Yellow & Orange Baby Shower

Mom-to-be Kimmy didn’t want an over-the-top pink baby shower, so this fresh and vibrant yellow and orange color palette was the perfect feminine alternative. Photographer Megan Blaine of Blaine Photography kept the look and feel airy and light with soft textures and layered fabrics. The flower arrangements really are the stars of the show, beautifully created with orange ranunculus, yellow chrysanthemums, peach roses, and silvery-grey succulents. For a lot more detail on this shower design, see Megan’s description at the bottom of this post. To see more from this shower, please visit the full gallery!

From Megan Blaine:
“The main table was covered in a cotton lace table runner layered over luxurious Italian linen table cloth, with a soft frayed edge. We saved different sizes of food jars for weeks, then wrapped them in organic crocheted ribbons for an added touch of softness. We filled them with bright colored flowers abundant with petals. We filled the jars with tight bundles of orange ranunculus, yellow chrysanthemums, peach roses, wild daisies, and silvery-grey succulents grounded the arrangements. The sandblasted manzanita branches also added a sense of layered texturing, a juxtaposition of hard & soft that added interest and complexity.

Kimmy had one request for her shower: mojitos mocktails! She hasn’t been able to indulge in her cocktail of choice for the past 8 months, so we made a delicious minty mojito mocktail! We also had sangria which tied in the colors of yellow and orange.

Kimmy’s mother’s house provided a beautiful neutral backdrop for the shower, and Kimmy’s mother provided the biggest spread of food imaginable! The food labels were printed on thick, cotton paper.

Guests were thanked with precious woven straw bags filled with lavender seeds to plant and grow!”

    Hi Megan!

    I just discovered this adorable baby shower. I love the typography you used on the menu cards! I was wondering where you found the font for “RSVP”, also used for “Cream Cheese” and “Romy’s Famous”?

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Elaina!

    The font for RSVP, Cream Cheese, and Romy’s Famous is called Campbell. It’s a great font; I use it all the time!
