We’re In Love {With baby Evan} ~ Sacramento Baby Shower

This October, 2Chic Events & Design was honored to plan a baby shower for one our very best friends, Jackie of Jacqueline Photography. The inspiration for the design of this baby shower came from the expectant Mommy's color scheme for Evan's room and a vintage-esque tricycle that was purchased for Baby Evan by her grandmother. With the help of the fabulous girls at Invitations Ink, we came up with a modern meets vintage theme that incorporated the tricycle throughout and we rolled with it. The girls at Invitations Ink started things off with the most adorable invitation, which the whole world fell in love with, and we went from there!

To share our source of inspiration with the guests, we used the tricycle as the main centerpiece and placed it right smack in the middle of the food table. Additional floral centerpieces were provided by Botanica Floral Designs. The handcrafted wooden letters that spelled Evan were the work of the Invitations Ink girls. We decided that the best placement for them would be on a vintage shutter that I had recently restored and embellished and it was the perfect fit!

The guests were treated to a vast assortment of finger foods {labeled accordingly, of course!}, white wine sangria, flavored Pellegrino, and finally, the most delicious cake known to man which was also provided by Sweet Cakes by Rebecca. While munching away, guest participated in a baby mad libs game, which had everyone cracking up, followed by a custom made version of Baby Bingo.

Following the games, guest were invited to take a piece of this lovely shower home with them in the form of desserts and candies from the dessert bar, which consisted of items made by friends of Jackie's along with some fabulous tricycle cookies from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca! We used paper bags with the tricycle logo on them for guests to fill. We also had a photo booth at the ready and guests also took home Evan Themed strips of fun and funny photos!

And….He's HERE!!!

Well, little Evan couldn't wait to get here and arrived 5 weeks early! Scott and Jackie welcomed their beautiful little baby boy into the world on 12-11-10 {cool date, right?!}. Since he decided to come early, the little guy had to spend some time in the hospital while his lungs finished developing. We are happy to report that on 12.19, Evan came home with mom and dad.

I love this little man so much already! My husband and I were lucky enough to visit Evan in the hospital and he is beyond precious with the whitest blond hair I've ever seen! Congratulations again to our best friends,  Jackie and Scott!
