DIY: A Hot Pink Gal-entine’s Day Arrangement

Kelly

I asked Camille of Camilla Floral Design to create a chic arrangements that anyone could re-create for their Gal-entine’s festivities for Flutter’s blog. You can see the full post right here. From Camille:

“I wanted a bold, bright color palette that felt fun and appropriate for a bunch of girls hanging out. I envisioned a group of creative women, all in fields of design, having dinner before going out dancing. The paint swatch wall added a bold swath of color that was easy to DIY, and the geometry of the squares and rectangles reflected other geometric shapes I used throughout: a gold and copper hex pattern I painted on the wood vases, the square ceramic dishes with floating blooms, the votive holders, even a gold hex print on the tumblers. I painted the bottom half of the white ceramic bud vases copper to match the copper print on the wood vases. It’s so easy to customize inexpensive vases like these. Kelly had the idea to use extra paint swatches as a runner under the flowers. The finished table feels modern and fun, and the scale of the floral design is something anyone can achieve with flowers from the farmer’s market.”

Here’s how to create your own arrangement:

1. Allow fresh flowers at least two days to open up fully, especially the amaryllis.

2. I spray painted some of the camellia leaves copper and let them dry.

3. I begin with the larger, heavier flowers. In this case, a couple stems of amaryllis. I like to let their heavy heads rest just over the rim of the vase. I did the same with a few of the peonies; these big flowers will provide a backdrop for the more delicate sweet peas and ranunculus to float over.

4. Then, I add some of the camellia leaves for longer, leggy lines and to create a framework for the other flowers.

5. I added garden roses next, using clusters of two or three, followed by the rest of the peonies.

6. The ranunculus and sweet peas are last, adding some ‘bounce’ and looseness. If you try to implement the ranunculus too early, they get smooshed and lost among the bigger flowers. Their shape is just too epic for that!

7. Last, I adjust some of the camellia leaves for contrast among all the shades of pink.

Gal-entine Day Ideas with Flutter Magazine

Kelly
February 09

I’m not super to into V-day, but I am down for any excuse to drink champagne and sit at a pretty table. Camille from Camellia Floral Design wanted to create a modern hot pink table mixed with gold and brass accents for a faux Gal-entine’s day brunch for Flutter’s blog.

I pulled organic white ceramic plates from Porch, along with wood, gold, and brass elements to go with the floral containers. While at Porch we found the perfect salt and pepper holder for the table and hexagon mercury glass candle holders that echoed the hex pattern Camille painted on the containers. Camille adhered paint chips to wall behind the table to create a little backdrop and I used the left over paint chips on the table as an runner. Pink juice plus champagne with pomegranate seeds added even more color in the most insane gold dipped glasses. At each setting I floated a gold leaf tray with one sweet pea for a further pop of color.

You can pop over to Flutter for their feature on this table right here and tomorrow, I’ll show you how Camille put together this floral arrangement so you can create it for your best gal-pal Valentine’s day brunch!

Editorial: A Game of Cards at El Capitan Canyon with Jose Villa for Flutter Mag

Happy 2015 everyone! I thought I’d start the year off with one scene from an editorial I shot with Jose Villa for at Flutter Mag. As part of our Glamping story, published in the spring issue, I art directed this fun scene of the models playing a game of cards. We picked a spot just across from the cabins at El Capitan Canyon and I styled the scene with a cute deck of cards and a carafe of Foley rose wine with strawberries and raspberries for color. I pulled wardrobe from Bonita and Dressed/Ready and was going for a casual, elegant camping vibe. There’s tons more pretty from this shoot so stay tuned!
