“A new baby is like the beginning of all things…hope, a dream of possibilities.” Eda LaShan
Having a baby, especially your first child, is such an exciting time for expectant parents, grandparents, family and friends. This was no exception for Meredith. Joined by friends, colleagues, and family from near and far. Surrounded with love, Meredith was showered with a bounty of gifts for Baby Carson. Taking our cues from inspiration images shared with us, we set the stage at Norfolk Yacht & Country Club to kick off their greatest adventure with a baby shower filled with natural elements and outdoorsy details for a special baby boy.
Known for our dessert stations, this mom-to-be asked for one filled all her favorite treats. Taking center stage was an chocolate naked cake adorned with candy evergreens and topped with a black bear. Wood slabs covered in macarons and cake pops as well as tiers of cookies iced with images of forest friends like a deer, fox, raccoon not to mention snow capped mountains and the most adorable plaid onesie to match the table linens. No detail was overlooked.
Our goal was to make a beautiful space for Meredith and her guests, but not too feminine. We achieved a perfect balance with masculine plaid linens, wood accents, natural elements and plenty of winter greenery. Pops of yellow, which happened to be mom-to-be’s favorite color, also helped to brighten the room. You can see touches in the florals, linens and dessert station backdrop. The chair at the gift station was an ever so slightly more golden hue.
