Once in a rare and lovely while, we come across a baby shower that’s oh-so-sweet, yet sophisticated at the same time! This was precisely the case with this wonderful rustic baby shower with a perfect pair theme styled by Jordan of Polkadot Prints. With Jordan being a graphic designer, her artful sense of color and texture and just overall visual appeal definitely shone through here! And since this gathering was for her sister’s expected twins, she chose the perfect theme as you’ll see!
“A Perfect Pair” Theme for Twins
Normally used for weddings, this pear-inspired motif works beautifully for a twins baby shower, too. And we do mean beautifully! Jordan used the natural green of the fruit, along with muted woodsy tones and neutrals, to set such an attractive rustic palette.
Notice how she extended this so subtly in the baby’s breath arrangements, the lovely cake and yummy food items (more on those below!), and even the welcome chalkboard sign? Against a generally white background, the total effect is pure charm!
Scrumptious Food as Decor
Here, Jordan gives us all a lesson in ‘food as decor.’ Every buffet item, whether sweet or savory, was clearly chosen for how prettily it would tie in with the shower palette. From the pear tart to the soup-filled bread bowl to the mini quiches to the white chocolate mousse in mason jars to the tempting macarons, all the way to that gorgeous ombre-layer cake—everything was just picture-perfect!
Even the fresh pears used as food card holders, the bottled drinks with DIY labels and caps, and the favors (Nutella truffles) in muslin bags trimmed with baby’s breath added even more delightful touches!
Can you tell how much we love this baby shower? In fact, we couldn’t help thinking this look would be fabulous for a bridal shower or even a wedding! Huge thanks to Jordan for the inspiration!
