Party Recap

With the arrival of Spring comes cheerful colors, new fashion, and fresh events. I wanted to touch into all those aspects with this Chic Spring Tea Party photo shoot.

We incorporated pennant banners, pearls, and mason jars to give a slightly vintage feel. The pennant banners was something that I wanted to share in all sizes. Having the model hold the large banner, incorporating the banner on the invite and food cards, and also leaving different size banners on the table helped us achieve the light vintage color combo I was pushing for, but in a subtle way.

I came across the floral fabric at Target from the Shabby Chic Collection, a collection I love! My great grandmother’s tea set was where all of my inspiration came from for this shoot. It is as if my grandmother’s china and the Shabby Chic Collection were suppose to meet. wink
The models happen to be very close friends of mine so enjoying an afternoon of tea and sweets came natural. We all had several giggle moments.

We made using the word ‘chic’ fun by having the models hold up the chic banner, using it on the inside table display, and I also took the opportunity to take a few behind the scene shots with the sign as well. With my twitter name being Melissa Chic and my sweet online friends calling me Miss Chic I HAD to pose with the banner.
We completed the photo shoot inside, giving inspiration for an indoor tea party where we shared thank you tags, cookies, and more vintage touches. The mason jars was one of my favorites touches. Mason jars, ribbon, and pearls simply go together. The tassel garland brought in more color options and helped brighten the small display.
Thank you to all the wonderful people who helped me with this shoot. If it wasn’t for all of you (and my grandmother’s china) this simply couldn’t have happened.
