What A Cake!

Another amazing creation by Rebekah Foster! My friend was hosting a 60th birthday party for her dad who loves his electric guitar! This is all cake! The handle was chocolate & the rest was white! So realistic, no one believed it was really a cake until we cut into it!

April 11th: Creative with Callas!

The only rule on this wedding reception was to use callas & candles in low presentations. Some are traditional while others were hit with that "Bella Funk!"

March 28th: Lisa & Dave

What a day for a wedding! I couldn't take my normal bouquet shots, thanks to the I copied these off of the photographer's blog! Thanks Rebecca Peters!
The wedding was shades of purple from lavender to eggplant. Flower selection included roses, sweet pea, lisianthus, dusty miller, & grape hyacinth to name a few.

March 21st: KISS Events "Engaged" Seminar

Sharon with KISS Events invited me to participate in a seminar for newly engaged couples. The event focused on how to have an elegant event without breaking the bank. Here are a few of my designs that fit the theme!A lot of bang for the buck! If you are concerned about having one small centerpiece in the center of a 60" round, this is an excellent alternative. You can choose from several different flower varieties to help adjust cost. The bride provides her own candles, so the cost of this with vase rental, ribbon, flowers, & votives can start at $45 per table!
Simple rose bowl jazzed up with a boa of pale pink feathers! Starting at $35.

Simple hydrangea dressed up with coordinating ribbons on varying size cube vases. Starting at $35.

Fun, funky, unique bridal bouquet. Not a bargain bouquet, but just wanted to show how to do something out of the ordinary, but still be "bridal." I used roses, spider gerber daisies, orchids, fern curls, dianthus, lysmachia, etc. The stems were wrapped in a dark brown twine.

This is a budget friendly alternative. Bouquet composed of all white hydrangea. Very beautiful, simple, & elegant! This bridal bouquet would only be $50! I encourage any bride who is on a tight budget & looking to have gorgeous bridal party flowers, church decorations, & centerpieces to look at doing an all hydrangea wedding!

March 14th: Lyndsey & Jesse

Bridal bouquet designed in layered fashion. Hot pink gerber daisies surrounded by ring of delphinium, spider mums, roses, & hypericum. Bridesmaids each carried a different color to coordinate with their shoes! Thought that was a very cute idea!

Several centerpiece styles filled the reception. The theme was bright, colorful, & family friendly. Here are a few of the styles I created!

The front of the head table was lined with 30 blooms of hot pink roses displayed in small cube vases.
