A sweet breakfast inspiration shoot by Bows and Arrows

categories Bachelorette + Shower, Favors + Gifts, Pretty Paper

On this hooray-it’s-Friday morning, we’re bringing you a shoot styled by Bows and Arrows. This soft, sweet, and quiet shoot is inspired by the wash of brightness and subtleness of colors seen in the morning light and also features a complete and utterly delicious breakfast: milk + donuts. We’re thinking this would make for a sweet breakfast-styled reception or a bridal shower with your gals!

The feel of this shoot was very casual and intimate, yet packed with detail and personality. We used shades of white on white with honey colored accents to create a very light and layered fresh morning look. All paper products were created on vintage letter press machines, flowers were locally sourced, and cotton, wheats, millets packed with peony and ranunculus, plus a bundle of homemade donuts completed our brunchtopia!

Our goal was to create something new using something old. We combined vintage milkglass, mix-matched china, striped paper straws, ceramic fruit crates, paper garland, and a table runner of cotton bolls.
