Without a doubt, we are the luckiest couple in the world with friends and family that care for us (and baby J) the way they do. A few months ago, my sister asked me what kind of a baby shower I wanted to have and I knew immediately that I wanted something coed, unique and much like our wedding, insanely fun.
We knew we wanted to have the party in LA/OC, but planning 350 miles proved to be a bit difficult. Luckily, Peerspace came in a pinch and helped us out with finding a venue J and I both loved. After a few emails a Peerspace rep, the one space that stuck out the most was Greenbar Distillery located in the downtown LA Arts District. It's the untraditional choice for a coed baby shower, which fit the unique and fun criteria for us, and that was what we loved most about it. Another item on our wishlist was to have a space for catering or a food truck, and our host Bennett at Greenbar was so accommodating to work with.
In a blink of an eye, we had a venue space and it quickly helped pave the way to plan the rest of the shower details. The next step was to figure out the invitation/paper details, which would help us figure out the general "theme" of the shower. Working at Minted, it was an easy process for me to find the design that we both loved and fit "us" perfectly. We decided on Marabou Design's "Agave Bebe" which was a great throwback to our Palm Springs wedding.
From there, my sister took over planning out every single detail of our beautiful baby shower and I could cry thinking about how perfect everything was. She got in touch with our friends who helped create the look and plan out the nitty gritty details. The cake, cupcakes and favors were all done by Tania, the mastermind behind Soap.ish and Cake4Six. This (super) woman has been a part of our lives for just about 7 years and has helped us plan my bridal shower, our wedding, and now our greatest adventure yet with baby J.
