Little Chic Girl – Pink & Gray Tutu | Silhouette Baby Shower Theme by Joelle of The Party Starters Events.
To get to the pink, rosy heart of how every expectant mother imagines her daughter’s life could be, try creating a baby shower with this classy, vintage feel. The centerpiece here is a gorgeous cake with pink fondant cushioning on top and pink, white, and gray ruffles around the sides. Evocative of Miss Muffet’s tuffet, the cake is topped by a pink baby rattle to announce the happy news: it’s baby shower time!
The antique look begins with a backdrop of gray damask vinyl and draped thin white material showing off an ornately framed silhouette of a little girl. The dessert table is very elegant and feminine. Frosted in pink polka dots and adorable gray ruffled tutus vanilla cake pops add their own retro charm to the treat table, while pink sugar cookies with gray tutus and strings of pearls practically steal the show. Pink and white boxes of caramel popcorn and strawberry cheesecake cups with silver spoons amplify the pink-and-grey color scheme. A table skirt of light fluffy pink tulle flounces adds the final touch to the desert display.
From the treat tray liners to the table cards, the repetition of stylized grey-on-white patterns evoking antique wall unite this design beautifully. Touches of yellow add a bright note, like the frosted cupcakes displaying cards that depict old-fashioned looking baby items: buggies, rattles, and bottles. Drinks are served in mason jars with striped paper straws—a simple, but appealing vintage touch.
Grey card-stock gift bags are decorated with a silhouette of an expecting mom, bringing the eye back to the central picture in a lovely echo of feminine elegance.
The general effect of this theme is both sophisticated and girlish. Joelle has really done an amazing job here it would be almost impossible to recreate such a unique and charming event.
