Mint + Peach Baby Shower (39 photos)
When event designer and planner Lauren, of Lauren Stewart
designs + events, was approached by her friends about throwing
a baby shower for her baby girl, she couldn't help but want to help
with the planning! Inspired by the peach and mint green colors
she was using in her baby's nursery, she fell in love with the idea of
incorporating some sparkle when she spotted the chevron and
nude sequined linens available at La Tavola.
Lauren's design for the shower was completed by the beautiful
flower arrangements created by Kate at Floret Cadet and the
pretty and oh-so-yummy treats made by Sweet & Saucy Shop.
The shower hostesses also reached out to Kelly at WH Hostess to
create the adorable paper materials, including the pennant
baner, menu cards, dessert table signage and games that the
guests enjoyed playing at the shower.
The shower was held at a private residence in Pacific Palisades,
California. Guests arrived to the home and immediately walked
out onto a stone courtyard where the mimosa bar and drinks were
set up. Elegant drink dispensers were labeled with coordinating
signage, giving guests a peek of what was to come. After the
cocktail hour, guests entered the yard where they were greeted
with a breath-taking view of the ocean, three sparkling tables
under big white umbrellas, and a few activity stations set up for the
The luncheon tables were dressed with sequin chevron tablecloths
and runners, sparkling stemware, and coordinating menu cards.
Lauren’s chair held a special “Mama-to-be” sign. The sparkles
continued onto the dessert table, which was covered with with a
solid peach sequin tablecloth, embellished with chevron pennant
banners from WH Hostess and featured an balloon backdrop with
an ombre effect. Desserts from Sweet & Saucy Shop included a
chevron two-tiered cake, cake pops, cookies, layered parfaits,
and chocolate-covered rice crispy treats.
The activities were all darling and centered around the baby
shower theme. There was a table set up with apothecary jars full
of baby items: clothespins, safety pins, and buttons that people
had to estimate how many items were in the jars. Baby Bingo
and a Mama & Baby Animal matching games were created by
WH Hostess, as was the custom due date calendar. Framed in
a white frame, guests were encouraged to guess as to when the
baby would be born.
The shower was such a special event thanks to Lauren's friends
who made her feel so loved and supported!
