Introducing The New Black, COPPER!
Valentine's is filled with red, pink and white. It fills the store shelves and party blogs. In November 2013 when I started thinking of Valentine's Day, I didn't want to do the typical Valentine's colours. But what colour? Copper came to my mind. Gold and Silver are such metallic hogs, it's Copper's time to shine. Of course when I looked around for copper items I couldn't find any. I knew I was on to something. I love it when I can't find something I'm looking for. It means it's not popular, which I love. I was so excited about not seeing copper everywhere and then the day before my shoot, I saw Triple M Good Parties on her Facebook page write that copper is her new black. Great party minds think alike :)
In the party world, a lot of the ladies are tired of seeing parties in the snow where no real party would actually take place. So I asked on my Facebook page if you wanted to see the Valentine's shoot in the snow which is not typical for Oregon and you said YES! Great idea my friends. The purple and copper POP against the white of the snow.

Auntie Bea's Bakery did a beautiful job of capturing the theme of my party with her jewel cookies frosted in glittery copper and purple.
Glitter cupcake liners from Parties in Style get dressed up with a jewel. I frosted the cupcakes in purple and added disco dusted chocolate jewels. Have you ever worked with disco dust? It's so pretty but it gets just everywhere.
I had to move the shoot indoors because the wind began to pick up and blow snow everywhere.
Jewel Rice Krispies glittered up with disco dust.
Chocolate covered marshmallows dipped in chocolate and glittered up with disco dust.
