A Mena-Inspired Moroccan Baby Shower

Written by guest blogger Erin Loechner

When I first spotted Graco’s SnugRide Click Connect 40, it wasn’t the [genius!] functionality I was drawn to – it was the design. That adorable Mena pattern caught my eye and grabbed my attention enough to read about all of the other elements, from safety features to groundbreaking usability. And in honor of my car seat’s beautiful pattern and design, I thought it might be fun to create a baby shower inspired by the Mena fashion itself.

Because the Mena felt very ornamental in detail, I created a baby shower inspired by the North African country of Morocco. Complete with aged metallics, ornate textures and patterns adorned in pink and purple hues, this virtual baby shower is a beauty to behold – much like the Mena itself! Enjoy links to party decor, furnishings and refreshments on our Pinterest page here, and may you find as much inspiration in your baby’s car seat as I have in mine!
