For these expecting parents, who wed in the Caribbean, a tropical Caribbean island baby shower was the only way to go! They wanted to celebrate their baby on the way with the same fervor and as much fun as their wedding day. So, they recruited a fabulous team of vendors and a killer DJ. Considering Donna, the mama to-be, owns and operates Mademoiselle D – a company that creates beautiful custom invites and laser cut decor – she had plenty of talented friends willing to bring her dream shower to life! It doesn’t get much more perfect than this…
Seven years ago, Donna and Adler celebrated their marriage in the Caribbean in beautiful Jamaica. When they found out that they were having a boy, they decided to name him Cameron. Therefore, their baby shower was made to recreate their wedding theme by calling it “Cameron’s Island.” They wanted to incorporate many elements typical of the West Indies, such as Jamaican beer, Haitian food, etc. This way, their family and friends could relive the joy of their union!
As the owner of Mademoiselle D, Donna created all the signage for the day from table numbers to cake toppers. Her industry friends also helped her plan her Tropical Baby shower; Victoria from Le Bébé Bohème took care of the decor. She played with material like wood and rattan. She also made an impressive gold arch that was placed on top of the honor table and the parents to be’s chairs.
Nancy from Les Services Rose Bonbon used tropical flowers, greenery and pineapple to make her centerpieces . Our favorite was the tall centerpiece on the family table! All the sweets also had tropical flavors. Bayard Gâteaux used coconut flakes and edible tropical paper to decorate the passion fruit cakes and Sucre Brun Sweets made rum flavored desserts such as tropical verrines and pavlovas topped with beautiful edible flowers.
Food was made by Caribbean caterer Casserole Kréole; amazing jerk chicken skewers, tropical paella, creole tapas such as cod fish, pork griot, rice and beans, and an exotic fruit table with stunning carved fruit art. DJ Godsta set the tone all evening and by the end of the night guests were dancing to popular hits. Even the children had a blast! And capturing it all, was the talented La Chérie photography.
