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.

Once Upon a Time Baby Shower

Ashley Zwar from Beloved Indeed styled this charming "Once Upon a Time" baby shower for her sister-in-law, filled with sweet storybook and fairytale details throughout, with Studio 28 on hand to capture these lovely shots. Ashley also designed the creative invitations, written in a story format to set the stage for the shower. Guests were invited to bring their own favorite storybook for the baby's new library. The decor for the shower was also inspired by the large enchanting tree that creates a shaded canopy over Ashley's backyard, which was decorated with handmade ribbon and daisy lanterns that swayed in the breeze. Favorite storybook and fairytale quotes were displayed in gold, vintage frames and used as centerpieces, along with fresh spring flowers, orange tulips, and greenery. The color palette was kept gender-neutral and fresh in sage, oranges, and pinks, as the baby's gender is being kept a surprise. So sweet!
