Since the day my sister announced she was pregnant, I have been brainstorming and planning her baby shower. While waiting to find out whether she was having a boy or girl, I probably planned out 7 different themes/concepts – some of which I shared with you in previous posts. Now that we know it is a girl whom they are naming Faith, the real shower planning has begun (as well as shopping!)
My mother and I looked at 14 different venues ranging from a swank Manhattan styled venue, to a ballroom with views of the river, to a Tuscan styled restaurant, to a revamped church turned restaurant. All were perfect in one form or another for various events or styled parties, but were either too small for our guest list, date unavailable, or just didn’t fit the concept of the event I was aiming for. Finally, we decided on a venue with beautiful waterfall gardens which is perfect for the classy & fabulous Chanel inspired soiree we are planning. Keep your fingers crossed that the weather is cooperative!
Currently in production are the invitations, which I will share with you upon completion. For now, I thought I would share my inspiration for the overall concept of the event.
Influenced by two quotes by the famous Coco Chanel:
“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”
Afterall, shouldn’t a new baby be welcomed in style?
