Real Events: Staged Baby Shower {Part I}

Last week, I blogged about the fabulously cute soaps from Soapsational Creations, and in that post, I dropped a little teaser that we would feature the events from which the soaps were featured.  Today's the day!

Back in November, Jamie and I spent an entire afternoon making up two staged events at my home - we had some ideas we'd been itching to try out, and decided to make a day of it.  Lisa of Lisa Levine Photography graciously offered up her time to photograph what we created.  The first event was a baby shower.

We decided to focus on rubber ducks and bubbles and featured it in colors of white, yellow and orange.

Center stage was my big bay window, in which we blew up pearlized balloons to act as "bubbles" and put the sweet little soaps that Laurie of Soapsational Creations sent to us.

We bought the white favor bags on clearance at Michael's and then bought yellow buttons to secure the bags: we just threaded some ribbon through the buttons and the holes in the bags.  We printed the tag to say "cute as a button" and voila - super sweet and simple favor bags.

We made a wrapping paper runner, which we totally love, by taking a piece of paper and gluing yellow grosgrain ribbon to the edges.  Jamie donated her fab yellow plates for a pop of color.

We even went for broke by creating menus for the table: these were super simple.  We downloaded the image and created a delicious sounding brunch menu.

We hung white paper lanterns from the top of the window by suspending them from yellow ribbon (the same ribbon as on the runner) and tying thicker pieces of ribbon to the bottom, for another little burst of bright colors.

Hopefully you can steal some of these ideas for your next party! Stay tuned for part II of the shower - bites, bubbly and sweets. Yummy.

See you swoon,
