Last year I styled this Apple themed 3rd birthday party at a local apple orchard. It was my very first “styled” shoot and it was to show off my very first printable party collection!
The shoot was set up among the rows of apple trees at Carter Hill Orchard. All of the food, from the mini apple pies to the apple cider doughnuts, was ‘apple’ themed. I learned a couple lessons during this shoot… Firstly, September in New Hampshire is still too hot to photograph buttercream frosted cupcakes. They melted within minutes even though they had been frozen the night before! Finally, fresh apple cider doughnuts, though very very yummy, DO NOT stack well. We kept hearing things drop and I assumed it was apples falling off the trees around us. Um, no! They were donuts sliding off the back of the table until finally the entire ‘doughnut cake’ fell down.
