Floral Baby Shower

I'm so excited to share the baby shower I recently had the pleasure of styling! 

Nothing makes me happier than when a client says, I'm open to whatever you want to do, I trust you. YES! 

So of course I wanted to take the opportunity to finally create a floral cascading balloon piece, and I couldn't be happier with how it came out! 

Baby showers are always so much fun to design! I love simple yet beautiful decor. Also, I think it's always great to find centerpieces that are useful and not something that people feel obligated to hang on to until they finally give in to tossing it in the trash. So I really loved using Pellegrino sparkling water as a centerpiece. 

It's always funny how the pictures never show everything that goes wrong when styling a party, like when the bakery messes up your cake order and forgets to put the flowers on your cakes. But if there's one thing I've learned is how to roll with punches and make it work! (I say this after I have a mini internal anxiety attack, and all is well). Luckily, there was an amazing cake decorator there and she helped me out! Special thanks to everyone who helped make my vision come to life! 

Congrats to the momma to be!  hope you loved this baby shower as much as I did!

& Thank you for trusting me to design your special day.
