How do you throw a baby shower for someone who’s full time job is to create day in and day out? Momma-to-be, Alexis, is the creative genius behind The Shift Creative, a design + styling business right here in Southern California. Her friends had the intimidating task of planning her baby shower but—perks of working in the arts!—Alexis’s “friendors” stepped up to the plate to help build a celebration that goes WAY beyond Pinterest-worthy!
Alexis couldn’t help getting in on the planning fun, as well: What’s a party without a photo backdrop? I decided I wanted to have my hand in at least one design detail, and since installations and backdrops are my speciality, I created a wood backdrop with diamond designs and splattered paint. It was so much fun to execute! Special thanks to my girls Tiffany and Lauren for all the coordinating and Ally for snapping such pretty photos! This baby is already so loved!
Hey, hey, pretty momma! Doesn’t she just glow?!
Wildheart Rentals and Rad Weld Customs made the family-style tables specifically for the shower! They’re also behind the modern-bohemian lounge areas throughout, all accessorized with Boho Pillow swag.
Love, love, love, these personalized acrylic place cards De Lovely Details.
Farra at Hostess Haven gave the gals plenty to choose from with a rental collection that always makes us soon! Her ceramic plates with gold flatware rounded out the place settings!
And for the design detail that can never go wrong, The Dainty Lion‘s neutral floral arrangements made for perfect centerpieces.
The blush napkins tied in bows are such a sweet touch!
We’re borderline obsessed from all the pillows at Boho Pillow! Swipe through and shop our top picks:
This marble cake by Beverley’s Bakery was certainly a stand out!
And the mud cloth macarons also from Beverly’s Bakery fit seamlessly into the sweet, boho theme.
Just adorable! Congrats on your little one, Alexis, and thanks for letting us in on the celebration!
