Balloons, Books, & Babies Baby Shower

Balloons, books, and babies baby shower

A few weeks ago we held a baby shower for one my assisting contributors fashion illustrator, Victoria and her new baby, Anthem. Victoria was a big help to me over the holidays with my shop and 2 window displays I did for the holidays and I wanted to throw her a shower that reflected her fun and easy going personality. I asked her if she had any input and she mentioned that she thought a children’s book themed party could be fun, which is something I’ve wanted to try out so we started there. And because I’m somewhat obsessed with balloons these days, I added in a big helping of those too and turned it into a Balloons, Books, and Babies baby shower. No tie between the three other than the letter B and lots of charisma and being photogenic. I turned to my friends at Zurchers, a local and online party store, for the balloons and Chronicle Books, to make it happen and I love how it turned out AND we had a ball–double whammy!

Here’s the new mommy. Isn’t she adorable?!

I got the main inspiration from this image that was one of the very first photos I ever put on my blog. I even toyed with the idea of doing it as a theme for our wedding 5 years ago, but realized that flowers might be a better way to go for us. After trying to figure out how to make it work, we decided to take it outside and turn it into a picnic as we enjoyed some early spring days (sorry East Coasters!).

After we all cleaned up we just had to get our own shots to feel like Miss Dior. You know how it is. Here’s Hillary:Balloons and books baby shower
