The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi has never been known for being understated, and we saw more evidence of her vivacious personality and style this weekend at her over-the-top baby shower. (ICYMI: Gretchen is having a baby girl with Slade Smiley, and they've already named her Skylar Gray.)
Held at the Laguna Beach venue Seven 7 Seven, the event was on-par with most weddings! Seriously, it was the epitome of #extra. How so? Well, there was the mile-long pink carpet that guests entered on... and the humongous faux flower photo opp wall... and a white dance floor customized with "Baby Smiley" on it.
Also present: A cigar-rolling station, overflowing floral table runners, a disco ball, and much, much, much more. See all of the décor highlights below and catch up on RHOC here!
The floral backdrop wall used for photo ops at the party was provided by Mahi Khoshbin Rehan of Flower Backdrop Rentals, while the stunning flower arrangements were by Nebella Floral Concepts and the balloon installations were from The Balloon Box.
Held under a tent, the reception featured glass-and-brass tables, gorgeous floral table runners, a mirrored disco ball, towering floral arrangements, and a dance floor.
Every event designer knows it’s all the details, and this was never truer than at Gretchen’s baby shower. Case in point: Glittery baby booties housed in a crystal-encrusted box! A cigar-making station for the gents at the party! A multi-tiered grazing table with flowers galore!
Guests entered the party via huge pink carpet, and Gretchen and Slade danced in front of guests… with a little help from a fog machine.
