I absolutely love this holiday. Not for the chocolates or the gifts (those are lovely though!). But for the chance to celebrate my loved ones of course. From my husband to my gal pals to my horses (they are my big furry babies) to my parents, I always think of this day as a way to share love with everybody. Love is grand. Love is life. And for me, love is also a gorgeous table!
With that in mind, I was hoping to create two different tables; one perfect for “dinner for two” for sweethearts, and another more festive for the galentines in your life, whoever they may be. We worked with bold pinks that popped alongside softer tones and incorporated purples and reds too. The idea was the have depth and lots of detail!
Thanks to a fantastic line up of creative talent we celebrated this holiday in GRAND style with our imaginations running wild with love! I was so excited that every single creative on this shoot is a small business, owned by a woman. The color palette, the fun + festive decor, and everything that inspired me to create this was coming from a positive and empowered place so I felt like the vendors that signed on board were meant to be.
