As Seen In | Polar Pop-Up Potluck Baby Shower

March 17, 2011

A while back I created a few custom silhouettes to be used in various items for a baby shower thrown by my photographer friend Edyta for her friends Natalie and Jeff. I wanted to share some of the photographs from the Polar Pop-Up Potluck Baby Shower.  How totally adorable are they?


Custom silhouettes so thoughtfully used on the envelopes liners. Edyta create these DIY invitations.


I love this handmade silhouette onesie garland!





In Edyta’s words:

Our dear friends are having their first little girl, nicknamed Baby Kiwi. Natalie and Jeff spent a good chunk of time living in Chicago, it was dear to their hearts. I was booked to photograph a wedding in Chicago that same weekend and knew it was the perfect time to throw a co-ed friends shower for locals to attend. So I crafted all the details at home in San Francisco and flew everything out in one luggage! Chicago in February, yikes, but we embraced it with the details and event space. Friends local and afar traveled to greet our bestest friends and their 1st in a warm, cozy yet modern setting (they are both architects by trade). As a surprise, I included a paper book plate in the invitations for guests to note a message and insert in their favorite baby/kids book for Baby Kiwi’s future library. Books were displayed along with Natalie and Jeff’s own baby photos. A modern, handmade baby shower!
