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.

It was such an honor to prop style for Men’s Wearhouse latest wedding campaign. For the art direction, I was asked to pull chic wedding props to go with our location the Paramount Theater in Oakland. For instance, for the cake cutting scene I used a bar cart from Seventh Heaven Vintage Rentals and paired it with a real cake by The Whole Cake (who was super awesome and made me this cake with less than a weeks notice and during the height of wedding season). Other scenes included a “guys getting ready” and a first dance scene featuring oversized marquee letters from Bright Rentals. The reception portion of the shoot was shot at Bear Flag Farms and featured a nuetral white and blush palette. And commercial photographer, James Dimmock, captured the photos.

I love flowers, so a flower-filled, botanical brunch was right up my alley. The amazing design center at Rolling Greens served as the location and featured this delightful, conservatory-type nook. Here, I used a 19th century table and paired it with garden benches and wicker chairs. I filled the space with a variety of plants, including jasmine, ivy topiaries, kumquat trees, and various ferns.

For food, the Kitchen made such floral delights such as strawberry and balsamic shooters with nasturtium, edible flower spring rolls, and an orange blossom cake. Of course, what’s a party without an over the top bar? From Found I styled this huge dresser and tucked in plants throughout the drawers including the most perfect violet plants. And the Kitchen made a variety of floral simple syrups, and even, floral ice cubes to pair with a classic gin fizz. You can see more of this spread in Flutter Magazine issue 16, which is on newsstands from 3/19.
