Two Fabulous Weddings this weekend !!

Well, I must say, we do have the opportunity to create flowers for some of the area's most beautiful brides !!

Kelly and I had two wonderful weddings this past weekend. She was over near the Douglas Loop and I was at Garden Court. I do promise to have some photos up this week. Kelly was definitely able to snap more shots than I. She gave me a sneak peak late Saturday. We had alot more decor to set up which cut into our photo time.

Kelly's bride, Sara, went for a traditional romantic wedding.. she carried a hand tied bouquet of imported English and Equadoran roses, blue and white hydrangea and delphinium accent. Her attendant's carried mixed English garden bouquets of plum mini calla lily, lavender hydrangea, blue delphinium, with some additional blossoms and variegated tree ivy and hosta foliage. Her church decor included large traditional arrangements of garden flowers to compliment the bouquets with single white lilies on the pews. She had complimentary styles at the reception for her buffet and guest's tables. A variety of blossoms adorned the cake. It looked amazing and Kelly said Sara was delighted with everything.

As for my wedding at Garden Court... Nicole our bride, opted for a more contemporary presentation. Her bouquet consisted of creme cymbidium orchids with raspberry roses and purple lisianthus as the accent. Studded throughout her bouquet were oversized pearls with crystal studs in the center. Her attendants carried contemporary hand tied bouquets of Green cymbidium orchids, cranberry dahlia, raspberry and orange roses, kangaroo paw and raspberry stock with a yellow craspedia accent.

Her reception consisted of various arrangements on all the guest's tables. The bride's and bridal party's tables enjoyed elevated arrangements of assorted orchids, roses, trumpet vine, dahlia, stock and other florwes as accent colors. The 'Hundley Hall' was draped with assorted fabrics to accent the party's colors. Also installed just for Nicole's event, were illuminated fountains and reflective glass walls which totally enhanced the atmosphere of the room. She selected a luscious chocolate stacked square cake. Her cake topper was a special gift from her father, a metal craftsman. He designed for her the monogram of her new last name. It was a lovely and precious gift.

We will post photos from both of these weddings. I will also post some photos from another wedding we had a few weeks ago.

Thanks for visiting.

I haven't gotten lost !

Well, it's been a few weeks since my last post. I have definite issues with computers-- ask Kim..once she stops laughing she'll confirm my incompetence.

I do promise more photos ASAP because we have some amazing weddings on next week's schedule. One at Garden Court,the other at Big Springs Country Club. Each completely different taste. One romantic and traditional..the other contemporary and chic.

Aside from that.. the fall merchandise is slowly arriving at the's quite spiffy great gifts for you and the home. We've begun the fall and holiday silks. Kelly has been a decorating maniac in the shop and it looks fab- of course! She's amazing.

Cary has been busy updating our customer list. I am amazed at how many clients have been added since the new year.. lots of wonderful people. We'll have lots of invitations for the Open House in November.

Well, that's it for now---except we have two new products to unveil in September. One is for anyone wanting something great for a party be it birthday at the office or anniversary at home--what could it be?? The other is a new twist for busy brides..Stay tuned.

Beautiful flowers..are just the Beginning!!
