About the Project:

This was a personal project I created to develop a brand for, style and photograph an event to celebrate winter solstice, one of my favorite days of the year. The vibe for the celebration was festive, wintery, bountiful, and hopeful.

Synopsis

 

GOAL(S):

1. Design an aesthetic and "brand" for the event that would create anticipation and excitement, as well as highlight the hopeful and joyful feeling of solstice.

2. Style and shoot some beautiful photos of the event.

3. Throw a fun, beautiful and delicious party and celebrate with friends.

 

SOLUTION:

Delicious food, festive drinks, a cozy playlist, candles, vintage dishes, a handmade cake, and a great group of people all came together for a wonderful night of celebration 🥂❄️

A fun mix of typography, lots of cream and gold, and a collection of candles gave these layered invites a spark of anticipation.

The garnish-your-own-cocktail-bar was one of the highlights of the night, so I made this graphic to document all of the topping ideas we tried.

Little details like a spot-on playlist (ready to share with guests) make all the difference.
