How to plan the perfect baby shower (hint: start with the mom-to-be’s favorite colors)

An outdoor baby shower luncheon hosted by her best friends and family is any girls dream. White Peacock Events planned and styled this pretty shower, they said, “we wanted it to be girly and elegant”, and the talented Melissa Mlejnek photographed all the fun. (Don’t forget to hire a professional photographer for such a memorable occasion so you and your guests can just relax and enjoy!) What’s the best way to start to plan a party like this? By starting with a color palette. The momma to be’s favorite colors are gray and lavender so that became the perfect palette for her shower. White Peacock Events believes every party must start with a perfect paper invitation, so they had Pretty Girl Designs create an adorable gray, white and lavender invite with a baby buggy to set the mood. Signs for the mimosa bar, favors, sweets etc. all had the same design and all the decor of course was in the same color palette. A casual lunch by the pool and fun nursery rhyme games made a perfect afternoon for the girls and they all went home with Essie’s Saint Lucia Lilac nail polish with the tags “Baby I’m Yours”. We can’t wait to see what the baby’s first birthday party will be!
