I love the decadence of this baby shower— the dark linen table cloth laid with purposeful folds, the dense flower arrangements with orchids, roses and deep greens, the macaroons in luscious colours, champagne on hand, and the gold cutlery. Have a look at this elegant venue that would be perfect for the theme.

Food platters laden with olives and black grapes, rich cheeses and candied nuts, figs and cured meats, preserves and fresh berries, fit the scene perfectly. It all looks mouthwatering, elegant, and completely delicious. See how you can create the perfect cheeseboard to suit this decadent theme.

The tables places themselves are elegantly set with a gold-rimmed plate, greenery, gold cutlery, and a dark grey linen napkin, pulling the table together. The dark colours and rich tones create a feeling of indulgence and generosity, topped with these great baby shower gifts — a perfect way to celebrate a special mama-to-be!
