What was the inspiration for the event?
While talking to Kylee, she mentioned Baby Theo’s nursery would be woodlands theme, and we just ran with it. With any event, I like to mainly focus 80% on a color pallet and 20% of the actual theme. This creates a more upscale modern look and it doesn’t get too cheesy. This was the perfect example; you get the woodlands feel with all of the greenery and textures, and we didn’t overdo the woodlands characters. It was the perfect mix.
How far in advance did you start planning?
About 60 days before the event.
How/why did you choose the various vendors?
Over the past couple years I’ve created what I call the dream team. These are the best vendors in the city, and we all have a similar design style. We love working together, and we truly just mesh so well. As a planner, it’s so important to have a great team, and they are truly the best.
What surprised you?
The baby shower was absolutely beautiful, but then I got the pictures back I almost screamed. Lovesick Photography photographed it so well. She captured every detail so well.
What was one roadblock or setback?
We had custom trees built for the event. It was something Poppy Lane and I dreamed up weeks before. We had to make sure they were super full but not too top heavy. They turned out absolutely perfect and were the talk of the baby shower.
What were the highlights of the event for you?
The mix of balloons and greenery with the marquee letters spelling out Theo turned out so pretty. I also loved the acrylic head table with the greenery chandelier hanging above it. The custom bar was also another one of my favorites.
Were there any special requests or requirements?
Not really — most of my clients love to know very little about the event and then are surprised when they walk in. We always do a first-look moment similar to weddings before the guests arrive. It’s the best part of the day seeing their reactions.
What are your go-to vendors in OKC that you always recommend?
Aspen Ranch, Poppy Lane Design, Amy Cakes, Mood Party Rentals and Abbey Roads Catering.
