Props & Set Styling

Hi everyone. I had so much fun reading all of your responses to my last junk in the trunk post with the library card file cabinet! It was neat to see how many of you remember using these and now appreciate the character and nostalgia of this great piece, I feel the same way!
I have to admit, it is always fun showing you how I use these pieces in my own home, but you might be wondering how I use all this rusty goodness outside of that. So I wanted to share something that I have been involved with lately! Remember a few weeks back when I shared the zesty kale salad recipe from Celebrate Nutrition? Well, I just found out that I am going to continue helping with set design and prop styling on these videos! So when you watch these videos you may see some familiar things!

My modern interpretation of a urban smoothie bar!
First, if you pay attention to some of the props used in the videos, along with surface textures and styling you will notice that they all have a House of Harvest vibe going on. Second, if you look in the background you will see House of Harvest’s casa, that’s right, these videos are shot in my home! Third I am also helping write the text on the chalkboard and throughout the videos (my hubby and I also made the chalkboard that I am writing on too!). Chalkboards and I have quite the history together… I used to get in trouble when I worked at Starbucks because I would spend hours drawing the menu board instead of making coffee…I guess I needed a creative outlet LOL!
Here is one of the videos I had a chance to help with. See if you can find where House of Harvest jumped in with props and set styling!
Me & Leanne being major goofballs! Who says work can’t be fun! Woops, watch out, taskmaster Ava dog is back!
Working on this job with this creative team has definitely given me the outlet I needed! The whole production of it all has been such a blast, and my little thumbprint is going to be throughout these creative and informative videos! My favorite part about working in set styling and props is just being able to transport an audience (and myself) with these story-telling pieces. Whether its seeing the old worn wooden spoon that takes you back to your grandma’s kitchen, or seeing a whole room set up for a lazy Sunday afternoon with coffee and baguettes, it’s the journey that your heart takes you on that makes it so exciting for me. I hope you enjoy coming along for the ride!
