Here it is as promised … the DIY instructions for the pears from the editorial photo shoot. They are a tad bit labor intensive, but what else can you expect for royalty?? The box would be stunning with just a place card inside, and the pears could also stand alone as a wedding favor.
Enjoy a few sneak peek photos from the table setting from our Napoleon and Josephine styled shoot, and more photos of The Dining Reception are scheduled to be on the blog on March 18th.
A special thanks goes out to Sabrena Deal of S Carter Studios for thinking outside of the box (couldn’t resist) and using her talents to bring us a gorgeous DIY. She is a photographer in addition to being creative as you will see below.
Here are Sabrena’s instructions for the favors …
Supplies for one favor: 1 pear, chocolate icing, icing bag with small icing tip, 1 can gold spray paint, 1 can spray polyurethane, one small wooden box with hinged lid, silver ribbon, silver foil paper, hot glue gun
Step 1: Coat the wooden box with polyerethane, and let it dry.
Step 2: Coat the box with 2 coats of gold spray paint.
Step 3: Cut thin strips of silver foil, and glue them to the bottom half of the box on all three sides
Step 4: Using hot glue, glue ribbon to inside of box to create “nest” effect
Step 5: Set the pear inside.
Step 6: Using the icing, icing bag and tip, gently squeeze chocolate frosting onto pear in desired monogram!
Many thanks also to Jeremiah Guelzo of Stone Blue Productions for all of the stunning images from our shoot. Love Is in the Air made the calligraphy place cards, RS Exclusive styled the table, and Interiors by Moyanne furnished several of the items on the table along with providing the table itself!
