Designer Lisa Bardot from The Goodness and her husband Geoff welcomed their first child – a baby boy! – in January. For their baby shower, Lisa and Geoff decided to forgo a traditional shower in favor of a co-ed baby party (a concept that I’m personally very fond of). To keep things happy and gender-neutral, Lisa went with a bright rainbow color palette with lots of geometric shapes. So fun!
From Lisa: When we got to thinking about our baby shower, my husband and I knew we did not want a traditional shower. More of a big celebration with all of our friends and family, and so we decided to have a “Baby Party” instead! It was for women, men, and kids with lots of fun, food, and drinks. We had a photo booth, taco cart, dessert bar, gender raffle, and a just a couple of fun games.
The theme for the baby’s room is hip, modern, fun, geometric, and COLORFUL. So we decided that would also be the theme of the party. Plus we hadn’t yet announced the gender of our baby and we were really big on being gender neutral. The invitations used a very colorful triangle background with bold white text on top.
Simple kraft paper envelopes complemented the colorful invitations. One of my favorite details is the envelope liner with “baby” song lyrics on the inside. I also designed matching thank you cards.
I designed a few other items for the party including signage, guestbook pages for our photo booth guestbook, gender raffle tickets, and “new parent coupons” (a fabulous idea by my sister!). Décor included lots of rainbow triangle and circle garland, along with a rainbow of floral arrangements on the tables outside. The party was absolutely perfect and tons of fun!
Thanks Lisa – and congrats! You can also see more from Lisa and Geoff’s baby shower right here.
