A Pretty Surprise Baby Shower in Gray, Yellow, Pink, and Mint

A Pretty Surprise Baby Shower in Gray, Yellow, Pink and Mint

The only thing sweeter than a pretty baby shower like this one is when it's a total surprise for the mama-to-be! Event planner Amanda got such a fun surprise from her friends and fellow wedding vendors at The Bell Jar, who came together to throw this gorgeous shower lunch. They found Amanda's nursery Pinterest board and used it as inspiration in styling the shower and teamed up with some of the best vendors in Dallas to make it a reality (see the full credits at the bottom of this post!). Read on for more details from Lauren of Lauren Chism Fine Papers, then stop by the gallery to see all the beautiful photos captured by Apryl Ann Photography.

"The Bell Jar is a wedding and event planning studio in Dallas, Texas, and when one of our planners, Amanda, was expecting her first child, the rest of the vendors wanted to throw her a little shower to celebrate. We thought it would be fun to surprise her, so we lured her there, under the pretense that she would be meeting with a bride over lunch. Instead we all gathered to surprise her with the shower and it turned out so well, because you can tell she had no idea!

The shower was inspired by her nursery pinterest board, which included chevron and a sweet palette of gray, yellow, pink and mint. With some of the best vendors in Dallas as the hosts, it seemed effortless as everyone did their thing and all the details came together beautifully. We enjoyed an intimate lunch and desserts that were as delicious as they were beautiful and really enjoyed getting to celebrate with the mommy-to-be."
