Spring Shower - Melissa & Jay
August 10, 2014

Longwood, FL. To plan a baby shower for her niece, Melissa, Cynthia started by going to her favorite florist, Lee Forrest Design. After Lee referred her to Michele Butler Events, Cathrina and Michele sat down with Cynthia, to bring her vision to life. The event would incorporate contemporary pinks, grays, and chevron with antique elephants and some of Cynthia's own craftwork. Michele enlisted other fabulous vendors to help transform the simple clubhouse at The Springs. Lee Forrest and his team did an amazing job incorporating all of the ceramic antiques and breathing life into them with fresh floral creations. Lee also found a way to hang paper crafts the clients created and purchased in a way that was artful and intentional. Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals provided tables and chiavari chairs. RW Events Style provided a gorgeous selection of vintage furniture, including the sofa where Melissa and Jay opened their presents. RW events also provided the pink hutch that served for the backdrop for the adorable show cake created by Party Flavors Custom Cakes and mini cupcakes from Serendipity Sweets. Over the Top provided linens that pulled the look together. Cuisiniers Catered Cuisine and Events created Southern- and Mexican-inspired summer dishes including pimento cheese stuffed cornbread bites and spicy shrimp tacos. Click! Photobooths was a huge hit with the guests and documented so many great memories. In addition, Claire Pacelli Photography artfully captured some of the most emotional moments of the family. This was an amazing event that couldn't have been possible without the amazing clients who not only trusted, but worked with the vendors.
