Valentine Inspiration {Hearts of Gold}

a

A small token of love this Valentine’s Day. This vignette was simply to share the short and beautiful life of these divine, almost other worldly garden roses we had to work with as well as some very pretty finds from an antique store that belong to the photographer Annabella. The rest is what others see in it, whether that is just something pretty to scroll through or  little gems that stand out as inspiration, or really anything. We give our own meaning to objects when we see them as symbols; in this case symbols of affection, sweetness, romance, and softness. This doesn’t mean that one must own or recieve all of the gilded hearts and fluffy roses in the world to have a proper Valentine’s experience, but instead that whatever we do for others, (any tokens, actions, or words that have meaning) will be the best received when given with love.

Magnolia Rouge  kindly featured this today along with a bonus tutorial to learn more about how to create the candles or the sugared garden rose petals in the photographs.

Earthly Heirlooms {Magnolia Rouge Issue 3}

We absolutely love getting creative when it comes to the themes of Magnolia Rouge Magazine. Working with Annabella Charles Photography and Everbloom Designs we designed an entire vignette around the heirlooms that are gifts from the Earth to be transformed into treasures for generations to enjoy. Whether made of wood, clay, cotton, charcoal, or seeds that grow flowers and food year after year, these blessings are not too small to be forgotten. We are so proud to be a part of the talent in this magazine spans the globe!

{ I would like to also mention that the charcoal sketch was done by the talented Annaliese Davidson, a budding artist.}

Beauty in Botany {Magnolia Rouge Feature}

            Magnolia Rouge published its second edition under the new name and the magazine is a treasure trove of real weddings, style, and more! Kate (the director) was able to use two seperate photo shoots from our group in the magazine and we thought we would share the lovely botanical beauty here on the blog. It’s an ode to the lithograph and fern lovers alike and includes a bunch of fresh Helleborus mixed with lively little puffs of Acacia and four different types of ferns to name just a few floral ingredients. With stylist Kristin Wolter from Everbloom Designs and Annabella of Annabella Charles Photography, we mapped out the details of a decorated repast of salads, spritzers, and sweets that include edible pansies.
