Color Inspiration | Flower Market

Before we start on any project big or small, we dive into planning each of the 7 (yes seven!) design elements. Color is one of the design elements that sets the stage for projects. Every color has it’s own story and mood on it’s own. Combining multiple colors together we are able to visually tell a more complex story and begin to bring projects to life!


Fellow milspouse and entrepreneur, Shakira is an event planning fairy. She has such a talent to bring together vendors to execute her vision! I was overjoyed when she asked me to design the invitations and a few details for her daughters’ (yes both!) birthdays. This particular custom design was for her older daughter Raegan’s 4th birthday.

She wanted that feeling of being surrounded by flowers inspired by the Paris Flower Market feel. We used the gorgeous blush and magenta flower colors for the palette and built it out from there with a lot of black and white. To provide a pop of excitement and fun we added in a bright green (and not included in the palette, but a sunny yellow)!




Many creative programs (Adobe Suite, Procreate, etc) have a color picker or color grab tool. Download the image above and use the tool to snag these exact colors in your own project.


Alternatively, the hex codes for each of these colors are listed below so you can quickly copy and paste.
