Ooh La La! A Tres Chic Baby Shower

Our good friends, Kim & Reggie Prepetit, are expecting their first baby, and we couldn't be more excited for them! We had the honor of designing and creating the invitations for their Paris-inspired baby shower, which was the perfect theme to welcome their baby girl, who will be named Paris!
Fitting since that's where Kim was proposed to by Reggie (you may have seen their video featured in a Robbin's Brothers diamond commercial). Romantic in every way.

The beginning of their love story came full circle now :)
Kim envisioned an invitation with a vintage, ticket-to-Paris feel, so we used her ideas and our inspiration board as our springboard. We started with a shimmer cardstock sleeve printed with pink pinstripes, teal blue flourishes, and the announcement of the shower.

Recipients pull the "ticket" out of the sleeve, which invites them to the couples' shower. We continued the pink, teal, and brown theme with the vintage bird motif, postal markings, and a vintage Eiffel Tower stamp printed in the upper right hand corner.

We embellished the kraft envelope with Paris paper tape, vintage rubber stamps, and ink distressing.

 A small insert was also enclosed, informing guests of where the couple is registered.

 The invitation set the tone for the shower, held at the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica. Take a look at the tres chic details!

 This gorgeous cake was created by Sift by Kara. All we can say is "ooh la la!"

 We love the idea of displaying these cupcakes (by Buttercake Bakery) in a vintage trunk! Simple idea with great visual impact.

 Guests filled these chic little bags with candy from the candy bar.

 Gifts! Love how they used the sweet pink Eiffel Tower to hold the sign.

Party goers had a wonderful time mingling, eating, and listening to tunes spun by the DJ.

Delicious bites were served by Bugatta.

 What a wonderful shower this was, with the Paris theme reflected in every last detail...from drinks to favors. Something Blu Events did a fabulous job with the event styling!

Thank you so much Reggie & Kim for letting us be a part of your special day. We couldn't be more excited for you, and can't wait to meet Baby Paris!
