5/6/13 – Inspiration breeds creation

Some times things happen for a reason, stars align and inspiration breeds great creation.  I know we didn’t get much of a “real” winter this year, but it felt super dreary to me.  So at the beginning of April, I think my inner happy person started screaming to get out and it manifested itself in a mini-obsession with all things minty, crisp and green.  So when my dear friend Laura with Buttercups Floral Design, asked me if I had any brilliant concepts for a stylized photo shoot, I got myself all in a tizzy!  We must use Mint!  We must be happy and bright and HAAAPPPYYY!!

Some inspiration:

Mint Green INvitation

As luck would have it, I also recently got myself all excited about an idea that I got from watching a commercial on HGTV.  They had a planter attached to a wall with several levels worth of slats to fill with flowers.  I had an idea!

Here are the images of our work in action:  teasers for the next post – showing the finished product.  ;  )

Style Shoot Wind Blown

The winds blows away our efforts.  Set the shoot up, it blows away.  Set it up, watch it blow!
