When sweet Elisabeth, with Elisabeth and Butter, contacted us about a super fun shoot with Draper James of course our southern (and Reese Witherspoon!) loving hearts did not skip a beat in saying YES.  With honor and respect for family and heritage, Draper James ranks high on our list with likeminded ideals of hospitality, grace and charm.  To boast those southern principles loud and proud we channeled our inner Shelby (Steel Magnolias, friends) and went with a signature blush and bashful palette.

We filled our flower buckets with feminine pinks and pops of salmon tones as our goal was to design something full of summer whimsy that would perfectly compliment those lovely hints of Draper James blue seen in the runner and magnolia placemats. Speaking of blue, we are suckers for blueberry, peach, and blackberry cobbler.  Okay, well maybe any cobbler for that matter.  Truth is, Elisabeth is sharing her easy peasy mini blackberry cobbler recipe over on Draper James blog (link below for ya!) that we are sure you will want to place in that handy cookbook of yours. Enjoy friends, and wishing you a fruitful summer! Now get to pickin’ those berries and whippin’ up the sweetest treats!
