Our floral tablescape in Palm Springs!

Before I get started, let me just apologize for not having recapped my trip to Palm Springs for Meet Make Do before now. I realize that we’re about three weeks past due, but fret not! I’m rounding up all of the pretty photos and details for you to see in the next few days, but I wanted to show you the impromptu styled shoot that Jenn of Scout blog and I collaborated on the first day we were there.

Jenn is pretty much the gold medalist of all things styled so I can’t even begin to tell you how pumped I was to work with her! I’ve always dreamt of being a stylist for shoots and events, so getting to see someone in motion who has been so successful was so thrilling.

To start, we decided on a general color scheme and idea inspired by the bright colors and bits of glam you see in Palm Springs. She manned most of the tablescape while I created the DIY geometric fresh flower pendants (which I’ll show you how to make, next!). Luckily Flower Muse sent us the most amazing selection of florals (with the help of Brittni’s good taste!), and we basically had a heyday with them!

Also, can we talk about how fabulous this pineapple vase is?! It fit perfectly with our color scheme with just the right touch of color.

Jenn says she’s not a DIY’er, but she crafted these sequin fabric placemats and threaded linens a little tooo quickly for me to be convinced of that! On the other hand, I need to keep myself useful with what I bring to the table, so I’m going to humbly keep my DIY’er title for the sake of our partnership.

I’ll be sharing more Palm Springs details over the next few days, so keep your eyes peeled! And a big thanks to Bing for sponsoring Meet Make Do and to Kelly, Brittni, and Chelsea for hosting!

    How did you DIY the place mats? Was it as easy as buying fabric and cutting into circles?
