Nautical Baby Shower

Having the opportunity to design different and unique invitations is
what I enjoy most. When I first heard this theme, my brain went
into over load. I really enjoyed designing the whole event, from the
invitations to the decor. The invitation sets the style and mood for
the event and this shower was sure to be elegant.
The invitations were designed in a classic yellow and blue.

When guests arrived, they cut a string to guess what size the
Mommy's belly was. This is one of my favorite games. 

This is the entrance to the shower. The parents wanted something a
little different for the favor boxes so we designed little sail boats
and they loved it! Each one was filled with white life saver mints.
Aren't they darling?

Here is an up close picture of the tables settings.
We placed a fishing net in the middle of the table as a table runner.
Tied it with jupe rope on the ends and placed shells on the top of the
fish net. The large glass vases were filled with sand and branches.
Each guest had a sail boat.

Here are a few pictures of the food display. We also filled some of
the apothecary jars with sand and shells. Apothecary jars aren't
always for candy. You can always find something to fill them with.

This was the dessert table display which included a sail boat theme
cake, cupcakes, vanilla pudding, strawberries stuffed with
cheesecakes filling, cookies, chocolate covered marshmallows, and
chocolate covered donuts. Sounds yummy right?

I love how our JELL-O sail boats came out.

Here are some of the desserts! The chocolate covered marshmallow
display we designed.

Thank you to some of our vendors.

Miranda's Sweet Shop

While planning our "Sweet Shop" party we had so much fun. Working with Miranda's mom was easy and fun, Miranda and my son go to school together. We chat every morning. So when she asked us to help her with her daughter's party, we stepped up to the challenge. We immediately started brainstorming with all the little details that can be done.
We were so excited and could not wait.

The party day came and it was so windy. The day was beautiful, but very windy! Setting up was a challenge.  

This was candy station. Talk about a sugar rush huh?!
Let's break it down as to what candy's we had.

Candy Hearts and Mint Thank you treats.


Rainbow Nerd and Rock Candy.

I LOVE the rainbow nerds.

Sour worms and gummy fish

Chocolatete covered sixlets

Marshmallow Cupcake Pops

Are you having a tooth ache yet? Well there's more. Of course we had to have Misha's Cupcakes. The flavor was Vanilla, Chocolate, Red Velvet, Cookie Dough, Guava and an extra large Cupcake for the birthday girl. One of my faves is the guava.
They are just delish have you tried one yet?

When designing our banners we try to make each banner different for everyone. That's why when designing this banner I had a blast. I spelled out her name with lollipops .
I fell in love with the banner.

Do you like it?

The backdrop was purchased at Home Goods. I found it darling and perfect for the party.

We made topiaries made from cupcake liners.  They were Pink, Green, and Yellow. Along with a sign beside them saying sweet treats. Take a look.

Each guest received a gumball machine as their "Thank you for coming."
There's was a large gum ball machine during the party for guest to enjoy.

Hope you had a wonderful birthday Miranda. Reyna thank you for letting us be a part of your daughter's special day.

Hope our Sweet Shop party has inspired you for your next event.
