Melissa chose to use various shades of green  and white for her bridal bouquet on Saturday. She loves texture and we decided to use flowers that were just that…..TEXTURED. We used a variety of  green spider mums, pale green carnations (which i wouldn’t normally use but for this bouquet turned out awesome) green and white parrot tulips, super green roses, ranucs and white stephanotis w/ black jewels to add a little pop.  I cant wait for Melissa and Brad’s wedding coming up in June!

-On a side note…….I apologize for lack of posting . There are some great things in the works right now and if all goes well….things are going to be changing. For the better!





Amy Take Two

WARING>>>>>>>> The images you are about to see were taken in bad lighting on my iPhone. Please forgive me.

This is Amy’s wedding day bouquet and her new hubby’s (Mitch) boutonniere. For the bouquet we used blue iris, green cymbidium orchids, eggplant callas and peacock feathers. I love the texture and the iris’s remind me so much of a peacock. For Mitch’s boutonniere we kept it simple with a single mini calla and the colorful peacock feather. We then adorned it with some of my fav bullion wire which made the colors just pop! Thank you Amy and Mitch for being such great clients!

 

P.S.- Hopefully we can get some better pics from the fabulous Tawsha from The Color Blue Photography.





Amy’s feathers

29 09 2008

Saturday was Amy’s bridal sitting. For her bouquet she wanted something colorful and it definitely had to have peacock feathers! We used super green roses, purple lisianthus, purple veronica, brown dahlias & peacock feathers. Then we topped it off with some luscious brown satin and alternating pearl head pins. Love it!

P.S.-The top 2 photos were taken by the very talented Tawsha @ The Color Blue Photography. I love the pink bike! This just shows how important having a pro photographer is.





Terracotta

18 09 2008

Just thought i would share a fun little post for today.  A bright topiary made of 3 items: a terracotta pot, Spanish moss and orange roses. Great for centerpieces, larger in scale for a banquet table or just as a thoughtful gift. Enjoy!





Spread your wings

I was asked by my husbands good friend if i could put together a little something for his wife. She is half way through her 4th pregnancy with a baby girl. What a sweet husband! So my thoughts were…….what better than babies and butterflies?! Bouquet was made of pink gerber daisies, green kermit mums and orange roses. I also added a few delicate butterflies for a little something extra.





Kermit’s a Frog Right?

 Wrong…. or maybe not! I love the way this turned out. Kermit mums are some of my favorite flowers to work with. They are sturdy and can be used for anything. We took these little guys and decorated a flower girls basket. This adds so much more pizazz than a regular old wicker basket. We add your color ribbon and…….wahla!





Polka Dots & Pomanders

5 09 2008

One of my favorite things ever are pomander balls. Not only are they super adorable, but they remind me of polka dots and i LOVE polka dots! Pomanders are so versatile and can be used in any part of your venue. Whether they are hanging on sheppards hooks down the isle or on the wrist of your very adorable flower girl. They come in any size and we can usually customize them to your wedding colors.

This pomander is made of green kermit mums with teal pearl head pins. For some extra fun and whimsy we hung it from my favorite zebra print ribbon.
