Baby Shower Flowers

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 : )

Katie - Lovely shower flowers! I’m curious what the little bell shaped white flowers with a slightly purple stem are called. It looks a little like Lily of the Valley to me, but the stem isn’t right for that. Thanks!

Kate - Thanks Katie! It’s Pieris Japonica, also known as Andromeda. Such pretty stuff when it’s in bloom
