Photo Shoot : a cute and whimsical Valentine's Day sweetheart table

Continuing today with another wonderful Wedding Vendor Challenge Photo Shoot is a whimsical sweetheart table photographed in Banff, Canada. Angie of Get Married in Banff says she chose the base of the sweetheart table as a charcoal taffeta table cloth which looked stunning with the pinks, reds and Pantone Color of the Year Honeysuckle Pink. For this week long featured challenge, I've asked vendors across the US and Canada to team up and create an intimate Valentine's Day dinner tablescape for two with a dessert display. And, like the past three photo shoots this week, there is also a DIY goodie provided.

Team Four features the talent of Angie and Reg of Get Married in Banff, Carey of Lasso'd Moon, Shannon of Twirlie Whirlies, Corrine of Buds and Blooms, and stunning photography from Jessika of December Photography. Angie explains the idea behind the shoot . . . "We wanted to include something fun into the table because the pinwheels were so cute and whimsical so the donuts were added as well as the almonds. Every couple likes to snack on sweet treats and we thought the donuts would be something really unique."

Loving Carey's invitation design that reads "You're invited to an intimate dinner for two on this our first Valentine's Day".

The Juniper Hotel in Banff was chosen as the location for the shoot because of the slate wall in their Bistro. And, don't you just love the pinwheel installation on the grey wall?

The flowers are in tin cans covered in lovely patterned paper that matches the pinwheels. Love this idea.

And, I have more printable goodies for you today. Carey has created a blank Love menu and a Love Menu with the courses pre-filled in. If you open this file in an editing program you can swap out the food choices for your own creations. Simply print out either the blank menu or the pre-filled out menu from Scribd, trim and you're good to go. {the download link is directly underneath the item title in the right column}

A huge thank you to Team 4 for continuing the week with yet another beautiful inspiration shoot, this time from chilly Canada. What a gorgeous tablescape and delicious dessert display with beautiful paper goods. Continue to stay tuned as we'll be finishing up the week with one more Valentine Inspired photo shoot.
