Urban Chic Baby Shower {Styled Shoot}

When I think “urban chic” I think of wood and metal with touches of metallics and greenery. This baby shower focuses on those stylish elements! We’ve taken a wood pallet and created an amazing backdrop, added in sparkly gold flatware, balloons and touches of baby’s breath to create the perfect celebration for any Mother-To-Be.

I’ve partnered with one of my favorite party suppliers of fun, Oriental Trading, to put together a shower that anyone could easily re-create!


This fun and unique Wooden Pallet Backdrop with hanging globes is such a fun addition.

{Styled Shoot} Pineapple & Stripes Party

Looking for a fun moder twist on the very popular Pineapple Party?  How about my modern version of Pineapples & Stripes?  You can read my post about the “Pineapple & Stripes Dinner Party” I styled for Oriental Trading.  This is the perfect for a summer get together or impromtu girls night!


These DIY Felt Pineapple Flatware Holders are one of my all time favorite crafts.  I wanted a creative way to set the table, and these really added that extra flair I was looking for.  You can find all the directions here.


Tissue balls have such a vintage feel to me, and Oriental Trading has such a great selection of colors, shapes and sizes.  I liked the idea of adding in the mint green color along with the yellow and white to create some interest.


These cute Pineapple Favor boxes are perfect to take home one of my Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cakes (recipe here).


The DIY Summer Straw Decor was super simple and a great way for your guests to tell their drinks apart!



I hope this gives you an idea of another way to style up a fun pineapple party with a modern twist.
