Hosting an upcoming baby shower and looking for a little inspiration? I am excited to share with you a bohemian baby bash we had the privilege of styling at the beautiful Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. It was a drop-dead stunner! From brass candlestick holders to macrame table runners, this poolside shower exuded all the free-spirited vibes. For all my mamas out there wanting boho as your themed baby shower, we have a few tips to get you feeling inspired for your magical day.
1. Set the tone in your invite
These gorgeous invitations came from The Pointed Nib, a SoCal based artist.
Having a designer hand calligraphy your invitation adds such a nice and inviting touch. Also, selecting a paper with texture and softness further adds to the experience of being invited to your special day.
2. Add character and warmth to your table settings, but keep it simple.
What screams “boho” more than macrame? Anthropologie has the cutest handwoven macrame table runners to help warm up your tablescapes. Paired with brass candle sticks... simply devine! Tall brass candlesticks are so elegant and rich in style. I found these holders from a vintage Etsy shop called Habitation Boheme. As for plates we used our ivory and gold party plates complimented by Wolf & Irving’s boho chic linen napkins. This combo was absolutely perfect and suited the theme beautifully!
Also included at each place setting was our peach goddess napkins and our mint watercolor cups to add a little pop of color against the rustic tones. The rose gold coupe glasses are from Anthropologie and we stopped by our local grocery store for edible flower petals to float in the champagne... such a fun touch!
2. As for food, make sure it's pretty.
Who doesn't love a good charcuterie board filled with rich aged cheese, meats and all things pickled? It's safe to say, I could live off charcuterie forever! Add some greenery, flowers and/or fresh cumquats to complete your look.
Sugar and Scribe Bakery provided artisan sweet treats. They decorated mini macaroons and eclairs with shimmering gold dust for a little added boho. They also baked up a beautiful and simple cake which Lovely Blooms Florals garnished with a flower. Simplicity is everything!
Give your Mama-to-Be a Flower Crown!
