Preppy Mod Baby Shower: Tabletop Details

I had so much fun styling this preppy mod baby shower for the premiere issue of The Party Dress Magazine.  It combined some of my favorite things right now…..the color yellow, the Greek key pattern, beautiful pink tulips and a modern dessert table that I could spend hours drooling over!

Inspired by our Preggo Baby Shower Collection, the table held a few special details that I think could provide you with inspiration for any type of Spring party.  We carried the Greek key pattern from the invitation into the table linens by making table runner out of our new “fabric by the yard“.  I think it would have been a really busy tablecloth had it be an all-over pattern, but by using two runners over a crisp white tablecloth, it helped to break up the pattern and create a modern look.  I always like adding a vertical element to my tables to really define the space.  Eyelet paper lanterns added a sweet, preppy touch without taking the attention away from the colorful table.

I got creative with my napkin treatment by stuffing the green napkin (held with a pink gerber daisy napkin ring) inside the over-sized, plaid mug.  The mug was going to be used to serve a Spring soup in, and it freed up some room on the table, too.  The pink placecards added a nice pop atop the patterned runners, and tied in the accent color from our gorgeous centerpiece of pink tulips.    I just fell in love with these tulips….they are called parrot tulips and have amazingly beautiful feathered edges.  And if anyone is wondering….that centerpiece took 4 dozen tulips!

We used some darling accessories for this tablesetting, and they all came from Crate & Barrel!  If you are looking to re-create this look, you can find these products here: white eyelet paper lanterns, yellow salad plate, pink gerber daisy napkin ring, yellow plaid mug.

Stay tuned tomorrow for more details on the delicious and darling dessert table!
