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.

Lovely Nautical Themed Baby Shower

Emarie of The Collection Event Studio, who is expecting her first little one very soon, was treated to a gorgeous nautical themed baby shower, planned by her sister Meika-Rae and best friend Phoebe. Emarie is also lucky to have many friends in the event industry who contributed to the event, like the lovely florals from Lidia Sadoon of La Fleuriste, the yummy cake from Kelly Zubal of Inticing Creations, and the delicious homemade ice cream and cookies from Jen Musty of Batter Bakery. The nautical-inspired decor included rope-wrapped vases, a captain's wheel, and silverware tied with rope. Everything is tied together perfectly with the paper goods from Nicole Roura of Umama. Our favorite part of this darling shower is the message in a bottle station, where guests enclosed sweet notes and advice for Emarie in little bottles. Melanie Duerkopp captured all of the pretty photos, and you can see more in the full gallery.
