A Backyard Wedding Bash - Kelly and Pat

I had the pleasure of decorating and providing co-ordinator services for Pat and Kelly's backyard wedding bash this August. These two sure know how to throw a party! With a gorgeous white tent as the backdrop, their backyard was transformed into a wedding that fit their personalities to a tee. Relaxed, easy-going and FUN (I hear a pool party ended the late-night festivities!). Simple baby's-breath arrangements and bouquets for the bridesmaids were a soft accent to the burlap bunting and table runners. Pops of white lace and vintage doilies added the romance factor. It was truly an easy job to work for such a kind, grateful couple. Knowing them first as friends, and now as clients, I can't wait to see what will come next for them. 

I would be remiss not to thank my dearest and nearest Brittany and Monika for helping me. Britt by day was my amazing assistant, and by night the life of the party. And Mon, for taking me on as her second child for the weekend! XO.

Crushing On

This month, I am crushing on citrus fruit flower arrangements. I love the idea of mixing something unexpected, like oranges, into fresh flowers. The bright natural hue of oranges, and their leafy counterparts make them ideal for a surprising array of bouquets. Paired with bold pinks, oranges and corals, oranges can create a beautiful rustic-chic look. While they look classic and understated with white blooms and greenery. They are also an inexpensive way to fill in those empty gaps, and create dimension (they look amazing drooping over the edge of your vessel!). So what do you think, will you be mixing fruits and florals?
