The Day We Celebrated A Mama-To-Be DIANI Girl

DIANI Living Baby Shower

It’s always fun to celebrate life changing experiences with your co-workers, and we especially enjoyed showering our VP of Web and  Mama-to-be, Whitney last summer.

The baby shower was safari themed and set up in our back garden with seating on low cushions under Indian print umbrellas to keep it casual and intimate. We served English finger sandwiches and scones and Enjoy cupcakes. Our favorite succulent arrangement designers, Dalla Vita helped us pull everything together with delicate napkin rings, juicy centerpieces, fun paint dipped votive party favors and cake decorations to top off our African wildlife ornament adorned cake.

 In the end, as often is the case, it was the tiny details that made welcoming Whitney’s little one into the world!

It’s All in the Details – A Baby Shower

It's All in the Details - A Baby Shower (1)

The moment right after I volunteered to host my assistant Victoria’s Baby Shower over the weekend, excitement started rushing headlong toward “I’ve never thrown a baby shower, what do I do!?!”  Her little boy, Dylan will be appearing at the beginning of July, and I wanted this baby shower to be something special.  All that had been discussed was keeping it in the vein of my native England, so, I knew cucumber finger sandwiches were a must, but what next?  I reached out to the incomparable Kim, of Toast, a local event planner, and she immediately eased my fears.  With some simple additions — cotton ball letters spelling out the name Dylan, a few teenie weenie white onesies flapping in the breeze (which were then gifted to Victoria), and some giant marshmallows — a kind of bare-foot elegance was brought to this, “White Garden Party Brunch”.  Add some Bellinis, cupcakes from Enjoy, quiche (from Renaud’s), homemade Peach Crumble (see yesterday’s post), and lots of chocolate, and this celebration in anticipation of Dylan’s arrival was a success!
