Woodland Baby Shower at The Nomad

Inspired by the couple’s current home in NYC and their new home in Vermont, we planned and designed a woodland themed baby shower overlooking Manhattan at The Nomad Hotel. Using the woods of Vermont as our muse, custom drawn illustrations on the invitation were turned into one-of-a-kind stuffed animals for the baby to treasure. Animal shapes were laser cut from Vermont wood and engraved with each guest’s name to decorate their place setting.

Loved ones filled out cards of advice for the mom-to-be to get encouraged by during 3am feedings. Photos of the mom and dad when they were kids were mounted on wood and scattered throughout the brunch. These photos and the stuffed animals then went into the baby’s nursery. My favorite part of event design is creating custom pieces that the client can treasure for years to come. These items hold a sentimental piece of their family’s history.

For a bit of fun, we brought in the Tarot Society to read Tarot for each guest.

Seasonal blooms of thin similax vine, umbrella fern, ranunculus, freesia, scabiosa, and mum decorated the long communal brunch table.
