For the Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak, nothing less than an over the top celebration would do for her spring baby shower. Along with her Atlanta Falcons beau Kroy Biermann and the event extraordinaires at Wedding Soiree, the couple gathered with friends and family to welcome the upcoming arrival of their baby boy in style. With a keen sense of fashion that mixes traditional elegance and modern flair, Kim asked that the shower, held at 200 Peachtree, be built around the three G’s: Glam, Glitz and Glitter.

Baby blue, soft cream, white and regal gold accents were the colors of choice for Kim and Kroy’s baby shower. Though beautifully carried out through elements like the cake and invitations, it was the subtle placement of the colors around the ballroom that truly brought the design together; there were gold tassels hanging from each tall centerpiece, and fine blue filigree outlined guest cards. Stunning family and friends was Kim’s inclusion of the colors into her beautiful champagne gown, complete with cascading blue sash.
Perfect Creations & Design created the breathtaking flower arrangements that filled the ballroom. “We wanted to reflect Kim’s elegant style,” said Alisa Smalls, “something that was traditional with a modern twist.” To create the two signature arrangements, Smalls used catteleya orchids, vendetta roses, and aspidistra leaves. She also used hurricane vases and gold accent pieces like tassels and ribbons to make sure that each piece was glam, glittering and glitzy!
Taking center stage at the shower was the towering five-tier cake from Classic Cheesecakes & Cakes. The giant treat featured five delicious flavors: chocolate pound cake, vanilla pound cake, lemon pound cake, raspberry pound cake and Bailey’s pound cake, each with their own unique filling. The outside of the cake was inspired by Kim’s circus theme and was covered in blue, chocolate brown and gold icing.
Playing up the festive air of the party, upon guests arrival to the ballroom they were met by a full nursery suite. The nursery was complete with a gold gilded rocking chair, white furry rug, baby dresser and crib, which cleverly doubled as the party’s gift table.
