Berry Sweet Shower Theme {Inspiration Board & Party Ideas}

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.

Pictured above: Red and White acrylic drop ornaments; a digital mockup of the table centerpieces (a grapewood branch adorned with oversize flower blooms – real & faux – and paper leaves… might add some crystal ornaments too); Boughs of Whimsy gift wrap; and a few sample elements for the Treat Barpink and red candies and chocolate-dipped strawberries.

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“.

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 ;)

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!

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.

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!!!

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! :)
