Every baby shower is special in its own right, but you can bet your bottom dollar that when the sweet Lexington And Co is at the helm it’s going to be perfect. A hint of whimsy, a little sparkle and a whole lot of baby adorableness all wrapped up in love. Not to mention, a cake that’s borderline too pretty to eat! With photos from Kayla Rocca, there’s more over here!
From Lexi… My sweet friend Kelly is having her first baby, and since she calls him Baby Fozzy Bear we wanted to shower this beautiful babe with a whimsical Winnie the Pooh themed baby shower. It only seemed fitting since Winnie the Pooh is the cutest bear of the them all.
As a party planner, I coordinated, designed and styled the baby shower to be inspired by Winnie the Pooh. I didn’t want the theme to be overbearing so I used soft blues, yellows, neutrals and gold but also mixed in soft summer tones to ensure the decor was tasteful – and didn’t become too colour coordinated.
The Sweet Table felt magical, and I wanted to design it so that Kelly felt like she had stepped into a Pinterest Page. From her reaction I think that it worked. There were blueberry scones, DIY Tim Hortons cake pops, mini vanilla cupcakes with buttercream icing, and lemon macarons. The Ffocal point of the sweet table was the chocolate cake with mint flavour fondant and adorable edible baby boy shoes. I thought it would be perfect to add in the “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” cake topper since it has always been a traditional favourite nursery rhyme.
The shower favours were sweet & salty popcorn ” She’s Gonna Pop” and a take-home mason jar of local honey ” Sweet as can Bee.” The honey did not only symbolize Winnie the Pooh himself, but my boyfriend’s father is a bee-keeper by passion, and made all the honey fresh from his hive in Kars, Ontario. I know the honey would have been Pooh approved!
Leah, Kelly’s best friend, took care of the afternoon snacks, games, prizes, invites and guest book. She is dynamic and exactly the girl you want to work with when planning a party. The games had us in stitches, and made our Sunday truly a Fun-day. One of the games was guessing how big Kelly’s belly was by using a string to measure… let’s just say a couple of us thought she was much bigger then she actually was. Oops!
The guestbook was a classic hardcopy Winnie the Pooh book that will fit perfectly on the nursery bookshelf. Each guest wrote a sweet love note to Baby Fozzy Bear – a keepsake i’m sure he will always treasure.
After some candid shots by the water, some gift opening, sangria and lemonade followed with coffee and tea we hugged our sweet mama to be knowing that the next time we see her she would be carrying Baby Fozzy Bear in hear arms instead of her belly.
Our goodbye’s have become increasingly harder over the years knowing that our Kelly leaves to go back to Europe for 8 months of the year for work. However, these are the occasions that are always worth celebrating, are always worth making beautiful , and are always worth making special- because these are the memories that we get to share forever.
Cheers to Baby Fozzyy Bear – Winnie the Pooh’s true competition!
