Desiree Logue Champagne of Penny Blooms Floral Design and Events was thrilled when her friend Elisa of Events by Elisa announced she was expecting a baby girl. As an event designer, Elisa is usually the one immersed in the party planning, and for this shower Desiree was excited to do the planning and give Elisa a stress-free afternoon, complete with a pre-shower pampering and makeup session. Rather than play traditional baby shower games, this shower was all about enjoying each other's company at a beachside picnic with a sweet, girly, nautical theme. Read on for all the details from Desiree, then check out all the photos captured by Chris Wojdak in the full gallery!
"I used coral ombre scarves as runners that accented the cute mint green anchors and sweet spring florals with touches of succulents. Lunch was offered in fun wooden berry boxes and included sandwiches, fruit and chips."
"I had sun block wipes and blankets on hand to keep the ladies comfortable."
"We all wrote down baby wishes for Elisa’s yet-to- be-named daughter and pinned them to share."
"We topped the afternoon off with delicious cake pops and cupcakes and of course everyone went home with scrumptious French macaroons."
