When an expert party planner and mommy-to-be floral designer combine their creative efforts – it makes for one of the most gorgeous baby showers we’ve ever seen. We can’t get over all of the sweet details that Christy Snowie of To La Lune Events incorporated into this colorful geometric-inspired shower.

Christy explains, “We had the pleasure of collaborating on a really lovely baby shower celebrating the soon to be little Benjamin Patrick Neal! Sarah Neal, owner & floral designer behind Catalina Neal Floral + Design couldn’t have been more darling on the bright and sunny San Diego day. Not only was she the momma to be celebrated, but she also designed all the florals for this fun day as well!

“The inspiration behind the shower came from our Sarah’s love for fun and funky meets bright and bold. We loved bring together a mixture of elements through each incredible vendor involved. From the abstract bold water coloring on Twinkle & Toast’s invitations, to the subtle geometric touches through the patterned rugs and mix match chairs via Folklore Vintage Rentals. There was a glimpse of cheery delight in every moment!”

The abstract animal print chargers add a perfect touch of whimsy! And we absolutely love the idea of personalized place cards that also act as favors for the guests. These custom coasters with Twinkle & Toast’s signature script are simply divine!

This beautiful macrame screen from Cindy Courson Design Studio was the perfect place for hanging the new onesie gifts. It also served as a great photo backdrop for Sarah and her guests.
