As featured on the The Little Big Company blog last week The Inspired Occasion had the pleasure of event managing a baby shower for a beautiful mum to be. The planning process started late last year when we meet with the client in her beautiful home. Already having decided to host the function at home we started with an initial consultation which involved the mother to be, her best friend and mother-in-law.
With approximately 30 guests we decided to utilise the beautiful alfresco area and added a white marque for the dessert and beverage station. The client wanted seating for her guests so we organised for tables, chairs, chair covers with sashes all complimenting the colour pallet chosen.
With the client not knowing what sex the baby was, she opted for a neutral plate of Lemon, Sage Green and White. Once we started the conversation rolling we decided to incorporate the bird cage as additional themeing.
Our style team started to sketch and design the backdrop for the table, we created a unique backdrop using a curtain type effect. We added green foliage into the birdcages to dress the cages and made over size pompoms and hung them in the out door area which gave added thumbing to the deck area.
We also designed the printables which included the menu board on the dessert station, toppers on the take home melting moments along with words of advise cards and other games signage on the games table. The Games table was also dressing in matching linen with bird cages again incorporated.
Our gift to the expectant mum was a nappy cake, this also doubles as a centre piece on our beverage station, and this is an item that will be incorporated in most of our baby shower functions. We also provided all glass wear which included champagne and soft drinks glasses along with our milk bottles and wax papered straws. The drink dispensers where filled with homemade lemonade and the guests enjoyed drinking out of the milk bottles.
All styling, event mangament logistics, baked items including cake was provided by The Inspired Occasion.
