Picnic In Paris Baby Shower

We were excited to be able to create another baby shower, this time it was a french theme with the emphasis on Paris and a little picnic by the Eiffel Tower!

The invitation that was sent out was created on an old look vintage postcard which tied in with the romantic old world theme.
The scene was created by using stencilled images of the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triumph on hessian in the background and hanging overhead was 'bebe' made from wrapped ivy and Hycinth. Covering the table was a beautiful vintage lace tablecloth and a few other vintage finds which set the tone for the day.
Food was french themed with baguettes, chocolate eclairs, salted caramel macaroons, citron tarts and fresh strrawberries, just what picnic food is supposed to be like!
Fresh flowers were a big feature with lots of white Sweet Pea and Anemones as well as bunches of Lavender which smelt amazing! For the outside tables old french wine crates and cheese wheels were used to continue the theme. 
At the end of the shower guests were invited to take home beautiful chocolates wrapped in french cotton and personalised tags.

  1. Wow! I loved everything about this post. I have to share this with my sister. She is a budding designer and she is helping me decorate an event space San Francisco for my best friend’s bridal shower. I am sure she is going to love this decoration and arrangements.
