T.G.I.F. It's finally Friday, and we've got a just the ticket to start your weekend the right way! This winter styled shoot features a variety of textures done the right way, in a cohesive presentation with a neutral palette, and we are wild about it! When Juli Vaughn, the creative director and florist behind this gem of a photo shoot, came to us with all of her amazing ideas, and we couldn't sign up quick enough. Juli's style is sort of magical. She has an incredible eye and way of juxtaposing items you wouldn't expect to work together make sense like no other. And then her floral design... outstanding!! Hearing true talents like Heidi, from OLOL, and Jamie, from Yours is the Earth, were on board was just icing on the cake. Dripping in gold and rich textures, the images that Heidi captured from this phenomenal photo shoot are so, soooo good.
The stars aligned for this one, right? Over the years, we've worked with Jamie a ton, and are always impressed with her thoughtful and beautiful designs. She recently launched Yours is the Earth, and from canning labels to wedding invitations, Jamie's pretty paper products are out of this world. Speaking of amazing things, we are floored by Heidi's photos from this shoot! The way she captures light is a thing of beauty, and her images tell a story that we are excited to see, every time. It's no wonder that this beaut was just featured on Ruffled.
Alison was inspired to create a fresh menu that featured pimento cheese grits with barbecue shrimp + honey bacon and dates stuffed with goat cheese + pistachios with a honey glaze. Her dynamic dishes, like the bosc pear salad with frisse + stilton bleu + roasted walnuts + cracked pepper vinaigrette or the citrus seared scallops with orange gastrique, were equally attractive and appetizing. And the shortcakes with lemon pastry cream + blueberries + a lemon syrup... to die for! Washing it down with a hot brandied tea wouldn't be a bad idea either.
The way we figure, surrounding ourselves with that much creative energy has to be good for our souls. We wish we could do it everyday, but will just keep drooling over these images until the next time. Happy weekend y'all!
