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.

Woodsy Coed Baby Shower

Expecting couple Thach-Giao and Gregor didn't want a typical, single sex baby shower, so their dear friend Christina Vo hosted them a coed "pre-baby party" instead. Christina is a stylist and floral designer based in San Francisco, and she used those skills to create a beautifully styled event with thoughtful details. Read on for more shower planning info from Christina, and stop by the full gallery for more photos, captured by Joe Lee Photography.

"The theme was woodsy-outdoor. I found vintage books (focused on animals) and used the pictures to put in frames. I also covered a large mirror with cut-outs from an alphabet book. Thach-Giao did not know that we were going to do this, and actually decided to take all the decorations home and use it for the nursery. One of my friends got a polaroid camera for people to take pictures, print them out and then sign a guestbook with the photos inserted. It was such a sweet/fun idea that they both loved."
