A Project For

Baby A

Due April 4, 2013

Description

Our families threw us a beautiful pink, grey, white, and glitter baby shower! It was full of lovely patterned papers mixed with hand painted illustrations and included baby photos of my husband and I as well as a slideshow of my baby bump's progression thus far.

Design Inspiration

"We wanted the shower to have a soft and feminine feel without being too baby-ish. Instead of filling the space with bottles and binkies, we chose to fill it with florals and glitter. If you ask Lauren her favorite color it will be gray every time... so we took that and added the pink and the gold. We tried to add details in all the right areas and I think it turned out beautifully." -Nikki, Penelope Poppy Cards & Stationary
