P and A were asked to come up with a design for a black and white winter wedding shower at 94 West in Orland Park, IL. The room had lots of wine racks and an industrial modern feel with flaming red chairs. Playing off of the chairs, invitations and color scheme, they came up with a “Kate Spade” inspired theme with black and white table runners, silver mercury glass votives, and vintage accents throughout including a vintage suitcase (a nod to the honeymoon spending money gift suggestion- the bride and groom were set on traditional shower gifts). The bride (a fellow “Kate” herself) was delighted!
B. approached Pockets Filled with Posies to help her shower her niece with love at her “Bridal Shower Tea.” The colors chosen were pinks and apple green. The shower was held in the party room of a condo in the heart of the Goldcoast with amazing views of the city and lake.
B. was interested in a soft, feminine, classic and vintage vibe, and was planning on using a family heirloom silver tea set as a showpiece for the celebration. Once A. and P. heard the words vintage and feminine- they knew immediately what they would use- their vintage milk glass collection!
Moss, pink and white garden roses, pink spray roses, seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, belles of ireland, white dhalia’s, pink rennaculas and green hypericum berries were chosen to create a 5 bud vase cluster on each table as well as a cluster for the serving table and a couple extra arrangement that were scattered around the room (and yes, we STILL had milk glass left over! We. Love. It.)
Special thanks to Maureen West of Maureen West Catering for introducing B. to Pockets Filled With Posies!
