Ever pin gorgeous events and wonder if you’ll get a chance to curate such a beautiful vignette for your own milestone one day? (We relate.) Photographer and mama Ellie Koleen‘s romantic, neutral baby shower was the culmination of all the pretty she swooned over from 10 years as a wedding photographer, combined with thoughtful travel-themed details as a nod to their greatest adventure yet. With a romantic tablescape, subtle fall florals, and a beautiful lounge all set up at a dreamy private residence, Ellie and guests reveled in the beauty as they celebrated baby on the way.DH Floral designed floral arrangements with dried fall foliage to adorn their boho canvas tent in the lounge, and crafted centerpieces of pastel blooms and greenery for the entry and tables.
Such pretty, minimalist invitations and stationery for a neutral baby shower.
Vintage luggage made for creative baby shower decor to pair with the florals and signage.
Isn’t this white and cream lounge the dreamiest? Calligrapher Willemina Typography personalized the yellow suitcases with the phrases “our greatest adventure yet,” and “oh, the places you’ll go”.
Ellie says, As a lover of travel, camping, and adventure in general, I wanted the shower to reflect the journey we were about to embark on, our greatest adventure yet! The customized luggage tag favors for guests, canvas tent, calligraphy suitcases, and postcards gave a nod to the travel theme all the while keeping the color palette light and romantic.
“Words of Wisdom” cards topped the romantic place settings for guests to leave advice for the mama-to-be.
Such beautiful early fall centerpieces! And love this minimalist, romantic tablescape for a neutral baby shower — though, of course, it could be personalized for a bridal shower, wedding, or other special event as well.Jade Magnolia designed blush and white floral embellished cakes for the occasion.
