They say that expectant mothers have a certain glow, and if Brooklyn Blonde‘s Helena Glazer is any example, it’s definitely true. We’ve had the pleasure of working with Helena before, and when we found out the native New Yorker and stylish Brooklynite had a little one on the way, it gave us the perfect opportunity to break out the party favors and host a breakfast baby shower for her at Freds Madison Avenue.

“It was truly a morning I’ll never forget,” she told us.  “As my good friend put it, ‘How many people will be able to tell their children that they had a shower at Barneys?’”

First things first, Helena made use of our new app launched in conjunction with Connor, which allowed her not only to design and send out invitations, but also to manage the guest list and track RSVPs. She was then able to select all her baby must-haves using Barneys’ gift registry.

With an adorable elephant theme that carried through from the invitations to the menu to the custom cakes created by The Fashion Chef, it was truly an event to remember. Scroll on for a closer look at the festivities and to see the goodies Helena registered for; then check out the Connor App and Barneys Registry to see how they can make your next event a true standout.




Helena was able to create her invitations and track responses thanks to the new Connor Stationery app.

“What makes this app so great,” she says, “is that it’s incredibly easy to use both on the web and on your mobile device and the ability to manage guest lists and check RSVPs could not be any easier.”

Despite being a full nine months pregnant and seconds away from her due date, Helena brought a relaxed polish to the party and had her glow in full effect.

A custom menu from Freds for the event tied into the same theme as the invitations.

“Leave it to Barneys to have a variety of invitations that have an incredibly chic and elevated aesthetic,” she told us. “Not that I’d expect any less!”

Thanks to the gorgeous efforts of The Fashion Chef, the golden elephant theme was even carries through to individual cakes for each of the guests.
