Set in the latest Melbourne event hot spot (and aptly named) Greenfields Albert Park, we decided upon a tropical theme of all things natural, taking inspiration from the venue's understated furnishings and open view of Albert Park Lake. It proved to be a perfect choice as it works well for either a girl or boy baby shower decoration idea.
The baby shower balloons + decorations
With this editorial, we were thrilled to work with the talented team at Green Event Melbourne, who expanded our natural theme with an abundance of their greenery.
We got creative with foliage, and nixed the typical pink or blue blooms that are all-too-familiar at a baby shower. We still managed to keep a soft touch by overloading the venue space with greenery – the secret is to replace the flowers with something equally indulgent: in this case, we incorporated white + gold + marble balloons with all of the ferns.
Belle Balloons did an excellent job with the balloon installations, ensuring they were the focus of attention at every turn: balloons of different sizes were used on the desserts cart, above the table where our guests enjoyed a high tea, and gracefully suspended over the host’s chairs.
We are especially loving the jumbo gold balloon, which provided great photo ops.
While we said ‘no’ to flowers as decorations, we did bend our golden rule just a little bit: I mean, how could we not with this too-cute flower crown, provided by I Heart Flowers?
Baby shower cards
Of course, to prepare guests for what’s to come, we used tropical baby shower invitations to set the tone. White Ink Design Co. provided the perfect stationery pack, complete with invite, RSVP card and placecard.
The sweet life: cake + desserts
To contrast and complement the lush greenery, we chose gold cutlery, straws, and cake stands. Set atop a golden bar cart, even the drink dispenser was filled with a gold-coloured passionfruit and apple sweet tea!
Cookies and cake were supplied by BB Cakes, and tasted every bit of delicious as they looked. We are especially loving this ‘blessed’ baby shower cake topper!
Oh, and make sure you check out the credits below of all the wonderful people who helped make our idea come to life!
