• Well, hello there beautiful.

    Welcome to the new blog for Meo Baaklini Photography!

    I absolutely love photographing people. There is something so personal and vulnerable about a portrait. When it comes to my weddings, I really enjoy the pace and atmosphere of elopements and intimate ceremonies.

    My other passion lies in the realm of dress up. I have an obsession for playing with hair & makeup and allowing women to feel as beautiful as they look. If you haven't already, you can watch my Behind the Scenes video to see what it's like at a session.

How to: DIY Bunting for Thanksgiving

I teamed up with Andrea at Avenle for a quick and simple DIY project, just in time for Thanksgiving. Here is a quick and easy DIY Bunting you can use to liven up your glorious day. Enjoy!

What you’ll need:

Burlap (A bunch. That is a technical term)

Printed Letters GIVE THANKS

Hot Glue Gun

Washi Tape & Scissors

Something round to trace

String to tie it all together

Coffee & Chit Chat


1. Print letters

2. Stack papers and trace a circle. Cut them out (easier to cut all together for consistency)

3. Cut burlap into rectangles (do NOT cut while wearing corduroy pants. We learned the hard way)

4. Take your Washi tape and make a little “roof” on your burlap. (There is a technical term, but I’m only one cup of coffee deep for the day. See the example to see what the heck I’m talking about.

5. Cut your little tails off the burlap.

6. Glue your letters on with the hot glue gun. (Feel free to add some sparkly stuff here!)

7. String it and hang it up!


Post a picture and tag #Avenle or #MeoBaaklini for us to see what you’ve come up with to dress up your decor!


Happy Thanksgiving!
