Summer time Bridal Shower!

What a wonderful time of year to do a bridal shower for a young Bride to be! The colors for the event were pale yellow and cream, however I found that adding some hues of peach and orange would greatly add to the excitement of summertime and the fun of this day. It was all so lovingly hosted at The Montecito Country Club.

I ordered Carmel Antike from Alexander Farms in Colombia, as I thought this would be a perfect combination with the South American Sahara roses, pale yellow and peach stock, and the delicate touch of dusty miller. All of theses would set on top of sliced oranges and lemons. 

The hostess choose to use Honey Provincial candles by Votivo (one of my favorite scents :))
I placed those on the table as well in their organza bags and filled with leftover rose petals. All napkin rings were from the hostesses own yummy collection!

The cake was made by Katie at Montecito Confections, one of Santa Barbara's finest bakers. 
I adorned the cake with some pale yellow California roses along with some South American Finesse Roses, and surrounded it with rose petals.

That is Jennifer, glowing over her beautiful day!

In addition to the flowers I created a wish tree (better yet a rose bush) for the guests to give their wishes for the bride and groom. I wrapped the pot in moss and and hand made all cards.

My new blog...hope to inspire!!

Today is the day that I decided to share my love for flowers and my love for creating art through flowers.  I feel like my work is an extension of me, all that I produce is from a place of joy!  There is a profound feeling of satisfaction that happens when you are able to do something you love for a living. As our lives are in a constant state of movement and decisions, I find that my release in life is viewing natures creation of beauty... flowers! My hope is to share this with you all!
