Jan15 Spring Showers 2014

I know it’s a bit early to talk about Spring and see photos containing bright colors, green trees and sunshine… but here’s a shower that I just had to show you, and hopefully it will add a bit of spring to your winter day.

Designed and Photographed by: Melissa Oholendt

From Melissa:  I designed & photographed an adorable chic & colorful French-themed baby shower for one of my best friends, Faith Brue. Faith & her sweet family had recently moved into a gorgeous home in the Lake Minnetonka area with the most beautifully blue pool you had ever seen. So, instead of hosting the shower indoors, we decided to take advantage of the weather and host an outdoor pool party themed after Faith’s favorite vacation destination, France.

Her invitations were designed with a soft pink watercolor & calligraphy front as a nod to Provence’s design sense and sassy black/white stripe back to bring in Paris’s chic & modern style and carried both patterns throughout the food labels & bar signage.
