What is a Lovely Chic Occasions Baby Shower?
It depends on the host or mom-to-be. Some women love understated elegance. They like the clean, classic look of a “gender neutral” baby shower. A shower that’s simple and chic, not overly grown and sexy, glammed or glittered.
Here are few points we focus on at LCO when planning a baby shower. We start with a soft color palette like mint greens and pastel yellows to which we add pops of bright color or design elements. Those elements may be chevrons, stripes or monochromatic layers of one color creating a moody, understated style. A LCO baby shower could be trendy, with floral design is the focal point.
Then to the décor we add subtle flowers and foliage for a trendy chic look. Next, we love to add touches of baby décor such as wooden blocks, decorative onesies and gold or silver enhancements. For sophistication we use tapered candles, feathers, mason jars as glassware, children’s story books for a little play on the whimsical, bohemian aesthetic. You may even see a hanging floral installation!
If activities are on the agenda, then games and ice breakers start conversations and keep the party moving while artistic, modern crafting (decorating onesies) gets everyone involved. Did someone say story time? And what about dancing? Music is a great add on, for the trendy mom to be.
The menu is a matter of taste and budget, of course, but we believe in keeping it manageable and filling. So how about a cheese platter, croissant spreads, small cucumber sandwiches? Or breakfast add-ons like scrambled eggs, avocado or turkey bacon. Nothing too cutesy or childish. We’ve also been known to suggest a tasteful, American bistro menu of burgers and fries, or chicken and waffles, coupled with mimosas and bellinis. Foods that are personalized to the couple or mother-to-be.
Let’s not forget dessert! For dessert we love the idea of French macaroons, cake pops, pies, donuts, gourmet cookies and a layered naked cake. All of which can double as favors.
As for favors, we suggest something memorable, natural, useful or stylish even. Such as a eucalyptus or Aloe Vera plant, plant seeds or engraved trinkets.
