One of our favorite girls from Simply Modern Weddings, Christina Wright, welcomed a new baby boy to her family, and we are so excited to share her fabulous rock and roll baby shower today! I was able to attend this shower and not only was it cute but it was so much fun! Both Christina and her husband, James, love all different genres of music so the musical theme seemed like a no brainer! I love how the adorable decor was carried throughout the entire shower from the yummy desserts by Sweet and Saucy to the colorful record and headphone stationery. And how fun are those guitar pick cookies with his “J5” nickname (short for James the fifth)?! Carissa from JL Designs came up with a “make your own burger” station for the food that was a huge hit and so easy to do! Courtney Toney from Joyful Joyful Designs shared with us some of the inspiration –
For Christina’s baby shower, inspiration came pretty easily. We knew that, no matter what decor scheme we went with, we would need to incorporate turquoise because that is Christina’s color. From her business branding to the walls in the baby’s nursery, everything is painted in turquoise : ) We threw in yellow to pop against the turquoise and incorporated chevron stripes and hip music graphics.
Lori of Paper & Thread did an amazing job with the invitations and paper goods. She and her team even created a concert-style poster of a bear with a one-man band. It was so cute! Carissa of JL Designs used bright, springy yellow blooms in clean modern white vases, some adorned with ric rac. We also brought some musical items, such as headphones, harmonicas and tamborines into the decor. I spray painted old records to use for banners and also spray painted some guitar picks to toss around.
We had guests fill out cards with their wishes for the little guy- a sweet keepsake for Christina. We played name that tune- which was super fun! We split all of the guests into two teams and then had them guess the title and artist of snippets of songs that we played. All of the songs had the word “baby” in the title. Keeping with the music theme, guests took home a CD of modern lullabies, which Lori of Paper & Thread put into the most adorable stitched CD sleeves.
It was fun but simple and such a sweet time of celebrating J5’s arrival- and just in time! He made his appearance early; only a few days after the shower!
