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.

Waiting for Summer Baby Shower

We love personal showers planned and designed by close friends -- you can really feel the love in every handmade detail! This shower is no exception. Expecting mom Jenn's friends, including Jessica of Sparrow & Me Photography who took these lovely photos, created this adorable shower with a "Waiting for Summer" theme. As the little gal on the way is named Summer, and ironically the summer season seemed to be starting late in their area this year, it was perfect. Jessica wanted the shower to be extra bright and cheery with tons of little DIY projects to add a little more love to the afternoon. She pulled this off with details that included vibrant paper poms, thrift store fabrics in stripes and vintage patterns, oversized paper pinwheels, and bright peonies in mason jars. To see more from this pretty shower, check out the full gallery.
