Baby showers are one of my favorite events to design. A baby shower is still about mom before it’s all about the baby. Once the baby arrives, they’re the focus as they should be! I had so much fun designing this llama baby shower for Ro and her daughter, Monica. We explored a boho chic, balloon-o-rama and succulents llama theme ultimately settling on balloons as you can tell!
The llama baby shower color palette was a light blue, mint green and white. I added pops of black to tie in the black chairs at the venue. Also, when you typically think of balloon runners, you think of rectangular tables. However, I created a beautiful zig-zag pattern with balloon runners that I created with Chrissy B Creative. I’ve created balloon runners on my own before, but working with Chrissy B Creative is always so much easier!
I love circular tables because they foster great conversation among guests. I found it to be particularly important here because we did not assign seats. Usually, I love to have a place card at everyone’s seat. However, with a baby shower of over 60 people, it was necessary. My two favorite guests in appearance were mom-to-be’s 90-year-old grandparents. How sweet is that?!
I sprinkled intricate details throughout the shower, but some of my favorites were the plates from Harlow & Grey and the menus I personally created using supplies from Paper Source.
Of course, I had champagne labels, too! If you know me, you know champagne labels are my favorite decor item to mix in. I used them on all wine and champagne bottles as well as the favor boxes.
With such a decadent sweets table, grandma-to-be and I opted for sweets takeaway boxes as the favor so guests could create a box to go. Sweets tables are so pretty, but if not used appropriately, the food could go to waste. By making the sweets a favor, we utilized the sweets as a treat AND a favor!
All in all, this llama baby shower was one of my favorites!! The sweets table, decor and place settings were too charming. It was such a pleasure to work with the below vendors to pull this event together. I hope you love the gallery of images, and if you have an event coming up, please let me know!
