Spring Time..... In Winter!?

This past weekend La Fleur created a spring like setting within the walls of the Rehearsal Hall down in snowy Sundance. Inside was bright and cheerful and outside was cold and wintry. Fun! I can't wait to see the professional shots of this wedding. Brooke had 10 bridesmaids and they all were decked out in different brightly colored dresses. Bouquets were made of red and orange ranunculus, & red, orange and hot pink roses. The ribbon wraps were aqua with longer ribbon tails. It all looked so amazing together.

We created a Chuppah out of birch logs, terracotta pots filled with moss & gorgeous sheer fabric. Each top branch had a cluster of queen anne's lace, roses, & hydrangea tied on with long ribbon knots. I love how the entire ceremony site looked. Very elegant, yet simple. A good contrast to the bright colors of the reception.

Brooke decided on long family style tables with glass cubes going down the middle. We did one cube of green hydrangea, one of orange tulips, one of red roses, one of pink roses, etc. Solid blocks of color. The rounds had taller branch style centerpieces with a mix of colors and flowers or a cluster of 3 brightly colored cubes.

This couple was the cutest and I had such a fun time working with both of them! Please watch for more images coming soon!

Sassy & Jordy

Oh what a lovely day in October. A bit chilly, but visually stunning! Sassy and Jordan really wanted a fall jewel tone floral wedding scheme, and I was happy to oblige. I used hydrangea in muddled tones of green, blue, purple and burgundy. Hydrangea is one of my all time favorite flowers to use in weddings, especially in the fall when it's at the height of perfection. The hydrangea was accented with black dahlias, orange coxcomb, flame mini callas, & an array of gorgeous roses. The ceremony was out on the patio overlooking the ski runs of Snowbird. We really needed to bundle up folks, it was a balmy 40 degrees. I just love how everything turned out. It's truly the best to design flowers for one of your best buds. Congrats Sassy & Jordan!!!!

Photography was done by the beautiful and talented Sydney Davis from Impressions by Syndey!!!

80th Birthday Bash!

I was asked by one of my favorite clients to create some beautiful centerpieces for a 80th Birthday Party at the Salt Lake Country Club. The birthday girl wanted old fashion roses in shades of pink and cream. I used gorgeous full and ruffled Esperance roses, along with Virginia & Charming Unique roses. Soft pale green Dusty Miller was tucked in throughout to give that vintage look. I found some tulle dotted with rhinestones and I softly draped it around and over the arrangement to give the illusion of an old fashioned hat with veil.

Young Artists

I was asked by Kimball Art Center to come up and teach a wreath making class with the young artists group. I jumped at the opportunity! I absolutely love teaching floral classes and especially to kids. The class ranged from about 10 year olds to Sophomores in high school. You should have seen what creations they come up with! I brought up loads of salal, seeded eucalyptus, juniper, cedar, peacock feathers, reindeer moss, & dried hydrangea. The wreaths looked so unique, yet all students had the exact same materials to work with. Next week they will be adding mixed media art to decorate the wreaths further. The wreaths will be hung in the gallery for all of November and will be up for sale! Awesome. Here are a few pics from the fun evening.

Sassy Sneak Peek

Can't wait to see all the professional images of Sassy's wedding. It's always a hard job being a bridesmaid and floral designer, but I made it work! So much fun up at Snowbird. The ceremony was a bit chilly, but so memorable.

I love the color yellow. It's so bright, happy & fun. I want to do more weddings with the color yellow! You wouldn't believe some of the gorgeous roses that come in the shade of yellow. I'm dying. Someone please get married and have me do your wedding in shades of yellow. Other yellow flowers that I enjoy working with....
