Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Library Inspired Baby Shower

This darling library-inspired shower honored Erin Taylor of Bustle to celebrate the impending arrival of baby Cohen. The clever invitation from The Aerialist Press set the stage by mimicking a library card. A talented team of vendors came together at The Collection Event Studio in Sonoma to bring this memorable shower to life, including Engaged & Inspired and Floral Theory. They created a unique and charming space with several DIY projects, including a fabulous table runner, vases hand crafted out of books, mini gold crowns, and yarn letters. Cathleya of and Wedding Bee created a delicious spread of appetizers with a little inspiration help from Pinterest. For dessert, guests had a selection of cookies from Batter Bakery, homemade cake pops complete with glitter topping by Engaged & Inspired, and cupcakes from Fox & Fawn. Each guest also received a pie-in-jar takeaway favor to round out the shower. The beautiful photos were all captured by Volatile Photography, and you can see more in the full gallery!
