Today’s Real Party features a gorgeous take on the popular “Sugar and Spice” baby shower theme.

This chic chocolate & pink celebration was coordinated by event planner & shower hostess Kelly Balfour of Eventology Weddings and includes tons of super cute & inspiring details – like a homemade cookie buffet + carafes of chocolate, strawberry, & regular milk, adorable pink & brown ribbon accents on everything from the florals to the napkins, and seriously one of the cutest baby shower cakes I’ve ever seen!

It was a chocolate brown and strawberry pink kind of day, from the invitations right down to the table linens and fancy chairs.

Every detail was expertly attended to – from the paper lanterns hanging above, to a custom hand-made guestbook, right down to personalized place cards at each seat.

The florals were a mix of white hydrangeas and orchids that evoked a clean and natural feel. The vases were adorned with coordinating accents using ribbon and a button.

The linens were a soft baby-pink organza and the napkins were a rich bengaline chocolate fabric. Each was tied with a pink and brown coordinating ribbon.

The adorable cake was almost too cute to cut into! In honor of the mom-to-be’s favorite flavors and in an effort to coordinate with the shower colors, the top layer of the cake was strawberry and the bottom layer chocolate. DELICIOUS!

But the pièce de résistance was most definitely the cookie-buffet!

This table-spread included many varieties of homemade cookies and each guest was invited to pack a cute little brown bag full of cookies to take home as favors.

There was even an assortment of chocolate, strawberry, and regular milk to accompany the adorable cookies for guests who might want to nibble on the goodies throughout the shower.
