Photo Shoot : a romantic picnic in the park for St. Patrick's Day

It's time for this months Wedding Vendor Challenge - starting today thru Thursday I'll be featuring the modern spring themed photo shoots from the Wedding Vendor Challenge for March. I asked vendors across the US and Canada to team up and create an intimate tablescape for two with a dessert display. I supplied a color palette for all vendors to work with and for this shoot it was green with accent colors of brown, cream and pale yellow. It could be St. Patrick's Day related, although this wasn't a requirement, so you'll be seeing a bit of both this week. I also asked each team to provide at least one DIY design. So, here we go - the first Wedding Vendor Challenge for March from Green Orchid Events in Las Vegas . . . a romantic picnic in the park . . .

Photography was provided by Adam Trujillo Photography with all paper goods being designed by Ashley of Lemon and Lavender and the desserts were from Peridot Sweets.

Juliet wanted to design a romantic picnic set up at a park. All desserts had hints of traditional Irish flavors such as the Stout Chocolate Cake {with Irish Whiskey and Cream Cheese Frosting}, Chocolate Covered Sandwich Cookies {with Irish Cream Filling} and Irish cream chocolate ganache shots.

Don't you just love the desserts suspended in the glass holders from the trees?
