4th of July Wedding!

I know, I know…it’s January! But, I have a ton of July brides contacting me right now and I’ve been thinking about this Colorful ~ Shoreline ~ Bohemian wedding at Madison Beach Hotel. (where I am a preferred florist)

Megan and Mike were not only one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever worked with, they were the LUCKIEST!  I know what you’re thinking, because they got to work with me, right?  HAHA….NOPE!  It was because there was a crazy storm the night the Madison CT fireworks were scheduled for and had gotten rescheduled…TWICE…for July 6th…Megan and Mike’s wedding night!!!! Talk about the best seat in the house as the fireworks let off from a barge in Long Island Sound right outside the Hotel.

New Haven Lawn Club Tasting

As the preferred florist for New Haven Lawn Club, I was honored to be invited by Christine and John to take part in their tasting day for 14 of their more recent couples.  It was a great day spent with all the couples, their families,  and other great featured vendors.

Every table was designed according to each couple’s style and color theme.  It was a challenge to design 14 different table centerpieces that were all so different.  The lighting really made the centerpieces come alive!

This is just a teaser!  I really want to wait for the professional pics that were taken by the amazing Aurora Photography!  Thank you Aurora, Cate, and Morgen!  What a bunch of down to earth, great gals!

I LOVES THEM!

Aurora posted some teaser shots for me that you can view on her facebook gallery.

New Bridal Shower Concept

My sister-in-law was getting married and she donned me “Wedding Planner, Floral Designer and (lucky me) Matron of Honor”  WOW!  What a task!  I had a blast.

For her bridal shower I wanted to do something totally different.  She’s young, stylish, popular….so the Sunday afternoon, long, drawn out shower wasn’t gonna cut it!

I planned a COCKTAIL PARTY!  It was SO much fun that I would definitely recommend everyone plan a shower this way.  Her young friends had fun and even the older gals loved getting out of the house on a Saturday night.  It’s even a little cheaper because you serve hors d oeuvres and make your own cocktails!

I had all of the bridesmaids make a cocktail that were different colors, alcohols and flavors, then we chose hors d oeuvres that coordinated with each drink.  We displayed the pairs on their own table with about a dozen drinks already poured into the fun shaped glasses for a great visual affect.

I chose long banquet tables, for a relaxing, casual setting.  The centerpieces were simple table scapes and every table was a bit different.  I took advantage of the fact that the party was at night and used a ton of candles, but mixed it up with bright pink Gerbera Daisies and limes!  I thought of every different combo you could design and ran with it: floating Gerbers, arranged Gerbers, floating lime slices, submerged whole limes, and then mixed the 2 together.  I used all different types of vases for the flowers and the candles and adorned the candle holders with funky ribbon.

I can go on and on about the details…..but the pictures say it best!  My sister, the photographer, took all the pics for me!

Remember that you can click on the picture for a larger view.  Cheers!
