My Custom Anemones and Engage!10 The Breakers!

So if you recall last week, I blogged about a special project I was working on where I made 235 anemones in pink and white. Well, I can finally share some final photos from the event that they were used for.

To give you some back story, the associate catering director of The Breakers resort called me and said she was interested in using my flowers for the upcoming Engage!10 Wedding Summit at the resort. Looking at my schedule I called her back and asked what she wanted in terms of the flower and declined. I talked to my husband who told me to find a way to make it happen and that this was a great opportunity that I couldn't pass up. So I called her back that night and agreed to do it. I had 3 days to complete 225 anemones that were at least 4.25" in diameter. Let me just say that there were several moments where I thought I wouldn't get it all done and maybe I should throw in the towel. But my husband helped clear my plate of all mommy duties which helped me to focus on all those flowers.

So thankful that Abby Larson is on it when it comes to providing the latest details on events such as Engage!10!I'm so very thankful to Kym Bichon at The Breakers for finding me in the Fall 2010 issue of Inside Weddings magazine and for ultimately asking me to do this. Most of all for believing that I could make it happen in less than a week's time! Just so you know these lovely lunch boxes were served during Sylvia Weinstock's presentation on her amazing sugar flowers. Couldn't be more perfect than that!
