A "Little Gentleman" Baby Shower: Washington DC

It is said that "no idea is original."
However, it is also true that some ideas are more original than others!

This was Savvy's goal when planning a thoughtful, intimate baby shower brunch for a soon-to-be mommy of a little boy!

The goal was a shower that would be:
1. memorable
2. meaningful
3. non-trite

Hence, the "little gentleman" concept was born!
In putting together the little gentleman baby shower, Savvy sought to bring to life to the values, ideas and character that define the modern-day gentleman.

What goes into raising a proper, thoughtful young man?
What values would be desirable for him to have?
What is important in raising a child with good manners and sense of chivalry?

Those were questions that this urban-chic shower brunch-- hosted at a U Street bistro in the heart of Washington DC--were planned around.

*Non-traditional shower color scheme: we used red/chocolate/black/argyle/stripes/polkadots as our backdrop.
*Themed Dessert Bar, by Savvy, as favors
*No games: In lieu of 'traditional' baby shower games, guests were asked to fill in "Advice Cards" for the coming child that were collected and placed into a TIME CAPSULE intended to be presented to the boy on his 16th birthday. Guests were specifically asked to impart advice that they would share with a teenage boy

we mustache you to be a good boy!

Married: Kristin + Jake

Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous!
Winter glam took over the Club at Key Center in Cleveland last weekend as Kristin and Jake--Cleveland natives but now living in Florida--were married on what was quite possibly one of the most frigid days of the year! Kristin was a dream bride for us to work with (and basically one of the sweetest, most thoughtful people I've ever met). She told us what she was looking for and 100% trusted us to do what we do best:) Below, the results. Enjoy! All professional photos by Corey Ann Photography--

Gwen + Endion: Engagement Party

Check out these images from the engagement party of one of my fabulous 2010 couples, Gwen and Endion! Held at Kan Zaman, a vibrant Northeast Ohio Middle Eastern restaurant, there was good food, music, and even a belly dancer as entertainment.
Savvy did decor and provided some personalized elements including a 'couple's quiz' that was at each table setting, and mini white zin wine favors with custom hang tags. We also did some pretty and cost-effective decor using candles, candle sticks and...fuschia, silver and gold christmas ornaments!! The entire vibe totally reflected the couple--who are so fun! Look for their summer wedding next year, and enjoy!
