Baby, It's Cold Outside-- a D.C. Baby Shower

When Hostess Alyssa reached out to me about helping with my friend, Terri's baby shower, I was honored to help! I loved being able to be a guest as well as help with the decor for this shower in downtown DC last Saturday on one of the coldest days of the year! The theme, "Baby It's Cold Outside" couldn't have fit better!

Using the invitation and her nursery as inspiration, I designed a suite of details in neutral shades with a pop of teal for Baby Girl Segura.

Cashion's Eat Place in NW DC was the beautiful venue for the shower, hosted by Terri's closest friends. The food was displayed on the bar, where guests enjoyed cocktails and mocktails and socialized with the Mommy-to-Be.

As a mommy-to-be myself, I was really impressed with the Pink Blossom mocktail! The grapefruit juice and vanilla bean (and other yumminess) served in a martini glass made me feel like I was celebrating with everyone else!

Guests also filled in "Wishes for Baby" cards for Little Girl Segura, who will be here in February.

The cards were slipped into this teal scrapbook that I previously filled with matching designed papers. At the end of the shower, Mommy Terri was able to take home this scrapbook keepsake, full of well wishes from her closest friends and family.

Guests then moved to several long tables where we enjoyed tasty desserts and coffee and watched Terri open her many gifts.

As favors, the hostesses treated the guests to bags of beautiful cookies designed by Stacy Winnick. These gorgeous cookies matched the theme with sparkly snowflakes and baby mittens. The hostesses strung the favor bags on twine and hung them with clothespins.

I designed a favor sign to add something else girly to the shower--

"Please take something Sweet that's full of Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice!"

What a wonderful (cold) afternoon showering a special friend before her baby girl arrives in a just a few weeks!
