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.

Mint & Pink Alphabet Themed Baby Shower

This charming alphabet themed baby shower from On to Baby member Jennifer Foley of It's An Occasion, is full of handmade details and exudes a feminine, shabby chic vibe. The mama-to-be, Erica, a partner at It's An Occasion, is expecting a girl, so Jennifer wanted to bring in a little bit of pink, but without it being overwhelming. She found inspiration in the mint and white palette of the invitation by Catherine Currie Designs, and incorporated it with the pink into the shower design.

The decor included a DIY tassel garland (click here for a tutorial) that was used as a backdrop for the dessert table. An extra cute detail is the matching mini garland they made for the cake topper! Because Erica loves to knit, Jennifer also included some yarn details, like yarn wrapped mason jar centerpieces and letters. Sweet details like this that incorporate something specific about the mom-to-be really help make a shower personal and special. The knitting details carried over into a fun activity where guests wrapped a letter in yarn for Erica to hang in the nursery. Love this idea! All of the photos were captured by Michael Borsellino, and you can see more in the full gallery.
