We threw a Parisian themed baby shower for a dear friend, Shela last weekend. The party preparations started several weeks prior to the event. The mother-to-be has a gift for graphic design, so imagine her enthusiasm when she went hands-on in designing water bottle labels, onesie banners, blog site, gift box logos, save the dates and invites for the party. She has an eye for small details. I, on the other hand, had a great time getting all the stuff together, buying decorations and transforming a 2-bedroom apartment into a baby shower suite for the weekend with the help of friends and family.
We also had a hilarious yet stressful (at the time) morning with all the baking in the kitchen with Wrap and May--family of the mother-to-be and was touched by the other relatives and friends who helped out preparing sandwiches and setting up the refreshments and crepe station.

The Menu : An event is not complete without food of course.
The sweets definitely have to make an appearance.
We baked the chocolate chip cookies ourselves several days before.
We set up a crepe and waffle station so anyone can freely create their own.
Mini Eiffel Towers popped in throughout the apartment. We also managed to arrange a 6' version as well.
These intricately designed cupcakes were made by Fadge Cakes. I don't usually eat cakes but they were yummy goodness. I even requested for extras. Do check out Fadge Cakes Blog

The Games : The prizes consist of Chanel Cosmetics inside these boxes.
With that, the guests had great fun playing baby shower games.
Pin the Bottle on the Baby: Blindfolded, the closest one to the baby's mouth wins. (I won this one -lol)

Crazy enough, by the end of the day, we monopolized the photo booth. Here's the proof..
Happy Wednesday eveyone!
