Sneak peek at what I’m up to today: my Pinterest inspiration board for a photo shoot, code named “project classy Christmas.” I know the suspense is killing you. The biggest challenge when styling this photo shoot is going to be keeping a straight face/not peeing in my pants. I know. Sometimes even I am jealous of my own job.
I had so much fun styling Jessica Davis‘s holiday party dessert bar. She thought I was crazy when I asked her to empty out her hutch so I could use it for displaying the dessert goodies (usually it’s full of baby blankets and other kids photography photo shoot props).
The candy bar had a pale blue, white and silver theme. Of course there aren’t too many foods out there that are blue, so most everything was white. We made an exception to the color palette rule for chocolate! I used lots of white candy dishes, bowls and plates to create different heights and layers. Then I threw in some turquoise, white and silver Christmas ornaments and glittery props. Everything shown is from Jessica, her fiancÃ©, or my personal collection.
The party was a great success. Jessica raised well over $1,000 for OMO CHILD, and I am so happy to say that the raffle prizes were a hit. My son won the iPad! He hasn’t put it down since!

It’s that super busy time of year, again: Holiday Party Season! I’ll be at Jessica Davis’s holiday party tonight, to support my favorite photographer and Omo Child, a cause we both care about deeply. Last night I helped set up the pretty candy bar. I’ll share photos next week.
If you’ll be in Solana Beach this evening stop by her studio for yummy treats, a beautiful slideshow of photos Jessica took on her last trip to Ethiopia, and an awesome raffle. Raffle items include an iPad, a portrait session with Jessica, $400 worth of Delphine letterpress cards, gift certificates for massage, Bink & Boo baby lovelies, Sweet Paper goodies, a Bixby & Ball gift certificate, merchandise from Jennifer Price Studio, and lots more! (Bring cash for the raffle: tickets are $25 ea). Â Hope to see you tonight!
P.s., that’s Jessica’s new logo, designed by me/Delphine.
