Laura’s Palm Springs Themed Baby ShowerMarch 21, 2017 / byA Beautiful Mess / Categories : Feeds
I wanted Laura's shower to be a day she would never forget and that would reflect her style as much as possible. So I filled the house with pink (not hard to do) Palm Springs inspiration (even easier), and more sugar than I even knew was possible (that part was more for her husband, Todd).
The succulent and cactus theme for the desserts was so much fun. I hired Leeuw Bakeshop here in Nashville to create these beautiful treats. Her husband even created a cookie cutter from scratch to make these classic car cookies... above and beyond! I was blown away.
Haha—sorry for the bra straps, but here's a pic from getting ready. I decided not to hire a photographer for this party because I wanted to make sure it felt personal and not like a "blog photo shoot". So we kind of just all tag teamed snapping photos.
Fun fact—Laura won't allow me to see her nursery (like I can't go into the room, and she won't show me any photos) because she wants it to be a big surprise. Haha! I feel like it's going to be like an HGTV reveal... except her house! She's the best at making everything a surprise and a big event (and I can't keep a secret to save my life).
On the menu we had a big cheese spread, the treats (which you've seen) and a mimosa bar (champagne optional, of course). We also had Laura's mother's famous chicken ball. So good!
The shower was so much fun. We all ate too many cookies and had the best afternoon celebrating this beautiful family!
Please take a moment to leave Laura a BIG CONGRATULATIONS! This season is so full of love and excitement. We can't wait to meet baby girl in May! xx -Elsie
