Real Baby Shower: Hot Air Balloon

Monday, May 16, 2011

Good morning and welcome back to another week full of baby shower bliss. I'm starting off this Monday with some truly delightful photos from Simply Bloom Photography. With such adorable invitations from Ruby & Willow, you know there is going to be one stunning baby shower to follow! Vania and Christine did a fabulous job incorporating the gray, peach and seafoam colors into this Hot Air Balloon event. And the maternity photos? Adorable. And the dessert table? Exquisite. And everything else? Speechless. Enjoy!

From Vania and Christine... This past weekend we celebrated Christine’s baby shower with our intimate girlfriends. I had been working for months on putting together the best, most stylish event for her, because you know, she simply deserves it. The inspiration for the “Mommy Shower” were Christine’s favorite colors: gray, peach, and seafoam, as well as some elements from the nursery she so beautifully designed.

The one-of-a-kind custom invites were designed by the insanely-talented Kate of Ruby & Willow. These gems came all the way from New Zealand in their perfectly fabric-lined envelopes and with crafty twine as the main lettering… they were divine. Kate of Ruby & Willow is PURE genius, check out her website & blog.

I wanted for the shower to be a visual and tasty experience, and I think that it was a success…

My incredible mother is responsible for the impeccable execution and delightful taste of all the glorious desserts…

I asked all the girls to dress in the theme colors, and again I was so happy with how it all visually worked. We had a grand time, and just wait till you see all the inspirational details that came to life from a mere sketch!
