I am LOVING this “modern organic” Style Dictionary Shoot from Studio EMP Inc, Lindye Galloway Events, Art With Nature Floral Design, and Classic Party Rentals! It was all produced by Stacey of Hitching Post PR, and she wrote a fabulous story to go along with the awesome images…
We wanted to do a shoot that mixed two seemingly opposing elements…modern and organic. Modern expresses clean lines with a simple, minimal approach, while organic is typically characterized as something without structure or organization. We wanted to bring the two worlds together in a complimentary tablescape.
We started with rentals that reflected a modern tone – crisp white chiavari chairs; squared china, flatware, and stemware; and a pop of color in the napkins. Underneath the place settings sat custom placemats. This is where modern began to meld with organic – three pieces of dark wood bound together in a horizontal fashion created our placemats.
The organic side was expressed beautifully through a continuous floral garland down the center of the table. The florals used were both soft to reflect the organic nature of the tablescape, mixed with the hard lines of the succulents to tie in the more modern elements. The floral used were ‘Sahara’ and ‘Vendela’ Roses, ‘White Mojolica’ and ‘Chablis’ Spray Roses, salmon Ranunculus and peach Dahlias. For interesting texture we used Jasmine Vine, Madien Hair Fern and Berzelia Berries. And, for the succulents we used assorted Echeverias and Aeoniums.
Above the table, hung a custom chandelier. Reflecting the table, the chandelier utilized the same foundation as the placemats. Hanging from the wood were glass orbs strung at different heights and filled with a variety of organic elements. This is where the organic feel took over.
You know I LOVE that chandelier over the table!!!! WOW, so awesome- and so gorgeous! I love the combination of the organic elements with a modern style. This might be my new favorite shoot (although every week each shoot is my new favorite, right?)! A HUGE thank you to all of the amazing vendors who put this Style Dictionary shoot together!
