“Aloha Baby” Shower


This was a baby shower thrown in May for my baby, Sebastian! I was 30 weeks pregnant :) It was held at the Bali Hai Restaurant in San Diego, California on a beautiful, sunny Sunday afternoon.

Design Inspiration

The inspiration was my husband & my love for Hawaii & the aloha spirit! We used touches of blue ombre & whales throughout the shower. We also had our baby bump photos taken on a babymoon in Hawaii two weeks before the shower & incorporated those into the shower too.

Favorite Items

My favorite items were the wishing tree, dessert table & candy buffet. I spent a lot of time researching on Project Nursery & looking up candies online to make the perfect mix. My guests raved about the shower for days, even weeks & I still hear that it is the "best baby shower" they've ever been too!


My advice is to have fun & make sure to voice your opinion to people hosting the shower. If you don't like something your host is suggesting, don't be afraid to change it a bit to find a compromise! For example, I do not like baby shower games but compromised with my mom & Auntie to have a few of them that I selected. Find things that you can even incorporate into the nursery after the shower is over (we have elements in Sebastian's room now). Soon you will be holding a sweet baby or babies in your arms!!!

I posted a photo of one that's a bit angled in this project but there's a forward facing one in the nursery project :) I'll add another here soon! Thank you for your interest :)

You must have really beautiful baby bump photos, considering you have the beautiful sea, sand and sky as your background! Wish you shared close-up photos of these shots.
