Event Design: Chic Butter Yellow & Pink Baby Shower

One of our in-laws was hosting a baby shower for her daughter-in-law Margie. She called me asking for my help with the decor. I was delighted to help out! We didn't have much time so I quickly got started. I found these gorgeous butter yellow and soft pink linens from La Tavola that I knew I had to use. We also brought in white chivari chairs that paired nicely with the rest of the d├ęcor and added chicness to the event. I went to the wholesale flower mart and put together the centerpieces myself in vintage milk glass vases that I had from a past event. The flowers were a mix of hydrangeas, dusty miller, pink peonies, butter yellow garden roses, and white David Austin roses that smelled divine! I’m kind of obsessed with this combination of flowers.
 
For the favors, we filled these adorable boxes that I found on etsy with Jordon almonds and placed them on each person’s place setting. As a little activity, guests got to guess the birth date, length, and weight of the baby and write their predictions on a little onsie. They were then displayed on a cork board with mini clothespins. Margie’s friends also purchased a bunch of onsies and bibs for people to decorate with puff paint.

The dessert table was a hit, yum! I punched out pink, yellow, and grey circles and attached them to a really thin string and hung them behind the dessert table to create a backdrop. I also added a onsie banner to the front of the table. The cake was a 2 tier bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes (LOVE that place). The macaroons and shot glasses were provided by Sweet Tooth Confections. I displayed all the desserts on white footed platters and added little labels. Congrats Margie, I wish you a quick and easy delivery. I can’t wait to meet her!

Fun Fact: Margie was on the US Water Polo team and participated in the Athens Olympics along with other national competitions. How cool is that!?
