Summer Inspired Editorial Photo Shoot
Ah, sweet summer. The season that welcomes in warmer weather, an air of casualness and the perfect excuse to host a party just because… summer! At Skybox Events, we embrace the upcoming season in all of its blazing glory (literally and figuratively). We aimed to create a party to reflect our love for all things fresh and vibrant-- bright and juicy citrus fruits really led the inspiration for this shoot and influenced most of our design details. Orange you excited to feast your eyes on this color combination?! We were especially obsessed with blood oranges that we incorporated wherever we could in the shoot. Best of all? This summer gathering is kid-friendly! Entertain your adult guests with refreshingly creative drinks like the cool, blood orange and rosemary cocktail, and keep the kids happy with homemade popsicles (recipes below). But hey, we won’t judge if one of those popsicles “happens” to make its way into your cocktail either.
Bonjour Fête’s bright and airy space was the perfect backdrop for our summer soiree shoot. The dreamy white marble countertops and the colorful confetti wall… doesn’t get better than that!
Wreaths and floral arrangements provided by Sibyl Sophia Floral Designs added the perfect touch of fun and whimsy. We’re loving the fresh pops of color it adds to the bar cart!
Hand drawn place cards paired with a kumquat bunch keep things casual and organic. The lovely painted cocktail menu in watercolor was a prefect summer touch by Design Voyage.
Homemade Popsicles: Beat the heat with some cool, sweet treats! Did we mention these are actually healthy?! These delicious fruit popsicles are made from real fruit puree and sweetened with a touch of agave nectar. A breeze to make and prep before the party. See below for recipe.
• 1 box ripe strawberries (1 pint boxes - 10-12 medium sized strawberries)
• 1 box raspberries (half pint - 15-20 raspberries)
• 1 tsp lemon juice
• 1 tbsp agave nectar or honey (use agave nectar to keep it vegan)
1. Puree strawberries and raspberries until everything is completely blended.
2. Mix add lemon juice and agave/honey and divide among popsicle moulds. Add popsicle sticks and freeze.
3. To remove, run warm water on the outside of the moulds =)
