Welcome to Grishma's Baby Shower!
A modern shower incorporating elements of marble, tropical greenery and gold.

The gorgeous balloon and greenery backdrop arch is the creative handiwork of Bloom Floral & Events.  I'm in awe of the artistry involved in this arrangement.

The Courtyard Banquet in Freehold, New Jersey provided the perfect setting for this fresh and modern shower.

Who's with me when I say these understated vases of greens are pure genius? Water, tropical areca prawns and a floating white candle create an understated but outstanding trio.

The marble and gold foil fondant cake was made by Fancy Cakes of Freehold, NJ. Check out their cake gallery on Instagram here.

Champagne Baby Shower Favor Tags pop it when she pops

Guests were treated to champagne baby shower favors.  Personalized tags read, "Pop it when she pops!  Enjoy a toast when Baby _(name)_ arrives".  Such a great way to invite friends and family to celebrate Baby's arrival with a collective toast.  Cheers!

Not a detail was overlooked at the Liberty House in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Tied around bottles of mini champagne, I have to ask - does life get any better than this?!

Thank you for sharing your 'Bonjour Bebe' baby shower brunch with us, Mama Pranisa!

From the gorgeous ranunculus floral arrangements to the cucumber mint spritzer,

each and every detail was so beautifully appointed. Cheers!
