Pink + Navy Tea Party Inspired Baby Shower (33 photos)
The inspiration for this Baby Shower came about after seeing the straw hats on a trip to Target. This baby shower was for Christina, my sister's best friend who is expecting her first baby, a girl in July. My sister had asked me to help her plan and design a surprise baby shower for Christina because not everyone got to attend her first baby shower the month prior. This was an intimate luncheon for 25 of Christina's closest friends and family for which having a Tea Party Inspired theme worked perfectly. The guests were asked to wear floral attire to match with the straw hats we had for them. I worked closely with Wendy of Green Beansie Ink who designed the invitations, banner, welcome sign, dessert labels, favor tags and straw labels in the chosen color palette of Soft Pink, Navy, White with the Key Pattern background. The style was Clean, Shabby Chic, Feminine and Modern.
Tablescape: The tables where dressed in white linens with navy a tablecloth under it and soft pink napkins and glasses with a pink straw tagged "Drink Me". I designed the floral centerpieces which consisted of beautiful Pink Carnations, Pink Roses and Dusty Miller and misty fillers which were all arranged in a white planter vase and sat on the middle of the table.
Dessert Table: The table was dressed in a white linen and adorned with a banner that read "baby" in the front. The backdrop was kept fun and simple with pink balloons. Since this Christina's 2nd baby shower we decided to have on display cupcakes, mini blueberry muffins, banana muffins instead of a cake which I believe worked great with the theme. We also had custom mini cookies and Oreo Truffles made by Arlene of Sprinkle Parade, assorted pastries from Dulce de Leche Bakery and assorted candies in tea cups.
Everyone loved the baby shower including the guest of honor, Christina. I think this theme is perfet for a first birthday party or bridal shower.
