I’ve been very lucky so far to have encountered clients who say “Do whatever you like” when we discuss the design plan. Shayna was one such client and I could have sworn it was just yesterday when we had our first meeting. She had stumbled upon me on Elizabeth Anne Designs’ blog and immediately we found out we loved all of the same things. We both wanted to use a lot of succulents, a lot of moss, and most importantly a lot of burlap. Supplied with her color palette of creams, navy blue, and lilac I had a wonderful time picking out the florals for this wedding. See for yourself! :)
Until next time! :)

Ideally, I would love to have more behind-the-scenes pictures. But amidst trying to get all my work done, I find it hard to take a moment to snap some photos. I hope to improve with my future production days, but in the meantime enjoy these couple of snapshots I did manage to capture :)
One big perk of a spring wedding is the variety of florals that are available. This includes ranunculus, one of my favorites.
And ranunculus comes in many beautiful colors.
I love using spray roses because they bloom quite nicely.
Making centerpieces is my favorite part of production day because you can whip through them fast. I wish this was the case for everything else. Haha.
Special shout out to Toms for making amazing shoes. My feet are still saying thank you.
I’ve been dying to work with birdcages and thanks to Shayna I finally had a chance to :)
Bouquet prep with succulents. The beginning of the grueling 4 hours it took for me to finish the bouquets.
And that’s all I have folks! I want to save the final product photos for the next post :p Stay tuned!
My dearest bloggy, I am so sorry for my impromptu hiatuses. It upsets me that I don’t post here as much as I’d like. I want to try and at least blog a couple times a week so here we go…
A lot has happened.
The new year has been kind and business has been growing. I’m very happy to say that I have a gig per month from April to July :) Much thanks and electronic hugs are in order for my new clients.
One such client was even kind enough to feature me on a blog entry for Blowfish Shoes. To check out my interview, direct your cursor here ;) I had to step out of my confort zone for a bit to "model" a complementary pair of shoes I was given. More details on the photo shoot in a future entry. But here is a sneak peek of what went down:

Things are really starting to move! I’m scared and excited at the same time. But I feel like this is the good kind of fear and not the kind that made me cry and speak incoherently to my college roommate. Let’s see where this good fear takes me. Until next time :)
It all started with a conversation with my dad. We both agreed that we didn’t like to look at the dead grass in our backyard. Next thing I knew we started digging up a corner of our backyard. We hope to get this done in time to plant new seeds before winter sets in. But amidst all the chaos, it was a relief to know that our rose bushes are still thriving. I just hope my hands are as tough as my roses because after just one hour of digging I popped a blister. I now have a new appreciation for farmers.
Got a last minute order and the client wanted to include a card with the arrangement. I didn’t have an envelope to put a card in so I came up with this makeshift tag. I think I just might have stumbled upon a packaging concept! :D
