Wedding Flowers

This set of flowers are like something I would do for a wedding. The first is a bridesmaids bouquet. If I had more flowers I would have made a brides bouquet.

This would be something like a center piece I would do for the wedding. I would probably also add three candles around the base to set the mood.

This would be the grooms boutonniere! (I had to get a different rose for this so the color is a little off, sorry)

Let me know what you think!!

Large One Sided Arrangement

I made this arrangement about a week and a half ago but just never got the chance to post it. This type of arrangement would be for something like a mantle place or a entry way table. I can do something similar with roses or almost any type of flower for a guest sign in table at a wedding. This particular arrangement is made of 2 gerber daisies, 1 lily, 6 spray carnations, 2 green calla lilies, 5 daisy mums, babies breath, salal leaves, and eucalyptus leaves. Let me know what you think!

My Sister's Wedding!!!

So my sister got married about a month ago on February 19th. I was going to do all her flowers (bridesmaids bouquet and her bouquet) but we found someone who could do them for a little bit more then I could so we decided to have her do them to relieve the stress. She wanted to have feathers in everything! I still ended up making the boutonnieres and little head pieces for the little girls. We made them out our feather earrings from Forever 21. Well on her wedding day she got her bouquet.....IT WAS A DISASTER!!! There were about 25 calla lilies and if you know anything about callas their stems are soooooo thick. Usually you only use about 3 to 5 stems in a bouquet otherwise it's too thick. We called it the burrito. SO needless to say she was not happy. So I was on a mission! I went searching for white roses at every floral shop I could find so I could make her a new bouquet. I found some and made her a new one before the reception and she was very happy. SO here are some pictures of her bouquet, the boutonnieres, and head pieces. Let me know what you think!

Let me know what you honestly think!!

Posted here are some pictures of my previous work that I have done from newest down to the oldest. I don't have pictures of a lot of what I have done because I never really thought to take pictures until now! I will add pictures of my work as I continue to improve. Hope you enjoy.

So when my sister got married someone gave her these flowers. Later when I was cleaning her apartment for when her and her husband came home the next day I got to arrange them in a vase for her and I loved ever minute of it!!

I made this around Halloween time. It was made inside a real pumpkin!

I made this just for my house because I wanted something to brighten my day! What's better than flowers!!
