I am the middle sister of three redheaded girls. Commence feeling bad for my parents. My older sister and I are two years apart and our younger sister is six years younger. Growing up my older sister and I would fight over clothes, friends, and other important things like how many squirts of hairspray I could borrow. But we never fought with our younger sister because she was and always will be the baby. When she announced they were pregnant, you can imagine our surprise. Didn’t she just turn 7? We wanted to throw our “baby” sister an epic baby shower; so we called in the big guns…
Le Papier Studio did a fabulous job on our invites. After giving very simple direction, (A Jack & Jill Shower/Not Finding Out The Sex of Baby) we ended up with these beauties from Owner & Creative Director Vana Chupp. I was truly blown away not only by her artistic capability but the speed in which she turned around TWO completely custom designs. Although we couldn’t go wrong here, we went with the one on the right:

We partnered with Maggie Kirk, Owner of Petite Partee to help plan all of the details from beginning to end. I can’t recommend her enough. She took all of my ideas, added her own flair, and executed flawlessly. We came up with a travel theme since the “couple of honor” both love to jet-set. Guests brought travel related books for kids to fill in a vintage suitcase that Maggie lined with map paper. And check out these adorable shoes she found for Baby M’s own little journey…

Walking the SoWa markets one Sunday, I stumbled upon a booth and fell in love with their signature mason jar floral designs. They added a really nice accent to our tables:

A huge thank you to all of our vendors; especially Legal Harborside. Because when Washington D.C. called and bumped us out of our original room for a John Kerry lunch (no seriously that happened), they let us use their gorgeous roof deck space instead!
