This next feature was an event very close to our hearts: the baby shower of our planners’ sister, Mary! The event was held in a backyard of a private residence, and was themed after a county fair. The yard was filled with color, games, and lots of fun desserts, and thanks to Kathy Thomas Photography, we are so happy to share this day with you!
Our three carnival games were set up on the lawn outside. The first was a dart-throwing, balloon-popping game called “Ready to POP!”. The second was a Ring Toss, and the third was a Tin Can Alley.
The tables were set up on the patio, covered in pink and white striped linens from Over the Top Linens. The fun centerpieces were gorgeous florals from Flowers by Lesley with accents of raffle tickets. We loved the fun addition of Boylan bottled drinks and miniature pies from P is for Pie as favors at each place.
We absolutely loved the colorful dessert table, from the playful cake from Cut the Cake to the cupcake ferris wheel to the cotton candy from Sky Candy. Right next door, we set up a fun sweet tea & lemonade station with glass bottles to drink from. All the adorable paper goods and signage was from Dogwood Blossom Stationery.
The Southern buffet featuring classics such as baked beans, mac n cheese, and burnt ends was catered by 4 Rivers Smokehouse. Guests dropped their gifts at the gift table, enjoyed their food, and had a blast playing the carnival games. The background of colorful decorative pinwheels on the fence were provided by Dazzling Deco Orlando.
After eating, the party moved inside. Guests were able to enjoy the fun photo booth from Party Shots Orlando, with lots of themed props. The photo booth photos were added to a scrapbook, the perfect way for the future parents to remember their special day. The guests then gathered for games and gift opening! After a round of Baby Name Bingo, everyone watched as Mary opened her gifts. The future parents shared one last photo together before the fun and joyous day came to an end.
We were so happy to be a part of this special day, and so grateful to all the vendors that made it so delightful!
