Pastel Watercolor Themed Bridal Shower - Skybox Event Productions - smitten-mag.com_0258

We love this soft hued watercolor inspired bridal shower.  Here’s how designer, Ashley Ham of Skybox Event Productions came up with the inspiration:

I wanted to capture the essence of spring and summer for this shoot by using a soft and feminine pastel color palette. The muted tones also played nicely with my watercolor theme; a representation of my love for art and painting. The shoot was focused around some of my favorite things to do during this season – indulging in a decadent dessert, sipping a refreshing cocktail, and most of all, enjoying it with some of my favorite girlfriends. To create a whimsical table setting befitting a bridal shower, a garden tea party, or a special birthday, I focused on flowers, desserts, cocktails, and table décor that tied in well with my theme. I also added a few personal touches for this shoot, which included hand dying the table runner and painting the ribbons used on the wine bottles.
