Peter Rabbit Baby Shower

 


Last week, our little shop team got together to celebrate balloon girl, Taylar, and her upcoming baby boy arrival. With Easter coming soon, we decided to have fun with the classic theme of Peter Rabbit. Such a fun one! Our Creative Director, Emily, put together a beautiful setup to celebrate the occasion. Sharing all the fun details and pictures...




With the Easter and spring season upon us, we got in so many cute Peter Rabbit party supplies. Playing with ideas, we ended up with the above table settings - love that you can mix the die cut Peter Rabbits with the pattern of all his friends. We mixed them with these solid blue dinner plates that remind me of china, a personal favorite. The blue dried flower confetti was the perfect table covering accent. I mocked up the table for you to shop and play with on Set the Party - added a couple of the other options and think the surprise carrots would be such a fun touch if you are using for your Easter table. I also think the egg hunt signs are adorable for your yard. Shop all of our fun Easter party supplies here.

Shop favorite, September Moon Cupcakery, made adorable cupcakes for the shower - love the little bunnies on them! Everyone was so excited to eat them, we didn't get a lot of pictures unfortunately, but take that as a recommendation that they taste amazing! None were leftover except the one I nicely didn't eat, so that I could take home to share with my September Moon Cupcake addict three year old haha!




The main setup revolved around the beautiful mother of the group. We moved over our teal couch from the other room and Emily added some blue balloons that coordinated with the Peter Rabbit supplies. Florals were purchased from Trader Joe's and arranged in vases we own. We gifted her with a shop favorite, the Poppie Rocking Horse (reach out if you would like us to special order for you!), as well as some baby essentials. We kept it small and simple, but I think the impact of everything was beautiful!


We are so excited for Taylar and her family! Shop baby boy coming soon - he's going to mix things up around here. With that being said, Taylar is taking a step back to get into the groove of two children and taking care of baby. Emily is now the go to for balloon inquiries and questions. So grateful for our amazing team, not all are pictured here as it was a come and go, but I couldn't have these shops without them!

Mini Spa Day

 

Our annual Valentine party with Sally Cavanaugh had a little twist this year - spa day! Instead of the usual aprons, she found adorable Matilda Jane robes and we ran with the fun theme. We decided the best way to do the party this year, was multiple micro sized groups. It ended up being such a fun morning for all the littles, being pampered and all! Sally captured the event beautifully in these pictures.





The setup was inspired by some cute eye mask napkins one of our brands carries - perfect for a kid or adult spa day! We added some cute heart confetti to tie in Valentines. Cookies by Sweet Sugarlicious added to the spa theme - they were perfect! The backdrop, we made a large eye mask from balloons to match the napkins. The cute A frame tent is Elizabeth's I brought from home, love a tent setup for a girls' day. Babe Cave pillow is hers, and we have carried in the shop before, trying to get more. 






Activities for the micro parties included Valentine making and nail painting. Piggy Paint is a kid friendly nail polish brand we started carrying in the shop, and I was excited to use it at the event. They made for a great activity and party favor. I pulled sets that come with nail stickers, so then they were able to add some fun flair to their fancy fingers. 



After hosting these events, we started brainstorming on how to work back in event rentals at the shop. Safety and easing back into it were the main goals, and these micro spa events were such a success, we decided that would be our start! Our event documents are in final edits and we will be sharing more this week. We will be renting out our 3202 space for the next couple months to host micro parties for 6 children and we will take care of everything for you! We will also offer a micro shower option, perfect for a small group of friends and/or digital showers. Make sure you are following us on social media for updates and we will be updating our event page with new event documents soon!


Lots of Love,

Cookies & Valentines

 


When we wanted to throw together a cute shoot for Valentines, I reached out to our friend Hungry Bunny to collaborate! She has been working on her tasty love bites for the holiday. Since we are still in the midst of the pandemic, we weren't able to do a big one with multiple children, but our balloon coordinator's adorable daughter jumped in some pics for us! 





Give us all the pastels for this year and we are loving everything hearts, including the table confetti! These heart plates and napkins come in multi-color packs and are adorable on the mixed on the table. The heart suitcases work as a centerpiece, gift holder and Valentine keepsake boxes. Our event coordinator, Emily, set the table and her idea to use the retro basket as a floral centerpiece was so fun! Who wouldn't love to receive a basket of flowers! The heart sunglasses and glitter lip glosses make for perfect party favors and gift items. 






Hungry Bunny played with our conversation heart theme and added her signature glitter touch! Plus that giant cookie cake looks delicious - someone send me one to eat by myself lol. Follow her website and on social media for Valentine ordering details. Support local and send some goodness to friends. Just add glitter (best kind is the edible kind!).
