Happy Day!

A beautiful bouquet for a beautiful, happy bride! I love all these colors. They are so gorgeous and cheerful together!

The butterfly represents a sweet friend of the bride's who passed away when they were children.

December Wedding

We loved the greenery used in this wedding. It was all on the tables with a mix of bottles, vases with candles, along with decorating the alter where the couple was married. The flowers were with the bride as well as the bridesmaids and there were accents of them on the tables as well. It looked very beautiful with the white, blue and green. We used bay leaves, silver dollar eucalyptus, seeded eucalyptus, rosemary and olive leaves to give different textures and smells. It was lovely.

Japanese Funeral

These flowers were done for a friend of ours who's father in law had passed away.  We love to do funeral flowers and feel honored to help celebrate the life of a loved one.
This all white arrangement was from his wife.  We used China Chrysanthemums, avalanche roses, salal, casablanca lilies, white gladiolas, tree fern and white, fragrant stock.  

This one was from the grandchildren: sunflowers, eucalyptus, liatris, red dahlias, orange asiatic lilies, yellow solidago, orange alstromeria, green button mums and purple delphiniums.  We loved the happy colors of this one and were told he was a very involved grandfather. 

These were the arrangements that went on either side of the casket on podiums.  They have white gladiolas, stock, china mums, salal, button mums and commodore palm.

This elegant arrangement was from his children: eucalyptus, star gazer lilies, pink spray roses, white veronica, avalanche roses, stock and lavender lisianthus.

This was his casket spray: white gladiolas, white snap dragons, tree fern, stock, commodore palm and red Black Magic roses.

These are some centerpieces I did for a USC Trojan graduate; hence, the colors of red and gold! I thought they turned out pretty great considering! Not too expensive, but still nice.

I used yellow roses, red carnations, yellow and red alstromeria with some salal leaves.  I also used the greenery from the alstromeria and the roses. All tucked away in a gold, plastic footed bowl.

Juliann and Ryan

We LOVED these flowers! The orange roses (milva and cherry brandy) with cream and sahara roses look so nice with the succulents, orange freesias, dusty miller and orange ranunucluas.  We tied the stems with burlap and rafia and think it looks so pretty!

For the groom, we used the same type of succulent and added some seeded eucalyptus.

Ali and Matt....

Another beautiful summer wedding in August....
This wedding we actually helped plan and run the show for the family.  We put out the food, hired help to serve and bus tables as well as do the flowers and clean up. 

 Some of the centerpieces getting ready to be filled with cream and peach roses, seeded eucalyptus, queen anne's lace, some alstrameria and some dahlias.

 A beautiful orange/peach dahlia accents the antique birdcage on the dessert table.
 The brides bouquet with orange garden roses, white and pink alstrameria, cream spray roses, dahlias and seeded eucalyptus.
 The darling dessert table.....
 A single jar on each of the bistro tables.  The larger round tables had three jars of varying sizes plus a picture of the couple.
 We had some hanging jars guiding the guests into the reception which was held in the back yard.
 An array of bottled sodas in a galvanized ice bucket.  There was also a taco bar! So yummy!
The beautiful, happy couple.  They were so pleased how everything turned out.

Haskell Wedding

These flowers were soooo gorgeous! We were very pleased how everything turned out!

 These are the centerpieces that were in a square glass vase about 5" cubed.  They are Cool water and Pacific Blue roses with some bright pink rhapsody roses, purple lisianthus, white lisianthus, light purple lisianthus and different shades of purple to pink hydrangea.  They look so lush and rich!
 This is the bride's bouquet with some of the same flowers as above, but with some freesias and some white cymbidium orchids.  We always try to out something delightful smelling in the bouquet.  Flowers should not only look pretty, but smell pretty, too.

 These were two large arrangements in silver orchid pots that were the sides to where they got married on the beautiful marble staircase at the courthouse.
The cake flowers were some listed above, plus the orchid.  When the groom proposed, he had the ring in an orchid on the bride's dinner plate.  Sweet, huh?
