Recently I had the honor to do the flowers for an old friend of mine. His lovely new bride had some fabulous taste mixed in with a DIY vision that created a warm and bright wedding! With her bridal bouquet full of peonies, dahlias, tulips and roses it was an explosion of color that took my breath away!
The jasmine vine and wildflower greens were my favorite accent to these beautiful flowers!
Her bridesmaids wore a bright coral color dress so we decided to tone down their bouquets and stick to neutral colors. Ivory dahlias, stock, roses and some bright tulips made these bouquets fabulous!
Looking at their bouquets up close and personal really helps you to see the fabulous colors and textures in these little beauties!
For their ceremony, an arch provided by the venue was decorated in natural vines, curly willow and these amazing flowers!
I loved the way this arch turned out! So pretty right!? Loving the hanging amaranthus!!
The DIY can be clearly seen by these adorable mason jars the bride provided for her centerpieces!
Their wedding cake was so cute with the burlap boarder and “K” topper. Only a couple of blooms were needed to tie it all together!
Once again, Congratulations to the happy couple! So thankful that I was able to be part of your special day!!
Not only were we excited to kick off Spring with purple, we were thrilled to be at one of our favorite venues, Los Willows in Fallbrook, Ca. This gorgeous and GINORMOUS bridal bouquet had dahlias, French tulips, orchids, stock, hyacinth and … Continue reading
Did you attend Seven Stem’s Bridal Tea Party, in March? Well, in case you missed our lovely event, check out the pictures that the sweet and talented Megan Young, of Megan Young Graphic Designs & Photography, took of our special event at Salt Creek Grille in Dana Point.
Aside from the large arch to welcome our beautiful brides, were these cute little flower balls on wood pillars built by one of our good friends. Thanks Max!
Sweet and Saucy Shop attended our Tea Party and brought tons of their lovely work to display and treats to munch on! YUM!!
An overflowing arrangement was placed in the corner of the room to jazz it up! The orange blossom smelled out of this world!
One of my favorite pieces I made was this floral spray for the fireplace mantle. It’s so pretty and overflowing!
Looking for something to add that vintage touch to your wedding or event? Wine barrels? Trunks? Kristin from ReUp Designs & Events has just want you need! She brought some of her awesome finds to our little event that just set the tone!
Tea cups make for a lovely and simple centerpiece, wouldn’t you agree?? And who doesn’t just LOVE garden roses? These pink ones were incredible!!
TREATS!! Thank you Cassy, from Celebratory Treats! Gluten free never tasted so good.
A different way to show off your flowers, we thought this cake stand was so adorable and had to incorporate it somewhere. The treat table was a perfect fit!
The boys from Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler really hit it from head to toe! They looked so cute in their vests too!
These gorgeous girls from Morgan Scott Boutique really added that special touch to our tea party with their handmade headpieces. We had the pleasure of wearing a couple of their beautiful work during the event!
I Love the way this little mason jar transformed the cocktail area! Those colors just really popped!!
We served two different blends of tea, decaf and regular, which were a big hit! As I was constantly having to run back to the kitchen and make more. It was definitely yummy! I highly recommend TEAVANA in the Mission Viejo mall.
If you attended, then you got one of our adorable party favors! Which also has a coupon that you can use for on your next event or wedding!
We would like to sincerely thank everyone who was involved and helped make this Bridal Tea Party a ginormous success!! We could not have done it with out you all!!
Michelle and Marisa
Here are the pictures from our latest photo shoot in case you missed the posts on our Facebook! Marisa and I had that “creative itch”, and what better way to do that, then re-create a whole wedding…. for fun! So we went to work brainstorming and getting crafty with wood pallets and, voila’! ENJOY!! ( We certainly did!)
The arch Marisa built and stained turned out better than I could have ever have imagined it! She is SO crafty and I am SO thankful to have her has my partner…in crime ;)!
Thanks to the lovely and TALENTED Megan Young of Megan Young Graphic Design & Photography, we were able to have her work with us and be a major part of our photo shoot! She is so great to work with and I can’t wait until our next project!
We wanted to keep this project very organic and chose flowers that were very earthy. Using flowers such as Kale, air plants, acacia, hydrangea with roses and Spanish moss, I think we accomplished it beautifully!
The bridal bouquet is a combination of all the lovely flowers we used. Adding in succulents to keep with the organic theme. Using lace to wrap, I think this might be one of my favorites, I’ve ever made! It was just so sweet and smelled amazzzzzzing!!
Every groom needs to match his bride, so I decided to give our imaginary groom plenty of options to choose from. I just love how these came out! How awesome is the mint in there!?
Its come to my attention that flower crowns are becoming an up and trendy thing for some brides, so with this opportunity to do whatever I wanted, I decided to make one and model it for you personally… HAHA!
And no wedding is complete without a centerpiece to place at all your tables for your lovely guests, to finish it off we created a beautiful arrangement in an awesome tin container. Did I mention how lovely everything smelled?!
Finally, if you happen to be in the area, Dana Point CA, March 23rd from 3-6pm we will be hosting a Bridal Tea Party to show off more of our lovely work as well as other local vendors. If you are looking for something fun and unique to add to your special day come check out what these wedding professionals have to offer!!
We’d love to meet and inspire you!
Purple. Purple. PURPLE!!!
It seems that 2012 was all about the color purple and weddings all over were blowing it up!
Here are a few of our favorites from last year.
This bride loved purple and let us incorporate shades of maroon and fuchsia to really add a great contrast with the purple Orchids and lavender roses. I absolutely LOVE all the purple orchids in this wedding!! A beautiful bouquet for a GORGEOUS bride!!
Have I told you I love orchids? These purple mokara orchids were incredible! I want to scream with joy when I look at these boutonnieres!!
An elegant and eye-catching arrangement for the check in table. The purple hydrangea was insane! Love the dusty miller and curly willow.
For another purple wedding of ours, we got to incorporate the blue tones. Adding peacock feathers to the mix for that cherry on top effect!
The purple, which look like a bright blue, anemone’s are one of my favorites and really popped in these bouquets!
We incorporated maroon in this wedding. To help save on cost, because we all have a budget, (and I probably shouldn’t be telling you, oops) we substituted maroon carnations (Yeah, I said it. Carnations.) for a few dahlia’s and BOOM you still have a beautiful centerpiece and nobody knows, except you. So hush! Haha
With the weather finally cooling down around here its beginning to feel like Fall!! I absolutely love this time of year!! The leaves are changing, it’s getting cold and I can finally wear my Ugg boots, scarfs and jackets! Hot cocoa by … Continue reading
