Summer Garden Collection May 13, 2011

We are moving house in 4 weeks… from Rhode Island to the Florida panhandle! I am starting to wind down the shop, and am fulfilling orders in between packing boxes. I had not planned on creating any new party collections until we are settled in Florida but when Rikki contacted me about making an invite and matching party decorations for her daughter’s first birthday, I simply couldn’t resist!

So, I am working on a new party collection… Summer Garden. Think: butterflies, dragonflies and whimsical flowers. First birthdays are SO special and Caroline is Rikki’s first baby so I want this collection to be really pretty and cute! They are planning a backyard barbecue which is what we did for our daughter’s first birthday too!

First thing I do with any collection is think about the colors I want to use. Since Rikki is having her party outside, we decided the palette needs to be colorful and stand out. The four main colors will be soft green, hot pink, light pink and light blue. From there, I have added purple, soft yellows a peachy orange. Super colorful!
