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.

Spring Flower Arrangement

 My wonderful client, Joyce asked me to create this piece for her best friend who's birthday was earlier this month. She wanted tulips, daffodils and gerbera daisies. She pretty much left the colors up to me but wanted it to be Spring inspired with pretty colors. I added some lily of the valley as well to this arrangement. Her friend received it last week and was so thrilled with the gift.

Custom Floral Arrangements

This year has been a year of many blessings. Not only have I received several wedding flower orders, but lately, I've been getting a lot of requests for home decor pieces. A Facebook admirer on my business page asked me several months ago to do single stem flowers and then she asked if I could just make a home decor piece with all her favorite tropical flowers that have special meaning to her. This arrangement has gardenias, pikake, plumerias and hibiscus. 
She also asked me to make some mini teapots of forget-me-nots for a friend as a going away present.
 It's been a great joy to do more home decor pieces and single stem flowers, as well as a challenge, but I enjoy a good challenge!

Gardenia Shoe Clips

I haven't made shoe clips before, but an Etsy client asked if I would try to make some. They are for a wedding she is attending this summer. I really like how these turned out.
Just thought I would share a couple of pictures of how they look. Who knows, maybe I'll consider offering them in the near future.
