EXTRA EXTRA: Read all about this Baby Shower

Things have been slow on the blog as I am busy with several parties, a bridal show and working on the new website……all good things so I’m not complaining.  It does mean however, that something has to take a back seat and in this case, it’s my blog.  But today I had to bring you this baby shower worth writing about.  I love the newsprint, vintage theme and how nicely it was carried throughout, the dessert table, and, of course,  the various shades of grey that were used.  You know I love grey!

This shower was thrown for the co-owner of Layla Grayce, which is filled with beautiful items for your home, great gifts, and lots more!  If you’re looking for something unique, be sure to check them out.  Here are some pics from the shower.  Styled by Sara Westbrook Designs, you’ll find lots of inspiration if you’re looking to throw a baby shower, whether it’s a boy or girl!!

There are lots more pics on their blog! So be sure to check them out!

Simply Elegant: A Baby Shower

Any baby shower that starts out with these super-chic and elegant invites would have to be a.ma.zing…..
So of course, it came as no surprise when I saw the end result!

Yesterday, I quickly posted to my Facebook page an amazing baby shower that was designed and styled by my childhood friend Claude of Petite-Fete.  I had to do it justice, and give it a little more coverage.  Every detail of this baby shower is just superb!  Look at these pics and then head over to her site to see more!!

The shower was held at the simple but elegant  iCi Restaurant in Brooklyn, NY.  The whole baby shower is a reflection of understated elegance.   More is not always better and these pics are proof of that.

just looking at these make me hungry!
love the photo booth!
the proud parents-to-be…..

All the paper, invitations, and event styling was done by Petite-Fete.  The photographs are all courtesy of   beIMAGED who captured the event.  Love their style of photography.

Oh and these caught my eyes too! HOT!

any photographer who caught these, has got a good eye!
