Chic Baby Shower | Butler Art Institute | Youngstown OH
It’s always so much fun to photograph events. Anniversarys, baby showers, birthdays, bridal shower, engagement parties.
This super chic classic baby shower with navy, silver and hints of blush pink decor at the Butler North at the Butler Art Institute in Youngstown, OH was filled with family, friends, love and laughter and lots of joy.
The room used for the event at The Butler North was a lovely natural light filled room with large paned windows that swung open for fresh air and perfectly proportioned for 30 guests. And the plaster molding and florals Lindsey choose paired perfectly.
The watercolor stationary suite including menu, bingo and advice for the new baby. A favor box containing silk tea sachets and an assortment of almond and coffee macaroons was beautifully wrapped then hand tied with silver ribbon and included a sweet ‘a baby is brewing’ card in the same watercolor design as the rest of the stationary.
A brunch just isn’t a party without a signature champagne cocktail. And Lindsey chose the ‘Baby Bellini’ (peach juice, champagne and a peach slice garnish). The bar area was stocked with the option of both champagne AND sparkling cider (for the mom-to-be) as well as blood orange, grapefruit and lemon/lime infused water. Chilled San Pelligrino sparkling water with stainless steel straws was on offer as well.
Eucalyptus swag on the fireplace mantle along with large black and white engineer prints of the couple as babies themselves paired and balanced perfectly with a large cutout silver bebe sign with a second eucalyptus swag over the brunch buffet.
The delicious brunch options include…Arugula salad with watermelon, feta and balsamic; farm fresh mini quiches; la gourmandine croissant sandwiches; cucumber sandwiches; lemon poppyseed scones; fruit tartlets.
Following brunch and dessert the guests filled in the classic baby shower game of ‘baby bingo’. As well as leaving sweet wishes for the baby.
Gifts ranged from super sweet handmade quilts, books, traditional baby accouterments. As well as those wrapped in fun boxes providing lots of laughs. As well as the chicest diaper backpack ever.
The afternoon wrapped up with a gender reveal via confetti poppers to the delight and surprise of the guests. The couple already knew what they were having and decided to surprise friends and family with a shower of pink confetti in a fun proclamation.
Congratulations on your baby girl, Lindsey and Jesse!
