Happy Saturday everyone!
First of all...I'd like to thank you all for your support and kind words...
This blog hit 14000 pageviews today!!!
I thought for this reason I have to post something new!!
The power of colors...I love many color combinations and in the wedding industry I get to create flowers to match the Bride-to-be's fabulous wedding color scheme! So much fun to see the hundreds of flowers in different colors that complements a theme! But this week I put together an assortment of blooms in a mixture of colors...I was wondering how it would look as a whole...To my surprise...It looks fabulous!!!
May these colorful little blooms adds smiles to you day!

I just love this color palette...So rich looking!
Sumptuous blend of turquoise, cobalt blue, lime green, purple and a touch of gold...
I created a collection of paper flowers using this color scheme:
Are you planning a wedding or a dinner party?
These paper flowers add elegance also as napkin rings, gift wrapping...Oh! How beautiful those blooms would look as gift bows on wedding or dinner party favors!

In the last couple of months I had the pleasure to put together custom orders for fantastic clients!
One of them consisted of mounting flowers on a round (6") styrofoam base to use the arrangement as a cake topper! I also had to make extra flowers to be mount on the cake to create a cascade effect!
All of this in the rich hues of dark purple, deep red, eggplant and chartreuse green!
The final product is spectacular! The lovely bride share with me a photo of the cake....Im speechless!
Another paper flower request I got was consisting at cutting petal shapes in the paper I had printed the client's parents wedding anniversary vows! Making these flowers had a special meaning...a true celebration of love! So I made 3 roses that I distressed the edge of the petals with red ink and I made 3 red peonies that represent the 3 children. What a beautiful and thoughtful gift idea...You cannot make it more personal!
A few more orders are in the making...Stay tuned for updates and pictures!

I like to think that I take good photographs of my blooms...but a friend of mine (the wonderful Penny from Keepsake Bow) gave me the idea to use beverage containers to take photos of my flowers...
I'm a coffee lover...But I have to say...
I do enjoy a nice martini by the end of a long day!
Before you view these photos...be aware...you might get thirsty!!!
All flowers are available to purchase in my online "Garden"
