Usually during this time of the year it’s wedding season, but for me it’s baby season!! Yup, another one of my Best Friends is pregnant so of course I offered to throw her a baby shower too. This will be her second baby and this time it is a boy, so instead of just doing a traditional “sprinkle” for the second one, I decided to do a full baby shower. Besides, I think it’s only fair to celebrate all of your babies equally anyway, right? 😉
The baby shower was held at this cute French restaurant in Pasadena called Café Bizou. It also happens to be my Bestie’s favorite restaurant, so it was perfect!
I did a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star theme with a navy, blue, white & gold color scheme. I custom designed and made the invitations, menus, place cards, games, signs & favors. I also had a cute little book for guests to sign and leave sweet messages for the new baby boy, that his parents can read to him every time they read the book.
There were four round tables, so I did two different centerpieces. One was a cute bow tie & shoe set displayed in our gold rimmed glass boxes and flowers. The other one was a cute stuffed animal next to our petit ceramic rocking horse planter sitting on top of our gold dot bowl and flowers. Also a set of gold & white star balloons were at each table as well and really completed the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star theme perfectly!
I decided to do some of the same games I did for my other Best Friend since they were a lot of fun, but unfortunately we ran out of time and didn’t get a chance to do the play-doh baby game. The baby face game was a blast though because a lot of the guests were really stumped by who was who and was especially confused with some of the celebrities on the list. Also, it’s so much fun to see baby photos of the parents to be & their families.
We also had a beautiful candy bar set up for all the guests to enjoy. Our “it’s a boy” gold mylar balloons were super cute as the center of it all and to stick with the color scheme, I used white & gold candies as well as chocolates. The one treat that I constantly got comments about were the brookies, which is a hybrid of a cookie and a brownie. They are super delicious and everyone is now obsessed. I got them from a small bakery in Duarte called Sweet Nothings.
Congratulations to the second time parents again and we can’t wait to meet your sweet little boy! It was such a gorgeous baby shower and I couldn’t have done it without my amazing husband of course, we make a great team! Also thanks to the awesome staff at Café Bizou for being so wonderful.
