Lucy Riles: Attention, ladies ... it's time to channel your inner Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, or Miranda! For your next baby shower, reinvent this special occasion to make it fun, chic, and fabulous ... "Sex and the City" style!
Baby Chic Invites: Design baby shoe-shaped invitations and decorate with jewels, rhinestones, and ribbons ... think "What would Manolo Blahnik or Jimmy Choo do if they designed baby shoes?" Also, on your invitation, ask your guests to dress up in their favorite heels, dress, and accessories ... including the mommy-to-be ... minus the heels, of course!
Stylish Signature Cocktails: As a signature drink, serve up "pink or blue" punch in martini glasses. Also, if you choose to serve alcohol at your party, you MUST serve Cosmopolitans!
Dish Out Something Delish: Sushi rolls (not for the mom-to-be, of course), shrimp cocktail, and of course, Chinese take-out! Keep the food in the take-out cartons ... it's SO "Sex and the City" and makes for easy clean-up. For dessert, order some fabulous gourmet cupcakes and chocolate pudding in containers (from the SATS movie) ... in honor of Charlotte's experience in Mexico!
Blinged-Out Baby Bottles: Set up a craft station where your guests can decorate their own blinged-out baby bottles and pacifiers using rhinestones, ribbons, and jewels.
Fabulous Favors: Give each guest a small bouquet of flowers they can take home and enjoy ... and instead of mini vases to put them in, use Chinese take-out cartons!
