Please Note:

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.

Bows and Mustaches Themed Baby Shower

Bows and Mustaches Themed Baby Shower

This baby shower is full of homespun charm and pretty, shabby chic details! Expecting mom Natalie of Our Love In October adores everything mustaches and bows and thought it would make the perfect theme for her shower. Natalie brought in lots of cute mustache and bow details, including a sweet garland made by her sisters, glass drinking jars wrapped with little bows, and even some shortbread "mo's" for the guests. Jenny Cuerel Photography captured all of the lovely photos, and you can see all of the shots submitted in the full gallery. Also be sure to keep reading on below for more details from Natalie!

Bows and Mustaches Themed Baby Shower

”Inside I styled a beautiful drinks station with vintage teacups, saucers and a teapot (hired from Fancy Tea), glass jars with bows and stripy straws, and a bow and mo mason jar with forks and spoons. My sisters made a cute paper garland of bows and moustaches to hang behind the drinks station.&rdquo

”Sitting next to the drinks station was my collection of bows and mo's on sticks, along with our bow's and mo's themed paper goods and an adorable photo of me with my sisters and my nephew with our mo's. Guests were asked to wear their guess (a bow or a mo) depending on whether they thought our little bundle will be a boy or a girl!”

"My fabulous guests were invited to a lovely morning tea at home. We sat outside at timber tables with mismatched vintage timber chairs. The tables were decorated with rustic paper placemats (free printables from Design Sponge) with white and blue ceramic plates. Down the centre of the tables sat beautiful mason jars tied with lace and filled with fresh flowers from the farmer's markets.”

"Between the flowers stood my collection of glass and ceramic cakeplates covered in delicious desserts and treats made by my Mum, sister and myself. We baked treats that included white chocolate tarts with raspberries, mini lemon cheesecakes, a hazelnut meringue slice, a three-tiered raspberry layered cake, mini croissants and little savoury tarts. Jade from Cake Star also created mini caramel cupcakes with bows for us. In glass bottles stood our handmade moustache cookies on sticks. In each mini dessert and treat sat paper food tags.”
