Well if there is no other way to get your kid to eat veggies, you can always just draw some on top of macarons, at least that’s my motto when it comes to Jared, anyways. I kid, I kid, he’s actually good at eating vegetables, but that’s about the closest thing I have to caring for something other than cats. Really where this long story is going, is to tell you that I’ve whipped up another #glossaryofmacs with these DIY veggie kabob macarons!

I feel the need to really spell this one out for you, because my tomatoes only sort of look like tomato slices if you squint. I had a tough time getting these right, and I thought for sure tomato slices would be easy peasy! At least the hot pink turnip slices, onions, and cucumbers can redeem me a little…

There are two things we do a lot of around the studio: photo shoots and less than organized chaos when it comes to prepping for them. Jared and I have learned to work together pretty well (he tells me I’m annoying him, I tell him he’s annoying me and that I want a flat white with almond milk… etc. etc.), but I have started to be more diligent about putting together cohesive ideas and inspiration boards for shoots and daily to-do lists since bringing on an intern and working with collaborators. Though I’m a digital girl as much as the next, something about secret Pinterest boards just doesn’t always cut it for me, so we made these DIY geometric inspiration boards to bring it back to (hands-on) reality!

The catch here is that I’ve made it a HUGE point to not have any decor items in the studio be too permanent so that we can move things around for shoots. We use the white walls as backdrops, move furniture around to accommodate events and workshops, and even just to be able to spread out supplies for big DIY projects, so the key with our inspiration boards is that it’s easily removable to swap things out with a damage free surface so that we can keep the space a clean slate for whatever we’re working on…

When BHLDN asks you to team up with them to style a tea party themed soiree, you naturally do two things: one being to run a few laps around your studio out of sheer excitement, and the second being to go buck wild and transform your whole studio into a Grand Budapest Hotel inspired wonderland from top to bottom.

Lucky for you I don’t skimp on the details when it comes to get togethers, and thus a tea party with BHLDN is anything but an exception, so I’m going to share alll of the details, how-to’s, and even a few freebies for you to create your own!…
