Lil' Pumpkin Shower

I love design. I love fall. I love cool weather. This baby shower took place in early November and I thought it would be fun to incorporate some touches that come with the fall season. We were going to served soup, salad and crusty bread to go with the cool crisp fall air, until we found out it was going to be 85 degrees. So we switched to sandwiches and salad! That's Southern California for you!. Grey and purple became the color scheme and I was excited when we found grey pumpkins. They looked beautiful with the pops of purple flowers. I got to design the flowers for this event and I always enjoy putting flowers together on a small scale event. I loved the tones of the fresh kale and how they paired nicely with the water color elements of the shower. I hand painted the backdrop using liquid watercolor and then attached a big green garland to it. Fresh greens bring so much life to design. I love incorporating them.
