I’m excited to share a pink and gold baby shower I styled & co-hosted for a childhood friend recently. (I’ve known since we were 4 years old!)
Inspired by the look of her nursery, which has sort of a glam/posh princess vibe, I decided to go with a Royal Baby Shower theme that was super playful, glittery, and all just plain GIRLIE all over. :) This was a very large baby shower with about 60 guests, and we definitely went all out!
The “royal” vibe was carried through with crowns, scroll banners, and Chiavari chairs. I wanted to keep things fun & sweet too, though (as opposed to purely “fancy”). So… the real stars of the decor were actually cute animal statues wearing DIY lace crowns, tiny embellished doll furniture, and framed motherhood quotes. I had a lot of fun designing this printable collection and tried to bring in a touches of playfulness & emotion throughout the signs.
Miniature wooden furniture, painted gold and embellished with rhinestones and ribbon
Bud vases (from Ikea) painted & glitter-dipped
Playful animal statuettes painted and embellished with sequin trim & DIY lace crowns
Mini tissue tassel garlands strung across some of the tables
A special chair for the guest of honor with mini paper “MOM” garland + sparkly sequin chair cover
As I mentioned above, the Royal Baby Shower theme was inspired by mom-to-be’s nursery design for her “Tiny Princess”. :) The key elements of the decor were crowns, doll furniture, and playful animals + lots of glitter, sequins, and overall glitz/glam!
There were lots of DIY elements, from the spray-painted animals to the glittered frames and tissue tassel garlands. Here’s an overview of the tables & decorations:
TABLESCAPES & DECOR
Mini tissue tassel garlands made from pink tissue paper & metallic fringe curtain from Party City (DIY Tutorial here)
Gorgeous tablecloths & napkins from La Tavola + printable paper napkin rings
Paper chevron table runners cut from a paper roll from Paper Source
Framed printable quotes displayed in Tolsby frames from Ikea
Spray-painted animal statuettes (from HomeGoods) with sequin trim & lace
Painted and glitter-dipped bud vases (from Ikea)
These were spray painted first, then brushed with mod podge about 1/3 of the way up and covered with glitter… a super easy project!
Tissue fringe stands for the centerpieces: made from candle holders and wooden circles that were covered in
patterned or glittered paper and given a tissue paper fringe border. (DIY Tutorial here)
custom printable paper napkin rings
“Wishing Tree” draped with acrylic beads and glittered pacifiers
Sequin baby shoes (found at HomeGoods)
Printable “TINY PRINCESS”, baby name and “MOM” garlands
