As many of you know, we have been busy, busy, busy: decking the halls with boughs of holly. Yes-siree, you heard me right: boughs of holly in January. The Nectar crew was delighted down to its tippy toes to be invited to take part in another photoshoot for Southern Living. We are set to be a part of their holiday content, and do do that for 2012 we had to do the shoot this month. After being asked to be a part of the holiday spread, we immediately began brainstorming both the look and the location. We were very honored to have been able to decorate such a gorgeous home…and our hostess even made us hot tea on a nippy day during the shoot!
There’s a lot of planning, skteching, measuring, ordering of props, emailing back and forth of designs…by the time we hit the location with a photographer we knew exactly what to do. The Nectar team hit the ground running, from flash planting paperwhites to whisking away every stray leaf, branch, and grass clipping. The Southern Living folks were just a dream to work with: fun, friendly, and professional.
By the end of the week we had hung wreaths, decorated doors, planted a goodly number of plants, and pretty well worn ourselves out in the name of Christmas 2012! We’ll be sure to remind you all once it hits the stands later this year. Thanks everyone!
