Rock star families deserve rock star baby showers. Michelle and Mike Gillette (Michael James of Flashbulb Fires) are expecting their first child in December. To welcome the new baby, their friends threw a baby shower fit for celebrities. Held at The Beauty Bar in Denver, this shower blew away all the traditions and created a new twist to this right of passage event. Guests not only celebrated the baby, but also the two people who were bringing that baby into the world – the parents.
The party was coordinated by four of M & M’s close friends, Melissa Brenkert, Angela Coleman, Ty Colman, and Nilufer Soucek, in conjunction with Michelle’s parents, Susan and Stan Johnson. Since Michelle works as an event professional at the Brown Palace Hotel and Spa in Denver, the planners wanted to be sure that all details were perfect.
The cake from The Makery looked and tasted super delicious. Since I am on a diet, I could only eat couple of slices…What? A girl has got to eat 😀 The yummy cake included a damask pattern to coordinate with the floral designs.
Months prior, Michelle and Mike had won a party package at an auction. Using the event professionals who were part of that package as a base, the planners set out to create a talk-of-the-town baby shower. From a photobooth to a strolling magician, no detail was left out. As the guests arrived, they enjoyed an extensive bar (including a tequila tasting) and music from DJ RIPM . They had photos taken in the Photobooth by Shutterbooth, and moi. Guests also enjoyed magic provided by Gregg Tobo of Astonishing Productions.
Guests toasted drinks, sharing excitement for the growing family; they danced, celebrating a change of life; and they cried, showing love for their beloved Michelle and Mike.
I can’t wait to see the baby in person! With so much personality his parents have, this little beauty will be something spectacular! Congratulations one more time M&M, you guys are too cute and too sweet, just like M&Ms 😀
