{Straight from the Studio - Photo Shoot} Classic Holiday Collection

Styled Photo Shoot
The Classic Holiday Printable Design Collection
(50% off in our shop through November 30th!)


Adria and I had a whirlwind of a month! Late nights printing, cutting, prepping, decorating, lining trays, matting, and more! We are thrilled with how these holiday collection photo shoots turned out. Today, we are showing you the Classic Holiday collection shoot.

We know that you all are super creative and crafty and can mimic these ideas and even come up with your own ideas by using our classic holiday printable designs! We would LOVE to see what you do with our new holiday printable collections!


Becca Bond was our fabulous photographer and she nailed it. She has such an amazing eye for photography and composition.

Take a look at some of the photography Becca took of our styled dessert table.



The fun and whimsical wreaths above were from The Chic-Adee Shop on etsy. Melissa is an interior designer with a super fun blog. We just loved her style!

Melissa designed these to coordinate with our graphics and she hit it spot on. I love the POP of color that the wreaths give, especially paired with our graphics and delectable treats... Melissa is an interior designer and has the most unique and beautiful wreaths in her shop.

We were thrilled to have contributors from several "specialties" of etsy to help stock the table.

Charynn from Two Sugar Babies (on etsy) provided amazing fondant toppers. We used them for topping cupcakes and cookies. We sent her some samples of the printable designs to show her the inspiration and she delivered above and beyond what we had in mind!

The cupcake liners are from The Cupcake Social!

Amanda from Pretzels Pleaze (on etsy) provided beautiful chocolate covered pretzels
with details galore! She made several styles and flavors... YUM!
They looked so beautiful displayed on red hots! We were tempted to eat them the whole time we were setting up!


Lisa Paskin Stone from The Cookie Jar (Batches on etsy) provided picture perfect decorated sugar cookies that coordinated PERFECTLY with the style and color scheme of the collection. They look like they were meant to be together.... Beautiful craftsmanship.


Jennifer from Death By Cupcake (on etsy) provided super whimsical (and delish!) chocolate truffles. They were filled with the tastiest red velvet center! They looked so cute on the table!


Do you like the marshmallow skewers that I made? I drizzled them with red/white chocolate to look like candy canes. Popped them on top of the "hot cocoa" (was pudding in this case for staging purposes)... mmm!
Bake It Pretty provided red/white paper straws that looked amazing in our eggnog! (The next 2 photos were not Becca's pics. These are from our camera....eek!)


Spoonful of Sugar Shop (on etsy) provided white chocolate peppermint homemade marshmallows - to die for!

We showed our backdrop 2 ways - with 3 wreaths by Chic-Adee Shop and a 2nd version with a single wreath, since either setup could work for your table. Notice how dramatic the change of the "look" of the table is when you change one focal point. I, personally, love it with the bright vibrant wreaths from Chic-Adee Shop! Keep this in mind when setting up your backdrop. The focal point can change the entire effect of the table!

We have lots more eye candy and packaging ideas. Our printable collection includes a TON of designs to help you personalize and make your holidays super special and impressive!
Food labels, food labels... so fun! We included several designed versions in the package and they can be used for other things such as gift cards, too (since we include blank as well as some pre-personalized with common holiday goodies)

Gift tags galore in this package!

Mini Candy bar wrappers - how CUTE are they!? A big impact on a little treat!The logos can be used anywhere - Cut to be square or circle!
Food labels and the circle garland from the package are must haves!

Package up some cookies and tie with raffia/ribbon and a logo and it looks beautiful!


Dress up some treat containers with the logos, too!


Everyone brings a bottle of wine to their hostess, right? I can't tell you how many parties we go to around the holidays where we bring wine or champagne. I will be dressing my wine gifts up with these labels for sure! Plus, add the holiday hang tag to write a note at the top!



Cupcakes are so much snazzier with a fondant topper, or mix in some with logos, too for some more fun coordinating graphics! Cupcake liners from The Cupcake Social!


Gift boxes, candy jars,.....

Check out these little DIY projects that helped tie together our table - I hot glued old fashioned peppermint sticks around a low ball glass for a cute little touch to the center of the table... Candy cane votive.

The candy peppermint topiary trees were super simple to make, too!
Here I am putting the finishing touches on the project. This was a FUN one!

Don't forget the free printable "From the Kitchen of" Labels! Adorn any treat, baked goods or dish with these labels! FREE download from our blog.
