Inspiration to Reality Board Winner
I was so honored to be asked to participate in a photo shoot that the lovely Miss Abby from Style Me Pretty was coordinating, with Yumiko of Hana Floral Design, Jennie of Jennie Fresa Beauty Library, Beth of the White Dress by the Shore, Karen of Grapevine Invitations, and Justin and Mary of Marantz Photography. We all came together at the Back Porch in Old Saybrook. It was an incredible collaboration of creativity, design and talent.
Abby had reached out to readers to submit an inspiration board and after looking through the many submissions we selected one as a winner to bring to reality for the shoot. As I went through the boards I was immediately drawn to Bran Coprata's vision. The color palette, a mix of reds, pinks and turquoise was one I had been dying to use in the design of an event. A 50's inspired style with girly, super flirty details... it was perfect!
Inspired by the bold colors and perfect combination of details, making the board come to life was so much fun. The design board created the perfect mood for an event, using color to create energy and ice cream, cherries, and the beach to illustrate a feeling of whimsy and nostalgia. Some of my happiest memories are at the beach , eating ice cream and soaking up the Summer. This is the emotion that this board taps into. So I thought all of those details were incredibly important at bringing the table to life to create the mood that was designed in the board. We used bright cherry red latte bowls for the bases of the flowers and a mix of vintage pink cut glasses. We found a polka dot linen from Party Rental to capture the playfulness of the board. Layering vintage linens from Yumiko’s personal collection over the polka dot linen helped us to blend the details of vintage and modern.
