Watercolor Party Details:
This is what Maureen shared about the party- “Styling events is such a passion of mine that I asked the hostesses of my own Sprinkle if I could be a little more involved than a guest of honor normally would be. I took some of the pressure off of them as far as the décor was concerned and they were able to focus on important details like food and entertainment. Regardless of how it all came together, we had a beautiful afternoon celebrating the upcoming birth of my second baby. I felt very loved and grateful for all the support I have as we prepare to meet our new little boy.
The watercolor elements seen throughout the sprinkle décor were inspired by the beautiful Oh Baby invitations. Working with the color palette of sea glass green and gray was an effective way to carry the simple theme from the tablescape, to the florals, to the desserts.
Although I am an amateur painter at best, I attempted to create several of the watercolor items myself including the backdrop to the dessert table, painted paper fans, dip-dyed cloth napkins, and the circle garlands. It turns out that abstract watercolor painting is very relaxing for me and I really enjoyed it. The Oh Baby photo display included some more watercolor painting along with b&w photos of babies from many generations of both sides of our family. Perhaps those family photos gave the guests a glimpse of what our baby boy will look like.
Sweets are always a big part of designing an event for me. The dessert table for the sprinkle boasted a gorgeous, 2-tiered watercolor cake with white wafer paper roses. Little details can make such a big impact and I loved having the “Oh Boy!” engraved cake server and personalized napkins right by the cake. Hand-painted macarons and passion fruit cream tarts adorned with white chocolate pearls rounded out the sweet nibbles. Also, I can’t forget the monogrammed sugar cookies that served as edible place cards for each table setting. Function and beauty at their best!
One of my favorite elements at the sprinkle was the framed watercolor “You Are Loved By Me” painting that was lovingly created by my friend Mollie of The Prints and the Pea. The quote is shortened from a song written by a favorite children’s band of our family called Hullabaloo. The simple lyrics to the song can be summed up by, “You are good, you are strong, and you are loved by me”. Such a beautiful sentiment that I think all children should hear and believe about themselves.”
