STYLED SHOOT, My Exprience

Last Styled-Shoot of the year...

Last summer's Photo-Shoot "Woodland" was really amazing but I'm moving on to better and bigger things like this new styled-shoot guided by Jo-Anne Haley from

Jo-Anne chose a very beautiful Bridal theme she called "Winter Blush and Dusty Grey", a soft and romantic setting full of lace and shabby pinks.... and you know, I LOVE SHABBY! :0)
These images are just my own Instagram pics, soon I'll post the professional renditions on my Blog's section "Styled Shoots" so don't forget to visit it!!
For this particular Shoot I wanted to bring the romance of yesterday's glamour in a soft but eye-catchy way. I was given certain colours to play with like blush pink and dusty grey so I chose to fuse both with lots of shades of whites through fabrics, ceramics and lots of shiny glass.

We decided in three main setting areas; 1 the sweets hutch, 2 the lounging area and 3 the sweet heart table.

The hutch was gorgeous on its own...all that stressed wood in eggshell white and medium grey shelves were just perfect for the ceramics and glass ware I had in mind... what a contrast!
To soften the edges of the shelves I added some intricate lace to the top shelve, it really did the trick!!
I created a 5 piece collage of related objects (vintage window, veranda bracket, tall bird, sweets container and tree) right on top of the hutch just to add extra drama to this appetizing piece.

The lounging area was going to be simple but I got carried away...
I had so much lace to show off and a very large green cork board, I didn't think too long before I went for it and just covered it swagging the fabrics like an old fashioned window treatment, not bad for instant drama!! Then, the couch came along and so did my beautiful crochet and burlap cushions that I personally enhanced with luxurious trims and lace, superb!
From above (not showing in this pic) is a cute chandelier holding real candles that I actually lit for the photos, and on each side of this set I did a little extra by adding impacting items that smooth out the hardness of the plain  drywall behind.

The sweetheart table was dressed with multiple layers of vintage lace bringing the "past" in a subtle, feminine way.
The plates and crystals were neutral and classy putting emphasis on the darkness of the layered stack of scalloped serving tray and under plates which I then topped with a simple white plate with intricate edges just enough distraction for the traditional napkin that elegantly hugged a set of extremely modern and slick cutlery trio in 
onyx colour.
Using mismatch glassware added extra character and interest to the table, I recommend you keep the body shape of the glass but play with the size and colours.

The centerpiece was created by the talented Carol-Anne from Bloomin' Crazy. ....just gorgeous!!!
Notice the backdrop?... yes, they're embroidery hoops and they fit perfectly  not only inside the vintage wooden frame but with the theme. I've collected the doilies and lace pieces  over the summer not knowing what I was going to do with then until... EUREKA!
