Once again I had the pleasure of joining forces with two of my brilliantly creative friends, Kelly Marie Uss (from Fleur) and Suzy Rohan (from Lily Red Studio). This time we put our creative juices to work to participate in the Inspired Creations (glitter and glam themed) Contest hosted by Elizabeth Anne Designs and The Sweetest Occasion. I adore both of these blogs, so I considered it an honor to be able to take part in this contest! I must give a huge thanks to Salvage One (one of my absolute favorite Chicago venues) for allowing us to use their amazing space as a backdrop for our shoot. The exposed brink, wood beams, gorgeous chandeliers, vintage furniture and perfect glowing window light helped bring our ideas to life!
In the beginning stages of the planning process, we had decided we wanted to create something that was soft, warm, unique and easily replicable. An early brunch reception is a beautiful, relaxed, and often less expensive alternative to the huge, extravagant, evening reception. We wanted to add warmth and a vintage flair to the glitter and glam theme, while still maintaining an organic, natural presence. So we figured what better way to enjoy brunch than with mini pancakes, french toast kebabs and honey. One thing I love about both Kelly and Suzy is their ability to take a simple idea and transform it into something extravagant. And that is exactly what they did here! Suzy’s paper products and branding were a perfect complement to Kelly’s florals and table design. I could not have been happier with the way this turned out!
