Design Board: Lovely Lavender Party Inspiration

I’m thrilled that I am able to host a sprinkle/shower for my dear friend’s third child this month. The trend to throw “sprinkles” for second, third and fourth children makes me very happy—new babies need celebrating whether they are the first or the tenth to come along!

When I start to design and style an event, I look through many images to find just the right point of inspiration, and I collect them on Pinterest. (Project Nursery has some great inspirational boards on Pinterest, if you aren’t already following them!) For this sprinkle, the decor will be shabby chic with a touch of lavender and grey. The white will make the sparse use of lavender really pop and make the party feel airy and a little romantic.

As for the theme itself? We’re going to be all about baby love. I was brainstorming for a theme when I ran across a precious little banner strung across one of the cribs in a nursery from the Project Nursery Gallery—you never know where inspiration may strike!
