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.

"Maiden Voyage" Themed Baby Shower

The "Maiden Voyage" theme of this lovely baby shower held in honor of expecting parents Kristina and Ross was only fitting, as these two soon-to-be parents are both pilots! A Little Savvy Event worked with the shower host, Kristina's best friend Ellie, who wanted the event to be wonderfully girly and full of soft pinks and pastels. Ellie also loved the idea of adding vintage and Parisian elements to air travel, so that is just what they did!

Cardgirl Designs created invitations for the event with this concept in mind, and the muted color palette and vintage style imagery used set the tone for the rest of the event. The hot air balloon featured on the invite also made it's way into the decor, from the stunning "hot air balloon" centerpieces designed by Fleuressence to the whimsical hot air balloon cake by Inticing Creations. The invitation imagery was used again on the photo booth backdrop from Courtney Cargile Custom Chalk. All of the details were captured by Allyson Wiley Photography, and you can see more photos in the full gallery!
