As you can tell by a few weddings on my website, I LOVE feathers!!!!
I was hired for a Bar Mitzvah to create tall Purple Ostrich Feather centerpieces. I was so excited when I got the call because I love making these centerpieces, they are so much fun. This was the first time I had used the purple color and they came in vibrant, to say the least! Loves them!
I arranged them to sit atop a tall tower vase (eiffel tower vase) filled with white water beads for a little more flair!
This event took place at Cascade in Hamden. Their chandeliers are to die for! A very classic place to have any special event.
These centerpieces and any other color ostrich feather centerpiece available for rental!

This wedding chuppah is a rental item. It is best used for outdoor where it can be decorated with flowering branches for that natural feel. Don’t let the picture fool you, it was taken with a fish eye lens by Danny Kash! You can see more photos from this wedding on our website in Tedessa and Jeff’s Gallery.
This ceremony chuppah is a rental item that can be used indoor or outdoor. It can be covered with any color fabric and decorated how you like.
One thing I love about having a storefront is that I get to decorate my front window! It’s something I always loved to do and would volunteer for that task at every flower shop I ever worked at. My secret goal is to one day design a window for Macy’s. Wouldn’t that be so cool?
Anyway, this winter was so busy for me that I didn’t have much time allotted for my window, so I went simple. Sometimes simple is best. It took me maybe 2 hours, at the most. Everything I used I already had at the shop. I had an idea of how I wanted it to look, wintery, not holiday-ish! I designed the main centerpiece and explained my vision to my best assistant ever, Sarah, and she amazed me! She knew exactly what I had envisioned……such a reversal since I am always the one to figure out the visions! She did such a great job and even added her own little touches. I’m in love with it so much, I’m keeping it up until the end of February…no need to rush it!
Having a winter wedding??? We have lots of ideas!! Tall vases filled with fake snow and birch branches can be used as centerpieces or to flank your ceremony aisle, or even just to fill a corner within your venue. They can be rented for a nominal fee.
Well, the enchanted forest wedding theme is getting pretty popular, and I have to say, I love it! I must have been a fairy (probably a floral fairy) in a past life because I am so drawn to this theme and keep thinking of new things to add to it all the time! Since I have many brides contacting me with this theme, I wanted to come up with a really unique enchanted forest tree that does not look like the ever so played out manzanita trees (although, I still love using them). My tree is the best, if I do say so myself! For cost-cutting purposes, I rent these trees out. They are still a bit pricey, but they are well worth it! I add things to it all the time. The tree looks great with moss balls, candles, flower heads added to the table around the base of the tree. Along with nestling moss and fresh flowers into the trunk, I hang fantasy flowers and colorful votives from the branches. You can add butterflies and dragonflies – fantasy or real-looking. It’s a forest, anything goes!!
Since most brides can not afford to put trees on every table, I have designed 2 shorter enchanted forest themed centerpieces for the other tables. I think it looks better to have a handful of these impressive trees scattered throughout the room mixing them with lower styles in the same theme. Gives you the feel you are in a forest, enchanted, of course!
As you can see there are many designs I can come up with to make your enchanted forest theme wedding be very unique! The last picture can be a very simple guest table centerpiece or we ca use a smaller bowl and have them on your bistro tables for cocktail hour to really carry your theme throughout your entire event.
Don’t you just love these! Of course, this is a just a sampling of all the “paper” items for rent or for SALE. Whether your event takes place in the summer or is asian influenced, whether your theme is colorfully bright or elegantly gold, we have what you’re looking for. The fans, parasols and lanterns come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, designs and what’s even better is that they can all be coordinated with each other and a variety of votive holders, hanging candle holders and petite vases! Lanterns look great hanging in a tent. Fans are a great to give to your guests at your outdoor, summer wedding. Have your Bridesmaids hold parasols in your wedding photos! You can also make a centerpiece out of the parasols if you order them on a wooden stand. Add a floral wreath and it’s perfect for even a bridal shower! Most lanterns can be lit, too. We are an exclusive retailer of this company and their products have been featured in Martha Stewart and local bridal magazines. We love this collection, the combinations are endless!
Check out some formal wedding pics where the bridal party held parasols!
This faux stone fountain is a nifty addition to your garden wedding or use it as a wishing well and keep all the loot for your honeymoon! People ask if it really works, well YES, it really works! It is electric and the water shoots out the top and trickles down the tiers. Looks fabulous spruced up a bit with garlands and floating flowers or candles in the bottom tier.
These rustic metal plant stands are perfect for an outdoor or garden themed wedding……although I have used them for a very earthy and elegant themed wedding where the colors were brown, green, ivory and champagne! I use them to frame the ceremony location, on either side of the head table, or at the beginning of your aisle. They have some weight to them so they can take a very tall and big arrangement without being top heavy. I use them often at St. Clements Castle at the river side. The wind just howls through that location and these have no problem standing since the wind can move through them.
These garden wire urns are so versatile, I love them! You can line the top of the urn with any type of moss and then plop an arrangement in them. I usually design the arrangement in a nice inexpensive decorative container that fits into the urn so that you can take the arrangement with you at the end of the night, since the urns are coming back with me:) What is also unique about these urns is that they come off of their base! This way they can be tall for your ceremony and then can be shorter to sit on the floor in front of your head table or can be placed on another accent table at the reception.
We also have very cool boxwood balls that can be placed in the urns for a more sculpted garden feel.
