We were so excited to throw Amber and Alex the most amazing and adorable baby shower. Amber has been a lead event planner with Save the Date Events for almost six years and brings an amazing set of unique design skills, uber detailed planning, and contagious excitement to our team.
We created a French Market inspired party, with delicious baguettes, fresh salads, and beautiful cheese displays. We paired these with lavender lemonade and fresh cucumber water. Plump berries sat in tiny colanders and the smell was lovely from the fresh lavender bunches that were placed around. The flawless work of our dear friend, Rachael from Intricate Icings, drew a tear from the guest of honor – seriously, the cakes were knock-outs!
Amber and Alex are enjoying this exciting time with their new baby boy, Harrison William Fairbanks who was born at 12:14pm on November 23, 2014. Congrats to the new family!

Gabby from Save the Date Events had a baby!
We couldn’t have been happier for Gabby’s wonderful news that she was due with her first baby. Of course, throwing her shower was one of the first things on our mind!
Her adorable shower took place at the House of Common Tea house in downtown Denver. The overall style was elegant, soft, whimsical, and stylish incorporating gray pinstripes, tissue paper pom poms, elegant cream linens, and a touch of mercury glass. Her cake was a meld of pinstripes and pom poms along with a cute little banner at the top honoring baby Hudson.
And a side note – the last few pictures are of three wedding planners at a loss on how to cut a cake. The slices ended up being huge and there was cake all over the place! Needless to say, it was utter devastation…
A note from Gabby: Hudson Paul Greenleaf was born on December 22, 2012 to some very happy people! Jason and I are thrilled to have such a cute little boy – it may be a cliche, but there is honestly no greater love than the love between a mom and her child.

We worked the hostess for two months to design and create this lovely baby shower in Denver. After analyzing so many details about the mom-to-be, we decided on a lime and fuchsia color scheme with subtle hints of leopard accents and a bit of bling.
We searched for the perfect designer fabric and settled on the gorgeous silk fuchsia and lime plaid fabric to create custom table runners. We used this pattern on the cake design as well. The place settings were gorgeous with custom menu cards, fuchsia napkins and a bling buckle accent with ribbon. Guest chairs were accented with vertical fuchsia chair ties. Guest went home with custom gift bags and OPI nail polish accented with leopard-print ribbon.
The guest of honor is a fitness fanatic so we wanted to keep the menu light but fun. We worked with the restaurant to create a lovely healthy appetizer display with fruit sushi, smoothie shooters and mini yogurt parfaits. For lunch, guests chose from a menu of healthy seafood salads and gourmet sandwiches.
The cake was an important design element for this Denver baby shower. Along with incorporating the pattern from our custom linens, the cake designer created a sugar figurine of the expectant mom! The hostess, guests and mom-to-be raved all day about this stunning cake.

Aside from all the fabulous Colorado weddings we get to plan, we occasionally design and plan baby showers, bridal showers and bridesmaid brunches in Colorado. This baby shower was themed for a boy with simple whimsical zoo animals. We incorporated chocolate brown, baby blue and orange throughout all the details including the salad bar vases. The blue punch and matching cake from Lovely Confections completed the fun details for this Boulder baby shower.
