Erin Kate Photography and floral designer Kim of Petal Pixie teamed up to create this beautiful seaside styled shoot. I’m loving the crisp white linens and deep blue hues against the sandy beach setting. Such a great look for a laid-back rehearsal dinner or a fun gathering with friends.

From Kim of Petal Pixie“: when designing this shoot I wanted to create something full of details that remind me of my trips to the coast in California and Oregon. I chose a color pallet reminiscent of the ocean consisting of blues, white, and gray. I started with white linens for something crisp and fresh looking. I paired it with watercolor napkins folded in a pocket style where you can insert your silverware or a menu card. From there I used a hollowed out log with succulents and air plants. The beauty of air plants is they do not have to be in soil to stay alive which makes them easy to design with while creating a lot of interest and impact. I finished off the table with seashells, rope covered candles, and sea glass. You can’t be on the beach without having S’mores, so I created individual S’more kits for the guests to use after the dinner. I wanted to create a shoot that could be used for a rehearsal dinner or a gathering of friends.
