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.

Sweet Strawberry Shortcake DIY Baby Shower

This super sweet strawberry shortcake themed event was an entirely DIY baby shower, from head to toe. Expecting parents Cheryl Nguyen and Minh Bach pulled the entire adorable event together themselves! They considered it a labor of love for their very first baby together. They worked together to prepare all of the delicious food and beautiful desserts. Cheryl created the decorations in part from items she found around the house, such as the paper towels used to make the diaper napkins. She also freehand cut them into strips to wrap them around the centerpiece bottles. There are so many darling details, like the bright and cheery sunflowers, the gingham print fabric, and red striped pinwheels. You can see more from this event in the full gallery.
