Baby Shower

A Tiki Themed Baby Shower

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Guess what that "Events" stands for at the end our company name?!? Thats right- it's for all the other fabulous soirees we plan throughout the year!  This past weekend Renny planned and hosted a baby shower along with a few of her girlfriends for one of their mom-to-be besties, Anne.  We love dreaming up fun and creative baby shower themes, but this one was a total no-brainer given Anne's love of the beach (she had wanted to get married there originally!) and her dream of one day opening a Tiki Bar in Chicago- we just knew we had to do a girly twist on an island Tiki theme! After kicking off the theme with some festive invites from Paperless Post, Renny then called on Blue Plate for the catering, Cheree Berry for adorable paper goods, Hall's for rentals and our own Jesse Deckard to design the florals as well construct the fabulous Tiki Bar from scratch!

Guests enjoyed the gorgeous weather outside while sipping cocktails adorned with paper flags that read "Sleep when the baby sleeps, Drink when the baby drinks!"  Guests then sat down for a tasty tiki themed meal at tables surrounded by grass skirts and topped with colorful glassware as well as fresh tropical fruit and vibrant island inspired florals.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="5893" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]

We hosted an amazing baby shower for one of our very own here at Bliss. The nautical themed baby shower took place under a cabana in Renny's backyard. All 20 guests sat beneath the navy and white gathered fabric tied with yellow chevron tie backs at a long feasting table dressed in heavy white hemstitch linens, a custom made yellow chevron runner, yellow chevron napkins, vintage basketweave chargers, etched glassware, heirloom mixed flatware and nautical coasters.
