With a vision of “a glamorous garden party with the nostalgia of Palm Springs,” this all-star team of creatives dreamt up this tropical bridal shower editorial we want to dive right into. Palm leaves and pineapples, bright colors and signature cocktails — this shoot from Charla Storey Photography, The Southern Table, Southern Fried Paper, Bella Acento, Layered Bake Shop and Natalia Issa is a summer dream.
From Charla Storey…Our vision was to combine a glamorous garden party with the nostalgia of Palm Springs. Graphic elements of palm leaves, pineapples and whimsical flamingos are featured throughout the party accessories designed by Southern Fried Paper.
“Our team was thinking what we would all love for a summer bash and we kept coming back to gold pineapples and palm leaves. We wanted to make these special details that are so Pin-worthy easily available for every celebration, no matter the size. We just launched our Tropical collection on etsy, which features all of the paper and party accessories from this adorable editorial like laser cut drink stirrers, napkins and invitations. Our favorite is the laser cut palm invitation folder. It adds a unique wow factor for any tropical event!”
The Southern Table brought the vibrant colors of summer with a garden twist. “We combined tropical elements like ginger, palm leaves and citrus with our garden favorites of coral charm peonies, poppies and sweet pea.”
Natalia Issa styled Amanda in side-swept perfection with a headpiece of freesias and ferns. Her coral tone lip accented the look perfectly. Our chic bride-to-be opted for a modern blush jumpsuit perfect for a poolside party.
Charla Storey Photography captured the lightness and vibrancy of our editorial collaboration. When you have a team this talented, the only thing left to do is celebrate the beauty! And our signature cocktail is the perfect recipe for this summer soiree!
Cocktail recipe: Mango Sunrise: Champagne, grenadine and mango, layered for a festive ombre cocktail.
