How many of you lovelies have read Anne of Green Gables? Or maybe you watched the movies that were made based on the books? It was one of my favorite books when I was younger. In fact, when I was in 5th grade my family took a trip to Prince Edward Island so my sisters and I could see the farmhouse + woods that inspired the book. :) In today’s fun styled shoot, Stage Right Etc (located in Kelowna, British Columbia) paid homage to the story and setting for Anne of Green Gables while also giving it their own twist – like the awesome tea cup centerpiece!
Gilbert calls Anne “Carrots” when they first meet which makes Anne initially loathe him but it later becomes an endearing nickname when they fall in love. To keep with the carrot theme, Sweet On You make mini carrot cakes for each place setting in a sweet (literally) reference to this nickname. :) Bailey + Yanni, a real couple in love, were their Anne + Gilbert and did an amazing job. The dress “Anne” is wearing was an amazing vintage find! Thanks so much to Jessica Zais Photography for the photos.
In the beginning of the book, Anne renames the tunnel of blossoms Matthew and her ride through from “The Avenue” to “White Way of Delight.” Love that they found a tunnel of blossoms for their dinner location and they even called it out with a cute sign.
So, fans of the book and/or movie, was your favorite scene interpreted above? If not, what was your favorite scene? I’d love to hear in the comments. :)
