Simple Backyard Breakfast Shower

by Meg Keene, CEO & Editor-In-Chief

I wanted to share these pictures with you, because I found their simplicity inspiring, even though this is not technically a wedding. Ok, you’ve got me. It’s not a wedding at all. This adorable backyard baby shower thrown by photographer Loren Weltsch, but I think that these ideas could be used for a wedding shower, or (if you dial down the pink a bit) a simple backyard breakfast wedding. She served breakfast food, decorated with peonies and paper lanterns, and designed adorable invites to echo the theme. The best part about a breakfast shower or wedding? Simple easy food that you can cook yourself!

  • Beautiful invitations!

  • I threw a breakfast baby shower for my best friend. The food was really tasty and everyone got to get a bit dirty painting onesies.

    I think I like the idea of having a doughnut and fruit pizza at a shower more than a typical lunch.

  • A party is a party is a party. Love to see them.
