There’s so much to love about this white & teal tropical baby shower on our baby blog today! From the tropical theme (one of our favorites) to the fun activities, and idyllic venue, you’ll wish to mimic the celebration for one of your own! We wouldn’t expect anything less to shower a floral & event designing mama! The Penelope Pots owner, Jackie, describes here perfect shower here, sparing no detail!
I was inspired by marrying modern minimalism with natural/tropical touches. I wanted to incorporate 2017’s pantone color of the year, greenery, but also create a fresh take on it. Additionally, I wanted something that suited our personal style as well as the nursery for our soon to be son, “August.”
The venue, Pasea Hotel & Spa’s Blue Room, provided the perfect oceanfront canvas to bring this to life. It was bright and open, with amazing furnishings. Golden Arrow Events & Design curated all of the adorable details and decor. They also personally hand made backdrops, woodworked geometric shapes, and custom baby blocks. Finally, they created a 30 foot long balloon installation, embellished with greens and pampas grass.
The kids play area was filled with fun crafts, balloons, homemade cookies, and milk boxes like those you used to get at school. The invitation suite’s palm print was designed and watercolored by Kaylyn of Pirouette Paper Co. specially for the event. The tropical flavored cake and gem chocolates by Elise Cakes pulled together the sweets table perfectly. Plus, they were equally as delicious as they were beautiful! Also, the cake’s hand cut and textured shapes complemented the event theme so well. We had the event’s delectable food styled by the on-site chef on the beautiful and minimal place settings provided by Cherished Rentals. Everyone Loves a good taco bar!
All in all, the day came together without a hitch! Plus, it was captured so beautifully by Meghan Elise photography. It was a creative culmination of friends celebrating our newest family addition!
