sharon taylor designs

after hearing joanna’s exciting baby news (congrats, jo and alex!) yesterday i couldn’t resist sharing this fun “eclectic baby bash” from event designer sharon taylor of sharon taylor designs. sharon used so many fun details to set the scene, like milk jugs (filled with laundry detergent) holding crepe paper balls, a flea market stork with a hand knit baby sling, and vintage toy animals. i love the spin on a traditional baby party (although i know the taxidermy won’t be for everyone) and the clever use of vintage items. click here and here to see more of sharon’s work online. thanks to sharon and congrats again to joanna and alex!

    I love when people think outside of the box for showers. This is such an amazing example. The animal montages are so cool! (especially the stork with the baby in the basket – too creative!!)

  2. oh my goodness, thank you SO much, grace! and this party decor is so beautiful — i’ve never seen anything like it! xoxo

    I love this unique shower. The African deer with the turquoise “hat” at top. The milk jugs with the crete paper balls are great.

    I love everything about this shower. The mix of new and old, the clean white and the taxidermy are all wonderful.
