We all now know the phrase, but this love you to the moon baby shower gives it a whole new meaning! Jacqui at Deets & Things used a play on words to come up with the celestial theme. From a midnight blue color scheme to moon shaped desserts, Jacqui incorporated it into every detail. Even the nursery rhyme table numbers followed suit!
Jacqui says, After days of rain, it was a perfect sunny day for forty of Sandra’s closest friends and family to shower her with love in this classically themed fete.
We kept her invite pretty and subtle but gave a nod to the timeless moon theme by pairing it with a playful stargazing envelope. It was a classy affair with buttery blooms, lush greens and oak bentwood chairs filling her sister’s spacious home in Fullerton, California. Guests sipped on Blue(berry) Moon wine and bubbly while mingling and snapping photos with the mama-to-be.
When it came to the sweets, the details in the desserts by JenTeeBakes were impeccable and not to mention, so delicious! I carried the same beautiful tone of blue in the dessert tablecloth by hand dying napkins and crafting marbled moon place cards for each place setting. Also, tying in with the theme, each table number sign bore an adorable moon nursery rhyme. They were written beautifully in metallic gold and blue ombre.
To keep the event light and airy, I put a modern twist on the iconic vintage paper moon backdrop by building a charming fringe paper version. In the end, the shower turned out to be pretty and just a bit whimsical – a perfect analogy of the mama to be!
