The Velveteen Rabbit

When asked by Occasions Magazine to style a photo shoot for their Summer 2013, we immediately jumped on the opportunity to dream up a baby shower! The Velveteen Rabbit, with its watercolor imagery and touching story was an instant inspiration. We selected a team of vendors who we entrusted to bring this storybook to life. Summerour Studio’s courtyard provided the perfect background, and we were lucky (yes, lucky) to have an overcast day. The neutral palette of cream and white was paired so well with tons of lush greenery. We added simple, yet meaningful touches such as watercolor stationery, delectable pastries, and fabric wrapped gifts. The handwritten runner and color pop mocktails have become signature touches of ours. And the day wouldn’t have been complete with our very own mommy-to-be model.
