Kate Spade Birthday Party

I just love the theme of this 30th birthday party! So fun, girly and festive. The birthday girl loves Kate Spade so this party was filled with all things pink, gold, black and white. And you can't forget the glitter to liven things up! So cute. Of course, there was no shortage of vibrant pink blooms! I'm filing this idea away for the next time I'm throwing a girly party.

How amazing are these gold glittered champagne flutes? Cheers!

Capturing Nature's Beauty

Every time a take a photo of my work I am disappointed about how much beauty is lost between the live flowers and the camera lens. Color, texture, depth and scent - it is always so much more vivid in person!

I reached out to a sweet industry friend and incredibly talented photographer Leah Golter to do a one on one photography lesson. She is such a wonderful teacher! She came to my home and taught me everything I needed to know to be able to take gorgeous photos of my flowers in any light. I learned so much about how to capture the details and beauty of each individual bloom and the arrangement as a whole. So much has to do with perspective! All photos here were taken by me, with Leah's direction.

Ranunculus, the pink flower above and below, are a favorite flower of mine. Typically used as an accent flower, sometimes they open up just right and seal the show! I'm in love with their petal structure.

I love working with green viburnum. It is like a miniature version of hydrangea that flutters in the wind. So delicate!

These peach garden roses are so stunning!

I'm so excited to put my new skills into practice and bring you beautiful images of flowers going forward!

40 and Fabulous!

Birthdays are an occasion worth celebrating – especially ones that end in zero!

I was given full creative range on this event and had so much fun dreaming up the florals for this fabulous celebration. The color palette of hot pinks and bright oranges just screamed FUN!

My favorite component of the night was the birthday girl’s monogram done in pink and orange roses and framed in gold. It was the perfect focal point to complement a table of photos of the birthday girl through the years.


The birthday girl looking 40 and fabulous! 

Mini ice cream cones were passed out on the dance floor as she made a wish and blew out her candles.

It was a fun-filled night she won't soon forget!
