Elegant Pink and Blue Baby Shower

No detail was overlooked at this elegant baby shower, styled and planned by the mom-to-be herself, Shannon Cait, along with the help of her sweet family. Shannon absolutely loves pink, but with the gender of the baby a surprise, they brought in baby blue to pair with pretty blush pink. She designed the invitations herself, creating a simple, lovely design that set the tone for this classically styled event. Read on below for more details about this beautiful shower, then stop by the full gallery to see all of the photos, which were taken by Shannon’s dad.

Guests had their pick of a lovely spread of desserts. The adorable elephant cake by Sweet & Saucy Shop was so cute that Shannon had a hard time cutting into it! For the “BABY” sign in blocks, Shannon and her mom found wooden ABC blocks at Hobby Lobby. They needed a “Y” block to spell Baby, so Ryan, Shannon’s husband, scraped off one of the Cs and glued a Y on in its place. White hydrangea arrangements flanked the cake in decorated glass vases.

From Shannon:
“As I mentioned before, I love decorating with pink, so my Mom had to continuously remind me to use blue as well. She found these plates at Kirkland and because she is the best mom ever, she picked up 25 plates for us to use. I made salted caramel macarons for each guest to enjoy and placed them in the mini dessert cups.”

For this shower, they did a clever twist on the popular onesie decorating station. Shannon’s mom came up with the idea of decorating onesie-shaped cookies instead! Six colors of royal icing were available in 12 oz bottles along with little embellishments. Guests then voted on the winner. The cookies were later packaged up to be taken home by the guests.

From Shannon:
“I am not a huge fan of traditional baby shower games, but the celebrity game never gets old. I took 15 celebrity baby bumps and using Photoshop put my head over their face. Guests had to guess who the celebrity bump was!”

    These are beautiful! I can’t find anything that I’m quite looking for! Did you do the bunting custom? Her colors are a pink and taupe. Did you make the labels? I adore them!!! I would pay you to take the time to email me a tutorial! LOL I think if I start now I may be able to do it and have them ready to go out in Feb.

    Did you print them at home? Also, did you buy the paper already scaloped? I adore these I’m sorry I’m not trying to drive you mad! :) I’m doing everything by myself and want it to be fabulous!!!

    Amber, the dress is the Swan lake tutu dress by 213 Industry. I bought it at http://shopruche.com but it looks like it’s no longer available.

    Lisa, the invitations were printed at home on the Paper Source superfine soft white cover paper and I used the A7 envelopes. I cut each scallop myself (real fun!). I made the bunting myself by cutting out triangles and hot glueing the flags to jewelry twine available at Joann’s. For the gold labels on the frosting bottles, I used the Laduree logo and put in my own text using Photoshop and my Mom printed them on label paper using gold laser foil. I hope I answered everything and I wish you all the luck with the shower — it sounds like it will be fabulous!

    Here you go:
    2 little eyes, 1 little nose
    Two excited parents waiting to see
    a boy or a girl
    which will it be?
    the dresser is empty, the nursery is bare
    so Ryan & Shannon can prepare

    I love the cookie decorating as an alternative to the usual games. Can you send me the verbiage that you used in the directions? Everything was so thoughtfully done!
