Ksenya’s Baby Shower : Madelines Weddings and Events

A couple of weeks ago, my very awesome BFF Michelle, my Mom and my lovely Aunt Eva threw a beautiful baby shower for our sweet little Ksenya at the Hungarian Canadian Cultural Haz (House).  It was GORGEOUSLY decorated by the ever fabulous Madeline’s Weddings & Events!  Michelle had been secretly putting together all the little shower details together with Madeline as a surprise! How awesome is that and how awesome is Michelle!  I am so blessed to have such amazing friends!!  There were so many perfect little details…I loved it all! From the color scheme, to the dessert table, the pink lemonade, the gorgeous pin tuck linens, the awesome wish tree, centerpieces, stationary, chair covers, flowers…it was all PERFECT!!! Ksenya’s wish tree was such a GREAT idea…. I never would have thought of that. I can add all those wishes to her keepsake box and show her when she’s older. 🙂 It will be so special!  I also thought asking guests to self address envelopes was another awesome idea Madeline had since I am now quite busy with a baby.  That will save me time in writing them out later when I send out thank you cards. I loved the personal touch with the 10 Facts about the Bik Family…sooo cute (and sneaky Michelle!). lol  I really really loved all the stationary…well done Madeline!!  I can’t wait to make a scrapbook with everything. The table centerpieces were so simple and beautiful…loved the pink flower vases! Now to the dessert table…

Michelle made these awesome soy milk shots with cookies on top…let me just say that they were sooooooo good! Seriously!! I think I had 4 of them. lol  Ksenya’s Pink Lemonade and Baby Bliss Punch were such a cute idea.  My friend, Edit made those cute little cupcakes and Pam from Cake-ology made the yummy cakettes!  They are the BEST cakettes!! Soo good!  My husband’s cousin’s wife, Krystyna surprised me and made those awesome Ksenya cookies…I love love her cookies.  Thanks so much Krys!! You are awesome!

The shower took place the weekend before Easter so because of that, we held an easter egg hunt for the kids as well as easter egg decorating to keep them busy. 😉  The kids loved it!  My son, Lukyan said that this Easter was the best one yet. lol  Probably because of all the chocolate he got this year. haha

Thank you sooo much Madeline, Jay and Michelle, for doing such an AMAZING job with all decor and details!  The shower was extra special because of all your hard work and details!  It means a lot…from the bottom of my heart!  You are all amazing and I can’t thank you enough!  I can’t wait to show Ksenya all the beautiful photos that Michelle took one day when she grows up. 🙂

Up until the baby shower, I’ve only ever worked with Madeline’s at weddings (seeing as I am a wedding photographer) and I’ve only ever seen fantastic work by them!  Madeline has a great team working for her and the work they do is nothing but the BEST!! If anyone out there is planning a baby shower in the near future….I highly highly recommend Madeline’s!!  So so AMAZING in everything that they do, no matter what kind of event it is!!

Check out all the gorgeous decor photos Michelle took at the shower below!  If you didn’t know, she is an awesome Winnipeg photographer as well!  🙂  Thanks, Michelle, for letting me share the photos with everyone on my blog!  xoxo
