In the invitations, the guests were encouraged to all wear black. The guests of honor were given boas to wear (pink for momma, white for bride). Since it was an evening event, I tried to create a warm, romantic feel with lots of candles and soft lighting. It was fun to create something different than the usual baby shower brunch (although I do love those too!) We snacked on yummy appetizers (courtesy of the other Divas), and delicious desserts including my favorite, cupcakes. A classic champagne sherbet punch was served to drink.
For favors, I found fabulous votive candle holders at Ikea. They were in packs of 5, and about $4/pack. They varied in design with clear/pink/white/black, so they were perfect for this party. Ikea also had a perfect variety pack of pink votives to fill them. I put them in cellophane bags and tied with black ribbon and a Thank You tag.
