Alexa Larberg Party Co. brought the biblical classic of Noah and his Ark to life by hosting this baby shower for a first-time mother expecting twins!
Not one detail was lost at this beautiful party celebrating an expectant mother and her soon-to-be pair! Enter the colorful world of Noah’s Ark with a warm welcome from some furry friends and a balloon-arch rainbow inviting guests into the house of sunshine. Inside there was a grazing table for guests to enjoy under an installed art cloud, representing the floods of rain described during the biblical epic. The cake table with florals incorporated earthy hues of blue while the “mud bath” with fruit and fondue chocolate satisfied each guest's sweet tooth. Outside you’ll find a recurring emblem displaying a “two by two” graphic reminding guests that all good things come in pairs. Don’t forget your umbrella! Guests got to leave with umbrellas of their own and view umbrella bouquets floating in the pool, sealing the deal of the theme with the details. Tablescapes included custom Noah’s Ark tablecloths, nursery rhyme pictionary, and specially-made cookies with animals seen throughout the party. Thought that was enough? Of course not! Huge animal statues along with colorful balloons and a backdrop made for the perfect photo station. Lastly, nothing says “baby shower” like diaper pong, which guests could play outdoors in the midst of the beautiful scenery around them. This party took a story of faith and made it fun through detailed design, thoughtful planning, and creative implementation. This party is wonderful for anyone looking to celebrate a pair of incoming blessings and their devout family!
