Winter Garden Party! Back in November, I was scrolling on Instagram and got the random idea to set up a styled shoot, but Holiday themed. I knew I didn't want it to be the generic colorful Christmas decorations. Don't get me wrong I love Christmas decorations and all of the colors, but I wanted this to be classy.
Classy & Thomasville detail themed. When I think of Thomasville, I think fancy with a mix of southern class and upland hunting. From there, I started making my Pinterest board come to life! I partnered with several businesses, all the way from Tallahassee, Fl to Valdosta, Ga to Texas! I hosted the styled shoot at one of my favorite little venues, The Courtyard by Adele Creative. It is the cutest little courtyard setting, with brick and greenery.
I worked with several wonderful vendors!
The first vendor was a local Tallahassee business called Eat Like You Give A Fork. She made all of the appetizer-type food. It was all so yummy and even Vegan!
Next another Tallahassee favorite. Boards by Alexis. Alexis made the most beautiful and yummy charcuterie board for our event!
I had a few ideas for what I was thinking for the cookies, but nothing really specific. I just wanted them to be simple, but still really simple. Cookie Mommas Tally made the cutest simple-style Christmas tree cookies and was so delicious. I have used them for several events and not only are they the sweetest owners, but they make the yummiest cookies!
The menus!! Workes of Harte By Allison. She is the sweetest and seriously SO talented. She does anything from painting champagne bottles to custom work, to live wedding paintings and she makes it look so easy it's unbelievable! For this shoot she made Menu's! I wanted to highlight the upland hunting that Thomasville is known for and we thought integrating that into the menu would be a great way! Allison drew a quail to add to the top of the menu and it turned out so cute.
Allison also made a "Happy Holidays" Sign for us to put on the food table!
I used Boutique Party Rentals for the gorgeous Balloon Garland and table cloths! For the Balloon Garland, we went with all white with a hint of a dark red color and some greenery!
This Beautiful Handmade Wreath made by Shop the Green Box Co! Fresh and sooo pretty. I LOVE magnolia flowers so you know I was loving this wreath and fit in well with our theme!
I used Terri Smith Details for the green and clear glasses and the charger plates! Perfect glasses and so classy!
I have used and worked with Cay Co Events before and 1 Katsi is so sweet and 2 she is always so easy to work with! She supplied the beautiful candle stick holders! The perfect touch to the table!
Lastly, I had the sweetest Mother-Daughter Duo Online boutique out of Valdosta, Ga style all of the girls! They made it so fun! They setup right away and turned the whole kitchen into a dressing room. It looked like a girls dream, cute clothes and accessories everywhere!!
And I cannot forget our models! These girls were all so sweet and all of them instantly clicked and got along so well! They were gorgeous and all natural models and so fun to work with!!
Here are some more photos of this fun event. The whole time planning this shoot and during we all tried to come up with a name for this styled shoot and decided to call it a "Winter Garden Party" and I think it is perfect!
