Baby & Co. Shower

We had the pleasure of working with an amazing couple for the arrival of their little one. The couple didn't want to know the gender of their new bundle of joy so we used some neutral colors for the shower. We went with aqua and orange for our Baby & Co. theme.

Mom picked an awesome invitation from AshleyShellyCreative! They were super efficient and the service was amazing.

The parents to be have an amazing home in Mission Viejo so that was the location for the shower. We used the colors throughout! The event was catered by The Original Taco-Man. The food was outstanding. We had many guest talking about the food. Vickie and her team were quick on their feet and did a great job providing quality service and food!

Our table settings were created with the use of shower colors. Orange linen overlays with aqua and orange place settings. The matching plates, napkins and napkin rings were from Moskatels. They always have great solid and printed items for any occasion. For the centerpieces we used simple glass vases and added a pop of orange with the use of real oranges. Cut the slices thin and put a small amount of styrofoam in the center to hold the oranges in place. Add water and voila! Fresh hydrangeas were use as the main flower with additional orange floral accents.

Each guest received a caramel candy apple with chocolate drizzle made by our team as a thank you! The guest had sweets and more sweets!

Many of our sweet treats came from Oriental Trading Company including gumballs, candy sticks and mints. Our cute popcorn boxes, straws and gable boxes were aslo from our friends at Oriental Trading.  Some special made Baby &  Co. cookies created by Liezl of Love, Peace & Bento. The chevron patterned aqua and orange cake came from our friends at Torrance Bakery. It was so  good!

Michelle from Printabelle created all of our party printables for the occasion! She did an awesome job as usual to bring it all together.

We had a great time celebrating Baby Ausar and wish the family nothing but love and happiness for days to come!
