Tropical baby showers

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Enter the bright tropical colors that jump out of the freshness of the sky, ocean and white sands, reminiscent of flowers and fish in the most exuberant of colors.  A tropical baby shower is energetic and free: bright fuchsia blooms, luscious lime greens and navy blue to neutralize the excitement, just a little.  Imagine the lady in waiting in this colorful wrap dress, that outlines her blooming body.  The criss cross feature allows her continued wear once the baby is here with it’s nursing feature.  Imagine sexy strappy white (Or fuchsia) sandals to complete this summer look.  Nothing else matters.

Vibrant, fun and happy

Victorian inspired weddings and showers

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Nothing says tradition better than ivory, lace or Victorian inspired fare.  Hints of peach, flecks of gold and the romantic feel of ivory lace is all it takes to pull this look together. A wedding  or a baby shower like this expresses itself best in a rose covered garden with an awe inspiring view: a bright sunny afternoon under the shade of a gazebo surrounded by blooms.

The guest of honor, decked in a sexy ivory lace maternity dress with a dusting of gold powder over her shoulders, serves little petit fours, hand painted with glints of edible gold to her guests.  To complete the look, she wears her hair in a loose knotted style, graced with real flowers.

Romance is something that is always in style.  Classic, soft and beautiful.
