Today’s post will be reflecting on the babyshower I hosted in June 2016 for my sister in law welcoming baby Kiyaan. Though I had only 2 weeks to plan and put this together, I had a lot of fun with this event! We invited some of our closest friends and it was overwhelming to see the amount of good wishes and support pouring in for her journey to single motherhood.
The baby shower location was a complete surprise for my sister in law. She relied heavily on both family dogs for emotional support, and she credits them to helping her stay strong and get through the separation of her marriage. I naturally had to find a beautiful location that would allow and accommodate the pups, and was thrilled when I came across Calamigos Ranch in Malibu that was VERY dog friendly! My favorite part was sending her a surprise invitation that was specifically addressed to Drogo and Snow!
I fell in love with the storybook oasis. We were surrounded by a pond with ducks that were being trailed by their ducklings! The waterfall splashing and live band created the perfect ambience. I loved all the rustic details malibu cafe is comprised of. I decided to go with a Tiffany Blue color scheme mixed with some pink blush florals.
Sareena was asleep for most of the party while I was wearing her in the Tula! So when she was awake everyone tried to grab the chance to hold her. She was a little confused and definitely had a case of stranger anxiety. Look how adorable and stylish she looks though!
It’s true, we love you! You’re an amazing mother to a beautiful baby boy. Kiyaan is lucky to have such a strong, wonderful mom! I’m so happy to be able to call you my sister, Rati Tai 🙂
