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.

Where the Wild Things Are Themed Baby Shower

With Halloween around the corner, and a little boy on the way for the guest of honor, Event Planner Mikaila Jayne knew a Where the Wild Things Are themed baby shower would be perfect. The mom-to-be is Sussanna Davis, owner of French Buckets Florist, who helped lend her expertise to the florals and decor. The shower design abounds with thoughtful and fun book-inspired details, like ribbon vines, gold foil crown centerpieces with scepters and twigs, and even a giant sleeping monster, painted by Sussanna's sister Deanna. On to Baby member Jay's Catering provided the delicious food and custom cupcakes. Guests signed the inside hardcover of the book in lieu of a traditional guestbook. To see more from this shower, stop by the full gallery.
