garden inspired centerpieces

Garland for days

When this bride contacted me for her wedding I was so excited I couldn't contain myself!  I absolutely love long tables and filling them with gorgeous garland of greenery.  The bride was so much fun to work with and so detail oriented.  She spray painted all the centerpieces herself and provided an amazing old rustic ladder for her alter as well as a wooden welcome sign, bar cart and sign in table that were truly unique.   I even got to use my new white shutter screen which was perfect for place cards and for a backdrop for the head table.  It was truly a fantastic collaboration, we were totally on the same page for everything and I think that shows.

Check out the amazing photos George Street Photo captured of the wedding.  (some photos are my own, I'm sure you can tell which ones lol)

Adding garland to a gift table is a great way to dress it up.

The bride used old pages from a book for her place cards.  They fit perfectly into the slats of the screen.

April florals

I'm so sorry I'm behind on my blog.  Here is an arrangement and bouquet I did in April in mauve, white, and burgundy.  I love the color combination, it's so rich and elegant.  And, I really can't get enough of astrantia.  It's seriously one of my favorite flowers right now.  

Baby shower

I can not control my excitement for becoming an Auntie for the first time.  Is it the end of January yet??  It'll finally be my turn to spoil a little cutie!   And my kids can't wait either, which is even more fun to see.  They are finally going to have a first cousin.  

As I wait and wait and wait for the little sweetie to arrive I needed to throw a girlie baby shower for my sister-in-law.  It was so much fun putting everything together.  I definitely had to control myself not to go overboard, so I thought a little bit is ok :)  

Instead of doing traditional games for the shower I decided to teach everyone how to make flower crowns.  It was SO much fun!  

Finally got to use my new screen as a backdrop.  LOVE IT!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This year I decided to do something a bit different for Thanksgiving.  Instead of the traditional orange tons I went for burgundy and berry tones.  It created such warmth at the table, I just loved it!
