Orchids, Moss, and Succulents

Jim and I loved putting these organic arrangements together for one of our favorite clients! We filled this huge metallic bowl full of white orchids, various succulents, pussy willow, stones, mushrooms, and of course...mood moss!

By the television on the porch, we added a pop of yellow with grouping of Forsythia.

On the mantle, we placed clusters of orchids, moss, and curly willow inside of the tall hurricane vases.

I love these candle holders on her dining room table!  We placed a taupe candle inside of them with clumps of mood moss at the base.

For the entryway, we created these tall organic arrangements inside mercury glass containers.

Carlie's Pink Sweet 16

Carlie's Sweet 16 Party took place at Hillwood Country Club.  For the entrance, her invitation was enlarged and put on display.  Can you tell already that this is going to be a fun party?!?

Here is the entrance to the party with a little pink, a little feather, and a lot of flair!

The team at Tech Works did a great job hanging the big pink paper lanterns and lighting up the ballroom to the hottest pink possible. Party Animals provided the awesome balloons that spelled out "Carlie" and the numbers "16".

Isn't this cake by Dessert Designs cute?  I wish I could have had a bite...yum!

Liberty Party Rental provided all of the fun lounge furniture for the teens to hang out on.

I love the white feathers on top of the flash of hot pink water in the vase.  Everything glowed when the candles were lit and lights dimmed.

These are the fun gifts the birthday girl gave to her guests: a picture frame with a key-chain (perfect for all of those new drivers!)

In the far left you can see a big "16" which stood as the background for the photobooth area.  Now the teens have a picture to put in their frame that Carlie gave them.

I hope that you had the best Sweet 16 Carlie!!  Happy Birthday!

Pinks at the Frist

Kathleen got married at the beautiful First Lutheran Church downtown. We made an arch of flowers to frame the red doors.  It truly was a knockout!

Her reception took place at the Frist Art Museum which is conveniently located next to the church.

Two large arrangements in urns greeted guests as they arrived.

I loved all of the lounge seating that gave the Frist an intimate and cosy atmosphere.

We created chandeliers made out of hand strung dendrobian orchids.  They were beautiful!

Now here are some pictures as the scene transitioned to nighttime.  Lighting makes such a difference!

We placed a large urn of rose petals for guests to grab and toss as the bride and groom made their grand exit at the end of the night.

Neutrals and Branches at Belmont University

Jessie's bouquet was made of various roses, peonies, ranunculus, and freesia.  We loved her bouquet so much that we wanted to show you two pictures of it!

 Her bridesmaids each carried a bouquet of roses and berries in shades of cream.

The sweet flower girl wore this little halo of spray roses, ranunculus buds, and variegated pitt.

The groom sported a boutonniere of berries, freesia, and pitt.

Here is one of the pin corsages we made for the grandmothers in the family.

The mother of the bride and the mother of the groom each carried a small nosegay of flowers.

The ceremony took place inside of Belmont's new and beautiful McWhorter Hall.

We decorated two of the front sconces with some of the biggest swags we have ever made!

This sign was so cute that I just had to share it with you!

Here is a look at the inside of McWhorter Hall where the ceremony took place.

We place our arbor at the front with branches and flowers all around it.

We added two more swags to the left and right of the altar.  They framed the bride and groom nicely!

 The reception took place across the way in the Inman building on the top floor.  There was even a balcony with a tremendous view of downtown.  What a great spot!

Here is one of our favorite looks for a high top table - a mossed julep with pretty flowers!

It looks like someone is a Bulldogs fan...  Love it!

We had three different looks for the table arrangements: a lantern, a tree, and a candelabra.

How cute are the bride and groom?!?  This made for such a great photo opp.

Congratulations Jessie and Bradley!
