I came across this on JL Designs and just wanted to share with you if you had not seen this already. The theme for the shoot was “eco-chic”…designing in a sustainable way that is easy on the wallet and easy on the environment without sacrificing style. It was for the second issue of the online magazine, utterly engaged! If you have not checked that out you so should. Stephanie Williams Photography is the genius behind the camera. Sweet and Saucy is responsible for the tasty treats. JL Designs has so many incrdible tips on making a stylish eco friendly yet affordable day possible… read on.
The tablescape and bouquets featured local, organic flowers and everlasting flowers carved from balsa wood.
Melody from Sweet and Saucy created this beautiful cake with a homespun feel…going with a butter cream frosting is always less expensive than fondant.By incorporating the cake, desserts and sparkling lemonade bottles into the actual table scape, it lessens the amount of floral needed, saving on costs (and waste)!
The bistro chairs, china and napkins where rented. JL Designs decided to go a different route with the linens, they popped into a salvation army and found some great ivory sheets for $1.00 each! One even had an adorable eyelet lace border.
