The Playful Picnic!

Hello Everyone!

We did a styled shoot a little while ago with two amazing photographers, Stephen and Sou-Wah Ng (, and we are so glad to say that we are finally getting them up on the blog for you all to check out.  We really hope that you can draw some inspiration from these pictures and the playful theme that gave us the ideas to create for you.  We also like this shoot for its use of our vintage pieces that we have been collecting through the years!

All of the vintage decor that you see in this post or any of our posts are now available for rental at your wedding (along with flowers of course), we pride ourselves on finding the most interesting pieces to really communicate your style on your special day.

With this shoot, It really all started with the neon green door (we used as a table top).  The door paired with the quilt and then some 70’s era owls (that are actually Aqua Net hairspray covers!) really pulled together all of the remaining bits and pieces of this shoot.  The cake topper and colored craft balls had us all silly, we were completely in love with how cute it turned out…hopefully you all feel just as happy as we did when you look at it!

Let us know what you think.

Above:  Cake from nugget market, dress is vintage from the Alameda flea market, cotton crafting balls and antique cake topper.

Above: Lime green headboard and side table, vintage, from Bakersfield antique store.  Ribbons and name cards tied onto head board for assigned seating idea.  Creates colorful backdrop and gives more interest than a generic easel.

Above:  Boutonniere made of buttons and wrapped with thick velvet to imitate the touch and look of the cake decor.  Echoing a playful, fun feel.

Above:  Red carnations and berries really play up the contrast in color between the vibrant reds and deep turquoise glass.

Above:  Vintage strawberry napkin set gives an added pop of color and detail that cannot be overlooked.  Playing with the mix-matched textures of the quilt and the berry pattern gives the table more interest.

Above:  Under our table top (which is a barn door) is a chicken coupe.  We felt this would be just the right height, so that guests could nestle under with their pillows at a seat cushion.

Above:  We have alternating owls (candles and vintage hairspray covers) to decorate the table.

Above:  We have framed another fun print (reflecting the owls) in a standard picture frame and mounted an old address plate in the center to create an interesting table number.

Above:  We love us some sprinkle gum balls and an owl ring!

Above:  Vintage dress from the Alameda Flea Market, lime green fishnets from Nordstrom and Vincent Camuto shoes.  We like to mix funky inexpensive finds with more luxury to create interest, not only in clothes but to all of our designs!
