Alice in Wonderland Baby Shower

Imagine this…as the guests arrive at the gateway they see a colorful sign that says “this way, that way”. Yes, it set the tone for an Alice in Wonderland inspired baby shower extravaganza.keyhole entrance baby showerThe theme was a bright and colorful Alice in Wonderland baby shower. The client wanted to have a high tea set up with tea cups and saucers but also include some elements of books, as the mother-to-be loves to read. Our fabulous client gave us free reign to create an awesome bespoke design in response to their baby shower brief…and so we did!signage alice in wonderlandAs soon as the guests arrives at the gateway they instantly knew what the theme was, because of the ‘this way, that way’ sign post. It was colorful and set the tone for a mad and slightly whacky day ahead.alice in wonderland signJust through the gateway guests were treated to a crazy assortment of Alice theme props hanging in the trees. Giant 1m tall Queen of Hearts playing cards were suspended in the trees up the drive way. Together with an oversized gold key and a red clock, it informed guests of a fun day ahead. party hire propsAdditional signage was practical and guided guests to the parking area. Once on foot, they were treated to an Alice spectacular!key hole entranceWe created a keyhole entrance for the guests to enter through, a little bit like going down the rabbit hole. We designed a large black back drop with an opening in the shape of a keyhole in the middle of it. We deliberately made the height of the key hole entrance just shorter than average head height. This meant that guests had to duck their heads down to get through the opening. This created a real sense of ‘making an entrance” and having the guests become part of the performance of the decorations. The guests loved it!paper flowers and giant cardLarge hand made paper roses filled the backdrop and added a splash of red color to the otherwise black background. Several flowers were pinned to the reverse side of the backdrop. This helped add some color to the party side and not just limited the color to the outside.baby shower themeTo play on the saying “you’re late, you’re late”, clocks were in abundance throughout the decorated baby shower space. Three clocks were hung in open backed, gold frames in front of the black backdrop. It was a fun way to add the element of ‘time’ to the Alice themed baby shower.mad hatters clock

Peacock Baby Shower Theme

We recently styled and organised a peacock themed baby shower for our very own event planner, Melina. She wanted to have a bit of fun with a colorful theme for her baby shower event.

The custom made chalk board sign gave guests all the information about Melina’s pregnancy. It was a fun and very popular sign. Our three-tier nappy cake was a highlight on our peacock dessert table with the theme coloured ribbon and peacock feathers.

Duck Themed Baby Shower

We had so much fun styling and setting up for Mehak’s duck themed baby shower. Mehak is expecting twins and wanted her baby shower to be full of vibrant colours. She had bought some beautiful duck soaps for her guest as little favors so we thought a duck themed baby shower theme would be a perfect fit. duck theme baby shower melbourne

Surprise Baby Shower

Blue and pink was the colour theme for this surprise baby shower for mother-to-be, Karla. Karla’s beautiful Mum and Aunt wanted to create a special surprise afternoon tea for Karla’s baby shower. The one criteria was to fill the room with balloons to create a great impact when their guests walked in, and so we did! We filled the living room with hundreds of pink and blue balloons as well as balloon columns and arches.welcome sign baby shower

Yellow Baby Shower

A Baby shower is a time to spoil the mother-to-be. It’s a time to celebrate life and family, and in fact, these days it’s not uncommon to have a styled  baby shower, especially if the parents-to-be have a large family or several close friends. The planning of a baby shower can be an enormous job as it involves a lot of planning.Sometimes the hardest job is to come up with a theme and execute it well. The theme for the baby shower serves as inspiration for decorations and games, invitations, favours and even the food. – See more at: http://myperfectevent.com.au/baby-shower/#sthash.b3Wm6iqN.dpuf

The theme for this Melbourne baby shower was an elegant high tea afternoon brunch. The color scheme was yellow, gray and white. It was the perfect way to style for a gender neutral baby shower, whilst adding a splash of color to the room by using yellow.

The baby shower styling was based on a typical high tea event. There were fine china teacups and saucers complete with a silver teapot. Delicious cupcakes, sponge cakes filled with cream and strawberries, not to mention the macaroons and yellow jelly slice filled the dining table.

The color scheme was incorporated on the mini milk bottles with yellow and white straws and tri colored labels on the milk bottles. The client’s existing yellow and orange floral canvas created a colorful and dynamic backdrop for the baby shower drinks station.

A mini lolly buffet was also setup for guests to help themselves during the afternoon. Yellow and white-stripped lolly bags were pre-filled for the guests to take home. The grand mothers enjoyed the lolly buffet just as much as the younger kids.

Both tulle and paper poms hung from the ceiling and also outdoors. This helped lead the guests from outdoors into the lounge and dining rooms where the baby shower was being held. The eye-catching feature of the baby shower styling was large, free standing, gold painted BABY letters. When the guests were at the dining table, the BABY letters were just outside the window, creating a fun backdrop.

The mother-to-be didn’t want typical baby shower games. So we organized for the guests to write up some keep-sake cards. One card asked the guests to write a wish for the new baby. Another card allowed the guests to guess when the baby would be born and if it would be a baby boy or a baby girl. The cards were great fun and when completed, they were pinned up on the wall and became a part of the theme and styling for the baby shower. The mother-to-be now has a collection of wonderful wishes to include in the baby’s album for years’ to come.
