A European-Style Courtyard Celebration

The gorgeous styled shoot I’m sharing today has so many interesting and eclectic details, it feels very European to me.  There is an old-world feel that you would find in France or Italy, but the additional of succulents takes you to Spain!  This lovely inspiration was shot by Daniel Lateulade and Ashley of 1313 photography, and styled by Daniel’s incredibly talented wife.  Just take a look…
The adorable little flowers you see on the table are from Pixel and Hank and add some nice pops of blue to coordinate with all the other blue accents.  The side table with escort cards, and note area is one of my favorite features of this design.  The use of the bottles in the wine rack, and the drawers filled with wine corks, and greenery are genius!  And, the easy-to-do ribbon frame is the perfect backdrop for a small-scale setting like this.
Classic homemade desserts are served including cake, cupcakes, rice krispies treats, madelines, and chocolate dipped strawberries, proving once again you don’t have to spend a fortune to serve pretty and tasty sweets.  
This amazing design would be so nice for a small backyard wedding or bridal shower.  Cheers!
