The Sweetest of Treats

Here at Birch & Brass, we don’t take on many coordination clients. We instead opt to work with a limited clientele that truly encapsulates the exact same aesthetics and personalities of our own – we’re a little bit eccentric, lovers of everything Free People, and we certainly know that we can’t be everything to everyone.

When we originally met Danae and her mother seemingly many moons ago, we had an instant connection. A gorgeous client of ours, Danae has been a baker for many years and recently launched her own company, Feathers and Frosting. Not only are her baked goods absolutely beautiful (let’s face it – us lady folk care about the appearance of our indulgences), but they also taste like absolute perfection. Seriously, we just about went into a food coma after indulging in one too many of her treats at a pop-up shop we hosted together in December. As relative newbies ourselves to the entrepreneurial world, we enjoy nothing more than spreading the word about businesses we love & hope they’ll grow to the success they deserve!

Danae was pairing up for a winter inspired shoot with our friend Melody of Melody’s Joy, and it was a done deal when they asked us to contribute a few pieces to their spread. Melody’s another amazingly talented woman that’s speaking our love language; Melody styles dessert tables and does so with the most amazing of detailed touches, utilizing her vintage tabletop rentals. Her inventory features beautiful vintage dessert pieces, most of them early American pieces. As Depression glass collectors ourselves, we knew this was going to be a match made in sweet treat heaven.

Shot at Lenoir, these beautiful film images were captured by the very talented Amanda Hartfield. Our Willow buffet has never been in better company, don’t you agree? Here’s to hoping that you’ll incorporate some of these gorgeous design elements into your next special affair.
