SO very excited to share this downright fabulous RUSTIC OWLS Baby Shower with you today for a few different reasons: 1.) Let’s start with the obvious… it’s just so darn cute! (without being overly cutesie) 2.) It’s a co-ed celebration, which we still don’t see a whole lot of, so it’s always exciting when these come in… especially when they’re this well-done! And 3.) The lead designer – Kelly of A Savvy Event – is a friend from my childhood hometown – and it’s always fun to showcase the talents of a friend!
So without further adieu, here’s Part 1 of this stylish & DIY-filled soirée… which covers the tables, decorations & drinks station. The food & sweets station will be covered in Part 2 later today.
Now THIS is our kind of royal wedding celebration! We’re truly smitten with all the lovely details in this contemporary British Invasion Bridal Brunch styled by Tanya of Save the Date for Cupcakes and Stefanie of Brooklyn Limestone.
From a gorgeous tablescape featuring stunning floral arrangements displayed in tea tins and vibrant “red poof” napkin rings – to a darling dessert table display filled with charming treats like Union Jack inspired cookies & fudge pops and a 3-tier cake donning a seriously fabulous flower topper – every detail of this theme was so well thought out and resulted in pure party eye candy!

“Sip” back and enjoy this absolutely lovely Modern Pink Tea Party Baby Shower hosted by Abby Capalbo of TRUE Event. The mix of contrasting pinks and brilliant white is not only stunning, but also manages to convey both the sweetness and the excitement of a new baby girl on the way!
The mirrors hung as a backdrop behind the interactive tea bar are genius! Not only are they gorgeous, they also serve to separate the beautiful dessert table located in the background. Absolutely LOVE that idea! The Harney and Sons tea tins used to display flower arrangements – along with splashes of milk glass and paper garlands from Luna Bazaar – give this baby shower the perfect combination of sugar and spice and everything nice…just what modern little girls are made of! *wink*

Who doesn’t love the famously cute Pooh-bear… especially alonside his friends Tiger and Piglet? This first birthday party sweets table – inspired by Winnie The Pooh and designed by Dooby Design Group – has so many darling touches! I especially love the wood bark candy stands, the stylish & modern paper details, and all the sunny yellow accents – from the lemon slices to the yellow-and-white check table cover. So head on into the Hundred Acre Wood for a whimsical & sweet 1st birthday party celebration!

I’m seriously OBSESSED with this adorable, vintage-style Scooter Birthday Party that Laurie of Gallamore West created for her son’s fourth birthday. Every single detail just makes my heart skip a beat!
The details of this party were perfectly designed, from the mini fabric buntings used throughout, to the distressed “Jake” letters adorning the mantel and the simply stylish berry baskets, to the incredibly creative “Sugar Cookie Speed Bumps” and the Scooter Decorating Station. I just can’t get enough of this charming little party. One of my favorite details is the “Build your own Scooter,” that the kids created from cookies and pretzels, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

I seriously think ruffle cakes might be my new favorite thing! There’s something so lovely and feminine about them… making them a perfect addition to sweet occasions like bridal & baby showers.
And speaking of ruffle cakes, check out the beauties starring in this fun & whimsical HAPPY TRAILS Baby Shower created by Katie of Saving Dates. She did such a great job arranging tons of different treats (including cupcake push pops and adorable candy-filled mason jars!) and mixing in decorative elements like hanging pomanders and flowers for a decidedly “springtime” feel. This theme & color palette would work well for summer showers too!
