Our dear friends at 2Create Designs produced a rustic, chic baby shower for the soon to be new mama and #RHOC star Meghan King Edmonds and we have all the juicy details! Bringing together natural elements with some Maharani flare, Saman, the owner, created an event that was intimate and impressive to this guest list of saavy shoppers. Charming, usable details, like this white play teepee and chair garland decorated the gorgeous room at the Balboa Bay Resort. Sweet Tooth Candy Buffets delighted guests while Patty Cakes Tasty Bakes and her "naked cake" made sure these ladies were calling their trainers in the morning! My favorite detail of all is hands down the laser cut wooden signs by The Bleu Dahlia that give that personalized finishing touch. Make sure that you browse through this lovely gallery, filled with ideas for your own shower or engagement party!
1. How did you first meet Meghan and start working with #RHOC?
I had reached out to her via social media and she was extremely kind enough to respond requesting a meeting. It was very humbling to know that Meghan was just like any other client, requesting to set up a meeting rightaway to discuss details of her intimate shower.
2. What's different about working on a celebrity baby shower?
I think it is important to note that at the end of the day, celebrity or not, there just isn't anything more special than being able to witness the excitement from an expectant mom. Meghan is a very humble person and actually wanted a simple, shabby chic shower. I may have convinced her to add some elements as my own excitement and ideas came to fruition!
3. What was it like to work with Meghan?
Throughout the planning process, Meghan was very calm, collected, and excited! This made my job very easy as she gave me plenty of room to be creative with. She mentioned a few of her favorite flowers, colors, and the rest I tried to run with. She kept in touch with me regularly which made it very comfortable to talk to her and I am glad that I have gained not just a client, but a friend through this experience.
4. Did you meet the other Housewives?
I did meet some of the previous housewives who were very kind. They were generous with their nice words about the event and have even inquired about future events which I am very excited about!
5. What was the inspiration behind the shower?
In terms of inspiration, I would have to say it was very airy, earthy, and rustic. It ironically reminded me of mother nature in many ways-the soft colors, greenery, and woodsy palettes made it seem like we were in a secret garden. I am so happy that we were able to take Meghan's vision and bring it indoors.
6. Do you know Meghan's baby's name?
Yes, but not telling!
