St. Patricks Day Styled Table

Back in February my girlie friend Jasmine, from Jasmine Nicole Photography, approached me about wanting to do an engagement shoot for St. Patrick’s Day. Of course I said yes but it was one of those things that, if it was going to happen, it would have to be fast! So we met to talk about what she was thinking and began contacting vendors. All in all, I think concept to execution was something like 10-14 days (and I was 7 months preggo!) Whoo! Many thanks and kuddos to Jasmine and everyone else that brought it together!

I knew I wanted to work with the lovely Amy Balsters, of Amy Nicole Floral Studio. So I mentioned it and Jasmine set it up. It was awesome! Amy is super talented and great to work with. She’s my go to for events so be sure to give her some love on Facebook!

We also wanted to work with Deanna Gonzalez for the cake and were excited that she agreed to it as well. The cake was super fun and fit right in on the gold table.

Jasmine’s girlie friend Mariel, of Mariel Joy Design Studio, did an amazing job creating the printables we used for the shoot. From the place cards to the Menu, it fit the fun, stylish vibe we were going for.

Jasmine wanted something really fresh and fun that was modern and now. We decided on the green and gold color scheme (it was for St. Patty’s Day after all!) with pops of pink. Amy did a great job of bringing the flowers together and creating that extra ump the table needed. I loved that Pantone’s color of the year was Emerald Green. It was the perfect opportunity for us to showcase that and have the table feel current.

Since my current obsession is gold flatware and we were able to use some from a friend for the shoot. I die for it. Really. It’s amazing. So much so, I decided to buy my own set.

I loved the gold dessert table! It took some reworking onsite and I GREATLY appreciated the feedback from Jasmine and Amy! Thanks for your patience ladies!
