Alicia Keys Butterfly Inspired Baby Shower Montage

There is a boom of celebrity babies popping up for the year of 2010. I wanted to to share my vision as a designer on how I would orchestrate a fabulous baby shower for one of my favorite singers Mrs. Alicia Keys.

We all know that she finally announced that she was pregnant by Switz Beats and they are truly happy for the new baby to arrive. But has Mrs. Alicia though about how she would do her baby shower? Well I have and thought it would be nice to share some ideas on what she could do if she was expecting a girl. By looking at some of her pictures,I have an idea by her size that maybe her baby is due in December but of course that is just my opinion.

I decide to pick a butterfly themed baby shower. Alicia's first song that she wrote was titled "Buttefrlyz" and I wanted to bring in elements of all of her favorite things that she would share if she had a little girl.

I really love the color purple and found out that Alicia Keys favorite color is purple so of course that would be the ideal color to choose. I would probably add in silver with touches of pink to give it more of a chic look. Her favorite kind of cake is vanilla ice cream with chocolate fudge so I would want to create maybe a layered ice cream cake that had her favorite color for icing with some butterflies touches. Now seeing as though she is pregnant I would offer her guest different shots of milk in shot glass for a more elegant yet classic feel. Alicia is unable to drink whole milk so of course I would bring out her favorite which would be almond milk and offer a variety of whole,skim,chocolate,strawberry and of course almond milk to her guest with some butterfly cookies stirring sticks.

I would layer the tables with different shades of purple to bring out depth and it soften it a bit.To keep the butterfly theme going I found this really cute butterfly cage to be the centerpiece which would hold live butterflies. Of course many of you may say butterflies are more for spring or summer themed events but who made that rule? You should not have to be limited to do what you like during certain times of the year. Her guest favors would be either little sterling silver butterfly jewelry boxes or perfume bottles with the crystal bottoms.

If you could do a celebrity baby shower, who would you pick and what you do?

Beautiful Backdrops

Have you ever been in banquet room and the walls where just horrendous? Nothing about the color of paint or wall paper screamed and said that your event was elegant or chic. Do you just settle for the ugliness or do you try to come up with an alternative idea?

Backdrops seem to cure most of the problems. Of course there are many different kinds to choose from and you have to pick which one will fit with the look you are trying to achieve. Check out some of these really cool ideas for backdrops that I have found.

Stage Backdrops:
Stage backdrops consist of drapes with many fabrics to choose from and mobile frames that connect to the stage to hold up the drapes. Perfect to put behind a speaker, head table and runways

Sheer Drapes:
Can be used to hide unpleasant looking walls or give your room a airy feel to it.

Vintage Ribbon Backdrop:
Which can be made out of any stylish ribbon to match the decor of your event.You can mix and match your ribbons.Just have fun picking out different textures and seeing what will be a hit.

When planning your next event,consider trying out a backdrop and see how it transform the room.
