Shaun's and Andrea's Wedding



My nephew sure knows how to pick 'em!
I thought it might be a while before he settled down,
but once he met his new bride, there was no turning back!
Andrea is a doll, and such a flexible bride.
She knew what she wanted, but also knew that with seasonal 
flowers you may not get what you want.
We were hoping for peonies and ranunculus,
but when we weren't able to get ranunculas for the wedding,
Andrea was very gracious about it and put her trust in me!
She loved her bouquet, and I thought it turned out pretty, too.
Congratulations to such a great couple!
Love you both!

Lewis' and Kylee's Wedding

 LOVED, LOVED, LOVED! the way these flowers turned out!
Coral roses are beautiful, and I think calla lily bouquets are just sleek and classic!
I made a toss bouquet with the extra callas and roses.  I think it would have
made a gorgeous bridal bouquet, too.
Beautiful flowers for a beautiful bride.
I hope she and the groom enjoyed them.

Mother's Day 2014

What a wonderful excuse to do flowers!  Mother's Day!
I absolutely love white and lavender roses, so was glad I got to do an arrangement
with my two favorite color roses, and yellow roses just make me happy!
(The small arrangement is one I did from my sister to our mom.)
I even used a little symbolism with the two arrangements with white roses.
I gave the lavender roses to my mother.  There are nine lavender roses
representing her nine children, and six white roses representing my six children.
I did the same with the yellow and white roses for my mother-in-law.
She had seven children, so there are seven yellow roses in her arrangement.
It was so fun to do these for two of the most special ladies in my life!

Jacob's and Wendee's Wedding



 This wedding is very similar to the last wedding I did.
I love working with hydrangea!
It just gives a lovely shape to the bouquet.
It was a pleasure to do these flowers for such a sweet bride.
Congratulations to Jacob and Wendee!
