What do you give the lady who has everything? #babyshowerforabillionaire

So what do you give the lady that has everything? A Before Baby babyshower, of course! Last month, we were lucky enough to host a white gold theme baby shower for billionairess, then mum-to-be, Irene Major on the grounds of her amazing castle home at the beautiful Ingress Abbey.
Irene, a former model and socialite, planned the baby shower alongside her glamorous sister Elsa, and she opted for a neutral take one of our classic ribbon curtain feature tables, as loved by TOWIE star Billie Faiers, with a backdrop made of hundreds of ribbons in shades of ivory, cream and gold. Her stunning feature cake, provided by BBKakes, with nappypins and giant roses, which echoed the oversized paper flowers  on the backdrop. Beautiful handmade cookies and sweets in vintage jars on a glittering sequin table added the final touches to our feature table. Even the mini bottles were customised with Irene’s name, with mini baby feet, and guests were treated to bags full to the brim with goodies with doily decoration, and all came dressed in white!
We planned a classic white gold colour scheme, which turned out to be elegant and perfectly fitting for the lady of the castle. Inside the castle grounds was a BBQ and bouncy castle for the children and guests to enjoy, which included former Xfactor contestants, socialites, friends and family. Then the ladies settled down for a refined afternoon tea followed a not-so-refined round of baby shower games! Guests were busy snapping , dancing and designing personalised babygros for mum-to-be.  The afternoon was rounded off with the big reveal…Irene was blessed to be expecting her 6th child, and she announced the sex of baby to her super-excited guests that afternoon at the party.
You can see the full coverage of Irene’s Baby Shower and a behind the scenes insight into how we worked together to give her a billionaires baby shower on the season premiere of Channel 5’s new series, Billionaire Babies!

Billie Faiers’ Baby Shower

So many people have been asking about the lovely set up we did for the beautiful Billie Faiers from TOWIE’s baby shower, so we thought we’d share a few pics and behind the scenes details with you…

The mum to be had planned a garden party spectacular, but true to form, the British weather ensured that the party had to take place indoors. We gave Billie a fab dessert table of delights – and our dinky donuts and strawberry shakes certainly went down a treat with Billie, Sam and her guests, and we were thrilled to see a pic of mum-to-be and sister with their shakes in OK! Magazine last week.Image

Guests were treated to customised favour bags with a message from the expectant mum and dad to be with our signature sweet and salty pink marshmallow popcorn.

Billie had wanted something pink and yellow to compliment her old fashioned afternoon tea so we gave her a retro sorbet coloured table with pink lemonade, charming pink favour, shot glass strawberry blancmange desserts and a retro styled pink pick and mix buffet that made it no secret that Billie was expecting a girl. We constructed an arch of satin ribbons as a backdrop for the dessert table. Billie later tweeted us saying “thank you for making my baby shower so beautiful” and the table was featured in OK! Magazine, with photos of mum-to-be looking showing off her bump and glowing in a wonderful white lace minidress, alongside gorgeous sister Sam Faiers, dad Greg and best friend Lucy Mecklenburgh and Fearne McCann and friends and family.

We wish Billie and Greg all the best with their new family and the rest of the pregnancy and to find out more information about our baby shower party packages and bespoke baby shower service visit our website or get in touch with a specialist baby shower party planning consultant!

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas…

DSC_0701So we’ve got a Christmas cracker of a deal in store for you! Today we are pleased to launch our new seasonal theme: the Christmas Baby Shower.

If you or a special mum to be is expecting a new arrival in the festive season, our unique Christmas themed baby shower could be just what you’re looking for. This package, exclusive to Before Baby is what we have affectionately termed out “winter wonderland on wheels”- as we’ve laid out a Yuletide extravaganza on our new vintage Victorian party cart. Candy canes, gingerbread, cinnamon popcorn, Stollen, gourmet Christmas cupcakes and minced pies with vanilla cream are just for starters, not to mention a festive inspired sandwich selection (turkey & cranberry sauce rolls anyone?) alcohol free bucks fizz and sweeties galore styled in gorgeous vintage bottles.

Complete with holly and ivy decoration and bunting, alcohol free mulled wine in custom bottles with stripy straws (because we seriously cannot get enough of these!) and Christmas themed gift favour bags full of treats for each guest there’s probably just one thing missing: stocking-fulls of fun – so of course we haven’t forgotten to include 2 baby shower games and a warm up (with a Christmas twist of course).

And because it’s the festive season, we thought we’d spread a little Christmas cheer with a starting price of just £295 for 10 guests at weekend and £255 for parties taking place from Monday to Thursday! There’s very little availability for this one so check it out online now!

Garden Party Baby Shower for Kim Kardashian!

Kim Kardashian’s garden party Baby Shower

It’s the baby shower we’ve all been waiting for….no, not the Duchess’s baby shower! Kim Kardashian’s baby shower of course…and here are all the details…

Kim’s family hosted a beautiful intimate garden party baby shower, with a white colour scheme with floral decoration and an ever so subtle hint of pink (’cause we all know she’s having a girl, even if she won’t say it!) plus delicate hanging floral balls. Guests wore lovely floral headdresses and were suitably attired to match the garden party theme. Kim looked stunning in a floor length Lanvin gown, and was joined by family, friends and fellow celebs Kelly Osbourne and Mel B  and camera-shy dad to be Kanye West even made a reluctant appearance.

Because summer has only just reared it’s head in beautiful Blighty (yay!!!), and let’s be honest, there’s no guarantees that it will last, you can get the outdoor baby shower look, indoors just like Kim with our beautiful afternoon tea Midsummer Tea baby shower, complete with vintage china, rose arch and delicate floral decorations. You can even upgrade and make mum-to-be and guests feel like Grecian goddesses like Kim with spa treatments from professional therapists and make up artists in our Spa Shower package, complete with gorgeous white spa robes for each guest to relax and be pampered in.

Music to our ears: Baby shower invitations the Kim and Kanye way!

Kim Kardashian’s musical baby shower invitations

As the world eagerly awaits the royal baby, it appears there could be a celebrity princess on the way in the form of a little girl for reality TV star Kim Kardashian and hip hop artist Kanye West, if their pink baby shower invitations are to go by!

In true Kim K style, Kim’s invitations were out of the ordinary – so we’re guessing it will be no ordinary baby shower! Though the sex of baby is yet to be revealed, the invitations included pink hinting strongly at the baby’s sex, and clearly dad-to-be’s career may have played a key part in their masterminding as the invitations came in music boxes, with spinning ballerinas dancing to Kanye’s song “Hey Mama”. Have a listen!

Unfortunately, Kim and Kanye weren’t the first to to inject a little music into their baby shower invitations – we’ve always loved helping guests make their parties personally unique and their invitations unforgettable. So if you’re looking for a great way to inform your guests of your bump bash, whilst musical spinning boxes may be reserve of celebrities, at Before Baby you can surprise your guests with a personalised online invitation with your own make like “Kimye” and include a video or song directly on your invitation page so guests can be serenaded whilst they reply, or let us host a baby shower karaoke game at the party!

Apart from being uber-flash, it’s a great way to manage your party guestlist as all the RSVP’s can be made online confidentially and fly straight to your inbox and can even include links to your facebook page, wishlist ideas and discounts on our fabulous baby shower gifts, maps to your venue or home and an online message board for comments from your well wishers and to update guests with all the party details. Pages can also include a photo of yourself, or even your scan photo!


What’s more, a custom themed online invitation page is included completely free of charge with all of our baby shower packages! We also provide beautiful handmade and personalised invitations from just £1.80 per guest too if you’d like to keep it traditional and surprise guests by post.

The baby shower plans have not yet been revealed, but fellow musical mums-to-be Beyonce and Fergie are on the guest list. The party hostesses Kim’s mother Kris Jenner and eldest sisters Kourtney and Khloe have hinted to guests to attend wearing “garden chic” – perhaps a beautiful afternoon tea party is in order to celebrate the summertime new arrival we think… perhaps they’ve had a sneaky peek at our fabulous Midsummer Tea party package for ideas!

For a Kim Kardashian inspired baby shower afternoon tea , check out our Midsummer Tea and Spa Shower packages both including afternoon tea, games, and free personalised online invitation page service.

As it was Fathers day yesterday, what better way to celebrate great dads and dads to be by taking a sneaky peek into the lives of some fabulous expectant celeb fathers at their baby showers.

Recently we’ve seen celebrity fathers splashing the cash to celebrate their new arrivals and organizing and hosting extravagant baby showers for their partners, a role usually reserved for mums, aunties and best friends.

This week, former Frasier star Kelsey Grammer organized a beer-filled baby shower bash for fourth wife Kayte Grammer in a Chicago bar. Guests had mocktails and champagne Not only did he organize the shower, he even indulged in baby shower games with guests.

“Kelsey and Kayte were so cute together–he helped her open every gift!” “He was by her side the entire time. He was totally into it, everyone seemed like a big cute family.” a source said.

Just a month ago, we also saw dad Scott Disick throw second time mum-to-be Kourtney Kardashian one of two baby showers in an upmarket restaurant in NYC, who partied with guests (then disappeared to drink beer at the bar with mates!). Could this be a new dad-to-be trend? Admittedly, every man isn’t the baby shower type but it’s great to see dads-to-be spoiling the ladies in their lives and so excited about their future bundles of joy!

We hope all you new dads and wonderful dads-to-be had a lovely day yesterday, and for those dads thinking of showering a soon to be mummy with baby shower love (I mean, it’s only right she gets of pampering since she has to experience the pain of childbirth soon!), logon to www.beforebaby.co.uk where we’ve got tons of ways that you can celebrate a new arrival, with complete party packages for the lady in your life at home or work from just £14.99pp…
