With vintage safari animals; lions, tigers, bears (oh my!) giraffes and monkeys found throughout the space you will love all of the wild kingdom details!

“Think jungle animals and elegant decor don’t go hand in hand? Think again! This rustic safari animal baby shower is not only adorable but also super elegant. It goes to show that you can have your three tier animal print cake and eat it too… But really, these parents to-be were showered with a soiree full of fun & games (hello boggle and beer pong), a stunning setup of rustic tables lined with vibrant florals, yummy food and drinks, and people they loved. What more could you want?” via Inspired By This

Held on the grounds of a private estate in Los Angeles, we filled the backyard with rustic farm tables adorned with burlap table runners and unique vases filled with florals in shades of green, apricot, persimmon, pale yellow and cream. Also placed along the runner were adorable vintage safari animals; lions, tigers, bears (oh my!) giraffes and monkeys! These cute mementos could be found throughout the party. The place settings consisted of wood chargers with textured white china, green vintage glassware, wood handled flatware and taupe linen napkins wrapped with horn napkin rings.

The Kitchen For Exploring Foods served delicious tray passed hors d’ oeuvres and a tempting spread straight from the grill. Guests also enjoyed specialty cocktails “Baby Girl Binder”, “Mama-to-be Mojito” and “Father-to-be-Fizz” from our rustic bar covered in natural greenery, and more of the adorable vintage animals. Our cozy lounge furniture served as a perfect area for guests to relax as the evening evolved and fun games such as beer pong, cornhole, boggle, yardzee, jenga and pick up sticks were enjoyed throughout the event!

The stunning images were captured by Amy & Stuart who also photographed the couple’s wedding! A true full circle moment.

Britney Spears’ Baby Shower Bash

Sometimes the best way to find motivation for the future is to draw inspiration from the past, and that is exactly why we love looking back at past parties and events with which we have been involved. Among our favorites is Britney Spears’ 2005 Baby Shower Bash which left a colorful mark in our memory and will forever have a place in our hearts.

We were honored to work alongside Britney Spears to dream up and design the intimate Moroccan-themed baby shower which welcomed her first son, Sean Preston Federline in late summer 2005, and can’t wait to share all the colorful details with you. To see the details of this blossoming baby bash and get the behind-the-scenes scoop on a celebrity shower, keep reading!

Bursting with color and culture at every turn, Britney’s baby shower was located right in the pop sensations garden, where we transformed the atmosphere to a modern Moroccan-themed wonderland. Upon arrival, guests kicked off their shoes and walked barefoot through thousands of pink, orange, and red rose petals into a vibrant arrangement of tiki torches, tents, and colorful umbrellas which set the scene.

The small collection of family and friends in attendance lounged on colorful cushions in the lawn where they laughed and chatted to the backdrop of traditional Moroccan music. Henna artists and fortune tellers enchanted guests with their skills, while they basked in the late-summer sunset.

As the celebration continued, guests gathered in the tent for a delicious dinner, tender toasts, fun games and heartwarming family time. The pink and orange tent was cozy and glamorous, with dainty blooms hanging overhead and beautiful billowing bouquets by Mark’s Garden tying the table together. After a delightful meal and sweet gift exchange, family and friends ended the night on a sweet note with an elaborate cake that was shaped like a traditional Moroccan pot with a darling baby peeking its head out.

From the barefoot floral entrance to the magical Moroccan music and every enchanting element in between, Britney Spears’ baby shower was one of our favorite events to date and we love looking back on this timeless treasure! To see all the darling details, keep scrolling!
