This French country inspired baby shower theme embraced an elegant essence that was certain to please mom-to-be. Styled by the wonderful Something Vintage Rentals, this brunch was a gorgeous blend of beauty and fun.
The venue was a lovely rustic garden, allowing the bright sun to provide the abundant natural lighting that gave this party life. Since baby-to-be’s gender was going to be a surprise, neutral tones were used brilliantly throughout the venue.
Some unique and innovative ideas used that set this party apart from most included a buffet made from pallets. They had a rustic quality that really embraced the country theme perfectly. The dishes used for the tasty foods were all very vintage inspired as well, ensuring that they would blend with the theme nicely.
For a fun effect the seating was arranged family style in a long rectangle with an assortment of chairs to give an innovative look. Down the center of the table a white runner made a lovely stage for the piles of books and baskets of deliciousness as well as the delightful flower arrangements. Gorgeous dishware was used that matched the soft tones of the theme wonderfully.
Other adorable additions to this French-style theme included a vintage pram that was exquisite in its detailing. Another cute idea was incorporated chicken wire into the venue by creating plate chargers, photo frame backdrops and accents in the invitations with it.
The backdrop for the pallet buffet table was inspirational with a white cloth flag banner and cute center art saying “Bebe.” A chalkboard was also displayed on the table adding a charming look that had “Brunch de Bebe” written on it.
Another favorite idea used for the party was an oversized birdcage that was utilized to hold the gifts, giving a fun and unique look.
