Berry Sweet Shower Theme {Inspiration Board & Party Ideas}

Quick Jump To » Comments

berry sweet girl baby shower

Here’s a peek at the inspiration board for a baby shower I’m styling in November. As you can probably guess, mom-to-be is having a girl! Chocolate-dipped strawberries and a pink & red palette were requested for the event, so I’m tentatively calling this theme “Berry Sweet“.

Pictured at top: Camellia Tissue Paper Pom Set; Boughs of Whimsy gift wrap (the “inspiration piece” for the theme / will be used throughout the party); Rectangle Mod Pink/Red & Red Disc beaded curtains (for table runners &  decorative accents), pink drinks with YUM! Stirrers; cupcakes by Whitney Burke; and sparkling Pomegranate Champagne Cocktails.

Last but not least, here’s a peek at the venue – Catch restaurant at the Casa del Mar hotel in Santa Monica. Pretty sweet, right?! (pun intented)

P.S. This theme would work great for a bridal shower or birthday party too! (Just swap out the word “BABY” in the signage with “BRIDE” or the the birthday girl’s name.)

P.S.S. The font used for “BERRY SWEET” and “BABY” is called “JFFerrule“.

  1. This is a really cool theme, I love those colors too – red’s my absolute favorite color! I’m sure everything will look fantastic.

    This looks adorable! Where did you get the graphic that holds the words ‘decorative accents’, signature patterns’, ‘Baby’, ‘The Venue’ ?

    How sweet!
    My mom, best friend, and I are planning my shower for November (I’m such a control freak- I HAVE to be involved).
    Where did you get the pink metallic vases? They only have bronze ones at Michaels.
    Can you paint them?

  14. melissa i says:

    Wow – your shower plans combined with that venue are going to be FANTASTIC!! Cannot wait to see the final presentation!

    Hi Erin –

    I purchased the metallic pink vases at a local floral supply store last year that no longer carries them, but I do think you could copy this look using metallic paint or even by just covering the vase with metallic gift wrap.

    However, one of my readers did some investigating when she saw them used in an earlier post I did on a different baby shower, and you might find this helpful:

    Thanks for responding to the post. After a little reseach from the information everyone provide…I found them! They are a wholesaler that seller to florist but they were very open to selling directly to me….I hope everyone has a wonderful party!

  17. Down Pillow says:

    So many pretty details :) I really like the table accent arrangements & the branch with flowers piece.

  18. Brandy says:

    Hi Jen,

    I have a random question for you. I am throwing a baby shower at my house this week. My home is decorated for Halloween already. Do you think I should take the decor down so it doesn’t clash with the baby girl theme?
    I would love to hear your opinion. Thanks!

  19. jenn s. says:

    Hi Brandy –

    Is there a way you could tie the 2 themes together – for example, maybe incorporating some orange into your shower theme to match the orange in the decorations? Or putting pink “Lil’ Pumpkin” signs next to pumpkin arrangements, etc…

    In general I usually try to make sure that at least the main area where the party is doesn’t clash with the “surroundings” – so I’ll do things like temporarily swap out throw pillows or cover framed prints with decorative paper that matches the party in the specific room where it’s being held.

    I don’t think you need to worry about taking everything down, just use your best judgement for the party areas… for example it’s probably best not to have skeletons, cobwebs, & other scary things next to the “baby girl” decor ;)

  20. jenn s. says:

    Hi Kim –
    I usually look for invitations all over the web – or create them myself since my background is in graphic design :)

    I’ll definitely bookmark your website for future reference too – thanks!

  22. Brandy says:

    Jen,

    Thank you for responding to my question. I love your idea about bringing in the orange. I have worked on a few things tying the orange in and it is BEAUTIFUL!
    Thank you again for another brillant idea.

  23. jenn s. says:

    So happy to hear that, Brandy! Good luck with the shower! :)

  24. Rachel says:

    That’s beautiful! I love seeing your inspiration boards and then the finished party later. The process is so inspiring! Thanks so much, I’ll be linking to this.

  25. Jenin says:

    Wow, that looks lovely. I love red & pink together, makes a really beautiful combination. You just gave me a bit of inspiration! Good luck, can’t wait to see how fabulous it turns out.

    Hi Jen,

    I am in love with this baby shower theme… is there a way that you can create an invitation and the labels for my baby shower? I would have tried to do something similar but am late planning the baby shower and since you already have the designs I guess it will be easier..

    Can you please email me with your availability to design them.. I will only need the digital files because I can print them myself… Hope to hear from you soon!!!

    • jenn s. says:

      Hi Diana –

      I’m actually launching a small etsy shop on Monday so that we can accomodate these types of requests! It will be populated slowly but I’ll make sure that this theme is one of the ones that goes up on Monday so that you can order all the different pieces that you need! :)

      Cheers,
      Jenn

  31. This looks great. I love the party theme.

  32. […] now going through all the images from the Berry Sweet Baby Shower that I styled a couple weeks ago (see inspiration board here) and am planning to do a full recap soon, but I couldn’t resist posting a little sneak peek […]

  33. Does anyone know where I could get those branches with the coloured leaves? Myers?
