Kate Spade Inspired Baby Shower

You couldn't ask for a more stylish, fabulous baby shower than this fun Kate Spade inspired event, designed so beautifully by Taleen Shirikian of Simple Little Details. From the black and white stripes throughout the decor to the gold laser cut elements, this day was full of style and charm. Taleen had every detail covered. Read on below for more info from Taleen, and also see what the mama-to-be had to say at the bottom of the post.

"This mama-to-be wanted something stylish and wanted us to focus on putting together a fabulous place setting. The colors of the shower were black, white, light blue, gold, and touches of green. It was the perfect palette to create a Kate Spade inspired look. We set the tone of the party with a gorgeous invitation that had a gold laser cut oh baby attached. From there we continued this theme through out the baby shower from the table décor, to the dessert table, and favors. The most talked about detail of the party was the laser cut names that were on each place setting. We loved how open Nicole was to the design and trusted us that we would create something unique and memorable."

From the Mama-to-be, Nicole:

"Being an expecting mom of a beautiful baby boy, I have a million things going on in my mind on how to prepare for this life changing event. But it was a true joy to put that stress aside for one day and be pampered by my closest friends and family at the most beautiful shower I couldn’t have even imagined!

"Of course when planning any event in our family we always turn to Taleen of Simple Little Details to execute them to perfection. Taleen first came to my rescue when planning my wedding and I am so happy we’ve been friends since then! So when the time came to plan the baby shower she and my mom put their heads together and came up with the perfect way to celebrate this next chapter in my life.

"When I entered the room, I couldn’t believe how beautifully they had captured this Kate Spade inspired theme. Every detail was done to perfection. I adored the handmade flowers that decorated my chair and party backdrop. Each guests name was laser cut in a beautiful gold font and placed next to a beautiful napkin with themed detailed ribbon. The favor boxes were Kate Spade and were filled with customized chocolates and hung from each chair. The black and white chair cushions were so unique and completed the look. They thought of everything, even themed blocks that our little guy will one day use that contain all the well wishes of everyone who loves him.

"It truly was the perfect day being surrounded by friends and family. I know baby Fantin will feel all the love that came together to celebrate him and these memories will last a lifetime!"
