A Modern Baby Shower Brunch

11.17.2011
Seri and Michelle of Little Miss Party in New York sent in this lovely modern baby shower designed for a friend.  They used eye catching details like bold zinc letters and fresh flowers to pull together a color scheme of grey, white and yellow.  I really love the thoughtful personal touches, like chocolate stars in honor of the mom-to-be's maiden name.  Read on below for more...

From Seri: LMP threw the most gorgeous baby shower… and all during the crazy October snow storm! From the beginning planning stages we knew it had to be off the charts classy, sophisticated and modern; just like the mom-to-be. Keeping the colors gender neutral we worked with crisp white, pinstripe gray and lemon yellow.  We worked with Jennifer Owens at Blackberry Graphics to create a pretty and sophisticated invite which set the tone for Rachel’s shower. We used the invite as inspiration to design water bottles, a gift sign and coffee station signs. Everything tied together so beautifully making the shower feel modern yet baby chic. The menu was brunch and mostly vegetarian for our mother-to-be who does not partake in eating meat…so we served up a menu that would be hearty enough for a veg and satisfying enough for a crowd of mingling gals: Strawberry greens with a balsamic vinaigrette, Fruit salad skewers, Veggie & cheese frittatas, French toast bites, Bagels & Lox and Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins along with Sugar Sweet Sunshine yellow cake with buttercream frosting, mini cupcakes and Macarons from Maison du Macaron.  As a guest giveaway we used poodles. Rachel loves poodles and grew up with them in her home. So as a subtle way of adding this cute detail into the shower we had Kristan at Kreated by Kristan make poodle sugar cookies on sticks, individually wrapped and tied with a yellow ribbon. We put them on display with a pretty sign directing guests to take on their way out.

  2. Every time I think I'm over gray and yellow, I see something like this and realize that I'm not! Love the urban and raw details on the letters and the patterns.
