Jewel Tone Celebration – Styled Photo Shoot {Guest Feature}

You know I love a good cocktail bar set up, and that’s exactly what caught my eye when I saw this styled shoot by Melissa Munding Photography. Done in rich jewel tones, this wedding inspiration is filled with whimsical touches but with an air of sophistication. Use these ideas for weddings, birthdays, engagement parties, or anniversaries.

As I mentioned, the bar display is eye catching as well as utilitarian. Mix your own champagne concoction with an array of flavors available in beautiful glass decanters. This has the feel of a gentleman’s library but the red desk and decorative details give it more of a playful touch.

Once you’ve bellied up to the bar, it’s time to move on to the dining table. The rich colors continue with a lovely table cloth and an abundance of flowers in the centerpiece. More whimsy is added with the small “bottles” that are actually candles!

More stylish ideas are seen in the cake & creme brulee display, a welcome area, and gorgeous stationery suite.

I just love the deep rich colors used in this design! Check out the vendors below for their contributions.
