Baby Shower’s are a time to celebrate life and love! Whether it’s your first or third child I think every pregnancy is a miracle and deserves to be celebrated. Whether you decide to go big and host a huge party or not, the details are what’s most important and what you will remember years down the road.
Our theme was “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and we chose it because it was Max’s favorite song at the time. I ordered the bulk of the themed decorations from online several months in advance – which was great because right now, in my 8th month of pregnancy, I don’t have the energy or patience to search for decorations like previously did. 🙂 (There’s your first tip!)
For my first baby shower my two sisters in law Sylvie and Christine did everything and it was so nice to just be pampered! This time Sylvie was not in Lebanon so it was all up to Christine, and I. We started brainstorming and preparing the setup, menu, and gathering decorations several weeks in advance. I had to visit more than 6 stores to find exactly what I was looking for, but it was all worth it!
There were some details that I must get into as they made all the difference in the world. The backdrop and buffet table were going to the be the main attraction of the party and the center point for all photographs taken so it had to be perfect. We wanted a really light and elegant feel and found tons of inspiration on Pinterest! I searched and searched on Instagram for bakers that could offer sweets within our style and theme. I got so lucky finding Raya of Choc en Bouche. She has the most beautiful designs and the most delicate and meticulous work. I knew I had to contact her immediately and I was so impressed. It was so easy to work with her and everything turned out perfect. I mean take a look at the detailed work on this macaron! Besides the incredible detail they were light, fluffy, and the filling tasted like cake batter!! You can visit their website at chocenbouche.com or call at +961 78-813444
My dress is by the super fabulous Bambu Maternity, their clothing line is made of extremely soft and stretchy bamboo cotton. Their range works during pregnancy and beyond (great nursing option!). They offer free worldwide shipping too!
