I am super excited to share my latest inspiration for a baby shower in a recent issue of Mingle Magazine.
I knew I wanted a story told through this shower. I started with the book title, “Great Expectations” as the theme. I mean who doesn’t love a good book? I adore timeless classics and seeing a child’s imagination explode through storytelling. I pictured a well-illustrated nostalgic space where people enjoyed showering Ciara with love and especially time. I wanted the relationship between the characters from this story to come to life, just like they do when reading a good book.
Playful colors, retro touches and handmade items set the tone and a childlike afternoon filled with silly games, big smiles and belly laughs commenced! The event felt experiential, creative and inspiring and Mingle magazine did an incredible job of capturing the details in their beautiful spread of pictures!
This gathering left a special place inside my heart and surprisingly a new found love and appreciation for Little Golden Books.
Feel free to pick up a copy of Mingle and enjoy all the great ideas for creative gatherings. You can see lots more great photos from this great event in the Life in Cursive Gallery.
