If you’re on the hunt for event styling inspiration, you’re going to want to see Lauren Brant’s latest Instagram photos.
The former Hi-5 performer, who is expecting with partner Barry Hall, celebrated her baby shower over the weekend — the first of two.
As Lauren explained in her Instagram caption, she has family in Queensland and Victoria and will be celebrating in both states.
With family in QLD and VIC – I’m lucky enough to celebrate the expected birth of our baby in both states. The girls in my family have already planned an event although I am still 12 weeks out and Barry, along with the help of some very special ladies organised a shower today. #blessed It was SO nice to talk all things baby and motherhood, play some games and enjoy the cakes and decorations of the amazing team at @mintandsugarparties – honestly Melbourne friends, if you have any event to organise, I could not recommend these ladies more. I put total trust into them and they delivered above expectations! ???? Thank you to everyone who made today special and for your very thoughtful gifts for baby Hall xxx . . . #babyshower #babyshowerideas #whitebabyshower #babyshowerinspo #babyhall #28weekspregnant #expecting #pregnancyjourney #thankful #blessed #melbourneevents #uniteinmotherhood

Judging by the photos, the event’s styling would give any beautiful Pinterest board a run for its money.
Let’s just take a moment to pore over the details here: the lovely use of foliage, the tiny vases of flowers, those rustic-looking crates, the touches of gold. Simple but stunning.
According to Mint and Sugar Parties, the company behind the aesthetic, the theme of Lauren’s baby shower was “earthy with touches of gold”.
We also need to talk about the sweets, because what’s a baby shower without the delicious desserts?
Baby Hall’s impending arrival inspired a batch of very cute marble fondant cookies (below) and a “rustic-themed” cake.
Those marble cookies are acceptable for adult’s parties too, right? Asking for a friend…
This will be the first baby for Lauren and former AFL star Hall, who met while filming I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here in 2015.
Since announcing her baby news last year, Lauren has been candidly sharing her pregnancy experience on Mamamia. You can read her articles right here.
