Description

Girl Baby shower in yellow and pink colors. The mom loved vintage pieces, so we decorated little antique white urns, rustic birdcages and lanterns with garden inspired flowers. For the cake we wanted to go more elegant and modern than you typical baby shower cake so we modified a bridal cake and topped it with cute Chanel baby shoes with a bit of sparkle.  We also added little details like mini cupcakes, a wishing tree, mini lemonades, candy jars......all in the color scheme pink and yellow.  For the background we created a painting using stencils with birdcages, trees and bird patterns.

Design Inspiration

Enchanted gardens and vintage feel

Decorating Style

It hard to say, I would say I dont have a particular style as I adapt myself to the project. But I love to create elegant decorations through simple details.

Project Details

For the flowers and everything decor we used Gabriela Wakeham Design (www.gabrielawakeham.com) and for the cake and desserts we used BMQ Desserts (www.bmqdesserts.com) both based in NYC

Favorite Items

Loved the birdcage and the cake!

Advice

Focus on the small details. Guests love small details, like mini finder foods, small flowers arrangement, small serving plates. Also simplicity can be elegant. Choose your color scheme. Either you go with bright colors like pink and yellow or more pastel with lavender, white and green.... Source Ebay for cute vintage objects or go to your local flee market. Also dont be intimidated, go to your local scrap booking store and you will find tons of ideas and easy to do projects.
