I’m so excited for the the Olympics to begin Friday.  From the opening ceremonies to the competitions and back stories of the athletes…I love it all.  Here is some inspiration for an Olympic sweets table inspired by the beautiful colors of the Olympic rings.
I spray painted these Big Ben sculptures in the 5 ring colors. 
A very simple display with only M&Ms, bubble gum and sixlets in matching colors

I added country flags as a banner around the tables.  Large glass cylinders filled with decoupaged balls with country flags and a battery operated torch sitting atop the cylinders.

I also dipped pretzel “O’s” in colored dipping chocolate and “glued” them in the pattern of the 5 rings.  I found the pretzel “O’s” at Meijer and I believe Kroger has them as well.

Dairy Farm Photo Shoot

Here are some amazing photos from the Farm Photo shoot we were asked to style.  The photos were taken on a beautiful dairy farm called Kelsay Farms.  This shoot was styled for a group called
Pursuit 31. Pursuit 31 focuses on helping women build successful businesses and thriving families. There were about 15 different photographers taking pics. 
 Here is a sampling of some of the photographers work.
The following three photos were taken by the talented Rachel Richard of Rachel Richard Photography  Rachel was also responsible for this entire shoot.  She worked so hard getting the venue, models, clothes, and all the vendors needed to make this shoot possible.  I can’t believe she even had time to get some great photos too!!

 I decided to a do a milk and cookies display…we were on a dairy farm after all 🙂

 Here is one of our furry models..Oliver…he was the best dog and it was a HOT day!! 

 The next three beautiful photos were taken by Tabitha Parker of Fresh Canvas.

 We created a girly teepee tent for these beautiful girls to enjoy lemonade and cupcakes while they were being photographed.  All of the models makeup and hair were styled by Courtney Himes and Emily Dykes of Primp Hair and Makeup Artistry.

 The last two amazing photos were taken by Cindy Combs of Clearly Focused Photography
