Remember when the word “theme” used to be like a bad word? Well thanks to crafty designers like KMK Designs, themes done right are the name of the game and this aaaadorable “Foxy” baby shower – with photos by Marcie Lynn – is no exception. AND it happened to include a make your own bloody mary bar which took it from cute to fabulous in no time flat!
Dani, the mommy-to-be, had plans to create a fox themed baby nursery. We used that as a jumping off point for the theme and design of her baby shower. We used a color palette of mint, coral, and white, with birch accent pieces throughout. Personalized details were incorporated in every possible way; signage, artwork, décor, and details. All of the décor is now in baby Asher’s room, awaiting his arrival! My favorite elements were the paper rosette wall above the fireplace, the flowers, the “Baby Asher Onesie” banner & signage, and the Bloody Mary/”Mom”osa Bar.
