Nicole and Harry’s baby shower was inspired by the forever classic show, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, yet with a unique twist to mark the celebration of their bundle of joy on the way. You see, Nicole is a DC native while Harry hails from Baltimore and their love story grew after countless trips up and down the Maryland Beltway.
The shower was full of ’90s retro-era bright colors, bold patterns and textures, custom centerpieces, hip-hop music and lots of hidden fun that was revealed throughout the evening.
A Room Reveal to Remember
One of the most satisfying moments of the day was watching Nicole and Harry’s reaction to the room reveal! They trusted our vision, so much that they opted against seeing their lookbook, a design tool we use to showcase all of the room’s elements before it all comes to life. It was truly touching to see their raw reactions and emotions.
Themed events are a great way to have spaces draped in rich details are a fun way to encourage your guests to get involved. A Fresh Prince haircut is the perfect example plus more below!
The details did not stop there! We worked with What the Chef Catering to develop a delicious and creative menu that was created as a nod to the characters from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air show. Guests indulged in Will’s West Philly Cheesesteaks, Jazz’s Jerk Chicken, Hilary’s Smoked Salmon Tea Sandwiches and more!
For their beverages, they had the choice between Light Skin Aunt Viv’s Berry Lemonade or Dark Skin Aunt Viv’s Peach Tea. Did you get it – who was your fav?!? This was such a fun time seeing everyone laugh and then finally choose between the two. Finally, they enjoyed delicious desserts and candy we all loved from the ’90s.
We cannot wait for the Fresh Prince of the Beltway’s arrival. Congratulations Nicole and Harry!
We love to create experiences that are not only unique but will last for a lifetime! If you are celebrating a milestone soon and are looking for an event planner in the DC or NC areas, head here to inquire about your event date. We are ready to celebrate with you!
