Many people consider the space theme exclusively for boys, but this darling baby shower planned by Carlene Smith of Naturally Yours Events proves just how cute it can be for a little girl, too! The mama-to-be presented the theme idea, as they had been calling the little one on the way "Captain" and it seemed to be a perfect fit. However, when they discovered "Captain" was a little girl, Lucy, they simply made a few tweaks. Read on below for all the details from Carlene on how this shower came together, then stop by the full gallery to see all of the lovely photos captured by Liesl Diesl Photo.
"Since it was a challenge to buy decor for a shower with this theme without people thinking little Lucy was a boy, we had to specially design everything from invites to favor tags! We turned blue astronaut suits and green spaceships to pink ones and added a mix of cool chevron prints with pops of polka dots. The result was perfectly adorable!"
"The venue, Catalyst Ranch, was a perfect place to host the shower with colorful walls and eclectic vintage furniture. Luscious Layers Bakery out did themselves with alien cookies, planet cake pops, and milky way brownies. The ombre cake had star cutouts, pink planets, and an adorable mothership and captain cake topper."
"Everything about this shower was tailored to the happy parents and their love of Sci-fi. We had guests decorating the baby's "space suit" and a handmade guestbook of a star map. Each guest was asked to fill the baby's galaxy with their fingerprint as stars."
"Star garland hung in the windows and tables were adorned with chalkboard globes. The flowers were put together by Pistil & Vine using pink feminine florals with fun pops of yellow billy balls to look like alien antennas."
