Pumpkins!

If you've known me for five minutes, you know that about 88% of all photos I take are blurry.  It drives me crazy, but it's been that way forever - remember the days of film?  I'd develop a roll and end up with 7 totally dark photos, 1 moderately clear photo and the rest so blurry it was hard to make out any faces.  BUT I've been working on it, practicing when I have time (ha!) and deleting a lot of photos..  

I've needed to take a photo of the Daisy Sweetheart Table, so I thought it would be fun to use it as a chance to practice my (improving) photography skills.   By the way - meet Daisy!

Daisy is the whitewashed version of everyone's favorite Heather Sweetheart Table.  They are the exact same size, but one is painted white and one is stained brown.  They have been rented together several times - sometimes a bride will use one as a cake table and one as a gift table, or one as a sweetheart table and one as a cake table.  Actually, now that I'm thinking about it, Daisy has been used as a cake table quite a bit! 

 

Here in Morton the 50th Annual Pumpkin Festival is taking place - so I thought it would be fun to create a sweetheart table with a Morton theme!   I've been working with food-as-decor photos all week for another project, so now I'm adding pumpkins to my growing list.   Anyway, I am imagining this as a beautifully soft and light fall wedding - a lot of whites and browns with a few soft colors inspired by nature (and the pumpkin fields!).  Add mismatched chairs, antlers, and a textural table runner and it's pretty much perfection!

I still need a lot more practice, but it was a fun way to spend an evening!   Special shout out to Le Fleur for the sprigs of eucalyptus.
