Heather’s Baby Shower, Balboa Bay Club



Welcome to Heather Rae El Moussa’s winter wonderland! When Heather asked us to plan her shower, we of course squealed with excitement! We were honored to plan she and Tarek’s wedding and now to be a part of their next chapter, celebrating their baby boy just had us over the moon! Heather told our designer, Gia that she wanted a dreamy winter inspired shower filled with snowflakes and blue hues so Gia set out to do what she does best, create! We had the absolute best creative partners to fulfill Heather’s baby shower dreams. From the delicate custom snowflake place cards to the three absolutely amazing winter inspired cakes by Grace & Honey. Of course vegan – chocolate with peanut butter frosting. The menu included a warm vegan butternut squash soup, a yummy seasonal waldorf salad and vegan bolognaise. The perfect menu for a chilly afternoon. The bar menu included Heathers favorite (pre-pregnancy) skinny spicy margarita with a Tajin rim and a white sangria with fresh pineapple, mango, peach and kiwi – also nonalcoholic so the mama to be could enjoy! Fun detail, Heather asked all of her guests to wear white, blue or silver and they ALL understood the assignment! We totally encourage this idea as it really just creates the most cohesive setting for photographs and when a guest walks in the room! Love love loved that idea! We are SOOO excited for Heather, Tarek, Taylor & Braydon’s next chapter. This baby boy is already so blessed! Congratulations to the El Moussas!
