[ colorful summer bash ]

with june comes summer. so i couldn't think of a better time to share the summer shoot we put together for the launch of my updated etsy shop!
desi and tammy from dez & tam photography captured the faux pool party perfectly.

how do you celebrate in the summer? the pool, beautiful cakes and candy, fur, and champagne, right? ;)
that's how we did anyways. 2 girls, just eating cupcakes, drinking pink champagne and having a little girl talk, the usual..

cake stands, ribbon garland and calligraphy signs will all be available for sale in the shop soon!

no party is complete without cocktails. so a fabulous little bar was complete with a cocktail calligraphy sign, ombre drink stirrers, hand painted wood pennant signs and the perfect way to throw together an impromptu bash.. the rubber stamp invite.

candy buffets. let's switch it up and do something original shall we? this buffet was set up on a lawn chair surrounded with comfy pillows for guests to sit around, relax and chat while they file up their treat bags.

fabric signs, new favor bags, fabric ombre favor bags and garland all available soon!

and then there was candy rain. obviously.

this shoot was a blast (well when there's cake, candy, pink, and a little whiskey, what isn't). but i couldn't have done it without lots of generous help and talented friends!

photography - dez & tam photography
