February 17th: Finally a wedding!

Well, the toolbox was a little rusty, but I finally got to work on a wedding this week! Not a huge event, so I was able to ease back into it! I only did 2 bouquets, altar flowers, & cake flowers for this wedding, but was eager to post something so here it is!

The bride wanted a very natural looking bouquet. I started with a base of acacia & seeded eucalyptus & added Escimo roses, Porceliana spray roses, arabicum, lilac, raspberries, hypericum, & stephanotis.

Check out the ribbon on the cake! The cake lady actually made this by using a regular chocolate brown satin & hot gluing the bow accent ribbon to it. I thought it was really neat! You see so much of the plain ribbon wrap, this is a nice twist!

For the DIY-ers out there, the cupcake stand is really just the cheap, white, cardboard ones you buy. The bride's sister painted the stand chocolate brown & hot glued the red trim around the edges. It looked really professional! So now, when the cupcakes are gone, at least the stand still looks good!
