Event Design: 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' Baby Shower | Crow Canyon Country Club, Danville CA

We are so thrilled to have this Twinkle Twinkle Baby Shower featured on the Inspired By This Blog! As an event designer I get to create something fabulous for my clients every day. However, this baby shower was special to my heart as it was celebrating my darling sister-in-law, Kohar. We wanted a theme that was classy yet had touches of baby elements. I immediately thought of doing a ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ theme. We kept the color palette very soft with light blue, white, and gold glitter. See below for more details!

Invitations - The invitations were custom made with layers of gold glitter and ice blue card stock. I used a star punch for the embellishment in the middle and wrapped gold and white twine around the invitation. 

Place Card Table - As guests arrived they were greeted by the place card table that had a sign that said "twinkle twinkle little star, do you know how loved you are?". I wanted the place cards to look like shooting stars so I printed the names on ice blue card stock and attached a gold glitter star to the end. They were placed on sticks and sat upright on a wooden stand.

Dining Tables - the dining tables were covered in an ice blue linen and paired with gold chivari chairs. The centerpieces were a mix of hydrangeas, stock, roses, and ranunculus held in a gold mercury glass pedestal. I made gold stars attached to white wire and stuck them in the centerpieces to continue the star theme. For the place settings I found a unique gold star ribbon that I wrapped around the napkin to give it a nice touch. The napkin also held a "wishes for baby" card and a customized gold pencil that said "twinkle twinkle little star"

Mommy's Chair - to make the mommy-to-be feel extra special I hung a cute sign on the back of her chair that had hanging gold and blue stars at the bottom

Straws - As guests arrived we served them lemonade with star paper straws. I attached a glitter star cutout to the top for an extra detail

Activity Table - as an activity we had onesies for the guests to decorate with puff paint. 

Dessert Table - The dessert table was a huge hit. We had a blue draped backdrop with gold foil balloon stars going across diagonally. When I purchased the balloons they were too gold so I softened them a bit by spray painting them with a softer gold color. The table was covered in a champagne sequins linen and all the desserts were presented on white platters to keep the table looking nice and clean. The cake was a ombre ruffled cake with a glittery cake topper that said "twinkle twinkle". All the cupcakes were held by a gold glitter wrapper and a star topper. There was a traditional pudding that was served in mini cups with wooden straws that were embelished with gold chevron and "twinkle twinkle" stickers.
