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.

Beautiful "Love in Bloom" Themed Baby Shower

Mom-to-be Nikki’s love of flowers inspired the “Love in Bloom” theme of this gorgeous baby shower, set at a fabulous indoor garden venue in NYC, the Gramercy Terrace. The theme was also a bittersweet nod to Nikki’s mother who shared her love of nature and flowers, as she passed away shortly before the news of the pregnancy. This beautiful day, full of beauty and warmth, was a wonderful way to honor her mom.

The baby shower was bright and bold in a vibrant palette of pinks, coral, and turquoise. Nikki’s favorite flowers, peonies, adorned the 12’ long tables in a runner of 65+ bud vases. Floral themed details appeared throughout the shower in fun ways, like the flower headbands given to guests, edible flowers in the risotto, and place cards personalized for each individual with a flower related to their interests or background. Guests enjoyed a 3 course meal, followed by an out-of-this-world cake designed by Carlo’s Bakery. The day was full of fun events, too, including a peony wishing tree, a flower headband craft station for the baby girl, and baby shower games. Rachel Kuzma captured all of the photos, and you can see more in the full gallery.
