Hi my name is Carmen and I am owner and lead creative stylist at Carmen Navarro Designs. I work with a lot of DIY moms when it comes to designing birthday parties. I absolutely love designing creative events that will forever be a lasting memory.

Vintage Baby Boy Shower

Wood, galvanized metal, burlap, hand painted alphabet blocks, handcrafted pennant banners, & Teddy bears were some of the amazing details from the Rustic vintage inspired shower for mama to be Ashley.
Mom wanted a beautiful shower to celebrate their last child. So that is exactly what we did.  Went to work and contacted my vendor friends to help me pull this look to together an awesome baby boy vintage shower.
Carmen Navarro Designs: Carmen was the creative mind behind the entire look of the shower. Styling every last detail to make it perfect, carefully pulling all the décor details together.  Handcrafted pennants banners that matched the denim blue color scheme were hung above each guest table. Vintage books, silver chargers, mason jars with a paper straw, hand painted baby blocks & toys, blue washed painted mason jars with babies breath flanked each tablescape.
The dessert table featured an over the top design with so many fun accents. From a diaper cake, wood blocks, suitcases, knitted blankets, textured pillows, books, marquee lights, lanterns, galvanized tubs, crates, and a blue truck. Gorgeous floral flanked each side of the table giving it some much needed balanced. & of course how can we forget those awesome teddy bears throughout the shower.
Rickety Swank: Provided the beautiful Thomasville vintage buffet, which we used as the dessert station. They also provided the rustic ladders with planks for the backdrop of the dessert table.
Irene’s Dessert Table: Created such an amazing cake with details that were too cute to eat. An intricate handmade fondant teddy bear flanked on the top of the cake along with some handcrafted edible baby blocks. Now I have seen many cake pops in my line of work, these pops have to be some of the cutest one I have in encountered. The little brown and blue teddys were such an amazing detail.
Cookies by Kerri: These royal icing cookies were insanely intricate. Teddy bears, rattles, onesies, & baby carriages matched perfectly to all the details of the shower. That washed denim look was amazing.
Tre Fiori Studio: Mason jars filled with babies breath brought life to each guest tablescape. Along with the 2 gorgeous floral pieces that flanked the dessert table, these were definitely showstoppers within themselves.
Leah Rae Photography: Captured the essence of this shower perfectly!
Words from the mom to be “My experience was very special, I felt like the decor and ambiance was breath taking, it made me feel so joyful. My guests were having such a wonderful time, they could not stop talking about how beautiful the decor was and how gorgeous everything looked! The cake was delicious and beautiful! The floral was gorgeous, every detail was perfect! My favorite detail was my dessert table! It was out of this world! It was exactly what I was visioning! The entire shower was breath taking and I truly felt blessed and happy.”

Fiesta First Birthday

“No time for a Siesta, Its Issac’s First Fiesta”
Celebrating a first birthday is always the best, but when your 1st birthday is a Fiesta theme, you know it is going to be a great time. Designing this dessert table was such a fun creative process, bringing in the Mexican Element, without being to cliche, was tough. But I accomplished it with fun elements such as the Fringe Crepe Paper Backdrop. And what is a Fiesta theme without the Mexican Candy and Pan Dulce. Issac in his little sombrero was the best. And I loved that his big sister was dressed for the occasion too. Mom Created and crafted so many fun elements for this party as well and threw such a fun party! And did someone say tacos! Yum.
Details to look for:
