This MODERN CHEVRON PRINT BABY SHOWER submitted by Renee Zempel of Sweet Art Food Design is just too cute. I love the miniature clothesline cake topper! The modern prints used throughout the shower made everything just pop.
Here is what Renee had to say about the event– Sweet Art had the opportunity to style and photograph a fabulous baby shower for the most delightful of clients! What a privilege and joy it was to set the stage for the celebration of an up-and-coming little boy. It was a very special day, indeed.
The color palette and overall vibe for the baby shower was clean, modern, and fresh. Vivid teal blues and bright oranges were set against a canvas of crisp white. The bold chevron pattern used on the table runners kept the eye moving around the room, and the miniature baby clotheslines softened the edges of this rather modern look. The result was stunning!
For the styling of this table, we created a backdrop covered in the same vivid blue as the chevron-patterned table runners. Draped across the backdrop was a miniature baby clothesline, which helped to carry out the shower’s “baby clothing” theme perfectly! I loved the tall topiaries that flanked the table… they hinted at the idea of baby laundry hanging on a clothesline in a backyard.
Another fabulous detail, for which Sweet Art can hardly take any credit, was the lovely flower arrangements! One of the hostesses volunteered her own amazing talent for the creation of these beauties. We simply collaborated together on the design, and then she put together something that was above and beyond all expectations. I know that they look pretty in these photos, but believe me they were even more stunning in person!!
Also, I am especially fond of these little orange ribbon flags because my 12-year-old son made them! Have to tell you the story… One evening, he and I sat down to watch a movie and also try our hand at tying these things. Though crafts are not his usual activity of choice (um… almost never!), we discovered that he was way better at creating these than I was. He ended up re-doing all of mine. : ) Guess all of those knot-tying lessons at boy scouts paid off! It made me smile to use them at the party.
There just aren’t enough words to express to how grateful we are to have been entrusted to style and photograph this very special occasion!! Our sincerest thanks to the hostesses and warmest congratulations to the beautiful mother-to-be!
