As soon as I found out I was having a boy, I knew he would likely have the fun, free-spirited — and at times wild — personality of his dad, my husband Bobby. As such, I wanted to create an event that spoke to this wild spirit I plan to encourage him to explore, and while Pinterest was chock-full of “safari-themed” showers, I wanted to bring a more modern, bohemian feel to such a concept. To achieve this modern yet fun and laid-back feel, I opted for vineyard tables with benches, a unfussy tablescape with disposable wooden plates and earthly Himalayan salted candles amongst beautiful glassware and flatware from Otis & Pearl and simple, purposeful greenery and blooms. A few of my favorite DIY elements were the baby photo table assignment board, the Washi-tape covered tealights which I gave to every guest to light as soon as I go into labor and the hanging plants which added an element of wildness to the backyard. And don’t even get me started on the safari-scape/mudcloth-adorned cake by Frost It Cakery — which tasted even better than it looked!
