we had the fun experience of throwing a bash for Mood Events team member, Lauryn, and we’re so excited to relive it with you today on the blog!
It was a lighthearted celebration full of food, drinks, bright décor, family and friends. The vibrant shower theme was travel, celebrating the parents-to-be’s love of exploring and seeing the world. We took a non-traditional and casual approach to the occasion, one that would welcome all of their guests, both men and women, who were coming together to shower the parents-to-be with joy! The celebration took place at Local Kitchen and Bar in Ferndale, MI, where we transformed the space utilizing a modern pink and blue color palette. The tasteful accessories such as oversized balloons, Gerber daisies, and creatively adorned tabletops added to the fun.
While we LOVE paper, sometimes we do branch out into the digital world as we did here with a very personal, sweet video evite. Check the video out here: http://laszczak-babyshower.craftedtoyou.com. But never fear, we had lots of paper love on event day!! Custom map elements and posters featuring sayings such as, Oh, the places she’ll go and The world is her oyster, brought this celebration of a new little traveler to life! There was a handmade photo backdrop wall made of fabric strips along one wall where guests could snap their photos with a Polaroid. There was also a sweets table backed with maps and colorful pinwheels (handmade by our very own, the lovely Shannon).
It was a strolling event, so drinks were passed and delicious food stations offered plenty of fun brunch selections. The bar was set for made to order Bloody Mary’s, sangria, and interesting beers. Guests departed with full bellies, full hearts, and travel boxes of handmade chocolates made by the Grandmas-to-be.
It was a truly unique event, one that we will cherish forever. It feels like yesterday, but our fifth Mood little lady is already nearly 2 years old! How times travels when you’re having fun… and we’re always having fun!
