Color Bloom 2011

The Color Bloom Designer Event was a tremendous success despite a continuing down pour and a closed road (because of the downpour.)  The event was to celebrate the colors of the year. Sherwin Williams Paints was a co sponsor of Color Bloom. The colors used were 6855 Dragon Fruit and 6531 Indigo, beautiful colors to work and create with.
Design Speak was a local sponsor and creator of the event. Colt Industries provided a wonderful space. Other contributors were Pottery Barn, Paper Dolls BoutiqueDesign & Detail, Traveling Tea by Kateri Meyer and Stimulus Baking Company. Beautiful photography is from J Pollack Photography.

One of Color Bloom's elements was creating a Royal Wedding table featuring the colors of the year.
 The background for the table was made from showroom length fabric samples. Fabric companies represented are Osborne & Little, Designers Guild, Scalamandre, Zoffany, and Harlequin. The samples were borrowed from Design & Detail.
 As a team member of Design Speak my roll in the event included floral arrangements, gift box designs (with  the help of Tricia Heliker) and general whatever.

 The colors, Dragon Fruit and Indigo were used throughout the space. Gift boxes were made using designer wallcovering samples.
 Even the cupcakes were made in the colors of the year.

 A fashion show was provided by Paper Dolls Boutique. The colors of the year were stunning on the models.

Color Bloom was a visually beautiful event full of friends, food and fashion.  What I found impressive was the way companies and people came together to create this happening. Congratulations to all involved.  I am looking forward to the next Color Bloom.
