I love the tradition of bridal showers as it brings together a bride’s closest women in her life in a spirit of love, friendship, family and shared experiences. And really aren’t some of the best times you’ve had been when it’s just you and your favorite girls!? When Sam from Gus & Ruby Letterpress asked me to create the flowers for her dearest friend and business partner Whitney’s bridal shower I was of course honored and excited! The luncheon party was at the chic, modern and super cool Blue Sky on York Beach, Maine. The color palate was a soft and pretty pale pink and peach which came to life in the flowers: peonies, garden roses, stock, astilbe and the sweetest wild roses that I found overflowing on the side of the road! I had been collecting some old white china and glass ware with gold accents which were the perfect vases to create vignettes on each table. The vintage vibe of the flower design along with gold mercury glass votive holders worked wonderfully against the modern, funky atmosphere of Blue Sky. Sam included fantastic details including adorable pink spun sugar nests with egg shaped cookies from Cookie Creatives by Jennifer at each seat. Each one was in a clear box accented with the perfect peach toned velvet ribbon. Special thanks to Emilie Sommer for the photos…fantastic photos as always! Stay tuned for coverage of Whitney’s beautiful summer wedding!
