Forbidden Forest Feast by Hints of Whimsy

I am guessing that by now everyone is ready to see the entire shoot... no more sneaks!  :)

First we'd like to thank all the vendors who helped and participated in the shoot, we couldn't have done it without them ~

Erin Voirol, Swoon Events {https://www.facebook.com/swoonevents}
Chelsea McDougald, Swoon Events {https://www.facebook.com/swoonevents}
Heidi Varden, Express Yourself Cakes {https://www.facebook.com/ExpressYourselfCakesHamptonVa}

And a huge thank you to our little models - Anne, Sean, Kelly, Seth, Sandy, and Parker!

As you know, our first event - The Forbidden Forest Feast - was a Harry Potter themed event.  It was complete with wands, wizards, quidditch, chocolate frogs, butter beer, and an owl!  And it ended up being completely magical.  Hearing the models declare "This is the best day EVER!" definitely made every second of work worthwhile! :)

Now, for what you're really here for - the photos!

You're invited!

A few Details -
Every Flavor!

The  AMAZING cake by Heidi!

There has to be potions!


It wouldn't be a Harry Potter feast without a Pumpkin Juice toast to begin it!

Our fantastic little models!  We couldn't have asked for better wizards!

It was a lot of fun and a lot of work getting everything ready and finalized for the shoot, and we can't wait to do it again with another theme! Thanks again to our wonderful vendors and models, we couldn't have done it without all of you! Keep checking back for some DIY tutorials!
