Bun in the Oven Sprinkle :: Baby Shower Inspiration

Share To:

One of my besties, Meredith Nelson is an amazing photographer located in Marblehead, MA. Meredith just sent this gorgeous Bun in the Oven Sprinkle over that she photographed. Dreamed up and styled by the uber-creative Sarah of Lil Hoot, this sweet baby shower is absolute perfection. There are so many gorgeous photos, I had to include them all. You’re going to love all of the delicious details!

From Sarah:

As soon as my friend and colleague stacey a fabulous baker/owner, of Sugar on Top, became pregnant with her second child, Lil Hoot wanted to throw her a Bun in the Oven Sprinkle.  It could not have been a more perfect “theme” for my sweet baker friend! I used a lot of play on words like the banner that read ‘let’s toast the bun in the oven!’ which I hung over the vintage toy kitchen that we gifted the baby to be. We places a sign on the kitchen that read “baby butler’s kitchen – grand opening february 2012” We also set up another toy kitchen, as well. I used an aqua quatrafoil contact paper to line the shelves of both kitchens. Both kitchens were covered in sweet treats and champagne was kept cool in the “sinks”. I even put the guest of honor to work and had her bake some of her delicious sugar cookies in stripes and polka dots to match the party decor, as well as cake pops, with sugar on top. One display of the cake pops was in a pink toy toaster with a label that read ‘cake pops- the best thing since sliced bread’. Graphic Designer, Jayme Marie Designs created all the fabulous paper goods – using a diner font for all the menus and the most darling graphic of a vintage oven with a bun in it!  Guests were given brightly colored polka dotted pot holders by Jessie Steele, which also held the napkins/utensils.  The favor tag read ‘thanks for the sprinkles of love for Stacey and her bun in the oven” tied with baker’s twine. An adorable red velvet aqua cake with pink and red sprinkled hearts {inspired by Sprinklebakes} was lovingly baked by Pickwick Baking Co. , as well as brioche Cinnamon buns and delightful macarons in 5 vibrant colors/flavors. Mommy-mosas and Belly-inis, as well as Preggers Punch were offered in sugared rimmed aqua champagne flutes. As usual, the amazingly talented Meredith Nelson captured the joyful spirit of the event perfectly and also managed to snap a few shots of Stacey holding a fresh-baked bun in front of her bun in the oven! I made a garland using baking twine and cupcake liners {inspired by blog, hey look} to decorate the space as well as hung brightly colored whisks and spatulas with multi-colored ribbon from the ceiling. I kept everything on the toy kitchen on a small scale using small baking dishes and ramekins in bright colors, and even used measuring cups to display the cookies!
