When Tiny Prints contacted me about styling a photo shoot based on one of their baby shower stationery collections, I was thrilled! As soon as I saw their Cuddly Cuteness set, I knew it would pair perfectly with Itsy Belle’s Rustic Floral printables—and that was just the beginning of this Hey Foxy baby shower.
The event date was set for early September when I knew we could capture some really beautiful light. I wanted the shower to be unique but pretty, so I paired rustic elements with ruffles and glitz to create a baby shower that would be perfect for summer or autumn.
When I’m styling an event, I always want a dessert table piled with sweets that steal the show. I will usually splurge on one dessert that I don’t have to make myself, so one of my first steps in planning this Hey Foxy baby shower was to email my favorite cookie artist, Tara from Bambella Cookies. She was so sweet to squeeze me into her busy schedule, and the results were gorgeous as usual. The little foxes inspired by the invitation couldn’t be any cuter!
Next I wanted to try my hand at painting some french macarons like those I’ve seen floating around on Pinterest. Even though the results weren’t perfect, they’re still quite pretty when tucked into cute little bird nests. Don’t be afraid to try new things when planning an event—just know that when it all comes together, people aren’t going to notice the tiny imperfections you may obsess over.
Printable decorations can really pull different elements together in an affordable way. If you have more time than money, printing and creating a few things yourself can make a smaller budget look like a high dollar event!
When the shower is all said and done, make sure to remember the guest favors and thank you notes! Beautiful stationery is the perfect finish to a memorable event.
Thank you to all the vendors who helped create the eye candy for this Hey Foxy baby shower!
