Photo Shoot : romantic Valentine's Day picnic by Golden Gate Bridge

I am excited to continue the Wedding Vendor Challenge Photo Shoot today with a beautiful romantic picnic with the Golden Gate Bridge as a backdrop. This shoot took place at the Crissy Field Picnic Area in San Francisco. As I mentioned in yesterday's challenge post, I 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. I supplied a color palette for all vendors to work with and for this shoot it was red, honeysuckle pink {the Pantone color of the year} and grey. I also asked each team to provide at least one DIY design.

Team Two features the talent of Jacin of Lovely Little Details who not only co-planned the shoot, but she provided the on-site styling and design as well as the cupcakes, cookies, doily wrapped sandwiches and all props. And, even more talent included Tara of Cut the Cake Designs who created all the paper goods, Miriam of Glam Candies who also co-planned and provided concept collaboration and of course, Gladys of Gladys Jem Photography for providing the gorgeous photography.

Jacin was so clever to use a quilt as a tablecloth - it softens the setting and makes the romantic picnic more cozy and inviting.

This is just the cutest packaging - a wrapped PB&J sandwich in wax paper with a paper wrapper and tied with twine. When upwrapped, you end up with the sandwich wrapped in a large doily and sealed with a heart sticker. Super sweet!

And, aren't the following paper placemats the sweetest? One reads "You and Me Forever" and the other reads "Will You Marry Me?" Simply set the table and hide the wording with the plate and then after dinner, when the plate is lifted, the question is revealed.

How about all those food tags? You're in for another treat today as Tara has created them as a download for you. Simply print out Tara's food tag pdf after downloading via this link from Scribd, trim and attach to your edibles and you're all set. {the download link is directly underneath the item title in the right column}

A huge thank you to Team 2 for continuing the week with amazing inspiration and another lovely tablescape and wonderful paper goods. Be sure to stay tuned all week as I have lots more wonderful designs coming your way.
