If you wake up every morning and turn your TV to the TODAY show, then you know who Savannah Guthrie is, and you know she’s expecting her first baby!
On June 30, the women of TODAY hosted Savannah’s Baby Shower at the Glass Houses in New York city with the theme, ”Extra! Extra! Read All About It!” Keeping it unisex, the party was layered in a yellow and grey color scheme, with an emphasis on books, letters, and newspaper. Guests included co-workers from TODAY, friends and family, and her husband, Mike Feldman.
With styling by Minted and Rock Paper Scissors Events, personal touches at Savannah’s shower included: ‘Savannah’ spelled out with Uncle Goose blocks under a lucite doughnut and pretzel display, customized pencils that read #showersavannah, Minted trophy jars filled with yellow duckies, and Minted drink straws with “Oh Baby!” flags in lemonade cocktails served on trays, which were lined with the covers of well-known children’s books.In addition to décor, furniture was contributed by Taylor Creative, Inc., flowers were donated by Blossom and Branch, and catering by Peter Callahan.
Guests who attended the shower were asked to bring one unwrapped book for Savannah’s baby and one for a deserving child, which were then displayed on a bookshelf. From playing a personalized crossword puzzle, to decorating Burt’s Bees onesies for the baby-on-the-way, Savannah and her guests were well entertained throughout.
Get Savannah’s shower look, including banners, a photo backdrop, unique gift tags, and more! Whether it’s games and prizes, sweets and treats, and packed goody bags, letting friends and family take a little bit of your shower home with them is an easy way to let everyone share in on the fun (even days after your shower!). Savannah’s guests all took home a Minted notebook, Sprinkles cupcakes individually wrapped with “Extra! Extra! printed on top, Rita Hazan hair gloss and Hanky Panky undies in pink and in blue!
