Holiday Bouquets - Boutonnieres

Since I now have my wonderful new flash, I can take pictures any time of the day. Granted natural lighting is best, but this new flash allows me to get really decent shots so I can post pictures and not have to wait for the sun to be shining. With winter and forecasted rain, good thing for this new flash! LOL... These are the final pieces of Ela & Kelby's order.

I managed to finish the boutonnieres to go along with the bouquets - 8 in total. The groom's boutonniere contains the cymbidium orchid, an orchid bud and a peony bud. The groomsmen is also a cymbidium orchid, but with tuberose. The fathers have a cup style rose with the cymbidium orchid.

You have no idea how glad I am to have this order complete. I still have a centerpiece arrangement to make for the client, but luckily I can ship that afterwards. I think this has to be the largest bridal bouquet order I had.
It's been a crazy and amazing year for me and I'm looking forward to another big year in 2009! I'm so very appreciative of all the opportunities I have been presented with and thank you to all my clients who trusted in me to create everlasting bridal bouquets and centerpieces as well as to all my wedding stationery clients, who allowed me to design beautiful wedding details for their wedding day!
It'll be interesting to see if the clay flowers take over the bulk of my business. The way things are shaping up for my bookings for 2009, it looks as though the clay flowers will be about 80% of my business, but normally the invitations come through when I least expect it.
