Couples Storybook Baby Shower (29 photos)
Couples Storybook Baby Shower was inspired by the dad-to-be's profession as a high school English teacher and his love of books and education. The baby's nursery inspired the color palette of aqua, yellow and grey.
Mama bear, a self proclaimed foodie and "yelper" requested bite-size versions of her comfort food staples. Being a laid back couple, the parents-to-be allowed the hosts to run wild with therir imagination to create a casual and fun atmosphere to celebrate their baby boy's arrival.
The custom invitations were designed by the host to look like a vintage chalkboard. The back side included a "library card" asking guests to bring a book for the baby in lieu of a card. The decor was mostly purchased from local thrift stores. The terrarium centerpieces were all handmade by the host and her husband with vintage vases and succulents from their garden.
The bite-size food buffet was created and cooked entirely by the host, her husband, and assembled with help by a handful of friends who generously scrambled around in the hours leading up to the event. The dessert bar was pieced together from a variety of local vendors and bakeries in South Florida.
The photography was provided by friend and professional event photographer Brett Dunckel.
