Star Wars Baby Shower

Pregnancy + Baby
It's no secret that pretty is the name of the game around here, but every once in a while a totally nutty, yet totally adorable event makes its way into our dashboard and we just can't help but share. In this case? It's a Star Wars baby shower, from Smitten Events! Complete with yoda soda and wookie cookies (obviously!) And with Jamie Lauren behind the lens, there's a whole lot more fun in the gallery.

From Smitten Events... When uber-talented Vancouver-based photographer, Jamie Hodge, of Jamie Lauren Photography, asked us to design a baby shower for her sister, Ali, we were excited. Even more exciting was when we started talking about the theme. Ali's husband Matt is a lifelong Star Wars fanatic so we decided to put together a Classic Star Wars baby shower for Ali and their little Jedi-to-be.

A 1970s-era Star Wars bed sheet we found on Etsy became the inspiration behind the styling and blue, grey and yellow colour scheme. We used the sheet to make table runners, bunting and a throw pillow, items Ali & Matt would be able to use after the shower in their little guy's nursery. Other favourite details included custom signage, yards and yards of sewn star garland and a planetary mobile, all handmade by us. With lots of fun props - light sabers, character masks and Star Wars figurines - the photo booth and candy bar were definitely stars of this shower.
