Oh my goodness… SO in love with this beautiful & contemporary Orange & Navy Baby Shower by Aisha Holly of Dooby Design Group!

The colors, the mod minimalist flowers, the fabulous use of fonts and pattern in all the paper details (signage, napkin rings, invitations, and menus)…it’s  just gorgeous. This would work just as well for a chic bridal shower or wedding too.

This baby shower design is very modern with some great DIY details. The color palette was a high-contrast navy, orange and white. The event was for 40 guests, and I wanted it to feel very intimate and bright!

I created a lounge area in the center to serve as the focal point of the party, as well as a comfortable space for the mom-to-be to sit and relax.

Long tables were used to create a family-style dining experience.

I designed the paper goods using navy blue with a pop of orange. These included invitations, thank you favor labels, napkin rings, food signage and BABY BOY signage to tie the overall look together.

    Absolutely stunning! I love the blue and orange too. Love the favors and the lounge area. WOW!

  2. laura murdock October 1, 2010 at 10:36 am

    wow, so nice. I have been looking for orange and blue ideas for my brothers wedding. I have never seen anything this nice with those color arrangments! Love it

  3. Kate Landers Events, LLC October 1, 2010 at 10:42 am

    absolutely love the colors, and fonts!

  4. Becky October 1, 2010 at 10:44 am

    These were my seaside wedding colors in 2009 =)

    Love it!! So simple, but so elegant! What was in the favor boxes?

    Gorgeous! I love the color combination. And I’m all for nontraditional colors and themes when it comes to baby showers. Good job!

  7. Sandra (Ribbons and Favors) October 1, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    I have to agree…a lovely eyecatching color combination that would be suitable for so many events. Chinese Take Out Boxes make the favors look great. Good job!

  8. Jenn (Much to My Delight) October 2, 2010 at 5:19 am

    I love this! Who says baby showers have to be cutesy? This is sophisticated and sharp and the color combination is masculine while remaining perfect for a group of lunching ladies.

    I chose these same colors for my son’s 2nd birthday later this month for an airplane theme. Looking at your photos I can see how the colors all come together. Beautiful! Now I am even more excited for his party.

    love. love. love! I think the favors and label are my favorite! Light hearted and punny! :)

  11. Saple October 3, 2010 at 10:00 am

    So beautiful, i live close by wish I was invited to see it all working together..

  12. Patty Martinez October 3, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    Absolutely stunning! Love the white lounge area!

  13. Jeanee October 4, 2010 at 1:16 am

    I don’t think I’ve noticed this color combo before. So fresh and classy. And for a baby shower too? Wow! Looks great!!!

  14. Holly Hatam October 4, 2010 at 9:00 am

    The colour combo makes my heart happy!

  15. aimee @ paging supermom October 4, 2010 at 3:45 pm

    I’m loving the navy and orange. I see a lot of light blue and orange these days–but the navy makes it so preppy…love it!

    What pretty theme colors! I love the setup – the backyard looks like a restaurant. And I love the invitation and menu choices!

  17. Inexpensive Baby Shower October 4, 2010 at 8:13 pm

    Colors were very bright and welcoming! Beautiful baby shower set up. I love the letters on the fence!

    Being from Chicago this says “da Bears” or U of IL to me – totally not a bad thing, especially if that baby is a boy! :)

  19. Courtney @ Pizzazzerie October 7, 2010 at 7:56 am

    Aisha is such a gem. Her designs are unbelievable. This one is no less – and the modern color scheme, love it. Amazing!

  20. Sandra October 8, 2010 at 8:11 am

    Very Nice!

  21. photodiva30 October 12, 2010 at 5:58 am

    Lovely…very pleasing, simple, elegant. Unconventional colors for a baby shower but just goes to show that that works well when coordinated right.

  22. Arlene October 12, 2010 at 2:35 pm

    The decor is beautiful! But what did the guests do at the shower? It seems to look more like a luncheon, as opposed to a shower?

  23. Aisha | Dooby Design Group October 14, 2010 at 11:00 am

    Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments. I had a pleasure creating for Andrea and her family.

  24. Jacks October 14, 2010 at 11:04 pm

    Elegantly simple…beautiful shower!

  25. Julianne October 19, 2010 at 9:29 am

    Gorgeous! Love the color combo. Very simple and elegant.

  26. Mrs Sheree Jackson December 16, 2010 at 9:11 am

    Very beautiful and simplistic!

  27. Terri December 16, 2010 at 9:45 am

    What are the names of the chairs from Ikea?

  28. Hillary Jo January 5, 2011 at 6:56 am

    PS: I stole this color scheme for my rehearsal dinner. I added animal print to it for my “Wildly in Love theme.”

  29. Andrea January 19, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    Thanks Aisha for such a beautiful day!!! I thoroughly enjoyed myself and felt truly blessed that you spent so much time making sure every detail was perfect!! Love you, MUAH!!!

  30. Grace Gumaru February 13, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    I’m totally in awe. I will surely have this scheme on my next party. Thank you for sharing your talent. :-)

  31. Jen March 21, 2012 at 7:39 am

    Just love it! So simply and yet so classy!! Love the clean look of it.
