August 16th: St. Andrew's Bridal Fair




Bouquet of Ravel roses, hot pink spray roses, & green hydrangea. Stems were wrapped with 3 ribbon varieties & accented with a rhinestone buckle.Contemporary style fall bouquet composed of flame mini callas, orange spray roses, burgundy cymbidium orchids, & vine maple.
I loved this bouquet! An assortment of dahlias in shades of burgundy, orange, & pink with stemmed kale. Stems were wrapped with brown satin & an overlay of sage green.
Another of my favorites! Combination of Freedom & Red Intuition roses trimmed with black feathers. Stems were wrapped with black satin ribbon & finished with rhinestone buckle.
Earthy display of euphorbia, Sahara roses, scabiosa pods, & amaranthus.



Tall centerpiece composed of birch branches surrounded by euphorbia, Sahara roses, & stemmed artichokes.

I was given a theme of red, black, & silver for the guest table setup. I chose to do a vase of red dogwood branches. I attached crystals & red roses to the branches. The top of the vase was lined with black feathers. I wrapped black wire around outside of vase & attached red roses in sort of a "climbing" fashion. Definitely using the opportunity to be creative!

This centerpiece centered around a really cool, preserved curly willow branch I found. The branch has been dyed a deep, coffee brown & is very sturdy. You could hang many things from the branches...in this case I hung cymbidium orchids. The branches sat in a base of green spider mums. This was my first attempt at doing anything with these branches. I thought it turned out pretty cool!

You are so awesome! I love, love, love the dahlia bouquet...of course! AND all of the feathers you are using these days. We all know I'm a fan of the feathers! I like to think that they originated with me! ;) I can't believe it's been almost a year...and I still say you were the BEST money we spent!
