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.

Countryside Tea Party Baby Shower in Portugal

Set in the countryside in the north of Portugal, the surroundings of orange trees and country flowers became the inspiration for this beautiful baby shower honoring mom-to-be Lara. Cristina Hermelin of Chic Up Your Party designed, styled, and planned all of the gorgeous details and also created all of the pretty coordinating paper goods. Cristina made use of Lara's own vintage china and decor to create a delicate and sophisticated tea party baby shower in Lara's garden. Orange, pink, and green made the perfect palette for this feminine, outdoor event. Catarina Zimbarra Photography captured these lovely images, and you can see more in the full gallery!
