Milk and Honey – Styled Baby Shower

Posted on: December 2nd, 2014 by Carolyn 2 Comments

Today we bring you a baby shower that invokes a sense of calmness, beauty and charm without being overly themed and decorated.  There is something so special about being able to pamper a soon-to-be-mum but to be honest the `typical` baby shower can sometimes be a little overdone.  We wanted to bring you something fresh and unique, that would inspire you to recreate the same look by using what you have at home and perhaps combining them with a few hired items if necessary…everyone has milk and honey in their kitchens and so this became our theme…a milk and honey inspired baby shower.  All you need is a beautiful, natural setting, some fresh flowers, a few neutral coloured crockery pieces and delicious treats to be able to create this effortless look.  Think rustic farm, mix and match, earthy `organic` colours, carrot cake, oat biscuits, and you have got the picture.  The best part of this theme is that the mum-to-be can relax, unwind and enjoy herself while celebrating with special friends.  Nothing formal at all!

We cannot get enough of these images captured by Melissa Beattie Photography at The Farm and know you are going to love them too.  Keep posted for Part 2 tomorrow morning as we bring you a whole lot more inspiration…


It was a privilege to work with some of Dubai`s finest suppliers and what a fun morning we had together.  It was amazing to see how everything came together perfectly and I want to thank everyone involved especially our gorgeous models who have both had their beautiful babies since the shoot.  If you would like to recreate this look and need a little help please find the contact details of all those involved.
