The Hermitage Gala

Here are some pictures of the Hermitage Gala event at the beautiful Belle Meade Country Club.  Look closely at the arrangements, and you will see that we have incorporated apples, limes, and grapes to all of the arrangements.


One of my favorite part of the club is decorating all of the mantles.

A beautiful apple green damask linen was used on the tables provided by Connie Duglin Linen.

The club is one of the few venues that allows you to use tapers.  Therefore, we took the opportunity!  It gives the table an added sense of grandeur.

A Spring Party

Here is a look at the flowers Jim and I created for a Patron's Party.  The event was held in a beautiful home in Nashville.  We used colorful spring flowers for all of the arrangements.

Easter at West End Community

Easter called for lilies, and Jim responded in abundance!  Look at the beautiful arrangement and cross that Jim created for his church's Easter Sunday.

Easter Weekend Wedding

Nicole was married on Saturday at Otter Creek Church of Christ.  She chose to use traditional creams in the church.  Below is her bouquet with her mother's veil wrapped around the stems.


A tussy mussy, or nosegay, is a small bouquet that most mothers want to carry instead of wearing the traditional pin corsage.

Below is a picture of the groom's boutonniere made with Stephanotis and Italian Ruscus.

Here is the guest book table where we displayed all of the personal flowers for the wedding.

Here are pew markers that mark the center aisle with a ribbon blocking the aisle off for the wedding party.

Here is a close up view of the pew marker.  It is filled with various roses and cream lisianthus.

Jim made a large moss cross to hang above the baptistry.  It looked so beautiful at night with all of the lights shining on it.

Here is a close up view of the side altar arrangements.  We love the mossed iron containers with white hydrangeas, roses, and cherry blossom branches.

Below the mossed cross, we filled the baptistry ledge with flowers and pillar candles.

Here is a detail of the baptistry ledge.

The reception was at Brentwood Country Club.  Here are the wreaths that marked the front doors.  I love the combination of cream and green.  The beautiful Sahara Rose is one of my favorites!  It is the large antique colored rose.

The reception was filled with the bride's favorite flower: the blue hydrangea.

Here is a shot of the cute name tags that have a pearl with iridescent ribbon attached.

Here is a large arrangement that was placed in the middle of the name cards.

Each table was labeled with a place that the couple had visited together, then pictures of them at that location were placed on the table for guests to look at.  

A hidden treasure for guests was inside each picture that was displayed on the tables.  Inside, the bride wrote out memories from the picture such as why it was taken or what makes the picture special.

Here is a small arrangement that was placed in the women's restroom.  It is always important to have flowers for the women to enjoy as they re-apply their lipstick! 

I love this new trend of placing family pictures at various places at a reception.  Each picture was labeled with a card telling who was in the picture and when it was taken.

This was a very fun table for an Easter weekend wedding!  It was filled with Easter treats and candy for guests to enjoy and take when they left.

Marcia is the beautiful coordinator that we work with often.  She is the one who put this cute candy table together for the bride and groom.
