The table was inspired by a combination of spring bud pink and golden pollen yellow. I wanted a vibe to channel the soft light of early spring, with accents of jewel-hued honey yellow.

I pulled in copper and gold hardware in the form of place DIY placecard holders and simple o-ring napkin holders (they were less than $1 a piece!)

Copper pipe fittings are the perfect place card holders! The secret is a simple slot etched into the bottom of the paper card so it fits snugly on the copper piece. The result? A super-fast place card holder without the burden of shaping metal.

A simple budded branch complements the place setting. I love the strong line of a single budded branch and the juxtaposition of the bark brown against the pastel palette.

Our table needed a small bump from a soft box (can’t help the rain on a springy shoot that’s supposed to feel sunny!)

Before shooting, I line up all of the pieces on the table surface to get a feel for how they’ll come together.
