Charming Yellow & Orange Baby Shower

Yellow and Orange Baby Shower

How about a healthy dose of SUNSHINE to brighten your day? This gorgeous Yellow & Orange Baby Shower from Megan of Blaine Photography is the perfect mix of vintage and modern and is absolutely GLOWING with charming, sunny details!

One of my favorite elements has got to be the baby food jar “vases” embellished with organic crocheted ribbon for a touch of softness, and then of course there are the beautiful flowers themselves, the stunning display of color-coordinating food, the elegant stationery details {which just so happen to be starring one of my very favorite fonts!}, the sweet, homemade “It’s a Girl” banner fashioned from burlap-and-twine, and more…

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Megan…

“The main table was covered in a cotton lace table runner layered over luxurious Italian linen table cloth, with a soft frayed edge. We saved different sizes of food jars for weeks, then wrapped them in organic crocheted ribbons for an added touch of softness. We filled them with bright colored flowers abundant with petals. We filled the jars with tight bundles of orange ranunculus, yellow chrysanthemums, peach roses, wild daisies, and silvery-grey succulents grounded the arrangements. The sandblasted manzanita branches also added a sense of layered texturing, a juxtaposition of hard & soft that added interest and complexity.

Kimmy had one request for her shower: mojitos mocktails! She hasn’t been able to indulge in her cocktail of choice for the past 8 months, so we made a delicious minty mojito mocktail! We also had sangria which tied in the colors of yellow and orange.

Kimmy’s mother’s house provided a beautiful neutral backdrop for the shower, and Kimmy’s mother provided the biggest spread of food imaginable! The food labels were printed on thick, cotton paper.

Guests were thanked with precious woven straw bags filled with lavender seeds to plant and grow!”
