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.

Whimsical Circus Themed Baby Shower

Whimsical Circus Themed Baby Shower

We've seen the circus theme done so many ways, but never have we seen it pulled off in such an upscale and sophisticated way! This baby shower designed by Belinda Lui of Bookt Events for her own sister is whimsical and fun with just the right touch of glam. Belinda found inspiration in the gorgeous invitations by Sugar Press and carried that look and feel throughout the whole event. The decor was full of surprises, from creatively detailed floral arrangements by French Buckets in bright primary colors that included gilded birdcages, ceramic zoo animals and miniature flags, to an array of vibrant paper lanterns hanging outside. The outdoor area was transformed into a big top tent draped in royal blue and ivory white taffeta, bringing a huge visual impact.

Guests were treated to a delicious menu by 24 Carrots Catering, that included a gourmet tea sandwich station. For some extra yumminess, guests enjoyed circus inspired treats like truffled parmesan popcorn, mini funnel cakes and caramel apples. A carousel cake by Wonderland Bakery made for a beautiful addition to the dessert table. Lorely Meza of Studio EMP captured the beautiful images of the day, and you can see much more in the full gallery!
