Baby in Bloom Baby Shower
A Baby Shower at Kelton House in Columbus, Ohio
Emily’s sister was planning her baby shower from Texas and wanted some help from beginning to end, to make it the ultimate celebration for her (and the baby)! The only thing she knew she wanted was the theme (A Baby in Bloom) and a balloon arch!
I quickly went to work to find the perfect venue. The Kelton House ended up being our first choice – they wanted an outdoor space, both for the outdoor vibe but also to feel as comfortable as possible as restrictions were just being lifted in Ohio with COVID. I built a design concept, and we sourced our vendors and finalized the details that fit the vision perfectly.
We went with a muted, but colorful palette, that I just love! We did individual lunch boxes, mimosas at each seat (“Momosa”), and Jeni’s ice creams for the guests. The napkins from BBJ are one of my favorite touches – they fit our color story perfectly and added a fun touch! I wanted a white cart to add a fun element to our design, plus a fun chair for the mom-to-be! Our florist came through with the perfect floral touches and the pergola at The Kelton House was the ideal spot for the balloon arch!
One of my favorite things to do is to use a book as the guestbook, especially for a baby shower – every time you read it to the baby, you get to see all the kind notes from the most important people in your life! They chose one of their favorites, one that had meaning to them – I Wish You More – and it’s the cutest book! We also did two interactive games that went over really well – “the price is right” for baby items and a baby word scramble. Oh, and I can’t forget the live guitarist – that was such a perfect touch to the day. It was truly the ultimate, intimate baby shower!
I’m so thankful they chose me to help pull this together – they are the loveliest family and I really enjoy celebrating these very personal events with clients!
