A Neon Bright Valentines Tablescape

With just a day to go before Valentines Day is upon us, I thought I'd stop by to share a few images from a recent shoot I styled and photographed in collaboration with Sonia van der Zwaan-Barrigas of Gosto Design for Houzz. In one of my more recent blog posts, you will see that I was inspired by neon pink this month, so couldn't let this romantic holiday pass without offloading some of that inspiration.

For this shoot, we were going for a fun and fresh take on a Valentines tablescape for two, using neon pink to add a vibrant jolt of colour to the scene. By decorating vases with ribbons and washi tape, we added pastel pink tones and pops of red to the romantic mix. An utterly feminine collection of single-stemmed blooms were given a Sania Pell inspired treatment of neon pink acrylic paint to their delicate edges. A lacy tablecloth and dramatic candelabra added just the right amount of contrast. Hope you like what we threw together!














Wishing you all a wonderfully romantic Valentines Day. If you'd like to read all about his shoot and find out how some of the elements were put together, click {HERE}.

See you soon!
