Styled photo shoots are my absolute fave. Teaming up with my favorite ladies to show off their work and products truly makes me happy. Recently Melinda of Monarch Jewelry asked me to team up for a styled shoot to showcase their stunning Black and White Collection. I’m always game for any reason to get fancy and showcase unique ways to celebrate.
Melinda and I knew that Simplicity Collection by P & D Celebrations would be a perfect accent to our black and white styled event. If you don’t follow Pam please do, I adore her! I also knew the perfect location. Carmen has a beautiful yard and I’ve styled a display a time or two there and I’m sure there will be plenty more to come.
We had loads of fun during the shoot, as you can tell. To keep the champagne cold Melinda froze water balloons, such a fun and creative idea! This photo captures me squatting for a break… it was a slightly heavy display to be holding for multiple shots and this photo makes me giggle. Adding frozen water balloons to containers with wine bottles, infused water and any other Summer sip is a great way to keep drinks cold and in sync with any celebration.
While the graphics are perfect for children’s parties, we wanted to show their versatility and how they could be used in an adult party setting. We have shown a few examples of how the graphic labels can be used, but there are many more uses such as a hang tag, decorating a blank gift card, drink markers, or you could even attach them to larger circles and string them up as garland.
Hand down this is my favorite photo. We HAD to add in Carmen’s tassels which are popular for all sorts of events. It was a blast showcasing her work while laughing and trying to pose at the same time. Giggles with friends are the best even if you can’t recall the reason you were laughing this hard. Balloons with tassels, fancy jewelry, black and white attire and laughs make for one fun celebration.
