Spring Organics Gathering + How to Create the Concrete Pots!
Read a recent blog covering McBaile by B.Loved Luxe & Lovely
We’re so excited for the approaching Easter weekend and have such beautiful inspiration for a Spring Gathering with this shoot by Bowtie + Belle Photography! Stylist Lauradana of Wedding Creations created this tablescape with a rustic luxe, organic essence, and she’s also sharing how you can re-create the pretty place settings too!
“The inspiration for this shoot evolved from the beautiful new glass room at Kingscote Barn. A lovely light room filled with lots of natural materials such as Cotswold stone walls and a beautiful solid wood table.
I decided to extend the presence of natural elements onto this table with the use of; terracotta, stone, ceramics and concrete. To soften these materials, and with spring in the air, soft foliage and blossoms were used. Spring is a season of renewal and so the colours were kept to white’s and greens to enhance the natural beauty of all of the combined elements.
In a nod to greenery (pantone’s colour of the year) terracotta pots with herbs were interspersed with succulent filled concrete holders. The combination of hard concrete and terracotta with soft foliage and succulents worked really well.
To reflect the terracotta pots McBaile Catering created enchanting chocolate mousse place settings. Yes, these little terracotta pots were in fact delicious edible favours also! I love playing with textures and the use of both copper and delicate ribbons on these place settings helped to create a fresh modern look for the tablescape. They also created a delicate looking bundt cake with drizzled white chocolate, lemon zest and rosemary. A cake perfect for any Spring feast.
As the new room at Kingscote is so light and airy I wanted to ensure this was also carried through with the style of photography. Bowtie and Belle beautifully captured the essence of Spring and their delicate and detailed way of shooting was perfect for showcasing this tablescape.”
