I had the great privilege of planning a co-ed Hampton’s baby shower this past weekend for a former bride, her husband, and 38 of their closest family and friends. We’ve worked with the family quite a few times before, having planned both her mixed metallic Rainbow Room Wedding and her sisters chic tented Hamptons wedding. as well as a chic birthday party last year on the beach in Westhampton.
With only a month to plan the baby shower and after some deliberating, we settled on the theme of Dr.Seuss “Oh, the places she’ll go”. The object was to keep everyone feeling safe from the pandemic while feeling festive enough to celebrate. Through a combination of methods executed by a great vendor team , we made it happen.
One of my favorite concepts we brought to life: Each reserved seating area had a cocktail table which was set with their own accouterments including water, specialty drink (with cute custom Seuss themed hang tag signs by Ceci New York), personalized drink tumblers, mini champagne bottles on ice, hand fans, EO hand sanitizer spray, custom face masks, a megaphone and a copy of Dr. Seuss “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” Custom “Oh Baby” masks by Corbin Style were also distributed to guests and front-of-house staff.
Nice to conjur a bit of magic again.
Special thanks to the team who came together to create this celebration.

As Dr.Seuss so eloquently put it,
Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball
will make you the winning-est winner of all.
