Organising a baby shower? Get #inspo from this too-cute pastel event!
Tonight on The EDIT, LENZO teams up with the very best in the party scene to give you this PALM + PASTELS Baby Shower.
The shoot was held at Melbourne's L1 Studios, which provided a neutral base for our fun colour scheme to #pop in real life and in our imagery – which was easily achieved thanks to the help of Kassi from Hello Darling Photography.
Read on to get your fix for a sweet baby shower theme for girls!
As is always the case with invitations, baby shower cards should reflect the theme so your guests will know what to expect. We love the pastel splashes of colour on our invites, which perfectly matched the rest of our setup.
Don’t forget that in addition to the invitation itself, you’ll also need a menu, place card, party favour label, and RSVP – and it always looks better when they all coordinate.
Keeping with the pastel theme, a watercolour cake was created by the 'Cake Ink' duo, who also designed our beautiful stationery! We hope this image won’t only give you baby shower cake ideas, but that it will make you equally hungry just looking at it!
We know finding the perfect dessert can be difficult and can really make or break an event (we’re not kidding!), which is why we have curated a list of the best baby shower cakes Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney have to offer!
Baby Shower Gift Baskets
For gifts, our mum-to-be was lucky enough to receive a stunning baby shower hamper from 'Le Rose' – can we take a moment to appreciate the Moet goblet? And how cool is the custom wrapping paper from 'Wrap.me?,' which you can create straight from your Instagram feed?! LENZO is #HOOKED!
Baby Shower Decorations
As we have all seen this party season, lush greenery is in and we thought why not put a fresh take on the trend and paint them an array of pastel colours. Yes, we pulled up our sleeves and hand painted the gorgeous greenery with 'Haymes Paints,' working with a colour consultant to select a pastel palette of Lafleur, Spearmint and Greyology, with a deeper shade of Sweet Sixteen for contrast. Stay tuned this week for our DIY project!
The furniture and tableware popped against the white backdrop, all thanks to one of the latest to join the LENZO party revolution, ' Harry the Hirer'! We are especially #obsessing over the pastel premium collection - and we can imagine they will be a massive hit this coming party season.
The table setting was dressed with an array of palm arrangements by Melbourne florist, 'Lulu Bird,' teamed up with partyware accessories such as the pink twine and honeycomb balls from our friends at 'Light & Co,' plus the new range of matte black crockery from 'Harry the hirer' - #onpoint!
The installation design was created around the stunning neon heart light by 'What She Said Co'. We added a new twist by adding mini balloons by 'Belle Balloons' and white honeycombs from 'Light and Co'. It was finished with a few pastel painted palms and #magic! Seriously #amazing floristry skills by the 'Lulu Bird' team! Once this was all set up, #teambabyshower just had to step back and appreciate our collaborative creative efforts.
Now one of the hardest things about a Baby Shower is thinking about drinks, as alcohol cannot be enjoyed by the guest of honour! So, what better way to create a zen atmosphere than by introducing a #TOOCUTE tea bar?!
We filled our awesome Tiwilly Jo's glass dispensers with an assortment of herbal tea from Cuppa + Co. We especially loved the Berry Bang - the aroma was incredible. The tea was served in gold-rimmed china cups by 'Nest the Label,' and they couldn't have been cuter for the occasion. Have a closer look to see the bubba elephants and little fawns!
Love, LENZO x
