One of of favorite things about our work is that we get to celebrate so many milestones with our clients and their families. For one of our favorite families, we designed a Petit Prince-inspired baby shower on Swan Lake at Hotel Bel-Air

Guests were greeted with French-inspired signature cocktails and mocktails, and found their seating assignment at individual frames at a custom escort card boxwood display with a white lattice floral pattern.

The couple opened gifts under a lace pergola seated on vintage French furniture pieces with fresh greenery and lace umbrella accents–an ode to the baby shower!

When it came time to be seated for lunch, guests were seated at long king’s tables set with lace embroidered linens, and topped with garden-inspired lush greenery and white and cream florals. Each place setting featured patterned vintage china and flatware and Czech crystal glassware, hemstitched napkins and a small tied bouquet of lavender with each guest’s name hand calligraphed on the ribbon that tied them together.

We transformed Swan Lake’s famed pergola, into a Patisserie, complete with custom lace fabric tie backs, floral ties and a vintage bar with the menu hand calligraphed on its front. Desserts of Parisian macaron towers and baby-themed sweets and treats were offered alongside a cake topped with a baby buggy.

Guests entered under a greenery-adorned archway with the foliage spelling out the word “Bebe”

A “library” vignette with a vintage desk and lace umbrella mobile offered guests the opportunity to leave words of wisdom and notes of love for the mama-to-be and her little one.

The glowing mama-to-be perfectly matched the decor in a custom lace dress.

Lunch featured fresh, seasonal French fare.

A French-inspired Jazz trio serenaded the guests.

As moms ourselves, we have spent many hours pouring over what makes the perfect registry! See below for our go-to guide to shop for our Baby Registry List essentials or click here to shop on our Amazon storefront!
