Preppy Meets Pretty

You might remember the enormously talented Sara Gray from her awesome Inspired Creations Contest winning concept, Dandelion Wine.  I’m excited to welcome her back to EAD today with another beautiful styled shoot, one that’s romantic and preppy all at the same time.


Soft pinks and purples mix with a deep navy blue and preppy green for a classic and timeless color palette.  A beautiful handmade wooden boat filled with fluffy blooms anchors the table, and woven straw placemats add to the natural look and feel.




The gorgeous, structured cake is styled with fondant ribbons, reminiscent of a fence, and its modern feel is the perfect complement to the romantic flowers.
