The Mrs. Box no. 5

Back in February I styled The Mrs. Box shoot in Solvang along with some other lovely creatives. This was such a fun project as it allowed me to explore a different realm of floral styling. Who knew that styling flowers with tiny ring boxes could be so much fun?

Here are some of my favorites:

The urns, in particular, were fun for me as I tried to make them as 3D as I could on a flat surface, and I really treated them and placed the flowers as though I was creating a real life arrangement in water with lots of different textures and complementing hues.

Can we talk about this girl's hair? I mean, does it get any better than tulip petals for your hair?! :)

I had saved a number of potted poinsettia from the holidays, and they still looked really beautiful in February. Plus, I'm quite obsessed with their peachy colors, so I thought it would be perfect to incorporate them in one of my designs. They really look like watercolor.

Jose told me this one looked like a painting! I would have to give most of the credit to those beautiful tulips and their incredible colors.

It was super fun to make this very tiny bouquet (less than 2 inches all around). When I am choosing the florals for projects like these, I make sure to procure as many different flowers in different sizes, shades, and textures as possible...because to me, that is what makes these images so interesting. Of course, it goes without saying that Jose Villa's photography is impeccable!
