While Edyta Szyszlo was on assignment shooting a wedding, she took some time out of her photography schedule to throw her dear friends Nat and Jeff an incredible baby shower. This white glamorous baby shower party day was full of love, laughter, gourmet potluck goodies, handmade details, and a little bit of rain to keep everyone cuddled up together for a fireside celebration.
White paper lanterns were the main focal decor point. They were strung together and scattered across the room. Sets of them dangled from the ceiling.
A garland of onesies were hung on the wall over the cozy fireplace. Each onesie had a silhouette of the family member’s face on it. We love that even the dog gets one!
White rosettes labeled each guests drinking glass.
As a yummy part of the dessert buffet, guests could choose from chocolate cupcakes with white frosting or little cups of nonpareils. Yum!
As it was a little chilly outside, guests were invited to cuddle up fireside with their own personalized cup of cocoa. They call it ‘cuddling cocoa’. How cute?!?!
Edyta included a diy paper book plate in the guests’ invitations so that they could write a note to Baby Kiwi on the inside front cover of their favorite baby/kids book for the baby’s future library. It was a surprise for Nat and Jeff and one we’re sure their baby girl will love! Amongst baby’s favorite new library books and toys is the Sophie the Giraffe teether and the Dr. Seuss classic ‘Oh the Thinks you Can Think!’
