How To Slay Your Baby Shower Cardi B Style This Year
Rapper Cardi B, 25, and hip hop artist Offset, 26, planned an extravagant ‘Bronx Tale’ themed baby shower in Atlanta just weeks before the birth of their baby girl. There is no surprise that Cardi B went all out in planning the baby shower of her first child, as prior she told Rolling Stone “I want a lit baby shower” and I think we can all say that she definitely did the job. It took a crew of 40 people and more than two days to create Cardi B and Offsets baby shower which goes to show the amount of time and effort that went into creating this special day. Cardi tells Rolling Stone “I don’t like baby showers that be at 5 p.m. in the backyard, eating, cooking hors d’oeuvres. Nah…Shit, I might even drink some red wine. Red wine’s healthy, right?” Okurr! Neither do we and that is why we are going to show you how to slay your baby shower Cardi B style! Check out these ways for how to slay your baby shower like Cardi B!
1. Event Planner
Finding a perfect event planner that will make all your baby shower dreams come true is beyond important. Your planner must understand your vision, theme and personal preference so that they can convey exactly what you need for the special day of your bundle of joy. Cardi’s event planner Karleen Roy who worked closely with Michelle Gainey, the event designer from Lemiga Events, described the Bronx Tale theme to Vogueas “a magical and imaginary Bronx land fit for the quintessential baby girl… only this time there is a plot twist in this lavish story: It’s a magical, whimsical land, but for the culture!”
Décor is the next most important element of your baby shower, if you don’t focus on the décor of your baby shower then there is no way that you will slay or create an event as extravagant as Cardi B’s Bronx Tale. The décor of Cardi’s baby shower consisted of a consistent colour theme of pink and white with pink, white and gold balloons and 26,000 pink and white flowers which were provided by C. Wayman Floral & Events, the flowers were sculpted into train subway replicas, animals such as a baby and mother giraffe and a 16 foot floral façade.
