This particular couple was a referral from Paciic Coast Host on the Big Island! Thank you Stephanie! Stephanie is another wonderful wedding planner extraordinaire on the island of Hawaii. Her clients were from Connecticut/New York area. Very easy to work with which was awesome. They picked a pinkish orange hibiscus as their theme. They ordered the invitations first and decided to carry the hibiscus theme and the punchy fuschia pink and bright orange metallic colors to compliment their wedding reception.
These are just a couple of the pictures from Bob Brown of Eye Expression Photography. The sun had already set when he took these pictures, but they still look fantastic. Thanks Bob for always making my creations look stunning! The reception took place at the Mauna Lani Resort (www.maunalani.com). This is a great location for a beach wedding and outdoor reception on the Big Island. The wedding department staff is great to work with too! If you're looking for a wedding planner, check out Stephanie at www.pacificcoasthost.com and of course Bob for photography at www.eyeexpression.com!

This particular bride wanted an orange cymbidium orchid for her invitations. Not to mention she's getting married at the Fairmonth Orchid! So it seems befitting to have an orchid as her theme. For their reception, they want to go with matching favor boxes with both orange and yellow cymbidium orchids and plans to put hard kona candies inside for her guests. She's even looking at table cards!

These are just a few of the arrangements I'm planning to sell on the website. The vase arrangements will range from $40-150 to start. Remember, these are all handmade flowers, each petal made by ME! :)
I'm looking forward to this new adventure and I'm hoping it will give me an opportunity to share my love for ClayCraft by Deco with others. I'll update my website and blog when my creations are available for sale!

It's interesting to see how quickly the clay flowers are really taking off! Part of the reason these companies are finding me is through Virwanti International - a company who sells organic/eco-friendly packaging items. I bought from them over 3 years ago and then I did a photo shoot for my website and they saw what I did with one of their sinamay envelopes and asked if they could use the photo on their website and would promote DK Designs. Little did I know that business would come of it!
I don't know if I'll actually get the business, but it's nice to know that people are finding me and liking what they see! It's just really exciting to see the business grow in ways and directions I never imagined!

Kristy became fascinated with it and a friend of mine looked it up on Wikipedia for me and wrote me this...."Kristy, this flower embodies you in all your beauty and strength. You are so gorgeous, inside and out, with elegance that appears to be fragile but like the magnolia you are strong, unwavering and can endure anything." I really took it to heart and decided that it would perfect to represent the relationship that hector and I have. So this is why I love this flower so much and it would be great if we could carry it throughout the wedding.
