Bakery Themed Baby Shower | Central Coast, CA



Baby Boy French Bakery Baby Shower Theme

"I have not seen anything like this. She (Caitlyn) made it an experience for those of us in attendance." - Guest


I couldn't agree more with every carefully chosen detail to replicate a french bakery in the middle of her courtyard. Caitlyn is expecting her first child, Bonjour bébé Carson, and she really designed an entire experience for her guests. It was the most magnificent baby shower I have seen.


Caitlyn was completely embraced by her loving friends and family, including her parents watching from above featured in a hand painted canvas as a gift from one of her hosts.




The French Bakery Details

As a wedding designer herself, Caitlyn didn't miss a section of this beautifully designed space even during final construction of her home. Take a look at the details.



Streamline Day-of Timeline Tip

Caitlyn and hosts really thought of everything throughout the day as they guided the guests through the sunny afternoon. What I really loved is the option for guests to place their gift in two piles, open now or open later. It reduced the amount of gifts being opened and really left it open to more interaction.




Fun Baby Shower Games and Activities

Aside from an an incredible charcuterie board, there was also a mimosa bar with wood fire pizza and desserts to come later in between games and activities like:


  1. Don't Say "Baby"

  2. Guess Parents-to-be Age

  3. Words of Wisdom

  4. Diaper Raffle

  5. And my favorite, a Caitlyn original game, "Labor or Lovin" - You'll have to ask her for the PDF on that one!


Candid Moments

I am really glad I had the opportunity to stay throughout the entire day to capture the joy and energy throughout the afternoon. Capturing these candid moments that Caitlyn can look back on for years to come.




Thank you again, Caitlyn, for having me photograph your baby shower.
