I am bit behind schedule here -my gardenias are selling out so I needed to make some..
I am working on a lovely order from Celeste for her wedding,her colors are tones of yellow.
I tried out one usher's boutonierre and here is what I created a buttercup colored yellow rose with a single crystal encrusted stephanotis.The stem has a gold thread wound on it to create a nice dimension.I am wondering if I should use the brighter yellow or the lighter yellow...
Lot or order to cover.Hope the memorial day weekend was great! I got back some picture from Christi's wedding (anemone bouquet) and am very happy to see the pictures,so more pictures of another great couple coming up so stay tuned!
I have been many a times requested to make the gardenias again and again and the picture my clients sent me is this one
Now here are the flower made for Ceci.The flower look absolutely delightful! there is 4 inch gardenias and one 3 inch one.I didn't get enough time to make the third layer of the dummy cake but the flower would just look even more lovelier on mor tiers!!!
I was particularly fascinated by a woodland themed / birds wedding.I always wanted to make a small boutonniere with a bird in it and when I chanced upon this super cute bird I just had to buy it! I had stashed it for a long time and so I took break from my orders and just on the spur made this boutonniere for me to admire :-) then I thought I should just list it on etsy as my etsy is sadly lacking any items to buy. It will be sad day to part with this one :-)
Big day today to get everything of packing and shipping orders.Just thought I should post the awesome boutonniere for Christi.I has an anemone and a sweet pea and a tendril! Anemones are not hardy to be used as boutonnieres so generally florists ask the bride to go for an artificial anemone boutonniere - clay anemone are a very good option and is a great keepsake of the special day.
Dixie Pixel is photographic company located in TN…awesome pictures taken by them for Jude's wedding was featured in March.Well by a stroke of luck I chanced upon the page of the wedding via DixiePixel and literally was rooted to my seat to see the flowers I made starring :-) Loved the bridesmaids flowers turned out! The wedding was mentioned on the Snippet and Ink blog too :-)
I just finished up the pink anemone bouquet for Christi in clay,it islooking very beautiful.The bouquet has different shades of pink anemones and pink sweet peas as filer just as the bouquet Christi had requested,it is cinched with a black velvet ribbon which adds a real touch of elegance.I found a peice of heirloom lace and I just thought I should be adding that too!!
Anemones are very delicate flowers and have to be shipped in from Holland and will burn a big hole in pocket,clay bouquets are a cost effective option and of course will be a hierloom to pass down of you special day.
