For April’s issue of San Diego Magazine, we took our monthly Treads article outdoors to feature a bohemian-style picnic beneath the giant Monterey oaks.
I had a wonderful time styling this shoot! It involved quite a bit of running back and forth between Crate & Barrel, Anthropologie, Target and West Elm, but choosing the bright, vivid color palette and the products to be featured was plenty of fun.

It was a beautiful day and the perfect setting for an afternoon of lounging on lazy floor cushions besides a low table (made of two West Elm benches) and a lunch of clementines .
The beautiful glassware from Anthropologie had to have been my favorite – I might have to pick up a set of the above pink Helianthus goblets!
My May feature is nearly finished, I’m just now wrapping up a Trends article on the perfect outdoor entertaining space. More to come…
