Sometimes simplicity really steals the show when it comes to event décor, and never has this been more the case than in this absolutely gorgeous floral installation for a florist’s baby shower. Rather than go the typical route and decorate tables with vases filled with colorful flora, Nicole from Soil and Stem went avant-garde with a floating centerpiece that’s organic, free-flowing and a total show-stopper. With nearly 30k likes on Instagram, it’s safe to say this dreamy setup is breaking the internet.

We recently stalked – we mean – caught up with photographer Renata Stone to find out what these special floating pods actually are. Read on to find out in the jump below.

See Why Mystic Hot Springs is One of Utah’s Coolest Places To Go Before Winter Ends

Utah is secretly the best place on earth, says photographer Renata Stone. It’s not hard to see why if you’ve ever visited the Beehive State. It's a dramatic landscape that's as alien as it is western, and it’s either drenched in sunlight or starlight. In short, IT’S AMAZING.

So when Stone's friends came to visit, she had a good number of stunning spots to take them. Her ultimate choice was Mystic Hot Springs in “middle of nowhere Monroe.” Thanks to her beautiful photography skills, you can see her and her merry band soaking in outdoor tubs on what looks like another planet. It’s a good life when you have friends in the right places—and Utah’s definitely one of them.

Canyon Point, UT, United States

 

Sometimes we forget how much this great, expanse of a country has to offer in natural beauty. And seeing as it’s an election year, why not make one last resolution for 2016 to explore more stateside destinations. Plentiful in rock formations, canyons, deserts, and skyline, Utah’s Canyon Point is as exploration-worthy as it gets. Whether you and the ladies are looking to celebrate a bachelorette party, reunion or just get in some high-quality girl time, Amangiri is one of those nature-loving resorts that’s all about the treat yo’ self vibe.

Washington School House

Washington School House Hotel, Park Avenue, Park City, UT, United States

Pack up all your chunky knit sweaters and snow gear because you and your squad aren’t going to want to miss a trip to the slopes this year!  This 1889 small town schoolhouse has been gutted and renovated to the gills.  Expect lots of airy white space, bright sunlight, reclaimed wood floors, and beds so comfy it’s like you’re sleeping in a cloud.  We’d say this is the perfect girls trip for the skiing and snowboarding set, but you might not even want to leave the hotel!

Under Canvas Moab

Moab Under Canvas®, U.S. 191, Moab, UT, United States

Get lost With Us is a group of dreamers and gypsetters. A group of Walking talking guidebooks and world wanderers.The cast of characters? Six creatives, a toddler and three doggies. They are photographers, cinematographers, musicians and designers; professionals in the creative arts and event industry. Last year they embarked on a road trip adventure. They hopped in a camper and drove their way through the countryside, weaving in and out of the bucolic patchwork of rolling fields and serene desert landscapes. One of their stops was at brand new venue report member, Moab Under Canvas. This was the first week that Moab Under Canvas was opening their canvas safari tent and teepee doors for starry night adventures. We were so excited to have this creative crew document their glamping gathering and experience at this brand new hotspot.
