As a big fan of theme events, I was so stoked to hear about Nicole Richie’s Wizard of Oz baby shower. The expectant mom (due in January) enjoyed an over-the-rainbow theme complete with A-list guests and Oz-themed games.
You may not have the resources to have celeb planner Mindy Weiss organize your next fete, but with these tips, you can easily throw a classy themed party for a friend, or for fun!
I just did one of these for my Halloween-themed wedding and it was a big hit! You can have a standard candy bar or one tailored to match your theme.
Dorothy check gingham tablecloths, ruby slippers, and Toto pic-nic baskets completed the look for this party! The centerpieces are one of the biggest details in making your “theme” party work, so consider everything from the napkins to the glassware and other accents.
The party also reportedly had a live band playing tunes from the movie as well as a candy lined yellow brick road.
Best of all, for me, was the fact that Richie donated all of her gifts to her new foundation for mother’s in need. This foundation, started with boyfriend and “baby-daddy” Joel Madden,Â is called the Richie-Madden Foundation, which also benefited from this event.
So the next time your BFF is expecting, don’t throw a boring old baby shower…dig deep and get creative for an A-list style shower!
