Today, I would like to share with you a super cute Shabby Chic Baby Shower I styled a week ago for my friend photographer, Bianca Schaefer to welcome her baby girl, Alice.
When Bianca invited me to take care of the details of this special event, I was thrilled because I am big fan of Bianca’s work, so I knew she would capture all the details beautifully.
Bianca was looking for something shabby chic tea party, girly and simple. She knew exactly what she had in mind, so it was much fun to collect super cute ideas for inspiration. I have to admit, it was a bit challenging coordinate everything as we live in different cities. For that reason, Bianca had a lot of homework to do, but I tried to communicate with her daily to make sure we were on the same page.
The simple dessert table consisted of a fabulous Rosette cake, decorated cookies, strawberry parfaits, vanilla cupcakes which were neatly placed in tea cups, chocolate covered oreos.
Bianca wanted to see lots of elements from Baby Alice’s nursery, so she asked me to incorporate the rag dolls, which spell out ALICE (too cute), a pink frame I designed a simple sign for with an ‘A’ using a shabby chic pattern, a little bird and little Alice (from Alice in Wonderland). I thought Bianca’s ideas were so sweet. It absolutely turned the decor a lot more personal.
The whole family was involved and helped so much! Grandma took care of many of the tea parties goodies, husband made a delicious Romeo & Juliet cake, sister-in-law happily helped me by putting the flowers together for the dessert table. Oh, have I mentioned sweet husband picked out the flowers himself? I thought it was the sweetest thing!
Take a look at all the sweet images:
Bianca shared this sweet day with her special friends, whom I had honored to meet.
Thank you Bianca for letting me part of this special day! I can’t wait to meet Baby Alice already!
