Tuck back into winter for just long enough to enjoy this dreamy shoot from some very talented ladies, including Ali Harper, Ginny Branch, and Amy Osaba. Says Ali: “For this shoot we were inspired by a painterly interpretation of a winter night. A moody palette of midnight blue, dusty rose, and gold guided our design.”
“We covered the table with an old schoolhouse chalkboard, complete with cracks and scribbles to mimic the night’s sky dotted with sparkly mercury glass votives. The beauty of having a dark backdrop allows for all the colors, particularly the flowers, to really glow. Amy Osaba collected some wintery branches with dried leaves to add a coppery touch to her arrangements. Never underestimate the beauty of what you can forage during the winter. Dried leaves, seeds, and pods add textural variety and movement to any arrangement.”
Chef Alison Leuker from Sun in my Belly created a gorgeous (and healthy!) salad for the evening: Arugula with Blackberries, Almonds, and Jalapeño Lime Vinaigrette.
Here’s a great tip: “If you have a modest budget I highly recommend the power of candlelight. Have a few show-stopping arrangements but drench the space in candlelight. The warm glow makes everyone look more beautiful and the evening will be nothing short of magic.”
