Table Top Tuesday | 4

Rylee Hitchner Photography  Flowers + Styling by Mandy Forlenza Sticos

For installment four of Table Top Tuesday, I am sharing my own little creation photographed by the uber talented Rylee Hitchner at the recent Joy Thigpen Workshop.  I created this centerpiece the day before the photographs were taken and it was looking a little limp, so we decided to pair it with my favorite accessories – dishes, glassware, flatware and a cloth napkin!  I love the way it turned out in the photographs, so soft and dreamy.  Thanks Rylee!

What makes this work?  For me, it’s the soft tones captured on Rylee’s film photography (I heart film) and the abundance of textured pieces I chose for the centerpiece.

What details make a difference?  Those tony blue berries on a slate grey napkin pull it together!  Thanks to Joy for loaning a vintage handkerchief from your kit to make it happen at 7:00am before we all departed for home!

My personal photographs from Joy’s workshop can be found here, in case you missed it.
