Ultra Chic Baby Shower

After all the talk about my sister in law's baby shower inspiration I can finally show you how all the cute ideas The Hidden Garden provided for the big day! It was a huge hit... everyone loved all the elements from the color pallettes, flower choices, to little monkey touches. The candy buffet and dessert table could not have been more popular, thanks to the amazing Pastry Chef at Four Seasons Westlake for making such delicious treats!

Our guests dined in the CHLI Dining Room at The Four Seasons Westlake. It is such a bright and open space and perfect setting for a luncheon. The Robin's Egg geometric linens (thanks to La Tavola) and white chivare chairs provided a very modern element to the decor. Rather than doing the "cutesy" baby theme we were hoping to provide a little more of a chic appeal with touches of "cute"

Our little "monkey" was an accent piece throughout the cute is he!?
Our "mommy to be" wrote each of the guests a little note expressing how excited she is for Baby Eric to arrive and how thankful she is for everyone who attended the shower to celebrate with her. A few baby photos of the Mommy & Daddy when they were kids were our extra special touch...and got a few laughs!

The dessert table, decked out with jars of gummies, yogurt pretzels, chocolates, flavored taffy and trays of delicious desserts provided by The Four Season's Westlake. We took on a little do it yourself project (a la Amy Atlas) for the dessert table. I scoured her site for thanks Amy!! i hope we did you justice! I think i am missing her adorable back drops though? :)

Each of the guests were invited to write the Mommy to Be a "wish" for her new adventure in life. The cute blue note papers we hand stamped with white blossoms for an extra sweet touch. Once the wishes were made, each tag was hung on the wishing tree. It was fun to read each guests "wish". So adorable, and so easy to do yourself!

we are ready for the next baby shower project...who's game?
