This past week has been a whirlwind! I traveled back to Toronto for a few different reasons — mainly to attend a good friend's wedding on New Year's Eve, to see family and celebrate Ukrainian Christmas, and to attend my own baby shower (hosted by two of my sisters and a very close friend). Oh, did I forget to mention that my husband and I are expecting our first child in about 10 short weeks? Crazy!
All Black, White and Gold: My Sophisticated Baby Shower
Since the hubs and I don't plan on finding out the gender of the baby, I had asked that the theme of the party be kept gender neutral and classic. I find gold to be so very on trend this year and always makes any shindig a classier affair, so what better way to perk up the ever sophisticated duo of black and white?
The hosts asked me for a few baby shower ideas and preferences that I had in mind, then ran with it and planned the most perfect day without any stress on me. What godsends!
I couldn't have asked for a better day. Here are the close up photos of all the black, white and gold party and decor elements that made up my beautiful baby shower, starting with the receiving table, cake table and streamer backdrop:
