Lumber Baron Inn Woodland Creatures Baby Shower
Many of you probably recognize this family since I have recently photographed them in celebration of Natasha’s graduation. It was so exciting to find out then, that Nick and Bela are expecting a baby. When Natasha recently asked if I could come photograph the baby shower they’re hosting at the Lumber Baron Inn I was all over it! The Lumber Baron Inn is such a cool place to host a baby shower. It’s so grand and I love all of the historic flair throughout the space.
They did a Woodland Creatures theme with a sort of French/New Orleans twist with their decor and I have to give a huge shout out to Das Meyer, the cake company who designed the three gorgeous baby shower cakes for them. They took the theme and really smashed it out of the park, in my opinion. Each one was a different flavor and I loved the pretty pastel colors and dainty gold rimmed edges of them. They were truly a work of art. One of the fun things that they did at the shower was have Bela and Nick cut into the cake to reveal what the gender of their baby is. So all of their guests were able to find out that they are expecting a baby girl when the Strawberries and Champagne cake flavor showed up on their plate.
Another really fun thing they did was to pass out these tiny little plastic baby figurines (Mardi Gras King Cake babies) and told everyone to vote for their favorite name out of the three that Nick and Bela are considering. Of course, they’ll still have the ultimate decision once she’s born, but I thought that was a really fun thing to do since most people I’ve met are pretty protective and secretive about the names they are considering for their baby.
It was really a nice afternoon with everyone getting to spend some time together chatting, eating the delicious food that Lumber Baron Inn put out, having some drinks, taking a few group photos, and of course, getting to see all of the cute baby items the couple were showered with. This baby girl will clearly become a Star Wars fan after seeing the presents she received. I can’t wait to hear which baby name ultimately wins!
Huge congratulations to Bela & Nick!
