Inspiration Board: French Patisserie Shower

Last Monday I shared some vintage cooking bridal shower inspiration with you, and I wanted to show you something else shower related that I've been working on. I came up with an idea for a theme and found some pictures to help my friend Cambria Evans of J.Bartyn Design + Manufacturing design a bridal shower invitation for Minted.com's latest design challenge. I thought of a French patisserie themed shower with an invite inspired by the lovely boxes from the patisseries of Paris like Laduree and Fauchon, but with a twist by adding in some punchy colors to make it more fun. I love what Cambria came up with for the invitation! Here's the final board I did with it all pulled together.

17 days until we leave for London for three months! Been to London or live there? I'd love to hear your tips and recommendations!!

  2. I'm a student in London and I love the City, though would definitely recommend you take some time out to see other cities or counties around, I'm definitely still a country girl!
    Have a look at Design Mom's blog and all the comments for fun ideas to do whilst in the Big Smoke!
