December 6th: Sip & See - Colleyville, TX

I received a call from a lady in Colleyville, Texas who stumbled across my blog & asked if I would consider a trip down to provide the floral decor for her Sip & See event! Of course I said yes!!!

Back to reality...the lady is actually my friend Brandi who I go visit quite often! Brandi just had her second baby & hosted a Sip & See at her house for friends & family to drop in, have a bite to eat, visit with friends, & see the newest addition to the family!

Obviously, the baby is a girl! We used flowers in many shades of pink & accented everything with her name or initials, feathers, & lots of sparkle! The rose balls above even had silver lettering that spelled out Ella. So cute!

The wreath graced the front door & gave guests a sneak peek as to what was going to be inside! Did you notice the floral "purse" a few pictures up?? It was a day that I was feeling very creative I guess!

In the entry we placed a curly willow tree with cards that guests could fill out with a note to the new baby that Brandi will scrapbook at a later time.

I had a ton of fun with this event! I even gave Brandi a crash course in floral design so she can do her own arrangements when I can't be of service. : ) Who knows, with some practice, maybe she could open a second location of Bella Design Studio in Texas! Did somebody say Franchise??

Here is a cool shot I took of mother & baby at a house in Austin.

November 29th: Julie &

Things are really going to slow down now. This was my last event during "wedding season." The bride opted for a twist on the traditional fall color scheme. We went with brighter shades of orange with splashes of pink. I loved how it turned out!
The bridal bouquet was a collection of roses, mini callas, hydrangea, bittersweet, & chocolate cosmos. The bridesmaids carried simple clusters of pink hydrangea.

Several centerpiece styles graced the tables. This was my favorite! Way different than any I have done lately. Long stem roses were arranged inside the vase amongst clear gems & water. The vases were lit from the base with disc lights.

Other tables housed cube vases with pink hydrangea blossoms.

The last style was lily bowls with floating gerbera daisies & floating candles. A very simple display but it comes across very striking with the candlelight & the reflection in the mirror.
The wedding was held at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Lees Summit, MO. The reception was at Bacchanalia in Overland Park, KS.

November 15th: Imre - Justus Wedding

This was a fun, fall wedding! The bride stayed somewhat traditional with a bouquet of ivory roses, hydrangea, mini callas, & accents of green hypericum berries.
The bridesmaids carried clusters of green spider mums, kermit poms, hypericum, & bittersweet berries.

Two different centerpiece styles filled the space. First were Bella's signature curly willow "trees" with orange gerbera daisies attached to the branches.

Second were cylinder trios filled with green apples submerged under water & lit from the base with large disc lights. Very simple, yet also very cool!
The wedding & reception were held at Sawyer Room in downtown Kansas City.

November 15th: Sinn - Luperico Wedding

Red roses were the theme of this wedding. The bride carried a bouquet of Black Magic roses with accents of folded aspidistra leaves, bear grass loops, & hypericum berries. Rhinestone accents were everywhere, including the bouquet & the ribbon treatment.
The bridesmaids carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet.

The flower girl carried a cute pomander of red sweetheart roses, hypericum berries, & of course...bling!
The wedding was at The Cathedral in downtown Kansas City. The reception was at Town Pavilion.
