Here’s a creative idea for a baby shower that incorporates both the mom- and dad-to-be. Let me present you with a “Let’s Feather their Nest” baby shower created by twin sisters, Amber Karson and Emily Butler of Amber Karson Events. I sometimes feel that dads-to-be get a little shafted during all the excitement and celebration of a new baby. Shouldn’t they be showered with love and gifts, too!? Call it non-traditional, but I would love a baby shower filled with guests of both guys and gals that are special in our lives. And that’s why I love this baby shower. The space is contemporary, the pops of color are vibrant, yet the details still keep it a little feminine. Take a look at all the beautiful images and become inspired for your next baby shower or event bridal shower event!
The invitation sets the mood for the “Let’s Feather their Nest” baby shower.
The baby shower event took place at Fathom Gallery in Washington D.C., a former-auto-garage-turned-mixed-use gallery space. Guests arrived at the gallery and were escorted upstairs to the open loft space. I love art galleries. The space is wide open for possibilities and creativity.
Look at this tablescape! It’s done very classy and simple. There’s not too much going on, which is good. Sometimes I feel some events tend to overdue it on the tablescape. You’re more focused on the decoration than the actual event. The table is adorned with ornate birdcages filled with flowers as center pieces with brightly colored feathers and ribbons on the turquoise chairs.
Here’s a closer look at the adorable napkins that continued the birdcage theme. They were placed on top of the stark white dinner plates while the brunch menu card laid on top. All the colors popped against the white tablecloth!
How fun is this? A guest book wall where guests left the parents-to-be special messages using a dry-erase pen on the gallery’s super cool cabinetry. To keep these special messages, just take photos of each message.
Lovely parents-to-be on the left with their delicious soft white buttercream cake with a white chocolate bird’s nest as the topper.
Look at the little faux bird eggs!
They worked with Windows Catering to create a fun brunch inspired hors d’oeuvres menu. They passed a tray with french toast sticks, pancake wrapped sausage and mini quiche to name a few, along with a custom bloody mary & bellini station. Amazing! Guests could create their own cocktails & mocktails while using all the fun garnishes on display!
These are sock carton baby gifts. They are adorable and matched the theme perfectly!
