In July, I designed the florals for a baby shower at Il Fornaio in Santa Monica. The event was hosted by a celebrity actor/director in honor of her assistant, who was expecting her first child. The mother-to-be is originally from Sweden, so we kept the palette crisp and somewhat modern with white ceramic containers and a textural mixture of green & white flowers. Favors for the attendees were miniature arrangements that sat at the top of each place setting. Wouldn't you love to go to a shower and head home with fresh flowers??? This treatment also creates a lovely runner of flowers to decorate long banquet-style tables. Approximately 40 guests sat at a long table in Il Fornaio's sunroom overlooking the ocean. Such a serene location, and a perfect intimate setting for this group.

Flowers included green roses, white lisianthus, green spider mums and kermit mums, queen anne's lace, white statice, ferns, bupleurum and other seasonal blooms & greenery.

Tourists walking down Ocean Boulevard in Santa Monica could peek in the window and see this loveliness! I imagine they all wished they were inside....

Welcome to the world, little baby!
