Edmonton Event Planner: Parisian Inspired Baby Shower

We were delighted to help celebrate the arrival of Baby Fitz with a Parisian inspired shower hosted by his maternal grandmother at the Royal Mayfair Golf Club.

The theme of the shower was inspired by Fitz’s mom’s love for sophisticated French design, which she developed while attending photography school in Paris. A neutral palette of taupe and crisp white with ornate scrolls and stripes integrated throughout the event design made the celebration fit for a baby boy with high style.

A French style café served lattes, cappuccinos and specialty coffees which guests paired with exquisite treats from the adjacent ‘patisserie’, including a showpiece croquembouche, macarons, meringues, eclairs and lemon cakes from Duchess Bake Shop.

Parisian inspired lounge furniture shipped in from Decor & More created a comfortable space for guests to hold the star of the party. Guests tested their baby smarts with a celebrity baby name game and nursery rhyme quiz, and the winners took home beautiful Voluspa candles. Baby Fitz was showered with love and cuddles – a great start to what’s sure to be a beautiful life!

Featured on Style Me Pretty Living, this beautiful baby shower was captured by super talent Jessica Fern Facette. Enjoy!
