Summer Engagement Party

I have a client who recently contacted me about doing a summer engagement party in August. She didn't have a theme in mind yet, so I thought of some themes for her and decided on presenting her with two very different options.
The first was a black and white theme, which transitioned into "Diamonds and Damask." I had been seeing so many adorable black and white themed party supplies lately, that I thought this would be a wonderful, elegant look for the party.
There are just tons and tons of gorgeous damask parties out there and I think we could really whip up a gorgeous event if we go in this direction.

The next idea was a "Sunflower Summer" theme. With sunflowers in bloom all summer, this could be a gorgeous theme!
 Ironically, there was sunflower inspiration board on TomKat Studio just this week! I can't wait to see her new products!  Great minds think alike!
I am in love with these sunflower pomanders, and if we don't go this direction, I still want to make them for something!
