I realized that I never posted pics here of the flowers I did for my own baby shower! We had a fun co-ed shower hosted by my friend Lori (of The Purple Tree Photography), and she took wonderful pics at the event to boot!
Because I think it’s fun to compare inspiration to reality, here is a shot of the Pinterest board I made before ordering the flowers. I ended up not getting the celosia (color was too rusty in person w the other stuff), and subbing in anenomes for poppies, which were extremely anemic. I picked up some geranium leaves on site, and finally added some beautiful pieris to my cart. I think this is about the average degree of pre-planning and ordering vs on site substitutions and new inspirations that happens with my designs, and I wanted to share so clients can get an idea of the process.
And here are some shots of the finished designs. By the way, “Pinguina” is our pre-natal nickname for our baby – she looked like a little Penguin on her 8 week ultrasound, with little arm buds just starting to form, and the name (Penguin in Italian) stuck : )
