Flat lay prop styling is one of my favorite genres of styling. So when my friend Kate asked me to style entertaining and lifestyle themed product shots for her fine tabletop rental company, The Ark, I was extra pumped.

Food props were my were my main focus for this shoot. When I pull food props I look for rich color, interesting texture, and scale. In general, smaller more delicate items are easier to work that bigger items. When you’re trying to accent a product, it’s really important that the prop not draw attention away from the product. Some of my favorite props for this shoot were gorgeous purple/black beans, mini eggplants, and kale, all from my beloved Santa Barbara Farmer’s Market.

For floral accents, Kate wanted minimal, more everyday home, flowers. I pulled unique shapes like fern curls for her collection of moody black pieces and dainty scabiosa for her stunning marble plates. For backdrops, we used a mix of seamless, ceramic tiles, and these really cool suede boards I found at an art store. Lane Dittoe was on hand as our awesome product photographer and it was so much fun to work with him once again. And be sure to check out the rest of The Ark’s stunning inventory right here.

Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from
now on each time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the same comment.
Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service?
Many thanks!

I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this

Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Spending some
time and actual effort to generate a top notch article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

Link exchange is nothing else except it is only placing the other person’s webpage link on your page
at proper place and other person will also do similar in support of
you.

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with
internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.
Thanks

At this time it seems like Drupal is the top blogging platform available right now.
(from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
