Last weekend, my family organized the sweetest baby shower for me. What was originally supposed to be a "surprise" at a banquet hall with a 100 guests, turned into an intimate 40 people shower at an Italian restaurant in Beverly Hills called, il Cielo. Although I love big parties, I really wanted this to be special for my little girl with the closest people in my life. The restaurant itself is gorgeous with the most amazing service! The owner, I don't even have words for. Instead of the party planner, he himself spent an hour sitting with us and helped organize the entire day. He even gave me a baby gift at the end: a onesie, with a bib and a hat, so cute! The food was absolutely delicious and the balcony was just perfect for the "garden" theme I was going for. I hired a Harpist from GigiSalad to complete the atmosphere and it was just perfect! Sako at Avant Garden did an absolute AMAZING job with the flowers and did exactly what I wanted, and then some! I was stunned. He has been doing my flowers for every event for maybe 5 years now, including my wedding, so of course, I knew exactly who to go to. In addition, Lucy at Morning Star Cakes has been doing my cakes for years - also including my wedding cake. I love her! I never tell her what to do, I give her the theme and she amazes me every single time. And she doesn't just make cakes that are pretty to look at, but absolutely delicious! Speaking of desert, my desert table was everything, thanks to Shushan at LadyBugz, Inc. She had created macaroon towers and all variations of desserts from Bottega Louie, one of my favorite places! She had also put frames with beautiful quotes that I will also use to hang up in my babys room! Along with the decorations, Mirror Mirror Designs helped with the party favors and placement cards. Sticking with the macaroon theme, they put a single soft pink macaroon in individual jars, simple yet so tasteful (taste and style)! Btw, they are sisters that just started this business about a year ago and they do the most beautiful work. You have to check them out for your next event! A big THANK YOU to Melody Melikian who captured all the beautiful moments and details. She is the queen of elegant photos and I am so happy with my images, it makes me smile :) Ray Pro also captured all the special moments that I cannot wait to share with you shortly! I hope you all enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed the moments. <3
