If you ♥ big city life, then get ready to fall head over heels for this {super creative and stylish} “ABC NYC Baby Shower“! With the help of Laura Ritchie and her mom, Amanda of Ashley Baber Weddings planned this fabulous baby shower for her sister, Tyler. Mom-to-be happens to work in the fashion industry in New York and had requested a “non-traditional, non-pastel” celebration, which is exactly what her loved ones delivered! They even managed to bring in a touch of fiesta, which was very fitting since the shower was held on Cinco de Mayo. ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • AMAZING Cityscape diaper cake with a baby wipe “water tower”
  • “I Heart Cereal” Buffet with “Captain Colin Crunch” + “Coo-coo for Colin” cupcakes
  • Chinatown Coffee station with NYC napkins
  • Colorful paper lanterns, fringed streamers + mexican sodas
  • Madison Avenue Mimosas and Statue of Liberty green beans

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Amanda

My sister, Tyler, who works in the fashion industry in New York, requested a non-traditional, non-pastel, baby shower in early May. Our mother, Tyler’s best friend Laura Ritchie (of Events in the City) and I were charged with coming up with ideas surrounding a ABC, NYC, bright/bold colored theme baby shower.

When guests arrived, they were greeted with decor lining the walk and door.  A large crepe paper backdrop hung in the foyer with a welcome sangria.  The shower was also on Cinco de Mayo, so we had to have a touch of fiesta!  Flowers were provided by Laura’s aunt, who works with Holly Heider Chapple.  Guests were also asked to sign the vintage baby book, which I found from Craft Party.

Lunch was served buffet-style, with several New York themed dishes.  Guests were also offered mimosas and mexican sodas.  Bright colored lanterns and onsies served as decor inside.

Tyler has been craving all of her childhood favorite cereals during the pregnancy.  I made three flavors of cupcakes and decorated the buffet with an “I Heart Cereal” sign, maps of NYC napkins and a “Chinatown Coffee” station.  The three flavors of cupcakes were “Captain Colin Crunch” made with Peanut Butter Captain Crunch, “Coo-coo for Colin” made with Cocoa Puffs and “Yabba Dabba Delicious” made with Fruity Pebbles!

Guests took a quiz about how well they know Tyler and helped her open her gifts.  The favors as they left were smiley face cookies from Eat’n Park, a favorite when our family lived in Pittsburgh, PA :)
