I specialize in (and adore) children's parties because I am naturally drawn to sweet color palettes and whimsical themes. So, when I am asked to style baby showers I find myself focusing on the "baby" aspect of things instead of the "shower" aspect. Although I never get sick of diaper cake centerpieces and pacifier napkin rings, I knew I wanted to change the styling to the "shower" end of things...so I did just that.
The mad search for invitation inspiration was on! I found exactly what I was looking for in Designs By Nicolina, so I had her design table tents and food labels to match. The aqua background was exactly what I needed to make the rainbow colors pop! I wanted the linens and display pieces to be as simple as possible to really make the printables stand out.
As soon as the printables were designed it was on to the cake. But not just any cake... A donut cake!!! I had always wanted to use a heaping tower of mini powdered donuts in place of a cake and this was my perfect chance! The powdered sugar combined with the rainbow sprinkles were a match made in heaven for this dessert table. I topped it off with handmade aqua pinwheels attached to stripy straws.
The rest of the desserts were garnished with rainbow sprinkles to match the donut cake, so milk bottles with a sprinkle rim were a no brainer. Mason jars filled with fresh cake and layered with a fluffy sprinkled frosting were a yummy addition, and blue raspberry jello cups topped with whipped cream were a refreshing treat.
Jumbo chevron bags stuffed with multi colored ponchos and adorned with umbrella cookie cutters were the main party favors. Treat bags set by rain boots filled with rock candy acted as secondary favors for guests to take home. The custom backdrop by Giggles and Grace Designs pulled the entire display together and was the icing on the cake! Handmade pinwheels surrounding the backdrop and a child size umbrella were the finishing touches to this "sprinkled with love" baby shower.
