Jennifer, the beautiful mommy to be, simply loves baking. And so her dear friend Adelle, the organizer of this event, decided to do a “mini baked goods” theme for the shower complete with a gourmet bakery table for guests to “shop” from with lovely pastry boxes and featuring goodies from Balthazar, Flour, Payard and Sugar Sweet Sunshine. Once Adelle explained the theme to us, we immediately thought of using Ranunculus and Lisianthus. There is so much detail and layered beauty if those little flowers. Even the unopened buds add interest and playfulness to arrangements. And these flowers are perfectly sized for mini bud vases for which we knew would fit perfectly into the whole “mini” theme.
We had seen floral cupcakes in a trade magazine surprisingly from a florist in Russia! They were very basic and inexpensive but were a hit with their clients and we saw how you could take the basic idea and make it so much more with flower selection and then adding the cake stands and cupcake domes took it to a whole new level of elegance. This design is very versatile. We see it being used for bridal showers, birthday parties and could even grace a desert table at a wedding. It’s cute yet sophisticated. See the full gallery below.
Guest tables alternated between the cupcake domes and bud vase trios.
A trio of bud vases filled with Pink Ranunculus, White Tulips and Pink Lisianthus.
This three tier cake stand was the centerpiece to an amazing mirrored table used for the gifts. With a skylight and crystal chandelier overhead. The whole room filled with light, reflection and an airy feeling.
Guests were asked to design a hanger for the baby’s closet. The fun arts and craft supplies were lined up at the bar. What a cute project for the ladies to enjoy and for Jennifer to have as memorabilia of a special day surrounded by all her best friends.
This is a picture of the Imperial 9 room prior to set up. It is a gorgeous room all on it’s own but you can really see how our decor really sprung this event to life with subtle pops of color. It was meant to compliment the room’s already fabulous decor and not compete. See how the design all started and came together with a Pin Board on Pinterest
We hope you enjoyed this “sweet” little shower as much as we did. We invite your comments. Come again soon. xoxo
