Let the baby shower festivities begin!
Last weekend, a baby shower was put on for me to celebrate the much-awaited arrival of our little boy! The gorgeous atmosphere, delicious food, and even better company couldn’t have provided a more special day to celebrate our little one.
I can’t even tell you how blessed Eric and I have felt throughout our entire pregnancy. We’ve had so many wonderful family and friends who have come together to celebrate us during this special time. I am so grateful, and I can’t wait for Baby B to finally meet everyone who already loves him.
With just 4 weeks to go until he is due, I thought I would share some of the details from the day!
After searching for local venues for my upcoming baby shower, Event Space at 5550 was a no brainer! I knew I wanted to go with a gender-neutral theme and the chandeliers and airy inviting space at Event Space 5550 was a perfect backdrop for my chic black and white party! With a capacity of 50 people or less, I loved how intimate and cozy it felt with our smaller group. The best part – the room can be configured in a multitude of styles, including banquet, board meeting, or classroom seating- with both round and rectangular tables, they’ll find a seating arrangement that works best for your event. All that’s left is bringing in your own decor. It truly is your one-stop events spot for hosting events!
All of the food was provided by Doorstep Diner Catering. We went with an assortment of delicate finger sandwiches on croissants, colorful fruit skewers, and a meat and cheese platter. It was the perfect variety of finger foods for a mid-afternoon party! All of our guests raved about the presentation and flavor of the appetizers.
I wasn’t planning on doing a party favor until I found THESE adorable mini black and white favor boxes!! I filled each one with candies and included on the table as centerpieces. They are sold on Amazon and I got so many comments during and after my shower about what a nice touch this was! (Under $15!)

I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful party to celebrate the arrival of Baby B. Thank you to my family who spent the afternoon with me and Event Space 5550 for hosting us! I am still amazed at how everything turned out.
I am more ready than ever to become this boy’s mama!
