Pretty Pastel Shower
A Dainty Event
Contributed by Designsgirl
Sweet. Feminine. Colorful. Nostalgic. For Kelle Ann McCarter of Designsgirl Calligraphy, these were the words that came to mind when planning this delicate and pretty pastel baby shower for a friend.
Serving as the initial inspiration for this animal-themed baby shower, the shower motif and a sprinkling of items were printed with a sweet rabbit image. She designed a hand drawn baby shower invitation, silk-screened hemstitched linen cocktail napkins, and created gift wrap all with the ubiquitous rabbit. A marvelous swan-topped tiered cake stand served as the centerpiece for the table, and guests contributed colorful family china – including plates, cups, demitasse, and family silver. The mismatched look added a fun and festive, yet sophisticated, decor for the setting. And, of course – there had to be a menagerie of animal place card holders- lions, rabbits, owls and horse hooves. With just the right amount of whimsy and planning, this shower setting made for a successful party, and a priceless memory for those who attended.
