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 Outdoor Baby Shower

Ashley Perlberg of Weeno Photography found the inspiration for this whimsical outdoor baby shower in the gorgeous illustrations of Rifle Paper Co. Ashley, along with the expecting mom's sister Kellen, created a lovely backyard soiree in a gold, peach, and teal palette. The stork from Rifle Paper Co. was incorporated into the decor as a wood cut-out that hung above the guests, along with some little clouds. More hanging clouds found their way to other areas, serving as fun, hand crafted signs for each section of the party -- and they'll all later be hung in the baby's room. They skipped the party games in favor of a fabulous craft station where guests made mobiles for the nursery. The mismatched furniture, vases, and other decor made it all feel more intimate and full of whimsy! To see all of the photos, visit the full gallery!
