Maddycakes participated in The Knot/The Bump Cocktails and Connections Event a few weeks ago. It was very short notice, we had one week to decorate half of a ballroom at the Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale with a Bump Lounge. The colors were already chosen to be yellow and orange. I added fuchsia for a little pop of color.
Do you like my Duct Tape backdrop?? More details on that to come in another post.
I love salty and sweet so I always mix my buttered popcorn with M&Ms and sometimes peanuts as well.
I am in love with the alphabet wooden blocks from Pottery Barn Kids. I used them for spelling out Bump and Knot on my popcorn bar.
Also used the Pottery Barn Kids alphabet wooden blocks under candles to give height. Do you see my LED lighting behind it? Soon I will share some of my lighting secrets. It is imperative to light your tables and decor when you have a night or low light party!
I used a crib to display the “gifts”. I bought an old crib and changing table from Craigslist for $50 and spray painted them both yellow. You can easily recreate this for a baby shower. Pretty and unexpected way to display the gifts at the shower. Just use the crib of the mom to be for a FREE option! To make paper banners extra special trim them with ric rac ribbon or pom pom ribbon.
I love details! So of course on the coffee tables I had to give guests some “muses” to take. Loving the Ready to Pop flags from A Pretty Little Party. I wrapped bottles in coordinating fabric and used a baby pin to secure. This is a great way to serve drinks at your baby shower event.
Favors were bags of popcorn wrapped in scrapbook paper and custom tag by A Pretty Little Party. Below is the other side of the ballroom which was the designated Knot area. Can you spot me? I was getting my grub on. The food was amazing and the hotel Saguaro~ so hip and retro!! LOVE! I still have more to show you. However, this is already a super long post so I will have to do a part 2!!
