Tiffany's baby Shower - it's a boy AND it's a girl!

They say lightning never strikes twice, but we’re feeling an extra bolt of good fortune as we get ready to celebrate a 2nd set of Layla Grayce twins. Nearly four years after Wendy Estes had identical twin girls, her Layla Grayce co-owner and good friend Tiffany Harris has extra big news of her own – she is expecting a boy and girl this fall! Wendy teamed up with Sara Westbrook of Sara Westbrook Designs (formerly with One Charming Party) and stylist Samantha Pothier for a big bash to shower Tiffany with blessings and baby basics for the big arrival.

The newsprint inspired theme had vintage elements with a modern twist, artfully incorporated into the smallest of details: 1. A vintage typeset frame with “T” for Tiffany accents the buffet table along with vintage inspired candlesticks and hydrangeas arranged in galvanized buckets. 2. An antique typewriter displays a welcome letter to guests, inviting them to partake in homemade caramels and take a name tag. 3.Vintage newspapers with a baby theme crossword puzzle and cleverly worded headlines entertained guests (plates resting on velvet trimmed napkins from Pom Pom at Home). 4. Name tags printed with typewriter font are arranged alphabetically by the entryway and adhere with diagonal black and white striped tape. 5. Vintage newsprint wrapped hydrangeas tied in jute string nestled into numbered crates from Gabby are displayed throughout the party. Inspired by newsstands from days of old when flowers were often sold wrapped in newsprint, they served a dual purpose of party decoration and post-party favors for guests. Photography: Tara Rochelle

Delish to the eyes and palate: 1. Homemade caramels wrapped in vintage newsprint wax paper. 2. Carrot cake cupcakes with toppers from South Pasadena’s Heirloom Bakery. 3. The dessert table showcases a lemon cake filled with lemon curd and cream cheese frosting (designed by Sara Westbrook and Sam Pothier) flanked by carrot cake cupcakes displayed on Aidan Gray Metal plate stands and hostess style old-fashioned cupcakes. 4 & 5. A savory lunch from Heirloom Bakery highlights sliced Panini sandwiches resting on vintage newsprint waxed paper. A printed menu with gray and white pennant flags hangs over each buffet table.

Tiffany’s ties to Layla Grayce are so much a part of her that incorporating them into the shower was a must: 1. Mixing elements made a modern statement with Aidan Gray decorative pillows scattered along a rustic bench juxtaposed with Eloquence gold trimmed chairs. A galvanized side table by Aidan Gray topped with the Grenich Urn table lamp gave this vintage inspired shower an edge. 2. Simple hydrangeas in old fashioned water bottles get wrapped in white cotton and burlap, secured with a white diaper pin. 3. Newsprint and decorative papers get pleated and folded to create decorative rosettes and swags. 4. Letterpress flash cards hang overhead. 5. An industrial chic Jamie Young steam punk lamp helps set the mood as guests arrive. 6. Hydrangeas displayed in numbered crates from Gabby. Photography: Tara Rochelle

The shower was held at a private residence in Pasadena where the black and white awning tied in perfectly to the party theme. Ruffled Audrey tablecloths from Pom Pom at Home add a feminine touch to the dessert and entry tables. Photography: Tara Rochelle

Tiffany never stops, so no wonder we saw lots of wheels in the gifts from her Valco Baby stroller of choice to the motorcycle menagerie of Blabla knit dolls designed by the ladies of Layla Grayce. 1, 2, 3.
