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.

"Made in NY" Silver & Pink Baby Shower

When it came time for Andrea Lee of Coquette Events to have her baby shower, her cousin and host Corinne wouldn't let her lift a finger--but with Andrea's talent, she did let her help plan this charming event. Andrea eventually decided on a "Made in NY" theme to celebrate their life in the Big Apple. They worked with Silly Me Designs to incorporate fun language into the invitations and encouraged guests to dress NYC style. Tables were dressed with Andrea's favorite flower, fresh pink dahlias, and guests enjoyed a New York inspired lunch menu that included pastrami sandwiches, mini sliders, pulled pork, mini bagels, and apple shaped pizza bites. They also had their fill of amazing desserts that included sugar cookies from Dream Cakes by Maggie, apple-shaped cakepops from Lollicakes, and strawberry filled cupcakes from Kara's Cupcakes. For activities, guests decorated onesies and also made their own charm necklaces to take back home with them (love that idea!). To see more of this adorable shower, visit the full gallery.
