Hannah’s Lavender Bohemian Baby Shower
To celebrate my sister’s baby shower, I designed a darling celebration in a single family home in Roseville - and talk about a transformation. With select bohemian pieces from our collection, bespoke floral design, and a whole lot of love we transformed this living space into the boho baby shower of Hannah’s dreams.
Don’t get me wrong, I love incorporating muted pink hues into our event designs. But when Hannah requested something different, I was refreshed and excited about using an unexpected accent color – especially three days after Valentine’s Day. Creams and lavender paired with gold metallic accents together set the chic Bohemian tone along with moments of whimsical purple hued blooms in our brass vessels and Savannah peacock chair. Be sure to scroll through to see all of the details captured by the talented Allison Upchurch Photography – you may even want to steal a few for your own planning:)
We customized our gilded gold mirror to greet guests upon arrival along with an intimate guest lounge featuring our Delilah chair, Serena coffee table, Ariel settee, Shiloh wicker chair, Chiara rug, Cheyenne side table, nova candleholders and brass geometric terrariums – timeless, chic and oh so boho. To take the lounge to the next level, we had a custom lilac balloon with ombre tassel from my friend Nicole Gilmore of Lifted Balloons - which matched our Delilah chair perfectly and will make the sweetest garland to adorn Arabella’s nursery.
A styled photo op featuring our Savannah peacock chair, Cheyenne side table, Jasmine pouf and bright Kilim throw gave Mama-to-Be Hannah a place to open gifts and take photographs with family, many of whom she reunited with after five years at this celebration. Our Esperanza macramé backdrop complimented the free-spirited boho vibe and we sourced beautiful blooms to dress up our vintage Savannah peacock chair - everything from Israeli ruscus to fresh lavender. We also added floral to our brass bud vases and luna candleholders as accents and as much as we love candles, we loved repurposing them as vases for flowers.
A beautifully displayed and scrumptious tasting dessert display definitely tops our list of best ways to enhance any event. We used our vintage glass severs, round mirrored tray, lace tablecloth, purple goblets for floral arrangements and macrame dreamcatcher with gold-dipped feathers to style this vignette . From lilac feathered rice krispies and gold dusted macarons from Creme Si Bon to a semi-naked cake by Lindsay’s Sweet Cakes we embellished with simple florals. This dessert bar definitely made a sweet statement.
For libations we used our vintage glass drink server and assorted amethyst goblets and sourced lilac flutes for a Lavender Lemonade drink station. Pinterest offered some amazing recipes, and this one with lavender essential oils was such a hit—confirmed by many recipes requests.
We opted not to have any type of game and instead substituted a blessing ring, which we placed on a stunning lilac velvet tablecloth from Party Crush Studio. A custom dreamcatcher flowing with lavender and gold ribbon and lace invited guests to tie on their wish or blessing for Arabella. Each was also given as a party favor a lace-wrapped bar of lavender soap handmade by Deena & Donna.
Transforming this space with a talented vendor team as well as our rentals, floral and styling made for the most perfect setting to celebrate Hannah and to create enduring memories to cherish forever.
