This year we were invited to be one of the decorators for the Easter celebration at the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis. How fun!……And a bit chaotic! Upon arrival at 8:00 a.m on Saturday. I was quickly introduced to several of the decorating coordinators, given a general ideas of what I was supposed to design, and the base for these designs. As you can see,my assignment was to design two large wreaths for the Narthex, which would be the first thing people would see as they enter the church with baskets wired to them, filled with green plants and embellished with two orchid plants. Whoa! No pressure there!Read More»
It seems when things are busy, taking the time to post regularly doesn’t happen as it should! Last week we were at the Como Park Conservatory Showcase in St. Paul, MN. It has always been one of my favorite places to hang out, but was even more beautiful as daylight turned to evening and the paths were lit by a soft, subtle glow. So tranquil. We were near Laurie Leigh Harpist so I actually felt like I was being embraced by a piece of heaven.
Despite having to borrow my neighbor’s camera (mine died!) I did manage to get some good photos of our bouquets. For this event we created viniettes of different themes, styles and colors.
I will post more pics soon as I have time to do a respectable posting.
This was one of my favorite bouquet of the 2011 season. With a bit of melancholy I think about the season of weddings and warm weather! Although the March weddings weren’t quite as warm!! I adore the Holiday season but I am already excitedly anticipating and working on next seasons weddings.
It has been an unseasonably warm fall and winter here in MN, but snow has fallen for the second time and the cold temps have moved in, so I thought it would be nice to send a little summer bouquet your way in the following photo to give hope that warmer days will be back (hopefully sooner than later.) Enjoy!Read More»
Finally having a chance to go through and post the photographer”s images. They actually do justice (unlike my own) to the awesome bride and groom-Lisa and Mike, the gorgeous flowers, and the fantastic venue-Rush Creek Golf Course in Maple Grove, MN . Kudos to Bruce Challgren of Photopixels for the fantastic photos!Read More»
