If you’re looking for classic, elegant baby shower ideas, Jacky from Velvet Events has you covered with this gorgeous Blue Baby Shower Brunch. And all of these ideas would translate beautifully to any color palette! I just LOVE the “shower” of pretty parasols hanging from the ceiling… how do you think she got them to hang up there?!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Giant monogram “B” made from blue roses
– Onesie decorating activity with fabrics and paints
– A visit from a local food truck with red velvet chocolate chip pancakes & more
– My favorite details (as mentioned above) – the upside down hanging parasols!

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jacky


When Velvet Events decided to take on a baby shower celebrating Judy Musgrave’s second child, we knew we had to come up something extra special for mom. The birth of a child is a magical moment so we wanted to aim for a bit of a whimsical effect by adding live goldfish to our centerpiece flower arrangements, parasols hung upside down, and baby blue beads raining down from the ceiling. We incorporated bold and soft shades of baby boy blue as our main color and added soft pops of color to create a calm environment for all.

We did make the flower “B” ourselves. Velvet Events specializes in unique designs incorporating DIY projects. Our centerpieces were made of glass fish bowls which contained a gold fish, and adorned with baby blue hydrangeas. Each guest received a square clear box of animal crackers tied with a blue ribbon, which were made and decorated by hand. We also featured a onesie craft table in which each guest had the opportunity to customize their own onesie for baby Joshua.


Our menu was a celebration of good things that come in small bundles. Our dessert table consisted of small bites of homemade ice cream, cookies, watermelon shooters, bites of Crème Brule and mini moon pies. We also teamed up with popular LA food truck The Buttermilk Truck, who pulled up on the premise and served their signature breakfast sandwiches, red velvet chocolate chip pancakes, and cinnamon French toast sticks. Just the right food to satisfy our mom-to-be’s brunch cravings, and of course we can’t forget to mention the Mama Mimosas bar for the guests to wash down their delicious bites.
