I am helping put together a shower for the daughter of a friend of mine. I get to do the the decorations for the table, yeah! She is having a girl and we decided to go with a hot pink and green color scheme instead of traditional pastels. Bright colors fit well with the mother's vibrant personality.
I started by going through my stash of things to come up with some ideas to play with and came up with a beautiful bright green Pashmina scarf that will anchor the display and be a perfect base to build from. Silver looks great with pink and green so I pulled out some silver and pewter pieces and came up with a creative cupcake stand made from a bowl with a round piece of glass on top.
Instead of a traditional floral display where the flowers are formally arranged, I used a galvanized bucket and clumped groups of flowers and sticks together to create a more informal look. My friend had a darling rocking horse and some silk flowers she let me borrow to complete the display.
I love to get creative and pull together a great look for a party with things I already have. If you need a few extra touches, chances are that you have a friend that has the perfect piece to round out the look. I will post more pictures later of the actual shower so you can see how the table came together. Today I am joining Cindy's Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home.
