HOW TO THROW A SWEET & SIMPLE
Our Pure Salt family is growing! Over the past 6 months, we've welcomed three new babies to our brood, so we needed to throw a joint baby shower and sip & see for our sweet Design & New Business Manager Kelsea, as well as our Business Advisor Christopher. In honor of them and their new babes, we celebrated the growing of their families and threw this relaxed backyard get together with our team to shower them with all our love.

The backyard at my new house is FINALLY complete, and I knew I wanted to christen it with a super sweet and fun party. Living in Southern California, we love outdoor gatherings—all that sunshine, fresh air, and greenery make the perfect backdrop for any party! When planning for an outdoor venue, you don't have to worry as much about decor and atmosphere, as the setting itself provides most of that on its own. All I needed to orchestrate was the food & drink, entertainment, and ambiance.
The vision for this baby shower was fresh springtime. This meant leaning into the natural colors of the season: white linens, blonde woods, and plenty of pops of bright citrus throughout. We took advantage of my fruiting orange trees for a touch of organic and natural decor to complement the table, and incorporated parasols as both functional shade and an aesthetic design moment!
No baby shower would be complete without some of our signature Little Salt favorites! Festooned with delicate greens and florals, our Leo bassinet made for the perfect gift table.
Food & Drink
Our approach to hosting and party planning is to keep things simple. Offering small bites, like charcuterie and petit fours, allows guests to mingle and nibble and ensures you won't be stuck in the kitchen cooking or serving.
Drinks are always a necessity, and for a baby shower, we place great importance on offering fun and celebratory dry options like flavored San Pellegrino, lemonades, and even mocktails!
Sip & See
We are so grateful to have a team that feels like family, and we love watching their own families grow and fill with love. Taking a day to celebrate them and their new babies is such a joy, and we are beyond happy to have been able to shower them with all our love and best wishes for this new journey into parenthood. Congrats again to Christopher, Kelsea, and their families!
