August 24th, 2018
Hues of blue, bright summer citrus vibes and an eye-catching floral runner combined with our boho lounge area created an intimate event filled with bubbly and sweet treats!
Our mommy-to-be lounged in our Livingston peacock chair while our Allandale chair, Cairo coffee table and Alderson rattan settee rounded out the entire look. See more from Inspired By This below.
“With an elevated and modern color palette and fun details like a balloon garland, this blue and citrus orange baby shower is what dreams are made of! Quite literally, for mama to-be and blogging beauty of Eat Sleep Wear, Kimberly, she dreamt of not only this day, but also the baby on the way for so long that it was only right to celebrate in style! And who better than her friends at Beijos Events to plan it?! When designing, they played on the fresh Orange County feels and fittingly colored tile of this rooftop venue, and boy! did it all come together beautifully!” - Inspired By This
“Kimberly (how cute is she?!) shares…
I have been dreaming about this baby shower for 3 years now. When my husband Blake and I got married, we had the ladies of Beijos Events throw my bridal shower and it was a dream come true. I ended up keeping in touch and becoming friends with Jacquelyn, one of the partners of the business. After we got married, life took some twists and turns and the road to getting pregnant was very difficult for us. After 2 years of IVF treatments, we were finally able to get pregnant, and it was one of the happiest times of our lives. Jacquelyn followed along on our journey to baby and promised that she knew the time would come when she would create the baby shower of my dreams. Needless to say, with tears in my eyes, this baby shower was one of the happiest days yet.
I wanted to find a venue close to home and settled on the Shorebreak Hotel in Huntington Beach. We frequent the Pacific Hideaway restaurant for brunch with our pup on the patio so we knew it would be the perfect beachside location for the shower. I didn’t want any traditional themes that people thing of for a baby boy shower (YES ITS A BOY!!). I wanted something beautiful, coastal, and with a modern twist. Beijos pulled together blues, whites, and pops of orange, and I just adored the whole color scheme.
The florals from MV Florals were effortless and the pops of orange were so beautiful and unexpected. The table top itself had a fresh modern feel, and the glassware is always a favorite of mine from Cherished Rentals. I loved all the custom signage from PoppyJack Shop celebrating our baby boy and it added that extra something to all the tables. One of my other favorite decor elements was the custom balloon installation that hung above the table from Wild Child Party. Honestly the whole day was a dream. With my flower crown, I just felt like a princess, and so lucky to be able to celebrate our little guy by the ocean with some of our nearest and dearest friends.”
