Creating The Honestly Ultimate Baby Showers

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Throwing an unforgettable baby shower is easy when you have deserving moms-to-be as your source of inspiration. Not to mention, great partners certainly help to turn the honorees’ dreams into a reality. With the help and generosity of Land of Nod, Tea Collection, HATCH Collection, Orbit Baby, Naturepedic, Beco, Stonyfield Farm, Cloud B, and our talented team of event specialists, we hosted four parties across the country without a hitch. We hope this detailed look inside the Honestly Ultimate Baby Showers leaves you party-ready, providing great ideas for décor, food, activities, gifts, and festive fun!

Happy Hippo Baby Shower

We welcomed LA winner Jessica Turner to an honestly happy hippo shower at Kidville Brentwood. Jeannie Savage of Details Details transformed the music room into a whimsical luncheon marked by paper goods from our friends at Wiley Valentine and spectacular décor from Bloom Box that included a custom tablescape and hippo cookies grazing the wheatgrass boxes. Did you notice the amazing chair bows?  The event was made complete by food from The Delicious Cook and Sprinkles Cupcakes.

Comic Book Baby Shower

Land of Nod opened its doors to host a superhero baby shower designed by Nicole Balch of Making it Lovely. As a web/graphic designer and comic lover, Chicago’s Casey Arendt excitedly chose our comic diaper as the inspiration for her gender-neutral shower.  Nicole ran with it and incorporated graphic tablecloths, sculptural flowers in punchy colors, and masks to make a fun statement. To celebrate the mom’s creative background, guests enjoyed a DIY onesie station and photo booth. And then they noshed on a tasty meal catered by Wow Bao.

Vintage Garden Party Baby Shower

The Simplifiers helped us celebrate Austin winner Chelsee Capezutti by transforming Whole Foods Culinary Center into a vintage garden party inspired by our blooms diaper.  Toile, vintage china, flowers with a just-picked feel, and a string trio were the perfect complement to the tasty Whole Foods lunch of salads, tea sandwiches, mini Southern pies, and sparkling lemonade. Before indulging in a beautiful cake designed by Chelsee’s friend—Sweets by Suzi—guests had fun matching the candy bar with the pregnancy-related clue (i.e., Girl’s Name = Baby Ruth) and sharing wishes for the baby.

Anchors Away Baby Shower Inspiratio

It was anchors away when we showered NYC winner Perminder Thiara at Locanda Verde (her favorite food is Italian!). Inspired by our anchor diaper print, Jennine Hannaway created a nautical-themed shower that was perfectly timed for the summer arrival of the honoree’s baby boy. Perminder’s favorite game is bingo, so Jennine planned baby shower bingo to engage guests in gift opening. And friends and family also had fun guessing what baby items were hidden in bags one through ten (earplugs proved to be a challenge).

Hatch Collection Showers Winners As a way to celebrate the moms’ inspirational stories, dedication to family and community, and their strong spirits, our partners joined us in helping them create a healthy and safe nursery. Each winner received a lifetime supply of Honest Diapers (plus, an assortment of Family Essentials); a Land of Nod shopping spree; a Tea Collection shopping spree; a Hatch Collection shopping spree (and dresses to wear to their shower); an Orbit stroller system; a Naturepedic mattress; Beco carriers and accessories; a year supply of Stonyfield yogurt; and Cloud B toys. We can’t wait to hear what their little ones think!

    Hola Jessica,

    My name is Alejandro, pleased to meet you… =o)

    First and foremost I must apologize for reaching out to you this way but as you can imagine its a very perplexing thing to get word to any mega celebrity such as yourself… =o)

    Jessica, it would be greatly appreciated if you could take a moment out of your life to consider helping a friend of mine; Her name is Alisa Valdes, and she is truly a diamond…

    Right now we’re in need of heroes to help push our movie project to its goal. And with everything on the table we’re afraid it may not be enough to make the greatly needed financial challenge.

    I really know in my heart that this movie will help to finally break the stereotypes about Latinas and Latinos in the movie industry… =o)

    Jessica the intention of this letter is not to ask for one penny from you, but simply to ask if you can pick up the reins and help to spearhead this caravan to its distant goal, by becoming one of our official representative/ambassadors in social media for what now looks like a long journey ahead… =o)

    Please at the very least say hello to Alisa Valdes and her fiancé Mike Gandy for they can use the moral support right now… =o)

    Thank you Amiga, you do not need to reply back, Im simply asking if you can please help with our project in any way you can… =o)

    Thanks… =o)

    PS- if the above link does not open up, then I believe it’s because you must be logged onto FB first… =o)

  7. Some lovely ideas and thanks for sharing. Baby showers are a little tricky to plan especially when someone else is planning if for you. Make sure you have someone writing down the gifts when you are unwrapping them as we received the most amazing teething toy and I can’t remember (bumpbrain) who gave it to us.

  8. Some really lovely ideas! I really like the styling with the bright native flowers and the black and white table runner.

  9. Giving baby shower party is one of loving way for baby, new mom dad so thnaks for sharing it looks wonderful.
