Floral Baby Shower With A French Twist May 13 2017 | BY Gia Bartolome
After many years of trying for our little miracle, I'm beyond excited to announce the birth of my baby girl, Amorelle, and the reason I took a much needed break from Sweet Paper Shop. I've finally found some time in between the nursing and diaper changes to share photos of our co-ed baby shower below. Hosted by my dear parents and attended by close family and friends, we enjoyed a French inspired luncheon adorned with floral touches, shiny gold details and pink hues to welcome the baby girl blooming in my belly. Read on for more details and to see more photos from our shower.
These round paper placemat menus finished in gold foil are a design idea I've been itching to do. Want these for your event? You can order these menus and other custom stationery items in these photos via our custom design services. Macaron favor boxes and gold acrylic "Mama" and "Papa" signs for our place settings match perfectly with the placemat menus. While Gold acrylic tends to be more delicate than wood for lettered signs and cake toppers, it is definitely glam!
Baby shower games can be elegant, too. "Baby Word Unscramble" is much more fun when played on pretty cards. I absolutely adore the miniature gold clothespins guests wore and stole from each other for the popular "Don't Say Baby Out Loud" game.
I didn't have room in the budget for a florist, so I ordered these eucalyptus garlands from a local wholesale flower store to use on the guest tables. With DIY help from my family, we decorated them with fresh pink and white roses before the guests arrived.
A custom backdrop, abundant garland, gold sequin tablecloth, gold cake topper and gold cupcake wraps make a cake table with a small number of desserts much more lush and luxurious. The gold acrylic "Amorelle" sign has to be my favorite item of the shower. A custom name sign makes the perfect addition to any party as well as a beautiful keepsake and nursery decor. Using the same pretty script font type throughout the shower helps to create a consistent look.
Our baby shower was a family friendly event that included the little ones. While adult guests took home macaron favors, the kids received these "Sucre" gable boxes filled with sweet goodies. To keep them busy during the shower, I made these Eiffel Tower placemats for the kids to color! C'est magnifique!
