We have been using this stand a lot this summer. We have changed the colors to match the event and what was being served. Most clients have used it as a Welcome Drink station for iced tea and lemonade, but one let us serve custom hot cocoa to their guests on departure from the stand. It was a huge hit! If you are interested in renting the stand give us a call!
Piper (my cavalier king charles spaniel) used to be part of the blog on a daily basis, then we we to updating the website and the season hit and the blog got pushed to the side and sadly the photos of her came to a stop, so I thought today was the perfect day to share a Piper pic…
I know I am partial, but isn’t she soooo cute?
We were thrilled to be asked to design a photo shoot for 10-20 film photographers… we got to pick the location, concept, style, design, vendors… just about everything and they (the fab photogs) just appeared and shot what our fun, wild, crazy brains came up with… it was awesome, freeing and so much fun to work with some of my faves in the industry.
Magnolia Event Design worked with Tenley Erin Young on this shoot and we decided somewhere in there to go native- native american boho and have fun with the long days of summer and the tribal trends and threads that were all around us.
Sitting at Shutter’s on the beach having brunch (so chi-chi, I know, I know…) I saw a killer mound of sand and thought, there is our mountain. We shot in the middle of a busy Santa Monica beach, but still got the vibe of being all alone.
Two of the four models are my very dear friends and I have always wanted to see them in front of the camera. Thanks girls, you rocked it!
LunaBella Makeup Art did everyones looks and man were we soooo excited to see the girls when they arrived on location.
I can’t stress enough, that when you give someone freedom within their art how amazed you will be. Same can be said for our cakes on this shoot… one had gardenia frosting… no, I am not kidding and yes, it tasted like heaven, if you happen to love floral flavors as much as I do.
I hope you enjoy the shoot as much as I enjoyed producing and designing it with Ten.
Oh and we had it featured on Green Wedding Shoes too! Thanks ladies!
We have a new studio and we are super excited about it!
We saw a beautiful, fresh, updated meeting space amongst the sad and drab brown walls and carpet. We quickly set about changing the space to reflect us and we did it all ourselves. From laying the flooring to painting the walls, beams and all of the furniture to fit the vibe we sought. Along the way Tenley majorly killed her ankle and if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes I would have thought she was trying to get out of sanding… ha ha. She is better, happy to report, but this quick change was a labor of love and a lot of work.
To celebrate our new pad we threw a party and invited the event industry to join us in christening the new spot.
I feel super blessed to be part of the Santa Barbara event industry and want to thank all of those who helped make our party happen… xoxo
