Secret Garden Baby Shower (19 photos)
When I was asked to create a baby shower with the theme "The Secret Garden," I immediately thought of the Frances Hodgson Burnett Book by that name, one of my childhood favorites. I wanted to use florals, of course, but evoke more of a misty, monochromatic, mysterious mood rather than use the bright colors typically associated with gardens. I wanted to play with texture more than color.
The show-stopper of the event was definitely the paper flower backdrop, inspired by the 2009 Chanel runway shows. It only cost about $15 to make, and now it's a gorgeous art piece on my bedroom wall. I love getting double duty out of party decor!
