HAPPY HOLIDAYS! This shoot took place on one of the hottest days of the year in August. However, it was all Christmas in the room as we cranked the a/c and played holiday music.
This video invitation, created for this collaborative shoot with Engaging Invites and MarieBelle, was festooned with fresh pine. Nothing says "holiday" quite like red boxes full of artisan chocolates made right here in New York City and a holiday video card with a craft cocktail demo video inside.
I love to challenge myself tocome up with tasteful versions of many times tacky "holidays". This table setting is an answer to the question, "How do the gays in East Hampton celebrate Pride?"
The dramatic, colorful round shapes in this setting were inspired by the Chihuly Exhibit hosted by the BBG, visited just the weekend before. The cover of this invite was created using fresh carnation petals and was stored in a refrigerator the night before the shoot.
"Rosé All Day" was the message in this mid-summer shoot and brand collaboration between Fruita Pop (frozen rosé ice pops) and Engaging Invites. This was a particularly challenging shoot. Never work with children, animals.....OR ICE.
The inspiration for this shoot was the remnant of fabric found on the street while Citibiking through the city, corner of 14th and 1st to be exact. The driftwood and wood bird were from my bookshelf, purchased from a thrift store years ago.
The invite was constructed from walnut veneer, palm leaf and laser cut copper mirror.
