Last year we were excited to find out we were expecting a baby boy! My family hosted the most wonderful baby shower filled with all of our favorite things including brunch and a gospel choir at the beautiful Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta. Normally you don’t have a baby shower for a third child, but this being almost a decade since our last baby and having a boy, we were starting all over. We had our entire family attend, including my husband and two daughters so we could celebrate together.
A beautiful navy and gold foil invitation from Papered Wonders, with the bible verse “Every Good and Perfect Gift Comes From Above”, expressed our joy and set the tone for a special event.
The overall shower design centered around a navy and white geometric fabric pattern that was incorporated in the invitation, shower cake, table linen, and also after the shower for the baby’s nursery. We worked with I Do Linens to source the fabric and make all the specialty linen. My Floral Bliss provided beautiful floral decor accented by gold mercury containers and candlelight. The focal piece of the shower was a stunning grapevine wood centerpiece on a table with our maternity photos.
A gospel choir began to sing and everyone moved into the main room for brunch. The buffet from Soiree included shrimp and grits, Basil Parmesan Chicken Salad Sandwiches, Fresh Fruit Kebobs, a Chef Attended Fried Chicken and Waffle Station, and a Lemonade Bar with 4 flavors of lemonade. The cake table featured a beautiful navy and gold cake from For Goodness Cakes, that was inspired from the invitation pattern, and surrounded by a display of gourmet donuts.
During the shower, guests were able to sign well wishes in a baby bible so as we read stories to DJ he can also read the messages from our family and friends.
Guests were able to take favor bags filled with scripture cards, bow tie sugar cookies, and handmade bow ties and hair ties. It was a beautiful day to be surrounded by friends and family. Everyone enjoyed the gospel choir while eating incredible food and having time to visit with one another. It was a unique way to welcome our new baby and we loved every minute!
