In our house, one of the greatest pleasures is when we get the opportunity to use my husband’s grandmother’s china during the holidays. As we prepare for Easter brunch, I felt it only fitting to share this lovely shoot from a few weeks ago.
I’m so thankful for friendors who are willing to pull together a shoot at a moments notice all for the sake of beautiful blooms. As they say, practice makes perfect, and I couldn’t wait to apply everything I learned during my floral intensive with Susan McCleary of Passionflower. With knife in hand and a renewed spirit, I reworked the designs in preparation for my shoot with Gigi & Laclede , Paige Gabert Photography, Fancy Fray and Cheney Place.
If you are unfamiliar with Holly and her vintage china rental company Gigi & Laclede you are in for a real treat. I could spend countless hours perusing her impeccable collection of vintage china. The inspiration is endless and Holly is a wealth of information.
Spring is such a wonderful time of year for flowers. I always look forward to welcoming back delicate sweet peas, spectacular clooney ranunculus, and flowering spirea.
I have to send out special thanks to my right hand, Amanda who loves to antique in her spare time. She always finds the perfect pieces. They definitely added that extra special touch to the tablescape.
One of my favorite elements was finally getting an opportunity to use my favorite antique napkin rings from Potterybarn.
Easter is the symbol of hope, renewal, and new life. May you be blessed with immense love from God, who will bring abundant happiness in your life by filling your heart with peace. Happy Easter, friends.
