I found myself counting the number of baby shower invitations I've received over the summer when it occured to me, "Sunday Funday" had taken on a different meaning. Instead of indulging in bottmless mimosa's and brunch on Saturday mornings, I was shopping for pampers and baby books. All this excitement got me considering just how joyous baby showers are, even in the beginning stages.
A baby shower is like planning any other party: You need a theme that's decorous and every detail must inspire the concept. Cohesion is key!
Los Angeles based event decorator, Dawnielle Ware created this 'Little Gentleman' motif in celebration of Emily McKnight's little bundle of joy.
She incorporated various prints and patterns using vibrant colors, orange and blue, paired with crisp, contrasting colors, black and white throughout the space. Stacked building blocks spelled out 'baby' at the backyard entrance where a designated table for gifts and cards stood, letting guests know they've made it to the right place. Tons of balloons, fresh flowers and decadent desserts made their way to every table.
While the party was all about surrounding the mommy-to-be with love and support as her pregnancy approaches its end, it was really the cake that stole the show. And bite-sized was the name of the game at this party: mini sweet potatoe pies, cookies in the shape of baby tuxedos and brightly colored candies gave guests a sugar rush to last through the baby shower games. All in all, it was light and fun and the decorations were executed perfectly.
