Rifle Paper Baby Shower

A couple of months ago my friend, Hailey, and I threw a baby shower for mama to be, Rachel. Her nursery was Rifle Paper Co. inspired, so we went all out Rifle Paper with her shower, which I of course loved doing! It was hosted in our 3202 white wall space, so we let the tableware and seating area be the pops of color. Celebrating a friends baby is always a special occasion and we wanted it to be fun for her!

Invitations were designed in house. We started doing more of our own invitations and I was excited to work on these. To give it an extra touch, I lined the enveloped with Rifle Paper wrapping paper from the shop. 

This garden party table was planned using our Set the Party table planning feature. Rachel's favorite color is navy, so I mixed in these new china inspired dinner plates we carry. They are classic and elegant, which was a good anchor piece to the busy floral patterns. I wanted to share this setup this week because it's great Mother's Day inspiration, especially since a lot of us will be spending it at home. You can easily click the link above to shop this table or recreate your own!

Desserts were ordered from my go to ladies Sweet Sugarlicious  and September Moon Cupcakery (make sure to check out her wonderful new website!). Flower cookie & cupcake designs are always a favorite!

Fun balloons were a must for the shower, and I wanted it to have a floral vibe. With help from event coordinator, Emily, we created a garland inspired by the Garden Party collection we used on the tables. I loved the lemons mixed in and balloon daisies are always a fun touch. For the food area, we covered the wall in white balloon daisies to give the shower a whimsical touch. 

One of the party guests planned a shower game that involved mini escape room like boxes. She had special codes based on different baby items. Inside the boxes were prizes for the new mom-to-be. It was cute and simple, plus fun for the guests to work together.

It was a fun afternoon celebrating Rachel and baby Claire (who recently arrived and is beyond adorable!). This theme works well for many occasions, baby showers to wedding showers and garden parties. During this time, use it to brighten up occasions at home like celebrating your mom this weekend, backyard dinners and at home birthday parties.

Hope this setup brightened your day!

Lots of Love,
