Oh baby! This marigold-orange and blue baby shower celebrated an expecting mom and her baby boy on the way with some of her favorite things; yummy food, the color blue, and anything botanical. Which explains the beautiful florals! The tables were set with beautiful green and orange arrangements, persimmons, and seed packet favors all atop velvet blue linens. It’s even prettier than it sounds!
From the Expecting Mom…
My husband and I will have been married 7 years this coming May. We were pretty young when we got married and I love that we had a good amount of time to enjoy life as just the two of us. We love traveling and doing outdoor activities with our dog, so I hope that we can continue to do those things we love with our son and that he grows up with an appreciation for those things too.
I love all things floral and boho! Blue is my favorite color, but I didn’t want to stick to the tradition of having an all blue shower because we’re having a boy. I opted to accent the blue velvet table runners with floral arrangements featuring bright pinks, orange, yellow, and some pops of red. My mom loves any opportunity to help me with DIY projects, so we went to the LA flower mart the day before the shower and picked up flowers to arrange ourselves.
I love going out to eat, so having really good food was important to me. True Food Kitchen helped me put together a really unique brunch menu and the presentation of the food and beverages was beautiful! Even though I didn’t have any, I loved that they helped me set up a mimosa bar with fresh squeezed juice for the guests to enjoy.
Danielle from Sheila Mae Cakes did a wonderful job on the red velvet cake! It was so beautiful and simple with the drizzled caramel detail and I saved the cake topper and framed it to use as wall decor in my baby’s nursery.
Being in the wedding industry, I have been obsessed with La Tavola’s velvet linen collection ever since it came out. Once I saw the farm tables at the venue, I knew I had to use velvet table runners. The rich blue color was my base and I chose bright colors to elevate it from there.
I wanted everything to be timeless and feel like a garden brunch party, so I really just focused on having lots of flowers and botanical themed invitations and day of paper goods.
