Couples Baby Shower Theme: Bebe Bistro for the Future Foodie

Last weekend I co-hostessed a Couples Baby Shower at my friend Maria’s home. First of all, her home is simply gorgeous. I started taking pictures of the party details and ended up taking some pictures of her elegant decor. I really love her contemporary, eclectic style. Her home is filled with art and photographs and gorgeous books and it just feels so sophisticated and chic yet homey and authentically lived in at the same time. Maria was my first girlfriend to have a baby, so I basically use her as a mommy model. She has three gorgeous, stylish, organically-fed children and she still makes time to take care of herself. I have known her for almost 7 years and she has not aged a day and looks better and better each year!

The baby shower was for our mutual friend Missy (see more on our friendship here in Pageant Weekend Approaches), who has a food blog called The Perfect Bite! So we decided to use that as the inspiration for the theme.

PARTY DETAILS:

 

The caterer (Carey Weir of Salt Catering) actually knew of Missy from reading her blog before so she generously came up with a custom menu that would suit this extra-special mommy-to-be. The entire menu was baby-themed gourmet appetizers! (Yum!)

 

 

Maria whipped up some gourmet homemade baby food from a cook book she had for a baby-food tasting. They looked so cute and were a great conversation starter (even if most people weren’t brave enough to try them!)

A few shots of Maria’s chic design style:

 

Maria spray-painted the Mason jars and Wine bottles with black spray paint to make these amazing centerpieces for the flowers!

To make this banner for the mantel I got a pack of plain white bibs from Buy Buy Baby and strung them on a simple black ribbon.

The cake is from Aunt Mary’s in North Kansas City and they made it look like a jar of gourmet baby food. The cookies are silver spoons with a monogram and a ribbon.

Maria had custom labels printed  for these wine bottles for the guests to take home as a reminder of the fun celebration!

Hard to imagine my life in KC over the past 7 years without these two gorgeous, amazing role models. So happy we get to go through this crazy mommyhood ride together!

Can’t wait for this pretty mommy to have her baby!!!
