A Black and White Baby Shower

On Friday I shared a few peeks into our recent “sprinkle”, held for 3 of my college best friends who are all expecting their second baby. 
Today, I am sharing the super chic baby shower we planned for our friend Lauren, a first-time mommy-to-be. She and her husband are not finding out the gender, so it’s twice as exciting to wait for the big day when the baby arrives! 
When planning this shower, we immediately decided to center the party around a color scheme of black and white, Lauren’s favorite. With animal accents in gold and crisp flowers in green and white, well, I think it looked just like our beautiful mommy-to-be. 🙂 
Held at 10th & Piedmont in Midtown, we reserved two long banquet style tables and decorated them ourselves (it was like we were on an HGTV show, we did it so fast!). 
Hollie’s black and white striped table clothes made the whole table. Jill had coordinated small paper goods with the black and white invitation she designed, so the place settings looked fabulous. A combination of everyone’s gold chargers paired with the restaurant’s white plates and linens worked perfectly. 
I used the gold animals from Henry’s 1st birthday party to line the center of the table, along with my arrangements of white roses, green mums, yellow roses, and white daisies. 
A presh cookie from Two Crazy Cookies sat at each place setting as well.
