Well, things have sure changed since my last blog post. Ryan accepted a job so we went ahead and relocated our little Oregon grown family to the Los Angeles area. It took courage and a leap of faith to leave behind extended family, our brand new dream home, and a neighborhood full of friends but so far we have been loving California (thankfully). All that said, even with all this new distance I am still planning a baby shower for my sister in law in Portland this October. Fall in Oregon is the best so I think I will be ready to go back for a few days! Anyway, here are all the details.
We decided to go with a French inspired Black and White look with pops of vibrant florals. I typically pick out the invites and stationary first and then build the design of the event around that. This time around I went with some amazing Minted.com items.
We also plan to set up a Mimosa Bar as well.
Aren't these wrapped baguette sandwiches adorable?
I am going to attempt to replicate this cheese board as well.
The dessert table will include a small to medium sized macaroon tower from La Provence .
A rustic naked cake topped with fruit or flowers will look great.
I found THESE beautiful candy dishes that are large enough to store Parisian inspired stacked cookies. This will save us money in the end since bulk candy can get very expensive.
Well there you have it. All the basics you need for a French Inspired Shower. I can't wait to put it all together for you! Stay tuned for Allie's Unicorn Birthday Party in July. It will take place in our new SoCal backyard. Can't wait to show you all!
