Alexis' Bridal Shower

I had sooo much fun making these for Alexis' bridal shower last week! I cannot wait for her wedding! The flowers are going to be fabulous! She was ecstatic when she saw these!

Crowne Plaza Bridal Show Highlights

The blue vanda orchid shown here is an awesome true violet great for an exotic purple!
I added diamond pins to the center of these lavender roses and designed this bouquet with peonies, stock, ranunculus, Picasso callas, and ornamental raspberries! I love fruit with flowers, even if its not edible, it looks so cool!
Jeweled Brooches are still a great way to add dazzle and BLING!

This bouquet with lavender anemones, purple lisianthus, and purple/blue hydrangeas stole the show! I added purple jeweled velvet butterflies and an antique marcasite crystal brooch.

This bouquet is a sample of Brittany's bouquet for her September wedding. Let's hope the anemones come in!!! If not the purple vanda orchids above will be her substitute. I'm hoping for the best! Anemones are hugely popular, but available from Nov-April...with a few stragglers in the off months.
This bouquet is # 2 to steal the hearts of many girls. Some loved the orange and purple (which is HUGE right now), while others loved the fact that they wanted roses and stock in these exact colors.
A tall garden style centerpiece with dark blue/purple hydrangeas, lavender roses, white snapdragons, cream stock, and seeded eucalyptis on our silver stand (available for rent).

What a fabulous show we had yesterday! We met over 125 brides and it was wonderful seeing new faces, as well as some I can now call friends! I love how I become close enough to my brides that we share things like Christmas cards and pregnancy stories:) Let me show some photos from yesterdays events. The fashion show was awesome! It was great having the models carry my flowers down the runway!
