I had the opportunity to spend my Saturday with a couple of creative girl bosses and it was awesome! My friend, Rebekka, owns an online shop called Alboe (a little bit of everything) and it is chock-full of beautiful things for you and your home. Her newest Alboe project is called Eat With Alboe and it consists of themed boxes (each one named after one of her nieces and nephews) which you can purchase for all of your host(ess)ing needs! She has hand-picked the perfect fabrics for table runners and napkins which accompany a variety of items for your polished party table. We were joined by calligrapher and owner of Wood and Ink, Kristen, for a styled shoot in the woods!!!
The whole process was such a dream! The three of us were tucked away in the woods behind Rebekka’s in-law’s house. We had a beach blanket overflowing with props, a farm house table, and soooooo many flowers. Our PNW weather was fairytale perfection: overcast and brisk, but DRY! We pulled out the linens for each Eat With Alboe box and styled the table to match, then snapped tons of pictures for the online store. This experience was second only to playing dress up as far as glam and girly goes.
These girls were so much fun to hang with all day, but more than that they were such an inspiration! It was amazing to works with them, sharing ideas and expressing our creativity for six straight hours. As women who have defined their goals and executed their vision through fully functioning businesses, these two are examples of where I want to go in life. Graceful, elegant, tasteful, and totally fun, they never took themselves too seriously but still maintained the integrity of the project. #goals
A few last minute, random thoughts–
Staring at dessert food all day was definitely painful. I <3 sugar.
Usually I drop the temp of my pics because they feel crisper when they’re a little cooler, but I bumped the warmth on these guys because they are SO dreamy. The color! The texture!
I took all of these pictures with my Galaxy s6 Edge… Thank you thank you thank you to John for doing all the research and picking this one when I said, “I need a new phone. It has to have a good camera, and I have to be able to use it.” I only have nice things because of him.
