Show Me Your Mumu’s sweetheart, Cologne (co-owner + designer at one of our fave brands) is welcoming a little babe into the world! She, her husband, and all of her (well-dressed) pals showered the anticipated little one in true ‘Mu’ fashion: tons of decadent bites, a fun + funky denim-clad lounge, and seriously STYLIN’ frocks. You might actually recognize Cologne + Sam — we shared their 70s-Inspired Kauai Wedding several years back as well as her Malibu Barbie Bridal Shower! We love following a couple through all the fun stages of life. :)
Are you or one of your besties expecting a tiny babe in the near future? We’re giving you all the design + décor details to create a similar style for the shower! Let’s take a peek at the photos captured by Fallon Wilson…
P.S. Show Me Your Mumu recently launched a maternity line brimming with an array of darling attire! Too cute!
Going for a sort of “by the seaside meets afternoon spritz” feeling, they channeled the beaches + design of the Italian Riviera.
Created just for the occasion, Cologne is ROCKING their new Honey Bun Tie Dress in Vintage Ruffle Lace Cream.
How darling is this seaside-inspired lounge? To create a similar look for your own party (or even just backyard) we’ve pulled a few of our fave pieces:
To go with the Riviera theme, they had an Aperol Spritz + rosé bar, oysters, and an Italian desert pastry bar.
Cologne + Sam invited all their friends and fam, and wanted to make sure the day was fun for everyone. So, they included games where everyone could guess the baby’s birth date + weight! She shares: You obviously have to wait to announce the winner, but it’s a fun interactive game that boys like too.
To bring those beachy vibes to the backyard, the guests were encouraged to rock nautical stripes or white (along with some denim + tropical prints sprinkled in, for good measure).
It doesn’t come as any surprise that everyone was dressed in adorable Mumu garments! Dig these looks as much as us? You can find some of the styles below:
ALL about that chambray!
The Delicious Bites
Holy cannoli!! Doesn’t this look delightful?
So stinkin’ CUTE! They really brought the Italian Riviera vibes to the backyard. Well done, team Mumu!
What has inspired you the most when planning for the baby?
I am inspired by all my friends who just became mamas! Having a great support group of pregnant friends and new moms has been SO helpful in planning for a baby. Especially with Cammy (her partner at SMYM) just having little Magnolia a month ago… she has given me so much good info, I don’t know what I would do without her!
We asked Cologne what she’s most looking forward to about becoming a mama… she shares:
There is SO much excitement! I can’t wait to see my husband with a daughter. It is going to explode my heart! I am looking forward to spending more time at home with my husband and baby. I am usually so busy and have a crazy schedule, so I think it will be a really nice change for me to be forced to stay put for a while! And I just can’t wait to meet her and fall in love!
Congratulations, Cologne + Sam!!
