I started this blog a decade ago when I was a wedding designer as a way to share trends with brides. Eventually, the blog became my sole focus and I began to produce orginial content in 2009. Now, I work with a variety of lifestyle brands as a prop stylist and set dresser. Below is my recent prop styling work and over 1200+ posts of back content.
