West­wood resident Lau­ren and her mom, Mag­gie, wanted a very girly and chic de­sign for the baby shower they were plan­ning to wel­come Lau­ren’s first baby. “They wanted it to be su­per-fem­i­nine and soft,” says event and flo­ral de­signer Tina Lamorte of oh so fab­u­lous.

With a lit­tle girl on the way, a color pal­ette of light pink, ivory and cham­pagne was cho­sen. But­ter­flies and pearls ac­cented the beau­ti­ful gar­den flo­rals placed through­out the party space, and cus­tom tulle-skirted chair cov­ers cov­ered each seat.

The sweets buf­fet – which con­sisted of choco­late-cov­ered straw­ber­ries, hand-dipped pink choco­late-cov­ered Oreos, mini cheese­cake tarts, choco­late-cov­ered pret­zel rods, cake pops and more – was spe­cial be­cause many of the se­lec­tions were hand­made by Mag­gie, the grand­mother-to-be.
