My June Bloom Baby Shower

Our June Bloom baby shower which was thrown by my mom and sisters, has been one of the most special days of pregnancy for me. It felt so incredible to be able to celebrate the joy of our little girl with dear friends and family. While I was sad that some of my family and best friends weren’t able to come, I still felt surrounded by love and was overwhelmed with how kind and giving everyone was. I had the best day and I don’t think that giant smile ever left my face.

There were tons of little details my beautiful ladies put into this baby shower and it was a real labor of LOVE! Literally, everything was handmade – from the food to the diaper cakes to that luscious, green garden boxwood backdrop. Here is a breakdown of all the details and some photos!


To my mom, the most important thing is ensuring every single guest is well-fed (if not overfed!). Not pictured below, but she made two Pakistani specialty dishes: biryani (a fragrant melange of rice and meat) and haleem (a slow-cooked delicacy made with wheat, lentils and meat), all for 90 people! Can you imagine cooking for that many people? I can hardly host a party for more than five! Pictured below were some of the appetizers made by my sister which included veggie bundles wrapped in twine, fruit kebabs, and cheese and tomato windmills.


I absolutely fell in love with this Free People ‘Sunset’ two piece maxi set the second I laid eyes on it. It was everything I wanted, the cream color with lace detailing across the neck and throughout the skirt was just ethereal and so in theme. This flower crown from Amazon was also the most perfect touch to complete the outfit; what I liked about it was it was made out of a material that could easily bend and mold to the shape of my head! Heels were from Tony Bianco, though I must admit I slipped into my Birkenstocks 3/4 of the way in. My makeup was done by a lovely lady at Sephora inside the Stoneridge Mall and I got a fresh blowout by Arrielle Dawn at Tribez Salon in Blackhawk.


The biggest hit at the party was this lush grasswood backdrop created by Aneela Khan (not your vendor ;-P). It was the perfect touch to go with the June Bloom theme. I adored every element incorporated in this setup, and I also realized I could never have such a creative bone in me, so I will stick to fashion haha! In addition to the backdrop, she also handmade every single part of the dip-dyed emerald, earthy green garland backdrop made from more than 300 coffee filters! Sheer perfection. The tables were adorned with diaper cake centerpieces were beyond darling, and rather practical because you better believe I will use each and every diaper available at my fingertips! Lastly, the guest book for our dear friends and family to write sweet notes and bits of advice is something we will cherish for years.


Honey is a delicious natural sweetener that can do your body a world of good. From indigestion and heartburn to sore throats and wounds, it can treat many conditions. For me, it was one of the more soothing and relaxing things I had throughout my pregnancy so I wanted everyone to go home with a little favor they didn’t necessarily have to throw away, but could use practically in any which case. Super cute and yummy, right?!


Peep these precious sweets! Homemade chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate dipped Oreos made by my cuzzo who flew from out East! The darling cake pops were made by baker extraordinaire and one of my favorite people ever – Maha Syed! Cake and cupcakes were made by an East Bay vendor, Jenn’s Cupcakes & Parties.


Captured by the absolutely lovely Bay Area photographer, Laurel Zwemmer. She has a great artistic eye and is a dream to work with; she is very personable and gets to know everyone around her! She captured all our special moments wand then some (maternity shoot photos coming soon!!).
