Have you ever wondered what goes into creating the party displays we share here and on One Charming Party? Well today we thought we’d give you a little glimpse behind the scenes for our Bali Birthday Party shoot at Z Gallerie in Scottsdale.
Let me start by saying that it is rare for us to go to a commercial location to shoot, but at times we just don’t have anything at our homes or a friends’ home that will provide just the right backdrop. After planning our Bali-inspired birthday party we were on the hunt for the perfect photo shoot location. Being in the Phoenix desert, a lush, tropical setting can be hard to come by.
Bettijo was shopping at one of our favorite spots called Kierland Commons and wandered into the Z Gallerie. Bettijo says she stopped dead in her tracks when she saw the beautiful, carved Pradesh Day Bed. She knew she’d found the perfect set for our Bali party!
We are forever grateful to Andre and the rest of the wonderful staff of Z Gallerie for being such great hosts during our shoot. Can I just tell you how amazingly handy it is to do a photo shoot in a store like Z Gallerie? With free reign of such a spectacular collection of well-curated accessories — we were in heaven! If you’ve never shopped at Z Gallerie before you simply must go.
