black and white baby shower celebration

What’s black, white, and beautifully chic all over? This Modern Black & White Baby Shower-ish Celebration styled by the talented Christina Christian of Something Chic! I used “ish” in the title because this is actually a first birthday celebration for clothing line Sammy & Nat, brought to life in the form of a shower for Lexi and Chase. The serene vibe of this classic and mostly monochromatic affair feels like such a refreshing change of pace to me right now! (I’m currently designing themes for 5 and 11 year old girls myself.) Don’t get me wrong… you know I love buckets of color and all things covered in glitter around here, but today I’m feeling quite head-over-heels for this timeless & sophisticated look.

PARTY DETAILS to look out for:

  • Jumbo white balloons + fabulous polka dot tissue tassels dessert table backdrop
  • Pom Pom clothesline chair garland + mini clothespins on the place settings & favors
  • Heart graphic balloons, black satin ribbon bows, & birch paper straws with “baby” flags
  • Polka dot & onesie fondant toppers adorning cupcakes in striped baking cups

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Christina…

To celebrate baby clothing line Sammy & Nat’s {S&N} 1st birthday, we hosted a shower for Lexi & baby Chase. To keep all things {S&N} we stuck strictly to the line for inspiration. The all white pallet with a splash of black was soothing to work with. Allowing for the complimentary peeks of color to stand out in addition to the colors of the printables by Nellie Design and paper accessories from JenT by Design.

Sammy & Nat is a prima cotton baby clothing line which thrives on its values of being 100% authentic. For Lexi & baby Chase’s shower, we did exactly the same thing. Keeping mind that the small intimate gathering was perfect to highlight the uniqueness of the baby clothing. Starting with the sweets table. The tassel + balloon backdrop drew all eyes in that direction. Made by Stephanie Shives Studio, they added great height and creative detail. Then, the fondant toppers by 4 Kids Cakes on the cupcakes in stripe baking cups {found at Hoopla Events Etsy shop} were handmade with Lexi’s favorite filling inside. Other sweets included the Bonbonerie’s ‘Tuxedo Brownie’, white cherry brownies, vanilla meringues, and chocolate truffle filled pillow thank you boxes by JenT by Design.

Next, the memory game and drink station paper items {also by JenT by Design} fit with the overall feel of the shower. The table decor showcased a fun white on white framed 8×10 print, surrounded by simple white floral arrangements in square plastic jars {found at Celebration Lane} and coordinating milestone stickers for the onesies by Painting Paris Pink. The chair backs were garnished with pompom clothes line garland by Keisha Sibert.

While playing a laid back game, the guests were able to enjoy a variety of beverages from the drink station, followed by a simple salad and champagne lunch. While some sipped champagne from their birch paper straws {found at Celebration Lane} other enjoyed a yummy frappachino out of plastic cups with lid from the TomKat Studio + custom paper sleeves by JenT bu Design.

Each guest left with a personalized menu/keepsake card and crushed flavored rock candy in clear tubes. It was such a pleasure to style Sammy & Nat’s 1st birthday celebration.
