I heart purple!

Have I mentioned lately that purple is my favorite color?

...Ashley's lovely bridal sitting bouquet...

Cassie @ Heritage Gardens

Reds, oranges, yellows...Such a nice combination for a fall wedding! Cassie's bouquet consisted of tea and spray roses, gerberas, ranunculus, mini callas, and hypericum berries. And how cute are those flower girl halos? Every time I make those, I wish I had a daughter -- Even though both my boys enjoy trying them on, I don't make it a point to outfit them with floral halos on a regular basis! I know...they'll thank me for that someday. :)

Deer Valley Darling

With the season finally winding down, I suppose I should start posting photos again!
Callie was married on a gorgeous, breezy September day at the Deer Valley Empire Canyon Lodge. Enjoy!

Sundance Sweet

It was a beautiful day at Sundance when Brittany got married.
Lots of cream and blush pinks...roses, freesia, dendrobium orchids...our manzanita trees wrapped in custom-made chocolate brown taffeta bags... I look forward to seeing Brody Dezember's photos of the event -- Brittany is a stunner!

Thanks for the photos Michelle!

Sydney @ Highland Gardens

Sydney's reception was held at Highland Gardens. What a gorgeous little space!

Blue is often a tricky color to work with, especially when its meant to create such a prominent contrast in the decor. It think we played this one well, however. We kept things simple and it turned out lovely!

Thanks Sydney -- it was a pleasure!

Kimberly's Color

Kimberly wanted you think we delivered?

Big thanks to Opie for the photos. (except for the last three...but I didn't have to point that out, did I?)

Black and White

Mallory was a pure delight to work with! Her June wedding fell on the last day of school (I have so many weddings to catch up on!) and a few days before we moved. As a result, taking photos of her arrangements were pretty far down on my priority list, but I did manage to get a couple. Her bridal bouquet featured garden roses, Vendela roses, mini calla lilies, spider mums, and fern curls. She had two centerpiece designs -- White carnation pomanders sitting atop black wood candlesticks (not pictured), and small, ribbon-wrapped cylinders featuring tight masses of white spider mums. Too cute!!!

Mother's Day, Birthday Surprise!

Mother's Day weekend is always inevitably our busiest weekend of the year. I generally don't sleep for 48 (sometimes 72!) hours straight while we're prepping and designing for our clients that weekend, and then after all our deliveries are out and we've cleaned up our workspace, I usually spend the remainder of the holiday in a comatose state. This year was no exception. However, in addition to our weddings and Mother's Day special orders, we also had the opportunity to fulfill a unique request.

I was contacted by someone local looking for flowers for his wife's 40th birthday (which happened to fall on Mother's Day this year). Apparently she had said that while she didn't want him to get her any gifts, she did want her husband to bring her flowers (and was expecting a $15.00 grower's bunch from Costco). Luckily, he had other ideas.

I met Christian and his children on the sly and had a chance to tour their beautiful Holladay home. After being shown all of his wife's most-frequently used spaces of the home, I came up with a design for each space and arranged to deliver and install the florals while they were out of town celebrating her birthday. Saturday evening came and Jessica and I made their home our last stop of the day. We had arrangements for most areas of the home: The kitchen, dining room, office, bedroom, laundry room, living room, family room, bath, even the outdoor patio tables. It was pretty fantastic! (Although Jessica spent the entire time waiting to hear the sound of sirens in the distance...even though I'm fairly certain the neighbors had been told of our impending arrival) On Sunday, the birthday-girl arrived home from her restful weekend to be greeted by her clean, decorated home. I did get a follow-up from Christian on Monday who said her reaction was awesome and that it was exactly what he had had in mind. I'm so glad it all turned out! I took these photos in their backyard (while I would have loved to have shown you how great it all looked in their home, I'd never take photos of someone's personal space!) and of course ran out of memory card space half way through. So here's what I've got. Use your imagination. :)

Can you imagine a sweeter gift???
