When Carla knew she was having a girl she immediately envisioned a casual, brunch baby shower where her friends and family could mingle and celebrate in each other’s company. With some delicate touches complemented by a rustic foundation, the theme was shabby chic. Carla incorporated white chevron, pale pink and accents of burlap and lace for an extra feminine touch.

Carla is an event planner so she was lucky enough to have her friends in the industry help perfect the details. The day would have not been the same without Carla’s sister from New York, mom, sister-in-law from Georgia, mother-in-law, stepmom and 92 year-old grandmother.
The food was catered by Chef Melissa Major. There were light appetizers including crab stuffed cucumbers, lox wrapped around cream cheese with poppy seeds and prosciutto wrapped melon. The dessert bar had macarons, champagne cupcakes, “E” cookies for Elle, cotton candy and cake pops.
To add an extra sweet touch, the silverware was wrapped in doilies tied with raffia. Crystal from A Sign of My Love made all of the food labels, burlap banners and favor tags on mini soaps that read “From My Shower To Yours.’
