Showering a Mama to Be with Minted
Back in September we had a client reach out to us about throwing her BFF a baby shower in NYC. As you know we love a good baby shower, but the best part was that Samantha, our client, worked for Minted. So we were able to partner with them throughout the whole planning process!
We worked with one of the shower guests to coordinate this event in the party room of their downtown apartment. The room was perfect for this intimate affair. Complete with a long dining table for guests to shit at, chat, and gush over the soon to be mom.
As our activity we wanted to do a fun spin on a onesie station. Did you know that Minted carries awesome fabrics you can purchase? We got a bunch of kid friendly prints and made them into patches that guests could stick onto their onesie. It was super easy! Just find a few shapes you like, trace them on the fabric, stick them to the adhesive & cut out.
There were a few kids in attendance so for them we printed out some of the fun coloring and activity sheets that are FREE on Minted’s website.
For food, we went with beautiful platters from Poppy’s Catering. We set them in the center of the dining table for guests to serve themselves buffet style. We also had menus printed to match the rest of the decor through Minted’s website so that all the guests would know exactly what we were serving.
The party room we were working in also had a kitchen with a large island so we set this up as the beverage & dessert station. Here we served a delicious agua fresca (that guests could top with prosecco if they liked), a simple naked cake (complete with a cute topper), and these gorgeous cookies by Biscotto Cookies that we had mad to resemble our invitations. As decor for the island we just added a few florals, styled some left over pieces of fabric, and then placed some cute cocktail napkins for guests to use throughout the party.
Finally, just to fill open spaces around the room we filled up some of our signature jumbo balloons and added these awesome gold circle garlands as the tails.
This baby shower is definitely going down as one of our favorites to date! The decor was amazing & super easy to order, thanks to Minted.
