Baby Bey-Z Watch: Baby Shower Alert
Congratulations to Beyonce and Jay-Z on the wonderful news they are about to hire nurses and nannies! No, seriously, congratulations on the pregnancy. What a way to break it to the public - in true music legend style at the MTV Video Music Awards! No lucrative deals with magazines or television channels, just a song and a belly rub. Very cool. It was also nice to see Kanye exercising restraint and not jumping the stage "Yo Beyonce..." Instead he was slapping the Daddy to be on the back in congratulations. So now after all the tabloid specualtion on whether or not they would become parents now it is Bump Watch, especially with how private Beyonce and Jay-Z are, it is going to be a frenzy trying to get photos and interviews over this bubby. A superstar just like Mum and Dad.
When the star couple married, they did so undetected. A private ceremony and reception at their home in New York. Not an easy feat in this day and age and the star status that these two have, it was a great achievement. I assume that the same will go for this pregnancy and birth - which I totally agree with. I have also thought about what the baby shower could possibly be like. For fun I sat down and had a look through the Pink Frosting baby shower ideas and have put together how I think the baby shower would be (and Beyonce if you read this I would be only too happy to help you organise your baby shower!)...
Venue: Marquee on the roof of their lavish New York penthouse (the same location as their wedding)
When: A month out from due date
Time: Start at 3pm and roll into the evening (need the morning with stylists, makeup artists and hair dressers)
Theme: Chic and Sophisticated
Food would be canapes, mocktails, cupcakes and monogrammed macaroons and a candy buffet of all candy buffets.
Flowers - soft pink/ivory roses to symbolise love.
Guests: Gwenyth Paltrow and hubby Chris Martin, Kanye West, Tina and Solange Knowles (with the drama surrounding Beyonce’s father I doubt he would be there), Elton John and David Furnish, Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy, Jamie Foxx, Rhiana – just to name a few!
Decorations: (All from the Pink Frosting website: www.pinkfrosting.com.au)
* Martha Stewart White and Gold Paper Pom Poms (with little diamontes glued in for extra bling).
* French whimsy personalised invitations customised in colour and text just for Bey-Z.
* Antique arcrylic place card frames for more sparkle.
* Baby Wishes envelope keepsake book for cherished memories.
* Glass round hanging candle holders to garden bliss.
* Glass vase table centrepieces with monogram/engraved message.
* Baby shower personalised water bottles perfect for garden soirees.
No doubt Beyonce and Jay-Z would take care of the goodie bags for their guests - their fragrances, albums, clothing lines etc...
It goes without saying that what ever they choose to do, it will be done so with privacy, style, sophistication and lots designer labels and we will all be eagerly awaiting the arrival and photos of their new bubby. So starts the Beyonce Baby Watch!
