Shower Flowers Inspired by Art Inspired by Nature

As a surprise for Lindsay Sally (of Big Day Boutique) first baby shower, Cynthia Sally (her sister-in-law) had me create 2 paintings that matched her inspiration photos for her nursery. Lindsay wanted a sand-dunes beachy baby’s room that was no overtly “babyish” so she totally loved the paintings, so much so that I decided that for her second shower, I’d try to match the paintings for her shower flowers. So I designed floral arrangements that were inspired by art that was inspired by nature!

I did this by making 3 little oases and 2 vased arrangements. They each contained a variety of ethereal, natural looking materials both dried and fresh. Dried materials included curly willow and birch branches as well as cattails.  The fresh materials included 2 varieties of lily grass, viburnum, agapanthus, veronica, hypericum berries, and Queen Anne’s Lace. Other accessories like rocks, moss and teal beach glass completed the look.

I am sure that Lindsay was very surprised to see such unusual but perfectly befitting arrangements at her second shower. I will post photos from the actual shower itself soon!
