Did you know that Yarn can be used as a verb? It means to tell a long and implausible story. While going through the pictures of today’s shoot, I racked my brain to think of what to title this post. Someone told me the best place to start with “stuff like that” is to look up the definition of the word, problem is the definition is the opposite of what this shoot represents.
The vendors for this shoot made an everyday material (yarn) into a modern photo shoot fit for classic bride on a budget, as well as Style Me Pretty:
For JS Design Custom, the idea was to use accessible, everyday, natural materials in ways that a DIY bride can appreciate, creating warm tones and a cozy feel. For the table numbers, Julie wrapped yarn around sewing pins. Yes, sewing pins.
The silverware holders are just simple mailing tubes wrapped in yarn and crochet ribbon. A little button anchors a tag that says “Dine with Me” in lettering that will modernize the vintage feel of the materials.
The place card holders are made of felt — just felt — die cut into a circle and wrapped with natural paper. They’re each printed with “Please Take Your Seat” and the individual guest names in the center. As a side note, you can buy wool felt at Fancy Tiger for .75 cents per 10″x10″. Both the silverware holder and guest cards are budget friendly for the designer on a dime.
Lastly, like Julie says on all of her emails, The Details Make All The Difference. She wrapped the hot cocoa cups with a doily; a simple, affordable way to give your beverages an upscale look without breaking the bank. The swizzle stick is wrapped in yarn and says “Sip.”
The majority of this intricate shoot was made from everyday materials that were cut up and meticulously tied back together. Even the candles on the tables were placed inside sweater sleeves giving that perfect late fall/early winter atmosphere that’s perfect for cuddling up with your honey and a cup of cocoa.
