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.

"Pantone Parenthood" Themed Baby Shower

Color is often an important element in any event design, and here it even served as the theme. Expecting mom Cynthia, owner of event design company For All Time Events, found inspiration in Pantone's Color of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity, and created this beautiful "Pantone Parenthood" themed shower. The event was a coed affair and they set up some thoughtful areas for both men and women. The women enjoyed a meal, gorgeous desserts, and each other's company in an elegant space decorated with pretty blue and pink hues, with umbrellas hanging above. Meanwhile, the guys had their own hideaway, complete with a sports bar, TV, poker tables, great food, custom sweets, and a keg. Eva Marie Photography captured the beautiful photos.
