If we are being totally honest with ourselves, January is not our favorite month. We are inevitably exhausted from the craziness that is always the fall season and a couple years ago we vowed to take January off for rest and recuperation. Inevitably, this rest and recuperation leads to feeling bored and despondent which leads to trolling social media which inevitably leads to us feeling useless. Unless you use social media as a way to market yourselves, or your business, which is something that we don’t do as often as we’d like. We could’ve used this time to look for an instagram growth service that would help us to improve the number of followers that we have, or to upload some posts that we think could attract more clients to us. We should’ve done this, but instead, we just scrolled through everyone else’s profiles, and this didn’t do anything to help our moods. These feelings make us think we shouldn’t be lazy in January, we should be out there working and creating. We then remind ourselves that in December we were so tired ( and sick) we couldn’t think straight and we vowed to take January off for a very specific reason, to rest. Why is resting so hard? These thoughts go through my head every single January, year after year and it always results in the same conclusion, resting is good but resting is hard. With the rest that comes in the winter so do the piles of images from all the hard work done throughout the year. This was the first shoot we did last Spring, we partnered with Lisa Blume and shared the styling tasks. Lisa acted as the fashion stylist and we did all the flat lays and prop styling. This feminine tablescape and lush bridal bouquet featured plenty of lush Spring blooms and are just Part 1 of 3 of the images we will share of this shoot. We had a ton of fun flexing our creative muscles and pushing creativity with some pretty imaginative stuff. Lisa is drawn to feminine high fashion and we love anything with a modern touch that requires a bit of a wild imagination. We thrive on imagination and hope these images leave you feeling inspired and a bit of excitement that will get you through the rest of this winter! Spring is just around the corner, hang on there dear friends! Our shoot was featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs last month.

To achieve your very own luxurious feminine look use plenty of texture in your floral pieces. A variety of texture gives depth and dimension to your pieces that lends to a very luxurious aesthetic.
