The Most Adorable Baby Shower Idea

About 3 years ago I was looking for someone to help me with my extremely hectic lifestyle.  I decided to put out an ad on Craigslist and who would have ever thought… but that is how I found Dana Valeria Cramer Rubio. Dana worked with me for 3 years and taught me so much about balance, pampering myself, not stressing the small things, the list goes on… She is extremely creative, talented and was a huge part of my growth and of course Jillian Harris Design. She became more than an assistant, she is now a life long friend of mine. And then one day she told me she was pregnant … although I was EXTREMELY ecstatic for her … there was a part of me that was devastated because I knew she was going to be leaving me!!!

Dana gave birth to baby Luna on December 9, 2014. I was trying to think of an amazing way of how I could thank her for everything that she did for me….SOOOOO I held a baby shower for her!! We tried to put it together in December but with all of my current projects going on we literally had NO extra time to plan or even attend a party. I knew I wanted it to be extra special for her but I was at a loss for ideas….that’s when I stumbled upon Countdown Events. We met up and talked about Dana, Phil and Luna, their style, the budget etc. THREE WEEKS LATER…the most gorgeous Baby Shower that I’ve ever been to was produced. Although I gave my ideas and my input, I wish that I could take the credit for this masterpiece. Soha and Jenny were the most professional people I have ever worked with. I kept asking what I could do to help and they kept brushing me off and took care of every single detail with what seemed like ease … although I’m sure it wasn’t easy. They made throwing a Kardashian style (but much classier) party look like a piece of cake. For someone who likes to plan parties … I am forever changed in knowing that there are people like Countdown Events that can help me plan special events for the people in my life that mean the most. In fact, I am already planning my next party with them … details to come soon!!!

I am so thankful that I was able to apart of one of the most beautiful celebrations that I’ve ever been to. Words can’t describe how thankful I am to everyone who helped put everything together with such short notice. It really was a dream come true…

The list of people that we couldn’t have done this without:
CountDown Events – for planning the most amazing baby shower ever
The Loden Hotel – for the GORGEOUS Halo Penthouse Suite
Celsia Florals – for the amazing floral arrangements
Violet Grey Creative –  stationery – tent cards, stars, and drink tags
Ganache Patisserie –  treats – chocolates and meringues
Soirette – cake, cookies, and macarons
Beta 5 Chocolates – treats – the most amazing cream pufs I’ve ever had
Petite Puf – cotton candy to take away
Archimallows – the gorgeous decorative marshmallows – almost too pretty to eat!
Upright Decor – candles and linen
The Cross decor and design – all of the gorgeous decor as always
Confetti and Co – large white balloons + custom “baby luna” cake topper
Old Joy – Gift box for Dana
Happy spritz – take home gifts for everyone
Ainsley Rose – thank you for capturing all of these beautiful memories in pictures for us to share.
Kaitlin Hargreaves – hair and makeup…for making Dana look even more beautiful then she already is

Last but not least, we want to wish a ver very Happy 100 Days Old to the lovely Luna. I can’t wait to watch you grow up and watch you be just as amazing as your mother. We love you to the moon and back!!!!
