A Winters Dream Holiday Tablescape

It’s already December (how?!) and all I can do is reminisce about a holiday styled shoot I created a few years back with my lovely and very talented friend, Amy from Confetti and Co.!

When I started The Swank Social, it was all about celebrations, confetti and creative collaborations.  It was a fun time and I made so many connections through the work that I did, but it wasn’t fulfilling enough for me.  Plus, I had a personal reason why I decided to go back to work full-time (best decision ever!) and slowly concentrate on growing The Swank Social as a blog during my spare time lifestyle blog.  It only took a year to finally grasp and understand how to balance my time.

Actually, scratch that.

I still don’t know how to balance my time.  I’m almost certain that I’ll never figure that out, but here we are!

Okay, back to the holidays and Christmas.  And back to the days where a crisp, white studio space was extremely hard to come by.  We booked (the now defunct) Sugar Studios for our collaborative shoot and started working our magic:

While I do miss the days where I got to plan and execute events that were dear to my clients’ hearts, I’m so fortunate to have this social platform that allows me to keep creating, collaborating and styling!  Currently, I’m just trying to let it settle in that it’s almost Christmas!!
