For some, party planning talent is something that runs in the family. This is the case for Seri of Little Miss Party Planner. Her sister, Mandy, had been aching to throw her a baby shower, and they compromised with a sip and see. “What a great concept a sip n see is! Invite your friends and family over, serve some food, sip some drinks and see the baby!” Mandy collaborated with two of her good pals to put on this jewel toned, Moroccan themed soiree and their contributions were pretty spectacular.
Ashley put a great deal of creativity and effort into the decor for this party. The color scheme was made of gorgeous jewel tones in cobalt blue, fuchsia pink, sparkling gold and bright white. The details included several DIY projects that Mandy and Ashley worked on, including gold tinted doilies strung along the window, metallic bunting for the bundt cake, gold dipped forks for the dessert table (love love love) and shimmering gold sprayed soup cans used as vases.
“One of my favorite DIY decor pieces that showed up all over the party…were these adorable spray painted elephants! I love them!”
Little Miss Party Planner team member Ali helped design the invitation inspired by one of my favorite stationary sites Iomoi. She also designed fun chocolate bar wrappers set out for the guests to grab on their way out…so sweet!
Mandy’s friend Elyse whisked everyone away to Morocco with the exotic menu for this baby sip and see party.
