>>Modern Southwest Brunch>>

I absolutely love a colorful, affordable and just fun themed party.  And I had the rare opportunity to use complete creative freedom with this shoot.  Drawing inspiration from our daily gorgeous Phoenix sunrise and it’s light, silhouettes, plant life and color palette I couldn’t wait to dig in and create a party that would represent this beautiful city.event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-44  Isn’t the tiered tray a beaut?  So versatile for a party, jewelry stand or fruit tray.  Found at World Market.event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-41  This southwest breakfast bar consisted of fresh berry parfaits, breakfast burrito bites, lemon and cranberry scones and of course all of the fixings. You can find the glass jars with spoons here. http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/240ml-clear-glass-jar-with-cork-lid-and-wood-spoon-710798/ event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-35 event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-26 event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-29 event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-31 event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-48  The  beautiful Amethyst Mexican Baja Beach blanket is from Nosh Studio. Her blankets are incredibly soft and gorgeous.  All of her products are 100% fair trade from Mexico and a percentage of her proceeds go to providing Birthday parties for children in need.  How cool is that? http://noshstudio.bigcartel.com/product/amethyst-mexican-baja-beach-blanket  event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-21event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-16These boxes were an amazing find at Anthro this spring!  event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-58    I craigslisted these palettes for a few bucks a piece and about $10 in paint samples from Lowes these grungy, dirty wood planks turned into a vibrant background and focal wall for the breakfast table.event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-60This thrifted weave turned out to be the most special and fun part of the entire shoot.  It was from the 70’s yellowed and acrylic but a mean amount of purple overdye spruced this back to life.  Slitting through part of the mesh backing, I tucked the succulents into the piece making it a live piece of artwork.event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-68event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-125event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-135event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-95event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-90The small pots were so fun to paint in blush pink/peach and gold. event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-101 The plates, spoons, vases and napkins are from Anthro.  The plates are so amazing and I’m sad I didn’t pick up more than 4 when they went on sale! event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-105event_Jess_DesertSunriseBrunch_2015-116Thank you Amber of The Amber Image for your beautiful photography and capturing the colors, textures and spirit of this shoot!
