From Inspiration to Reality: The Design, II
December 2, 2009

I am generally blown away by the work that our Little Black Book members are putting out there. I am rarely surprised. But this shoot...totally surprised, totally inspired, totally motivated me to get up really early and start blogging away.

The From Inspiration to Reality Shoot was put together by two of our favorite LBB members, Millie Holloman and Salt Harbor Designs and used a collection of artists and designers that set out to interpret this amazing inspiration board that one of our readers put together. It's the coolest concept ever and with each shoot that we debut, I am more and more convinced that it's going to be HUGE.

Just take a peek at the pure gorgeousness that was happening...

About the gorgeous flowers, from Millie and Jennifer...

The centerpiece for our table was a combination of anemones, lambs ear, lisianthus, berries, French tulips, stock, spray and garden roses arranged in wooden boxes painted to coordinate with the colors. For the Bride’s bouquet, we decided on a more neutral combination of colors, using parrot tulips, privet berry, lamb’s ear, eucalyptus, anemones, and spray roses. Bridesmaid’s bouquet was a brighter mixture of garden roses, spray roses, lambs ear, berries, and parrot tulips.

About the table, from Millie and Jennifer...

We used an old table and painted it white, using mismatched pastel colored chairs as seating. Place cards were attached to the back of each chair with a large paper flower from The Paper Doll. We used patterned wallpaper as the runner and an old letter press drawer to set the arrangement on. We accented the large arrangement with smaller milk bottles filled with flowers. Table numbers were spelled out using letterpress letters. The menus and signage used a letterpress font.
