Beautiful Baby Shower Inspiration at Norton Grounds

Baby showers come in all shapes and sizes and don’t have to be all pink and blue. On a chilly January afternoon my amazing friends threw me the most fabulous baby shower, and it was too beautiful not to share on the blog. 

The event was organised and beautifully styled by Event Planner extraordinaire Anna from Golden Pineapple Hospitality (who also happens to be one my wonderful University friends).   

Before the baby shower got underway these gorgeous images below were taken by awesome photographer Tom Durn.

I hope this blog post helps with your baby shower and wedding inspiration. 

The Venue: 

Tipi at Norton Grounds

The baby shower took place at Norton Grounds in their brand new Tipi.

The Tipi is fabulous, perfect for smaller events when the main Cotswold stone Barn at the venue is too big, and your event doesn’t call for a large scale marquee.  In the summer you cold easily roll up a few of the sides for an indoor outdoor vibe. But as it was January and a little chilly, we kept the sides firmly down, and the heaters on full blast so that it was lovely and toasty. 

Norton Grounds is one of Golden Pineapple Hospitality’s main venues. It a gorgeous farm based venue, just outside Chipping Campden in the North Cotswolds. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside and hosts exclusive weddings and parties. Norton Grounds also offers beautiful self-catering cottages and bed & breakfast rooms. 


The Styling:

The styling was stunning. Beautiful soft green linen tablecloths adorned two long trestle tables with wooden cross back chairs placed either side. Beautiful glassware complemented the plates, gold cutlery and salmon pink linen napkins. While dainty class tea light candles added a warm elegance. 


The flowers:

Oh my gosh, the flowers. They were the most gorgeous floral arrangements of delicate white flowers created by Abbie Digweed Cotswold Florist. The flowers were displayed in an assortment of glass vases and placed down the centre of both tables. Such beautiful exquisite flowers, including snowdrops, lisianthus, roses, spray roses, and many more flowers, that I am not sure on the names of!

My favourite was a delicious chocolate ganache dessert pot. We also had a beautiful drinks station filled with teas, coffees, hot chocolates, nozeco and processo.

Wow, the cake, what can I say about the cake, it literally brought me to tears. I was so grateful to my incredible Vanilla Pod Bakery team who created such a beautiful, beautiful baby shower cake. Working in collaboration with Sweet Dee’s Bakery. The cake was an elegant show stopper and tasted absolutely amazing - the team went for my favourite flavour of course, Belgian Chocolate Truffle.  The colours matched the soft green of the overall baby shower vibe perfectly too.
