ABC, 123 Themed Baby Shower

When floral designer Lesley Frascogna of TULIP found out her dear friend Nan was pregnant, she knew she wanted to do something extra special for her shower. The inspiration for this gorgeous baby shower came from the adorable white ceramic table numbers Lesley discovered at BHLDN. This sparked the idea for the ABC, 123 theme. After seeing some items Nan had picked out for her nursery, pink ended up being the perfect color, while adding gray made it a little more modern palette. The idea for the bird accent was inspired by the amazing nursery wall paper and throw pillow from Dwell Studio. Lesley worked with a good friend and invitation designer, Mary Margaret Mink, to design the shower invites, which set the tone for the event. The additional print work and textiles were created by Lesley's assistant/designer Beverly. The end result of all their hard work is a polished, delicate, and beautifully feminine baby shower. The lovely photos were captured by b. mo foto. See more in the full gallery.
