Recently, I had the honor and pleasure of hosting a baby shower for my best friend, Jen. I can't say we go way back because we only met several years ago but our friendship feels like its been over a life time.
We've bonded over many things, but it was the same passion and outlook we shared on interior design that has made us close. Jen is also one of the main reasons I started this blog. She encourages me everyday to pursue all of my design goals and dreams! Over the past several years I have also gotten to know and love her family and friends which also helped to make this shower a success.
Jen has a designer's eye and I knew she would appreciate all the details that went into the decor of the shower. So, I of course couldn't do ordinary, I wanted extraordinary. This was my story board I started with to get my design juices flowing!
Being that the foyer would be first thing everyone saw, I wanted it to be over the top! My mind works in a weird way. In order for me to create, I must have structure to follow. So, I draw out most everything on Auto Cad first.
The end result! Tissue paper pom poms with crepe paper streamers is a cost effective way to add a little drama.
The cake! One of my favorite parts of the whole thing!
More of the sweet decor. Pun intended ;-)
The rest of the decor came easy because I used most everything I already had in my home. With a few extra additions and gorgeous flower arrangements by my sister the end result came out better than expected!
And last, but not least, the diaper cake! I cannot take any credit for this creation. Another best friend came up with this, beautifully detailed, design to fit in with the rest of the decor. Thanks again, Kat!
I wish all the love and happiness to Jen and Scott's sweet little girl. She is already SO spoiled!
