So what do you do when you get a call from the awesome folks at Fifty Flowers on a Wednesday morning letting me know that they want to send me a few stems....a few being 50, of beautiful peonies for a "peony inspired" photo shoot...and let's keep in mind that I'm working at the full-time job on Wednesday and Thursday and luckily, I was scheduled to be off on Friday. 

First thing to do, secure the photographer...I called the AMAZINGLY talented and super sweet, Larura Gordon.  Thankfully, Laura was available and was happy to help me out and did I mention, we had never met before, you would have never known this, as soon as she arrived at the door it was hugs and screams and laughter until she left!

Next, I needed a model, actually, I needed a model with great hair because I wouldn't have time to get a makeup/hair person for the shoot.  Who do I call, my girl Tori of Marvelous Things Photography.  Not only is Tori a great photographer, she's gorgeous and has the best hair to model floral crowns!

Okay, now I need a dress for Tori to wear for the shoot...no worries, got it covered.  Called my sweet friend Elizabeth at Richmond Bella Bridesmaid and told her a little bit of info about the shoot and she comes over on Friday morning with two beautiful Dolly Pearl dresses....Elizabeth ROCKS!!

So, today I'm sharing a few images with you on the outcome of our "peony inspired" shoot...lots of pretty floral crowns, a gorgeous bouquet and a couple of centerpieces....this is what happens with about a 24 hour notice...great friends and pretty flowers....I can only imagine the magic we can all make with just a little bit more time....Enjoy....xoxo

Happy Friday Lovelies...and it's bouquet Friday at the cafe!!....a few weeks ago when we were experiencing triple digit temperatures in Virginia, I participated in a wedding event at Pottery Barn...(more on that next week and it was a lovely event)....along with having my "floral and inspiration" table, I thought it would be fun to have a beautiful model walking around during the event holding my bouquets....cute idea, right!!

So, I asked one of my favorite models and honestly, she's like a daughter to me, the oh-so-beautiful and talented Soliel to help me out....and I'm so happy that she did...just check out the gorgeous images captured by my girl Tori of of Marvelous Things Photography...Tori is AMAZING....I love the way she captured Soliel's natural beauty and Tori has my flowers "dancing on the pages"...you know I love that!!

For those of who that have been involved in planning a "styled shoot", I don't have to tell you what all is involved....and for those of who that haven't had the pleasure of planning and preparing for one of the lovely shoots that you've seen around the blog world....let me tell you...IT'S A LOT OF HARD WORK!

One of the gorgeous shoots I was involved with last year, "Oh Happy Day", was one of the best ever for me.....best because of all the wonderful people involved!  Over the next few weeks, I want to highlight these AMAZING folks and let you get a peek into their world.  Today, it's all about the fashions and our beautiful models...and let me say, these ladies are as beautiful on the inside as well...I'm so proud of them and as my mom would say, they are "good girls"!

Thank you so much to Veronica of Veronica Sheaffer Bridal ........and to Lindsay and Elizabeth of Bella Bridesmaid (Richmond, VA).....to Lauren of Lo Boheme .....my girl Erika of Erika Nixon Makeup -  makeupondemand@comcast.net .....Kamala Bhagat of NATURALS Salon & Spa........and a HUGE thank you to my friend and she's just one AMAZIING photographer, Amelia of Amelia Johnson Photography

peonies

Happy Wednesday Guys...today, I thought it would be fun to share a little of my "floral world" with you...last November I was busy making a few lovely bouquets for a styled shoot for Munaluchi Bridal Magazine.  My inspiration for the shoot was one of my favorite flowers, coral peonies.  I wanted the flowers to make a statement and you just can't go wrong with peonies...I envisioned one single big bloom in the "bride's" hair...and from there, I made a lush bouquet filled with peonies alone....I wrapped the stems with a mix of colorful ribbons from Midori...one of my favorite places to shop for ribbon!
