It had me at … sketch! I was totally smitten when I spotted this unique trivet design … a silicon trivet created to look like a sketched pot and pan. Cue my muuuust-have-it-squeal, esp at a cost of $11.99 each (awesome sauce!!!). We finished our kitchen reno (floors, countertop, backsplash, etc.) but I still have some finishing touches to make, and with a brand new white countertop I knew I wanted a trivet into my design. So after I stopped squealing with excitement on my find, I purchased 2, one pot and one pan from here. Check out how they look below and how my kitchen is looking like lately. Let me know if you have any questions.
Oh, and some behind the scene facts – the pastry holder above had more goodies when I started taking photos, by the end of the shoot there were just 3 coconut cookies left (#icouldnotresist).
I also had to plant new basil (go dig some up from our garden) to put into the white hanging pot (I use basil a lot in salads and cooking) so when it came time for the shoot, there was NONE left indoors … so I placed camera down, and replaced it with a shovel (very elegant huh!) to play with dirt. All in the name of great staging/styling! So my friends, this (staging + eating + styling) is why some photo shoots take longer, wink! I guess I could save time and stop eating my props huh. Maybe.
