This pretty pink and gold baby shower is filled with perfect details. It was submitted by Jessica of Live the Fancy Life and I am a big fan of her blog, her interior design style and pretty much all the parties she designs. Jessica’s parties are always beautiful and often have a touch of modern and this party is no exception. This event was a collaboration between Jessica and Cassie of Chubbymama Cupcakes.

The unique venue served as a perfect backdrop for this stylish event and you all know I am a huge fan of brunch entertaining. Don’t miss the bubbly bar!!!

I teamed up with Cassie of ChubbyMama Cupcakes on a pink and gold baby shower for her fabulous sister Mandi recently. I was hired to focus on event design-the decor, DIY elements, dessert table and champagne/sparkling water bar. Cassie focused on the food and gathering materials. This shower was a lot of fun and the decor was glamorous, but also very eclectic!

The event was hosted at a very cool urban loft-like space called The Engine Room in downtown Minneapolis with exposed brick, hardwood floors, random vintage furniture pieces and high open-beam ceilings. 


The mommy-to-be Mandi is a very stylish woman living in Philadelphia with her sweet husband and soon-to-arrive baby girl. She is manager of product development for Urban Outfitters Europe and has great taste so we really tried to emulate her style in this shower. 

Cassie came up with the theme “cue the confetti” with a color palette of pinks and golds. She is an amazing cake and cupcake baker/decorator, so the dessert table was a huge focal point. We worked with Shannon of Grace & Guy Paperie to come up with all of the custom “Cue the Confetti” printables. Two of the party signs are available for free download on Live the Fancy Life

The shower was at 10 a.m. so we did brunch including donut holes in cute gold cups, quiche, fresh fruit, a coffee bar, a champagne and sparkling water bar and lots of dessert. 

Shower favors were pink and white shimmery sixlets in modern clear packaging to carry the confetti look and feel throughout. We also had a fun photo booth with a confetti wall backdrop made from a simple 3 inch circle punch and vinyl sticker paper from Joann Fabrics. 

DIY projects include cupcake toppers, backdrops, homemade simple syrups for a beautiful champagne and sparkling water bar and more. The simple syrups were a big hit. We had peach basil and orange ginger. Both taste great in champagne or sparkling water. We brought in tons of gold and white pillows and placed them throughout the event.”

What a gorgeous cake! And um….I really want a couple jars of this homemade simple syrup.  I used these same letters from JoAnn Fabrics for Juliet’s Baby Love birthday party. You can spray paint them any color and use any letter combinations to tie into your party theme.
I love this idea of putting donut holes in little cups.


Fancy sixlets!
The pretty momma-to-be.
