Drivers, Start your Engines! “Racing By” Baby Shower

“Racing By” Drive-Through Baby Shower by EXTRAordinary Things by Arielle | IG: extraordinarybyarielle

In the current pandemic, event planners and hosts have to get creative with their party preparations. One trend that has sped into the spotlight is drive-by showers, where guests drive by the host’s home to drop off gifts and pick up favors quickly. It’s all the same fun and charisma of a typical shower, with no close contact!

Arielle, an event stylist, fully embraced this concept and gave one couple the ultimate racing-themed baby shower to celebrate the upcoming birth of their little one! The décor was equal parts cute, creative, and conscious of everyone’s safety.

A huge welcome banner (I mean, huge) and archway welcomes the guests as they roll up to the starting line of the shower. Once they get the green light, guests come to the first Pit Stop – the Gift Compound. They can drop off their gifts with minimal contact but still see the smiling faces of the Mom and Dad of the Hour. Super cute and a perfect concept for the theme!

After the next leg of the race, guests come to the second Pit Stop – the Refueling Station! At this stop, guests receive a boxed lunch and delicious cupcake to thank them for attending. And all of it is packaged to-go in checkered-flag boxes that drive the racing theme home.

In between the two pit stops is the focal point of the whole event – the Finish Line. A “roadway” draws your eye up to the top of the driveway, transformed into a winner’s circle for the growing family. It’s complete with checkered flag patterns galore, a balloon tower stoplight, thrones for Mom and Dad, and an adorable little hot rod for their two little ones. And let’s not forget the outfit that Mama is wearing! She looks fantastic rocking that racing suit.

Take a victory lap, Arielle; this drive-by racing baby shower brings all race fans to their feet!

100th Day Oink Oink Piggy Theme Celebration

100th Day Oink Oink Piggy Theme Celebration by Ms. Laine Events

There are lots of milestones to celebrate as a baby grows up. The six-months-old mark, first solid foods, first steps, first teeth…but have you ever considered throwing a 100 Days Old celebration? After seeing this one, decorated by Ms. Laine Events, you will want to!

The theme for this party is little piglets – an adorable choice for a newborn baby – and oh, did Ms. Laine bring the piggies! The custom graphic saying “Brayden is 100 days old” features the cutest little pig you ever did see, and makes the perfect focal point for the room. The chevron design on the graphic is modern yet cute enough to fit right in with the theme, and the light blue color scheme makes a stunning contrast against the sweet, pink piglets.

One of the biggest head-turners is the mylar balloons shaped like pigs. How adorable are they? Besides being the most lovable balloons outside of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the pig balloons make excellent fillers to fluff and fill any empty space throughout the room. The guests are guaranteed to coo over them almost as much as the baby!

Guests were directed to the room at the venue with a clever easel, sporting a sign that has the same cute piggy from the custom graphic inside. More pig balloons surrounded the easel, grabbing guests’ attention and giving an adorable sneak preview of the décor in the party space! As a final touch, balloons of light blue and pig pink add some flair and tie the whole display together.

One of the things I love the most about the decorations is the little touches of rustic charm throughout the space. Galvanized milk cans are filled with faux wildflowers and greenery, with just a bit of faux hay to elevate the country charisma. It’s not overdone, though! There’s just enough to add to the farmhouse atmosphere without detracting from the central theme of the party.

The treats and sweets for the party are worth celebrating themselves. Custard pies with “pigs on a stick” decorations are sure to make guests squeal with delight. And the fluffy buttercream icing on the cupcakes is tempting enough for anyone to burrow their nose in!

Adorable “piggy pops,” pigs on a stick, are ready to go for guests to enjoy at the party or on their way out the door. If you look closely, you can see that each piggy pop has a different expression on its face. Some even dressed for the occasion and have a party hat! As if things couldn’t get any cuter, little pig-shaped donuts hang on an upscale pegboard to be plucked from their perches as the guests leave. These little pigs also have different expressions on their faces, the same as the piggy pops. A tiny detail that brings all the elements together!

All in all, baby’s barnyard bash is a precious, yet simple theme to make your 100-days-old party (or any age, for that matter!) a huge success. All thanks to the inspiration from Ms. Lain’s Events!

Words from the planner: Oink Oink again!! Another cute piggy theme that we just styled recently. Thanks to Brayden’s mummy for your trust & support. We hope everyone had a great time!

Ballerina in Paris Party

Ballerina in Paris Baby Shower Tablescape

Party themes aren’t just singularly focused anymore, making for a much more personalized experience for all involved. Recently, party planner Susan Driver put this idea into motion with a “Ballerina in Paris” party full of unforgettable aesthetics. Décor was a marriage of petite pretty and breathtaking exquisiteness all in one, merging pale pinks, delicious aromas of big, fluffy roses, and gorgeous desserts to die for.

Tables were put together to create one long banquet set-up, covered in glittery pink tablecloths. A long bouquet of balloons cascaded down the middle, creating a beautiful centerpiece lined with tiny tea roses, tall crystal chandeliers with twinkling gems, and a bouquet ball of roses tufted with pink tulle. Baby pink tableware and white chairs tied with tulle bows completed the magical set-up.

The entryway to the soiree was fantastical and elegant, with a barrage of balloons, flowers, and two life-sized mannequins—one dressed in a formal gold gown and the other dressed in the perfect ensemble for a world-renowned ballerina.

The dessert table over to the far side of the venue was just as amazing, complete with a white and pink curtained backdrop, topped with a gorgeous floral arrangement. The table itself was decked out with plenty of pink tulle and glitter, and plates of personalized bags and boxes of candies and cookies were laid out for all to enjoy.
