Mrs. Claus Cookie Shop!

  Choosing a Christmas theme for the upcoming issue of Party Style Magazine was so much fun. I love holiday decor that has a classic, inviting, home made feel. I always try to incorporate a slight spin or unique element to it. Instead of the focus being on Santa I went a very feminine direction and decided to make Mrs. Claus the star. I chose to play up a cookie and baking element. I've always adored gingerbread men so I thought they would make the perfect addition. The location of the shoot was at an old historical cabin in my home town. We turned the outside of it into the official theme Mrs. Claus Cookie Shop! The house really captured the old timey, baking element that I was shooting for. Our two lovely little models were adorned in gingerbread dresses while they were served yummy cookies by our adorable Mrs. Claus! We let Santa do the tough job this year while we relaxed and enjoyed cookies!
