Words from the Vendors

From Little Vintage Rentals:
This shoot was styled to inspire a bridal shower tea party with a 1960′s mod twist filled with pattern and a bit of humor. Of course, a spot of pink tea is to be expected for any proper tea gathering! A watercolor and calligraphy hand painted invitation from Fleur de Letters is teeming with floral motif inviting guests for a proper High Tea. Personalized escort cards are each a mini work of art for guests to treasure.

Our model, Ashley delights with quirky humor in brightly colored vintage inspired dresses from Ruche and jewelry from Confetti by Annette. Handmade floral head pieces from Esther Jean adorn the amazing mod hair styling work of Sabrina Gilbert while Jha Villanueva delivers the perfect 1960s mod eyeliner and makeup.

Vintage mismatched floral china and flatware from Little Vintage Rentals set the tone creating geometric patterns alone in photos with some amazingly crisp photography from Fiona Medler. The cake trio in the photo shoot’s inspirational color palette of yellow, blue, and pink are each a masterpiece of confectionery delight by Made in Heaven Cakes.

Finally, some table inspiration with mismatched floral china and flatware settings accompanied by crystal salt shakers serving as individual bud vases and escort card holders. Petite flower arrangements in antique silver sugar bowls and creamers where styled with fresh variegated nigra, lisianthus, and esperance roses from Blooms by the Box. For a variation on centerpiece options, a lemon leaf and mini calla lily garland was created as well!

Words from the Vendors

From Violette’s Flowers:
Connie bestowed upon me one of the best color palettes I could have possibly wished for: coral, blush pink, and gold. After perusing the flower market in preparation for her centerpiece mock-up I decided on a medley of dahlias, zinnias, succulents, stock, roses, eucalyptus, and billy balls. And to top everything off the succulents and billy balls were spray painted gold to give that extra metallic accent to her pieces.

Once the centerpiece was bride approved, I ran with the same theme for the personal flowers. To soften up the bridal bouquet I opted for two personal favorites of mine: ranunculus and garden roses. And when I stumbled upon rolls of gold glitter ribbon at the supply store, I knew I wanted to use them for the bouquets and boutonnieres.
