If you’re planning a little V-day party and want to set up a sweet treats table, don’t be intimidated! For this shoot, I wanted to especially show how store-bought treats can work too. No need to whip out that Kitchenaid mixer and flour, butter, sugar. For the Kandy Kones, I used Little Debbie’s mini cakes, how cute are they? And tastier than I thought! Rock candy, chewy ribbon candy, almond coconut nougats are some of the other little treats included. Add some bubbly and berries and you’re all set for that sappy movie ;) Oh and those pretty retro printables are by Chocolate Rabbit Whimsical Graphics. It was so great of Betsy to provide her beautiful designs for this shoot.
Remember those funny behind-the-scenes funny moments I mentioned earlier? So here’s what happened… I like to do shoots in natural light. It’s the best kind of lighting for pretty much anything. The two mornings that I had set aside for this little project, it decided to rain. And I’m talking POURING 24/7 for 4 days straight. Awesome, there goes my lighting and romantic outdoor setup. Plan B? Pick the sunniest spot in my house and set up there instead, which is by the window in my daughter’s room. Yup, her bed was my ‘dessert table’ for the morning. Which meant I had to make a mad dash to clean up before she came home from school and discovered her ‘candy all over the bed’ dream come true. Ha!
Hope you enjoyed my musings as much as all the pictures. Happy date-night lovelies :) And don’t forget to check out all the other shoots – links here below!
