Event stylist Galas by Gerry put on a baby shower theme of Vintage Parisian, which really turned out to be a classy event with a sweet elegance and provided a lovely atmosphere for the guests. With simple décor and a light palate, this vintage Parisian theme was relaxing and perfect for an outdoor celebration retreat.
Seating tables were set up with white table cloths and gold chairs, and boasted matching white plates adorned with miniature gold baby carriages in the middle. The centerpiece had an amazing vintage feel with fresh white flowers in brass vases on gold platters. These seating tables were complete with classic white umbrellas for shade. The main table was set up with Parisian glass bottles of drinks in gold ice buckets, platters of tiny cupcakes and macaroons, and in keeping traditionally with the theme, mini baskets of fruit and other plates of organic produce. White hydrangeas and roses were placed throughout for accents and a pink sign with another miniature gold baby carriage attached welcomed guests.
There was an ingenious chalkboard sign set up to showcase the food menu to the guests and the writing was in the style of old Paris. The food on the menu itself was fit for a French café and included both savory and sweet dishes.
The space for shower gifts was set up in the ultimate classic Parisian fashion with a metal, shabby chic crib to place gifts in. The baby shower activity which I thought was a brilliant idea was making a headband for the baby.
But two especially authentic additions to this vintage Parisian baby shower was a sign made from twigs that read “sweets” for the treat and drink table, and a cute accessory for the mother-to-be herself: a giant pink balloon with swaying white feathers attached.
