New Listings on Etsy...

 I have been working on getting up some new items in my Etsy store now that things have slowed down a bit with weddings. This first piece is all gardenias in a lovely teal mercury style glass vase with greenery. 

(Please feel free to click on the pictures, as they will take you to the actual listing in my Etsy store.)
 This piece is one of my favorites. I had a couple of these mini teacups and saucers in a heart shape motif. I decided to make my popular heirloom roses in mini sizes. Love the English garden feel to this sweet little floral arrangement.
 I love the look of single blooms in a glass vase. This one is a peachy pink heirloom rose with lush green leaves in a petite glass vase with faux water!
 Vibrant pink anemones are sure to brighten your day nestled in a vase titled, "LOVE".
I'm getting back into making some new cake flower designs. Succulents seem to be very popular these days and I finally had a chance to make one!

More flower designs coming soon. Great for holiday gift giving or special occasions!

Winter inspired bouquet

A few months ago, a client asked me if I could create a bouquet of silver brunia, silver succulents, ivory ranunculus and Dusty Miller leaves. I was really excited about how this petite bridal bouquet turned out. It's the first time I'd made a bouquet with silver brunia!  I love the winter like feeling this bouquet exudes with all the silver and light green accents contrasted against the creamy ivory.
The bride loved the bouquet so much she asked me to create a matching succulent hair flower!

Vintage inspired bouquet

A bride contacted me last week to see if I could create her wedding bouquet. Her wedding date is this month. She has been a fan of my work for a while and she asked if it wouldn't be too late for her to order a custom bouquet. She sent me several images but not one that she particularly fell in love with. She also gave me several flowers that she loves. So I took all her images, flowers and comments and tried to create something she'd love. She wanted muted pastels and also wanted a rainbow of colors with ivory accents since her dress is ivory.
I think I pulled the bouquet apart a couple of times until I finally got it to look the way I wanted. I went with coral garden roses, ivory heirloom roses, gardenias, purple stock, lily of the valley, dogwood, greenish blue hydrangeas, light yellow ranunculus and light pink peony buds with Dusty Miller leaves. 
The groom's boutonniere is an ivory heirloom rose with Dusty Miller leaves. Best wishes to Brittany and her fiance!

Flowers that have special meaning...

While I don't want to spoil the surprise for my client, who plans to give these flowers to a loved one soon, I just wanted to share the images I took yesterday of the finished flowers. I will share the back story behind it in a few more weeks...

Mini Teapot and Teacup Ensemble

 One of my repeat customers, had purchased a mini teapot and teacup ensemble for her mother for Mother's Day. A friend of her's saw it and fell in love with the idea. So my client asked if I could make another set for her friend to give for Christmas. This time she requested daffodils, purple irises and pink roses.  I just love how they turned out!
