Bengals Baby Sip & See | Customer Feature

Share To:

Our very talented friend, Christina Christian, party + event stylist shared this gorgeous Sip & See with us and we had to share! Christina is one of our favorite customers and we love how she used our white cake stands and party supplies for this incredible event to celebrate the arrival of Alaina Shaw, daughter of  Cincinnati Bengals player, Josh Shaw. So amazing! Oh how I would love to style a party for Tom & Gisele.

From Christina…

As a true football mom, you can imagine my excitement about the opportunity to style a Bengals themed sip and see for NFL’s Josh Shaw of the Cincinnati Bengals and his fiancé. Initially the challenge was creating an atmosphere which embraced the orange and black Cincinnati Bengals colors while keeping it chic and elegant. Instead of focusing so much on the orange and black, I stuck with using mainly white for a simple clean look. The design process came to life with the adorable logo by graphic designer Kelly Rust, which was included on each element of the décor including the invitations, canvas and pillows from Tiny Prints. I selected the beautiful floral from Two Little Buds which softened the look even more. This time of year is best for an outside event especially with the amazing view the Shaw’s home has of the surrounding landscape. The sweets + eats table was garnished in floral and décor. It included signature Cincinnati desserts from the most popular bakers around and mini bites by Ray Ball, such as homemade Sweet Potato Fries and turkey burgers. It was such a pleasure to share this experience with the Shaw family. The beautiful day was captured by Jonathan Gibson photography. Everything was just as perfect as little Alaina.

Such gorgeous and delicious details, right? Beautiful job, Christina! You are simply amazing!
