Yellow hues and seasonal blooms made a chic baby shower!

Recently I attended my good friend Alina’s baby shower and I was in awe with every detail of her minimalist yet elegant shower.  Her mother threw her the shower, but all the details were brought to life by the mommy-to-be. Entering her grandmother’s backyard and seeing all the natural colors was so refreshing. 

Let’s stroll into the details:

Alina chose her theme when she chose her baby shower invitation. Her invitation is yellow and off-white and features an adorable baby elephant. She went with these colors as she didn’t want a typical blue themed baby shower. {Invitation – Designed by mommy-to-be, printed at a local print shop and envelopes purchased from paper source}

She turned her grandmother’s backyard into an oasis with white large draped tent {Town & Country} and two long tables. The brown mahogany chiavari chairs were a great natural addition.

The Servers from Sophie W Catering 818-406-7704 made the event set up, serving and clean up easy for her.

She chose seasonal flowers mostly yellow flowers with some white accents and put them in a white square porcelain vases from Moskatels in Downtown LA. Flowers were designed by Vicky 818-634-1086.

I loved how she presented the games! Wow! All the “handouts” and a cute little white pencil were nestled in our napkin as we found our seats and our names were fastened with the cutest clothes pin which was the perfect touch. {clips from and pencils from Michaels, game cards designed by mommy-to-be}

The favors were her favorite part of the shower! These charming tiny jars of Bee Local honey were a sweet parting gift for her guests {“Thank you from mama-to-be” tags made by mama-to-be herself}.

 

“Welcome Baby Boy” banner was made with love by her friend Annie.

Alina prepared for the shower by getting a spray tan at a local organic spray tan salon in Manhattan Beach.

She purchased her A.L.C. non-maternity dress from Nordstrom. Her off white, off-the-shoulder, crocheted floral lace dress looked amazing on her and as a bonus coordinated with her theme perfectly.

She had her makeup done by Makeup by KD and chose a daytime natural look. She did her own hair by letting it down.

She showed her appreciation to her mom for hosting her shower and got her a Michael Aram picture frame with a family picture in it.

Some tips from the mommy-to-be:

It is a lot more work to do an event at home, but you are on your own schedule and it’s more personal.

You also get familiar with vendors; you do a lot of research keep vendors close by for another event.

Try to plan for things you can’t control like weather, it was a hot day so I got fans for the guests to keep them cool.

Something I would do different is that I would delegate more and accept help when people offer to help.
