My husband and I had a little baby boy back in March. Earlier this year, our friends and family threw us a co-ed baby shower. I wanted to design the event, based on the theme 'Star Wars' and our friends and family were gracious enough to let me.
I purchased a balloon garland from All Event Prints. The 'Oh Baby' balloons were from Target. We didn't originally have everything in a tent, but then Los Angeles decided it was going to rain. We rented the tents, tables, and chairs from First Stop Party Rentals.
I made terrariums using moss, wine corks, and various Star Wars action figures and vehicles. Each one was paired with a design I illustrated (using Adam Grason brushes). Because of the rain, we added candles and chargers to all the centerpieces. It ended up warming up so we didn't need to light the candles.
I also created table activities for guests: 'Wishes for the Baby' and 'Advice for the New Parents' cards.
The guestbook was a poster I created of my different Star Wars illustrations.
The party favors were cookies designed and baked by Lavender's Blue Tea.
Desserts were catered by SNACK by Tiffany.
