Yellow Baby Shower

A Baby shower is a time to spoil the mother-to-be. It’s a time to celebrate life and family, and in fact, these days it’s not uncommon to have a styled  baby shower, especially if the parents-to-be have a large family or several close friends. The planning of a baby shower can be an enormous job as it involves a lot of planning.Sometimes the hardest job is to come up with a theme and execute it well. The theme for the baby shower serves as inspiration for decorations and games, invitations, favours and even the food. – See more at: http://myperfectevent.com.au/baby-shower/#sthash.b3Wm6iqN.dpuf

The theme for this Melbourne baby shower was an elegant high tea afternoon brunch. The color scheme was yellow, gray and white. It was the perfect way to style for a gender neutral baby shower, whilst adding a splash of color to the room by using yellow.

The baby shower styling was based on a typical high tea event. There were fine china teacups and saucers complete with a silver teapot. Delicious cupcakes, sponge cakes filled with cream and strawberries, not to mention the macaroons and yellow jelly slice filled the dining table.

The color scheme was incorporated on the mini milk bottles with yellow and white straws and tri colored labels on the milk bottles. The client’s existing yellow and orange floral canvas created a colorful and dynamic backdrop for the baby shower drinks station.

A mini lolly buffet was also setup for guests to help themselves during the afternoon. Yellow and white-stripped lolly bags were pre-filled for the guests to take home. The grand mothers enjoyed the lolly buffet just as much as the younger kids.

Both tulle and paper poms hung from the ceiling and also outdoors. This helped lead the guests from outdoors into the lounge and dining rooms where the baby shower was being held. The eye-catching feature of the baby shower styling was large, free standing, gold painted BABY letters. When the guests were at the dining table, the BABY letters were just outside the window, creating a fun backdrop.

The mother-to-be didn’t want typical baby shower games. So we organized for the guests to write up some keep-sake cards. One card asked the guests to write a wish for the new baby. Another card allowed the guests to guess when the baby would be born and if it would be a baby boy or a baby girl. The cards were great fun and when completed, they were pinned up on the wall and became a part of the theme and styling for the baby shower. The mother-to-be now has a collection of wonderful wishes to include in the baby’s album for years’ to come.
