Mood Boards

One of the tools I often use when starting a project with a client is to create a mood board.  I do this for interior design and also party planning.  So many people have a hard time visualizing their space or their event with just words to paint a picture.  I’ve found that mood boards help a ton with this.  It gives the client something to see and allows my idea to come across more clearly.  Here are a few that I’ve done and used with my favorite mood board app “Morpholio Board.”

Parties, Parties, Parties

I’ve had the opportunity to do some partying, I mean event planning, these last couple months.  It’s been a blast and also a ton of work getting prepared.  Lots of spray paint and zip ties and heavy heavy lifting.  We actually did a little advertising for one of the events and did the filming at my house!  It was a super cool experience.  Enjoy the photos from “The Grass is Greener Where You Water It” marriage event.

 

The Bitter Sweet Kind

There were books (not for reading, just for gazing), photo booths, speeches, laughs, and a few of those really great tears (you know, the bitter sweet kind).  And I’m pretty sure that’s how you measure a great high school graduation party.  This one’s a wrap. Thanks for letting me help out, University Baptist.  I loved every minute of decorating for The Next Chapter.

The Next Chapter

I’ve been known to get, er…swept away in a good project…but THIS one has got me in deep!  I’ve been asked to decorate a senior graduation event and the theme is, yep, you guessed it…”The Next Chapter.”  Books, books, books as far as my eyes can see!  I’ve scavenged garage sales and discount stores and I’ve begged for donations from friends.  At this point in the prep stage, I’m ripping off paperback covers and spray painting hard covers and seriously getting lost in all the beautiful and weird titles.  I have to stop myself from flipping through and reading a paragraph here and there.  But mostly, I’m finding myself pouring over the dedications.  Some are simple.  Some are long.  Some to editors or friends or a sister.  But my favorite one is this…

See what I mean…I’m in deep and oh how I love this job.
