Cue the Confetti Baby Shower Theme

A few weeks ago we gave you a teaser for Brooke’s confetti-themed baby shower here in the office. Here are all the adorable details! Our E-Commerce and Marketing teams worked together to set everything up. We punched confetti in the same colors as the invitation and sprinkled it on the table. We decided to use Topiary Place Card Holders from our sister company, Kate Aspen, to add a pop of green and to hold the food labels. The beautiful blue and white pinwheels were re-purposed after the shower for Brooke’s daughter’s birthday party – how awesome!

We snacked on sweets and gifted Brooke with diapers, lots and lots of diapers for her little guy! We also had fun posing with the decorations!

We chose the “Pickles and Ice Cream” Ice Cream Scoop as a favor because it’s perfect for a Summer baby shower and we mixed in the “Love Beyond Measure” Measuring Spoons because the packaging matched the confetti dots perfectly!

The best part of the shower was the photobooth! We set up a camera and had so much fun watching people pose with all of the fun props! These are the favorites:

Update on Brooke and her little guy: Levi was on on Tuesday, July 16th. Mom and baby are doing well!

A Bathroom Makeover

Aspen Cares is at it again! We introduced Aspen Cares, our community outreach program, in this post. This past week, Aspen Cares worked internally to enhance our workplace community by giving the main ladies’ restroom a makeover. The project, headed by Andrea and Erika, not only beautified the space but it also enhanced the washroom experience. The project was a great bonding experience; men and women from various departments volunteered to roll up their sleeves to help accomplish the project.

The transformation was amazing! The main wall opposite the sinks is now a gallery wall. Adding an accent wall next to the sink area and framing the mirror livened up the space, and new baskets and trashcans really helped with organization. In the stalls, little changes and additions made a big difference! A cabinet was moved in to house extra supplies, the seat covers were finally hung on the wall, toilet paper holders and a new trash can were added to keep the space neat and organized.

The ribbon cutting was so exciting everyone came together to see the reveal of the finished project and ….they loved it!  Now the men in the office want a  bathroom beautification too!  The occasion called for a cupcake celebration – a sweet ending to a week of hard work!

This project truly shows how you can accomplish two great things at the same time: a memorable bonding experience and an enhancement to the work environment. A BIG thank you to the wonderful team of painters and decorators!
