A Sweet Shower for the Sweet Side!

Little Baby Georgia is just six small weeks old now and beyond adorable! Here are the highlights of the cutest shower that Katie Parra, Holly-Kate Foss and I threw her lovely mother, Kara! Kara is the owner of my favorite bakery, The Sweet Side and is a fab new mommy!

Her bicycle themed shower was held at Katie Parra's beautiful West Seattle home. Katie also took these gorgeous photos!

Kerri Effendi of Kerri Effendi Design created the perfect invitations! Thank you Kerri!

I had the best time putting this together with these two!! Thank you Katie & Holly-Kate! Oh, and Holly-Kate did the flower arrangements from Pike's Place. She is multi talented:)
So who do we ask to make dessert for a baker's shower?! Her shop associates of course! We couldn't not have a Sweet Side cake at Kara's shower! And yes, it was delish!!


Had to include a super cute pic little Ruby!! Always dresses in style wherever she goes!

Guests painted blocks for little Georgia to play with. Some guests like Laura Marchbanks excelled (showcased below). I hope she likes my all green block with my thumbprint on it, oops:)

Thank you Kara for letting us be a part of your super special day...as shown below, we had zero fun whatsoever putting this together;)

Cute Little Pumpkin!

Trick, Treat or a Baby Shower for little Olivia Gai?! How about all three! Throwing a baby shower for Clutch Associate Sarah Gai on Halloween was SO much fun! We chose an appropriate theme for the holiday and the event, "Cute Little Pumpkin", awwww! And used fun colors for the season and the gender, a soon to be little girl - purple, orange and black.

We incorporated orange and white mini pumpkins throughout the living room and dining room. And to the right in the below picture are festive bat/malt ball favors for the lovely ladies to take home with them.
What would Halloween be without yummy treats!? We did witches brew mimosas made with prosecco with a oh too perfect orange label and straight up OJ for the expecting mommies. Dishes like a cheesy strata and a chicken, spinach, mandarin orange salad were a perfect combo for a late brunch. Especially when you top it all off with a peanut butter cupcake for dessert!
As a take home for Sarah and a cute touch of decor we hung onesies on clothespins in each of the windows in white, purple and orange. It is a baby shower...we have to get a little corny right? The chair says 'Mummy To Be'...bwah haha!
A fun game that got everyone involved was to bring a picture of themselves as a child dressed up on Halloween and Sarah had to match them to everyone's name - super cute and a fun blast from the past!
Sarah and I!! No, we didn't plan our fall green outfits:) And below...eat your heart out Martha Stewart, I quilted it myself!
And because Sarah is the most prepared person with a thank you I had to showcase her shower gift. How cute is that stork? She drew and colored it herself....ah, love her!!

I'm so happy you had a great shower Sarah and I can't wait to meet Little Olivia!!
