Wedding designs

Pretty sweet! I’m excited to be participating in Weddings on the Waterfront in July.  Not sure how it all came about, but I stumbled into an pretty amazing creative group of people! I have to say that the creative energy in this group of vendors is pretty impressive!  I’m working with Rebecca at Pravda Events   and I love her style, creative approach and her vision!  Carna Lapping, of Very Important Events was my initial contact,  and it all just came about in a conversation regarding another mutual bride we are working with, and I should certainly thank Courtney for putting us in touch with each other.

I’ve been working on my floral vision for the event, I’ve started a board for the event at Pinterest.  Here is the link to the creative start to the project  I know it seems a little vague, but you know it’s a process that happens in my brain first..what else can I say 🙂 I’m a typical designer!

The vision starts with the most beautiful venue on the waterfront in Seattle. The view doesn’t get any better than this spot! The photo gallery has some pretty amazing pictures, which you can check out here:

Bell Harbor features 100,000 square feet of meeting and conference center space and they can accommodate up to 200 trade show booths. With their state-of-the-art technology, onsite planning team, award-winning cuisine,  Bell Harbor is an ideal space for 5 to 5,000 guests. In addition, Bell Harbor manages catering and events for World Trade Center Seattle and the Maritime Event Center.

The other thing I was very excited to learn it that my daughter photographer Alante Photography is one of the photography vendors for this WOW event. I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting the creative team at Alante yet, but I’m sure we will have a great time at the wedding at the Seattle Tennis Club!


Vintage Bottles












I’ve been scouring the internet looking for cute vintage bottles for an upcoming event.  Everyone has been asking me for them.  Well, the good news is..Syndicate has finally brought them out!  I’m happy to find them, I ordered 4 cases of them today.  So all of you local brides looking for vintage bottles, call me for a price quote, I’ll be happy to rent them to you for your next event, and they will also be for sale in the store!  I am so happy to not have to go hunting in thrift and antique stores just to collect a few bottles here and there, it was so time consuming.  The new vases come in 12 different styles and range in size from 5 to 10 inches tall.  They come in 24 assorted t0 a case, but I’ll be happy to sell what ever bottle count you need.

The Brides Bouquet, natural and organic in styling

This wedding has to go down as the quickest wedding we’ve ever planned! It was a tiny bit stressful for everyone, to have to plan it in just 4 days, but in the end it all came together beautifully!

I’ve always believed that everyone has a sense of style, and even if you think you don’t know what you want, When you see  ” IT” you know “IT”.  I think everyone is visual,  and that truly is the hardest part of my job.   I have to get the vision out of the bride  and into my brain. I heard that the flowers looked beautiful at the event, and that  The Act Theater which is a creative and cool venue, made it all perfect!

Manzanita tree centerpieces with crystals and orchids and hanging votives

Pretty busy this week with weddings, weddings and more weddings!  A 50th Anniversary party, a corporate luncheon, and no end to wedding season, as brides keep coming for consultations.  Ready for a little a day of rest and relaxation, and gear up for next weeks wedding.

Trying to find the time to launch my new website, but that just isn’t happening any time soon I guess.  I hope to be launching our new site before the holidays.  Stay tuned for the date….

A beautiful summery centerpiece

A lovely example of a bubble bowl done is summery flowers, roses, spray roses, stock, hydrangea, mock orange, berries.  Just perfect for the center of the table or a low coffee table.  I love summer! Flowers are everywhere! This centerpiece is around $150.00 but it is easy to customize our work to fit any budget.
