For her sister’s first baby, Jessica Ludwig of The Bake Boutique styled and baked all of the beautiful desserts to create this Gender Neutral Garden Bunny Baby Shower. I am just loving the whole look of this shower, which would be so perfect for any kind of Springtime party! With tons of bright and fresh desserts, florals and decor, this shower is a sweet welcome for baby and a lovely afternoon for friends and family. :)
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
– Fresh fruit desserts like mini strawberry tarts & individual cake & berry trifles
– Blooms of pink roses, white hydrangeas & lettuce + a floral crown to make mom-to-be feel extra special
– Chalkboard, garden flower & bunny cookies + a bunny silhouette garland & centerpiece
– Sophisticated 3-tier cake decorated with fresh flowers, fondant leaves & a bunny cameo silhouette
PARTY DETAILS as told by Jessica…
My sister decided to wait until her first child was born to know the gender. As you can only imagine, the anticipation has been killing us! When I found out that she was pregnant, I immediately started looking through Pinterest and blogs to come up with the perfect theme. I didn’t want to go with the traditional yellow and green that you so commonly see for gender neutral parties, I wanted to choose a theme that you don’t see very often, bunnies.
I designed the invitations using the Mixbook blank canvas editorial feature. Mixbook is fabulous, all the stickers and pages that you would find in a scrapbook store minus the cutting, gluing and mess — the wonders of technology!
I would say the main focus for the party was the floral pieces and the dessert bar. I, by trade, am a cake decorator. Dessert bars are such a great way to create a show-stopping display and provide little bite-sized desserts for all the ladies watching their waistline. My sister-in-law is a florist by hobby. She has a keen eye for design and is a little bit of a perfectionist, just the right combination to arrange glorious flower displays. The urn centerpiece was definitely the talk of the party, it’s just gorgeous!
We also wanted mommy-to-be to feel beautiful and special for her baby’s shower, so a friend styled her hair and applied her make-up and we completed her look with a pretty floral crown. One hot momma!
