More Lilacs

One of my long time clients asked me recently to create a large arrangement of lilacs for her. It's probably the largest arrangement I've made in quite some time and when we chose the vase, I didn't realize how big it was until it arrived. The arrangement has 12 stems of lilacs and was really tall. 
I always said I would make lilacs for myself to have in my home but still to this day it hasn't happened and it's been over 4 years. I'm always so grateful to my clients who continually come back to ask me to make them more floral arrangements for their home or to give as gifts

Bridal Bouquet with a Vintage Look

A client recently asked me if I could create a bouquet off of a photo of another clay artist's design. That's always hard because each clay artist has their own style and look. However she liked certain elements of that bouquet and I tried to incorporate them but also make it my own design.
She wanted eucharist flowers but instead of the traditional green centers she wanted them to be pink. She also wanted ivories, pinks and greens with the vines and different types of greens. The bouquet had ranunculus, bouvardia, vines, hydrangea, tulips, roses and succulents as well. This bouquet I didn't use any plastic filler, it was all clay! The bride was very happy with the outcome.

Bridal Shower Favors (White and Black Theme)

My cousin's daughter asked me a couple months ago if I could help her with a bridal shower she is throwing for her best friend. She wanted to do favors for a white and black themed shower. Crafty isn't her thing so we discussed ideas while I was visiting them back in April what would work. She really liked the idea of doing the flowers that would serve as decor but also gifts for the people attending the shower. 
We agreed upon anemones, roses, gardenias and ranunculus. I did a black favor tag to look like chalkboard material and printed the text in white. They came out so lovely. This would make great bridal shower or even wedding favors.

Anemone Bouquet and Boutonniere

My client, Marina, contacted me again after she received her anemone pillow and hair flower. She was so impressed with the two items that she decided to move forward with her bridal bouquet and boutonniere. We included sweet peas and stephanotis blossoms with pearls  and some green leaves to fill in the space between the anemones and give some added texture and dimension. We also did a matching boutonniere for her groom.
 I am always thankful when clients add on more items after they order initially and see what it looks like in person.

Lilacs going to Greece

My past bride and client, Georgia, contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I could make a bouquet of lilacs for her home. I had done her wedding flowers and favors a few years ago, so I was happy to hear from her again. She had fell in love with lilacs I had done for two industry friends. She wanted the flowers to be in the aqua blue Ball jar vase.

White and Black Wedding

My client via Etsy asked if I could make her a white and black anemone hair flower and she really liked my anemone ring pillow so she ordered both for her upcoming wedding. Anemone is one of those flowers that isn't always in season so have a clay version of the flower available is a great alternative. 
 I love the contrast between white and black, it's very sophisticated. I don't often get asked to do ring pillows but I do enjoy it when I get to make them.
