Cristina, a jet-setting friend of mine recently asked me to help her design her sister Mia's baby shower. I jumped on the chance and was extremely delighted to be able to welcome the little bundle of joy and celebrate his sweet mommy. We had about a week to completely prepare since Cristina splits her time between SF and Vancouver. They had a vision of bears, blue, green, yellow, stripes, dots, and a sweet preppy look. To get the ball rolling I came up with a "Bubbles & Bow ties" concept for little "Coco Bear"( a sweet nickname they gave the little one).
I baked some cupcakes and made little ribbon "flaggies" as toppers. To tie everything together I created a logo and used it for the bubble bottles and other details. Instead of "party hats" we're giving each guest a bow tie to adorn themselves with. What better way to get them into the spirit? For the flowers, I opted to do something a little different and veered away from stuffy and traditional. This is a fun and light affair and I wanted to play up the "bubbles" by incorporating them into the arrangement. I stacked bubble vases and used beautiful large fresh mums.
