French inspired purple & pink bridal shower

categories Bachelorette + Shower

shades of purple and pink floral centerpieces

Since Sheena’s wedding was going to be in France she wanted to design a bridal shower with a feminine, French feel. The color story started with a swatch of plum colored velvet, then hints of navy blue, lavender, and yellow made it into the mix. Sheena’s favorite detail of the day (and ours too) was the photo backdrop she made from rose colored heart-shaped balloons. There to capture all the cuteness, mimosas, and mouth-watering macarons from Bottega Louie was the ever so lovely, Annie McElwain.
