We had the honor of designing the dessert and beverage stations for this baby shower. The mommy-to-be was a previous bride of our's and we are always thrilled to have fabulous, repeat clients. This was a really fun Jack & Jill (co-ed) baby shower with a picnic meets Americana theme. We are seeing clients move away from the over saturated baby theme and we love sneaking in little details here and there. The daddy-to-be calls the mommy-to-be his "button" so we tied in some button details as well. We hand crafted all the decor elements and made flavor tags out of paper medallions. The props are from our inventory and we got to debut our new flower cart piece which of course, we use for candy stations! We love and use Porch Pies any chance we get and each guest went home with one of their delicious, buttermilk pies. I also found this adorable "bun in the oven" favor box from Dry White Toast on etsy. They are personalized specifically for your event. We ordered little cutie cakes from Half Baked Co. to go in each oven.
We called upon Vanilla Bake Shop to bring our dessert dreams to life and of course, they did an amazing job as always. Southern Banana Pudding shots were a huge hit and they added edible button details to the Vanilla Bean and Chocolate mini cupcakes. We also used Raspberry Jamble and Peanut Butter bars and as requested, Red Velvet Cake Pops dipped in red sanding sugar. Mommy and Daddy went home with a mason jar full of their favorite candy.
For the beverage station we decorated mason jars that could be filled with iced tea or strawberry lemonade and displayed them on an old fashioned pie rack. The guests were welcome to take a mason jar home with them. Classic Coca Cola (dad's favorite), baby diaper decorated water bottles, beer, wine and belini's were also available.
This theme and color palette could easily be used for birthday parties, bridal showers and more. We had a lot of fun putting this together. I cannot wait for the little one's first birthday!
