Modern Holiday Sparkle

13 Dec

I loved the Modern Holiday shoot on 100 layer Cake shot by Erin Hearts Court. While I am a traditional Christmas girl at heart, there is always a special place in my heart for gold glitter and a tinsel tree. Layering is the key to an impactful mantle, and hopefully this pretty shoot will give you some great ideas for your space this Christmas.
