Spring is officially here, and I am so happy to welcome the beginning of April! Spring brings so many wonderful things, like walks in the park with your pup, frolicking through new cities with your loved one, and sitting outside with a cup of tea and some macarons with your best friends.
Those are the images that come to mind when I envision Spring, and the feelings that I wanted to evoke through the images I styled for the Sweet Darling Patisserie Spring Collection! I adore how Zipporah Photography brought my vision to life through her beautiful photographs.
The Spring Collection is light and airy, while still full of color and the tastiest flavors you'll ever try! When Sarah, the founder of Sweet Darling Patisserie, and I were discussing styling ideas for this collection, we kept coming back to the idea of a garden tea party. That was the foundation of each photograph I styled, from sourcing the props to picking the colors.
I adore how all of the flavors come together as a whole collection, and I also loved styling each flavor with its own story!
Cotton Candy was one of my favorite flavors to style. The flavor reminds me of the joyous, carefree times of being a little girl. I wanted to keep that in mind while styling this flavor story, but I also wanted to add a touch of sophistication. As if a lovely lady in her mid twenties was picking up a macaron again for the first time since she was a child, and excited about the joy it brought back to her lips!
Lavender Lemon is such a delicate flavor! I intentionally used mostly white, gold and pastels throughout this flavor story to give the photos an airy quality. I imagined a darling lady getting ready in the morning for a sweet Sunday afternoon with friends, adding that last touch of Chanel to her wrists before grabbing her package of macarons to gift to everyone.
Buttercup is oh so playful. It is the flavor that stands out from the bunch, and should be styled as such! The bold stripes, gold glitter and pops of fuchsia all embody a lady with sass who is excited to take her afternoon of exploring the city with friends into the late hours of the evening, giggling over glasses of champagne the entire time.
Coco Lime is the flavor that will instantly have you desiring a tropical getaway. It is for the ladies whose ideal vacation is spent painting their nails, reading a good book with the sun on their face while sipping Perrier with a twist of lime. Oh cabana boy, three coco lime macarons please and thank you!
Peaches and Cream is for the sweetest of sweet Southern belles. The girls who don their best heels to church, and never arrive empty handed. Their go-to sweet surprise? A hand written note accompanied by a bouquet of fresh flowers and a bundle of macarons, of course!
Ladies who love these macarons are the perfect combination of sweet, loving and playful. They enjoy nothing more than spending quality time with loved ones and long conversations over delectable treats.
Does that sound like you? If you're curious to try these tasty pastries for yourself, you can pick up a dozen or half dozen of the Spring Collection online, or if you are local to Nashville you can swing by The Village Market in Hillsboro Village to pick some up in person from their adorable macaron cart!
