A few months back, I offered to do a free baby shower set up for a dear friend of mine and posted the pictures a few days later and before I knew it, event styling and decor became part of Sally’s Kitchen and as you can probably tell by now, I really do enjoy doing these set ups and I am always looking forward to the next. The joy I get from seeing my clients/guests happy and excited when they walk into the room and the satisfaction from seeing my ideas come together beautifully is what keeps me going.
I finally get to share a recap of a Baby Shower I styled a couple of weeks ago for a lovely Nigerian Mom-To-Be, Tosin. You should have seen my face when her friend and coordinator, Jade called after seeing photos of another Baby Shower Set Up I had done. I was so excited and a few hours later I had already created an inspiration board on my phone (Trust me, it helps).
I cannot even begin to describe just how breathtakingly beautiful Entim Sidai is – talk of hidden gems. Entim Sidai is a spa and wellness sanctuary in Karen, Nairobi and the name actually means “Beautiful Forest” in Maasai language. You can check them out HERE.
THEME & DECOR
I had been itching to do a twinkle little star theme so when Jade mentioned that she wanted one, I was more than glad to take it up. As for the theme colour, they settled on Pink since she was expecting a baby girl and well, pink and baby girls is a match made in colour heaven.
CAKE & CUPCAKES
The girls wanted a Pinacolada Black Forest and I also baked some orange flavored cupcakes since we all know that a Sally’s Kitchen set up is never without themed cupcakes.
FOOD & DRINKS
Entim Sidai and Dari Restaurant happen to be sister companies so the ladies were able to order the meals and have them delivered to the venue. As for drinks, I had bought some fresh juices and wine.
They say the devil is in the details and I live by that mantra when it comes event styling. The print outs, the banners, the fresh flowers, the personalized wine bottle (I enjoy designing those way too much), the Cake – everything came together so beautifully. I cannot thank God enough – for everything – he makes it all possible.
Thanks for reading!
