Sweet Sixteen!!!

Torie is turning 16, and one of our customers (Kim) ordered flowers for her. Not knowing what Torie liked, I emailed her mom (Jenny, another customer of ours) to find out. After a few emails back and forth, we decided to do something to go with her party theme, instead of her favorite colors of Purple and Pink. Wanting to do something young and fun, I put together 16 red roses, in a red vase and accented them with pearls. The party colors are Black and White with red accents.
Happy Birthday Torie. I hope you have a great day.

Alex and Jeff - a Hipp Affair

Alex and Jeff came to me two weeks before their wedding, wanting me to do their flowers. They were married in the the Historic Hippodrome State Theatre. Alex choose a non-traditional wedding dress of red, while Jeff wore a chocolate brown suit. For the bouquets, we did a mix of red, peach, and different pink roses, with a touch of peach hypericum.
To accent the Cinema Room they were using for their ceremony, we did two arrangements that sat on columns, and were later moved to help decorate the Art Gallery, where the reception was held.

When I went back Late Saturday afternoon to pick up the items
we had rented them (Votive holders, Peace Lilies, & Columns), I noticed a special personalized touch that they added to their reception...... Private Label Beer bottles. I just could not help snapping a picture of a few of them to add to this posting.

Keri and Branden

Keri & Branden were married on Saturday. Red and Black for the colors of the day. The large stage at Westside Baptist Church was adorned with columns topped by ferns. To include some red we added Carnations, in water tubes. The ferns were later transported to Savannah Grande for the reception. Keri and her attendants carried bouquets of red roses, handtied and wrapped with black ribbon.

Walking up the aisle, Keri passed 8 shorter columns, which held candles and arrangements of red roses.

Cakes by Jenny made this marvelous cake, which we provided red roses and spray roses to be used as the topper and between layers.

Kristen and Todd

I first met Kristen at one of the Jay's Bridal Wedding Expo where she was drawn to one of the sample centerpieces I had made. She and Todd were married on February 9, 2008 at The Baughman Center. She wanted to focus her colors on the rich red dresses the bridesmaids were going to wear, plus it was just before Valentine's Day. So ivory, red, and hot pink were the colors of the day. Kristen's bouquet was hand tied and featured roses, gerbera daisy, hydrangea, alstromeria, salal tips for greenery and a little bit of bling to add some sparkle. The bridesmaids bouquets hand similar flowers, but the opposite in color and were mainly ivory, with a touch of color, so they would stand out against their dresses.

Dwight's Fight

On June 30th, we sponsored Dwight's Fight centerpieces for their event at Plantation Hall. They were working with Green and Sandalwood as their colors. Since it was a Golf tournament as a fund raiser, we thought it would be cool to use Golf balls as part of the centerpiece. We used Cylinder vases (provided by A'vie), in which we put golf balls (provided by Haile Golf & Country Club) and green Dendrobium orchids glued to Curly willow to look like Flowering branches.
