Sometimes things are worth a long wait.  With the first signs of spring + peonies, I styled this photo shoot and many months later, I am thrilled to see it on Style Me Pretty.  Photos are by the ever talented, Kate Ignatowski + the full team is listed below the post.  Enjoy!

Romantic Boudoir on Burnett’s Boards

Styled by Mandy Forlenza Sticos  Photography by Kate Ignatowski

Boudoir:  A woman’s bedroom or private room.  That’s the official definition of boudoir and this shoot with Kate Ignatowski + Evelyn Bedoya is the sweetest version of boudoir photography.  This romantic vintage inspired photo shoot was published on Burnett’s Boards today.  Here are some of my favorites from the shoot; it was such a fun one to style!

Table Top Tuesday | 1

Style Me Pretty Table Top by Jose Villa

Today I am starting a weekly series featuring some of my favorite table top designs for events!  I hope to provide some tips and inspiration for your next gathering. This inspiration shoot is one of my favorite ever and with an amazing list of talent (further below) it’s obvious why this is so spectacular.

What makes this work?  The mismatched patterned flatware adds just enough elegance and interest against the rustic wood table.  The same applies to the assorted patterned pressed glassed goblets.  Three goblets in classic clear glass is rich looking and the difference in size and pattern brings this design a step above.

 What details make a difference?  The all white + greens arrangement helps punch up the monochromatic place setting and the hand written calligraphy escort card and menu provide guests with a sense of honor as if one would ask; was that written for little old me?
