Purple Easter Decor

Happy Easter SMP-ers! We hope that if you celebrate this fun holiday, you’re knee deep in chocolate bunnies and all things family. If not, we thought we’d share a bit of pretty to set the mood. While Easter is usually all about pastels, we sort of fell in love with this purple hued brunch – designed by Emmanuelle at Poise Boston – and think that it would translate beautifully for even non holiday celebrations.

From Emmanuelle….My guests were all adults so I went with a minimalistic theme when it came to décor. I wanted to create an elegant yet comfortable environment that complimented the existing color palette in my home, while adding a bit of Easter personality {subtly}.

I have a mantel in my living room which is a focal point in the room as well as my largest wall so I wanted to utilize it to help set my space. I worked with Sarah at Spruce floral on the flower designs and as you can see, she did an incredible job. We landed on candlesticks set at different heights holding easter egg shells and flowers.

For the table I brought in the purple tones with varying muted silvery/purple/lavender table linens. I designed the table around my vintage champagne saucers which are made of a rare purple glass from the 1940′s. Each guest’s place was set with a wrapped box of teuscher champagne truffles which were labeled with zinc tags.

For the desserts I worked with Jocelyn at Mayflour Cake & Confections who is an amazingly talented cake and confection chef. We had lavender honey cupcakes, chocolate cake with buttercream frosting and macaroons with chocolate interior.

It really was a lovely way to celebrate Easter and welcome spring.

Casual Outdoor Engagement Session

As a New England girl who just survived the longest Winter known to mankind, I feel like this Summery Marshfield shoot from Shannon Grant is exactly what the doctor ordered. Sunshine, smiles and romance for days – all mirrored to achieve the same vibe that the couple is planning for their big day. Click here for even more.

From photographer, Shannon Grant…When Jillian (a local floral designer) contacted me about shooting her Engagement Session, I was on board right away! She mentioned wanting to incorporate their beloved pets into the session. Also, that she wanted something rustic and organic in nature to mirror what she had in store for the wedding. We chose a nearby field to hold the session in and it was perfect! I focused on creating images that were candid, romantic, and full of that glowing pre-sunset lighting that is just so glorious. Also, we decided on using film for the session as Jill used to photograph weddings and loved the look film brings to the table. Now she is a super talented floral designer for Beach Plum Floral Design but will always appreciate her photography roots.
