Once Upon a Time...

What do you get when you mix storybooks, adorable baby clothes, good friends, and a sweet mom-to-be? A happily-ever-after baby shower, that is!

We were honored to provide some of the event details for a baby shower for my good friends, Alli and Matt.
It was a storybook themed shower planned by Alli's lovely and creative stepmom, Suzan.
The colors were light blue and chocolate, and everything from the table linens, to the favors, to the lanterns hanging in the trees coordinated beautifully. She thought of every little detail, and the guests had a wonderful time. You did a beautiful job Suzan!

The shower was held outdoors, so a cute "Once Upon a Time" sign greeted guests as they arrived.

Pretty chocolate and blue linens graced the tables. Suzan printed a variety of children's book covers and strung them with clothespins throughout the yard...what an adorable touch!

As you rounded the next corner, guests came to a table holding the Wishing Tree.

The Wishing Tree is like a modified guest book; instead of signing a book, guests write a note of advice or well-wishes for the parents-to-be. The cards can then be compiled into an album or book for the parents to look at and remember later.

We created the cards for the Wishing Tree, as well as the sign showing guests what to do.


The sign reads, "Write a note of well wishes for the parents-to-be, and hang it on the Wishing Tree."

We created the signage for the appetizers, which included caprese skewers, chips and guacamole, fresh fruit salsa with cinnamon chips, and veggies with Ranch.



The desserts sweetly reflected the blue and chocolate theme as well.
Here is the gorgeous cake, whose design is based on two of the mom-to-be's favorite childhood books, The Little Prince and Guess How Much I Love You.

The candy bar was filled with blue and chocolate candies, and we created the dessert tags to coordinate.

This storybook shower was a perfect way to welcome the new "Little Prince" into the world!

Congratulations Alli and Matt!
Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!
