Change is Good

As many of you already know...I have merged with Needham Floral! I am very excited for this new chapter in the evolution of Bella Design Studio!

Why the change? Plain & simple, I didn't want the liabilities involved with being self-employed any longer. I learned everything I know from Dan Needham when I began working for him in November of 1999. Since then, I have remained close with the business & it's employees, even after starting Bella in 2005. I am now the Wedding Consultant & Designer for Needham Floral.

What does that mean for current & prospective brides? Nothing has changed in how your weddings are priced, designed, delivered, etc. The only difference is that all payments are now made to Needham Floral instead of Bella. I am still your point of contact & will oversee all elements of the flowers for your wedding.

Keep your eye out for other changes as well! I am in the process of creating a new logo to incorporate both the Bella & Needham brands. We will also be launching a new website in the coming months!

Feel free to drop by & see us sometime!

One of my favorite color schemes from last year! I can't believe it took me this long to post it!
The bridal bouquet was composed of eggplant mini callas, peach garden roses, & lady slipper orchids. The bridesmaids carried striking bouquets in shades of peach & burnt orange!
For the reception, the venue offered colored lighting, so we didn't want the flowers to get lost in the light show...so we opted for all white! Lampshades, purple water, artichokes, & kale all set the stage for a fabulous event!

A traditional fall wedding! The bride carried a bouquet composed of all white & ivory roses. The bridesmaids carried an assortment of roses & dahlias in shades of red.
The reception tables displayed centerpieces in three different styles. My favorite...the Pottery Barn branches for the tall centerpieces!! I own & rent these for arrangments. Such a simple & inexpensive option for lots of WOW!

May 8, 2010

Vibrant hues of pink, green, & purple were the colors for this May wedding! We used roses, peonies, lisianthus, hydrangea, stock, hypericum, & the list goes on!

June 5, 2010

Not only did I provide the fabulous flowers for this event...but I was a bridesmaid as well! Therefore, there aren't any pictures of the bridal party bouquets, just centerpieces. The bride's favorite color is hot pink & favorite flower is the gerber daisy. And she requested lots of BLING! This is what I came up with.

The 2010 Wedding Season has just begun but I already have my favorite of the year! The bride's colors were black & white with pops of deep pink & fuschia provided by the flowers. We used hydrangea, roses, orchids, & stock to create the arrangements featured below. Enjoy!
