Great Gatsby-Inspired Shoot on Style Me Pretty

Have you seen the movie The Great Gatsby (released last month)?  Awesome movie, and an even better book – one of the “great American classics”!  The 1920’s seem like such a fun era.  So when Karine from Seasons of Life Events and Evonne from U Me Us Studios contacted us about creating a Great Gatsby-Inspired photo shoot we were super excited!

We created a 3-tier fondant cake to embody the 1920’s flair!  We included a simple white Art Deco style pattern across the pale gold fondant and the middle tier was emphasized with a band of sugar gold sequins. I LOVE SEQUINS!  The gold sequin band was made to mimic the fun headband pieces the women of this era so stylishly rocked!  And the band was completed with a gold 1920’s geometrical style centerpiece.

Style Me Pretty Destinations has featured our shoot on their blog: Great Gatsby Inspired Photo Shoot from  U Me Us Studios + Seasons of Life Events.
