Modern Watermelon + Pink Styled Shoot

This shoot is a fun little project that I worked on with, Paper Mojo and Alice G. Patterson Photography and I just love how it turned out! A few months back approached me about creating an inspiration shoot using their gorgeous wholesale flowers and I was instantly inspired by the idea of a really bright and happy spring color palette. Various shades of pink and watermelon and a gorgeous variety of peony tulip took center stage. I had this vision of playing on the idea of oversized confetti and created a confetti-inspired wall installation by spray painting inexpensive cardboard cake rounds sourced from Michael’s. From there the rest of the details fell into place.

To further play on the confetti inspiration, I made a fun table runner using pretty paper supplied by Paper Mojo, simply using a paper punch to create a bunch of giant confetti. To show off the stunning peony tulips, I wrapped a pair of tall cylinder vases with pink mulberry paper and arranged the tulips to be tall and sort of wild looking. With loads of pink and bright punchy color, I wanted to make sure the flowers were equally fun.

And I always love showing you my little sketch so you can see how things evolve behind the scenes…

Many thanks to, Paper Mojo and Alice G. Patterson Photography for being a part of this shoot and to for inspiring such a bright and cheerful design. If you’re feeling inspired to tackle your own flowers for your upcoming wedding, bridal shower or celebration, I can’t recommend enough. Everything was shipped and packaged wonderfully and their customer service is top notch. Stay tuned a little later this week for even more of their gorgeous flowers!

Hey Lauren! I just used a pink paint pen from Michael’s, you can find them in the same aisle with pens/markers and scrapbooking supplies.

I love this! Punchy fun patterns with very happy pinks makes me want to have a ladies day in! Especially when ice-cream and sprinkles are involved! Thanks for the inspiration Cyd! Great shots Alice! What a duo!

Beautiful work! The confetti table runner is a great idea!

Love the marbled paper confetti on the table! I really like this idea of super-sized confetti- very whimsical and a bold statement.

Lovely, lovely fun. Isn’t it great to be a girl and be able to delight in all the lucious frills?!?!?
The peonies in the 4th and 10th blocks down remind me of an old-time fabric pattern I’ve seen – very gorgeous. And I love how the peonies intensify and “pop” in the reflection in the spoon in the 6th block down. The aqua on the candy stick provides a fun bit of contrast.
(Just so you know, I’ve got the song “I Like Being a Girl” stuck in my head now. :D
