As seen on Love Luxe Life:
The guest-of-honor was dying to have a party that would give her a reason to wear a formal British fascinator to, so International Event Company created the perfect soiree. This polo-inspired baby shower celebrated her love for English culture, culminating in an afternoon Tea & Polo Match to celebrate her Birthday and Baby Shower.
Since the Guest of Honor was expecting a baby boy, guests entered through lush arches of blue and white flowers to be greeted by a traditional English Maypole with costumed dancers. Before reaching the tent, they stopped to design their own fascinator to wear during the party. Other activities included a onesie decorating station, flower crown station, and a variety of classical British games including croquet, darts, chess and backgammon.
The menu was an elaborate display of English fare including tea sandwiches and scones as well as decadent desserts and a ruffled, blue ombre cake with a sleeping baby resting on top. Each place setting featured a miniature version of the same cake as well as bassinets made of chocolate and filled with blue and white candy.
Revelry Event Design gave the décor a modern look in shades of blue and white, with lounge furniture making up the first tier of the tent. The upper level had a row of wooden tables, white lacquer chairs and vintage china. The florals by Mark’s Garden took your breath away and were a collection of delphiniums, roses, hydrangeas and hyacinth artfully arranged and accented with rose chandeliers hanging from the tent and table centerpieces. A wall of hedging and white lattice interspersed with topiaries and floral walls completed the backdrop of the room.
Guests enjoyed specialty cocktails in custom designed glasses accented with pacifiers as they watched the Polo Match between teams USA vs. The Rest of the World. After guests had stomped the divots, they returned to see the USA clench the win as they enjoyed the perfect afternoon.
