Twinkle Twinkle Little Star – Baby Shower

Project Details

I'm an event designer and stylist based in Los Angeles, and I did this shower for one of my dearest friends who lives in Indiana. Distance hasn't stopped our friendship of over 11 years, and nothing was stopping me from getting to honor her and baby-to-be with a special baby shower. There were also four other lovely hostesses for this shower, who helped me bring the vision to life!

The nursery rhyme "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" was the inspiration point for Sarah's shower, and since the baby's sex is remaining a surprise until the delivery the Rosy-Peach and Minty-Blue accent colors were chosen to reflect both sexes and were balanced out with whites, golds and kraft paper.

The mama-to-be is all sorts of sparkle and shine, and her baby's nursery is a vintage baby wonderland - so the shower blended both of these elements throughout the decor and setting. A beverage station was set-up on a vintage console with star and circle garlands hanging overhead. Caprese Stacks and Watermelon Feta Basil were bites set-up on cocktail tables – along with hand fans and parasols to keep the guests cool on a Midwest summer day. And how cute is the mama-to-be? She’s seven-months along and may be the cutest pregnant mama I’ve ever seen!

There was an Activity Table for guests to participate in some baby games at their leisure. There was a Baby Wishes card for guests to fill-in-the-blanks, as well as a Little Bump game. The Little Bump game was arranged in individual packets, guests could make their guess and tie their star-tassled twine to the old vintage garden ladder.

Lunch prepared by talented Indianapolis Chef and Owner of DIY Gourment, Sarah Kleinknecht. A buffet with fresh summer salads, fruit and carved turkey baguettes was served indoors. SweeTies Gourmet Treatsmade the most beautiful and equally delicious Red Velvet Cake (mama-to-be’s favorite), which was adorned with gold glitter star toppers. The floral centerpieces were created by Bokay and were the perfect finishing touch for the tables, set with gold flatware and vintage china plates. All the guests went home with gorgeous and scrumptious French Macarons, in Salted Caramel and Madagascar Vanilla – the perfect sweet ending to a celebration for a sweet friend.

Love the vintage touch, especially that typewriter. I bet our kids would live not knowing how to use it!

Everything's very pretty! I love the lawn and I can see that the house is beautiful from the inside, too, just by looking at the white shelves. And I like the parasol touch.
