Bun in the Oven Baby Shower Details:This is what Amanda said about styling this party-
“I love fun and unique themes for baby showers, so recently I had the idea to style a Bun in the Oven themed photo shoot. I wanted the shoot to feel homey and the style to be that of a retro kitchen. I started the design for the printables with a mint green, retro style oven, and to keep with the era, I also added a golden yellow and orange to the design.
For the food, I wanted to keep with the theme of baked goods because of the bun in the oven idea. I used a variety of fresh muffins (topped with cupcake toppers), as well as donut holes just begging to be eaten. The centerpiece on the buffet was a homemade cinnamon bun cake, because there had to be a bun in the shoot!
To keep with the retro kitchen theme, I used some dishes that were appropriate to that era. Fortunately for me, my mom had lots of amazing, retro cookware stored away in her kitchen. I used her bowls to hold some of the food, and her old cookbooks were ideal for adding a little height to my cinnamon bun centerpiece. The final retro touch on the buffet was the orange 70s flour sifter, which worked perfectly for holding my floral arrangement.
The drink bar featured a vintage milk glass bottle I found at an antique mall, and I also included some orange soda and water. The adorable plastic drink bottles from The TomKat Studio were dressed up with some mint green lace, as well as paper straws from More Sprinkled Joy and my printable straw flags.
The place settings were placed on top of a beautiful mint green tablecloth, and included mint polka dot napkins and matching game cards, as well as place cards for guests. The centerpiece on the table featured one of the retro bowls filled with oranges and a few flowers. I made a backdrop for the table by hanging recipe cards, featuring recipes for baked goods, on some sheer ribbon.
Priceless Studios Photography did an amazing job capturing every detail. I really enjoyed styling this photo shoot”!
