An adorable Mini Cooper-themed baby shower for who else?  Baby boy Cooper who’s on the way!

Up and coming Phoenix boutique party planner Ricki Uster designed this party thrown at Heidi O’Brien’s home, owner of Heidi Boutique.  It was a co-ed baby shower for Cooper’s star parents – an Arizona Channel 3 news anchor and former hockey player.

The colors and details were delightful and so fun to capture.  Congratulations to the new mom and dad and congratulations to Ricki who threw an awesome shower.


The little shot glasses of dessert are vanilla milkshakes from McDonald’s with green food coloring, an idea Ricki proudly declared she borrowed (as well as the shot glasses) from friend Arizona Republic reporter Jaimee Rose, the real-life Martha Stewart of the Valley.

Diana Elizabeth has an obsession with paper products.  She’s one of those “paper girls” and has a box full of greeting cards she’s collected and even has Post-It notes on boxed greetings to make sure that no recipient receives the same card because that’s just not acceptable!
