The Undercover Floral Stunner

The floral elements of an event are often one of the most expensive components of the occasion.  We often see GORGEOUS photos of multicolored arrangements and plush bouquets that we set our hearts on–and then we go to the florist and see the price.  For example, bride and bridesmaid bouquets can be as pricey as $300 per bouquet, which is definitely quite a large chunk of change.  Sometimes these realizations can cause brides to panic, but I promise there is light at the end of the tunnel!  For those that are open to other options, there is a type of flower that can create absolutely, beautiful bouquets and decorations–and it has a much more budget-friendly price tag.  This undercover floral stunner is the well known flower referred to as baby’s breath.

I believe that photographs can be one of the most important decor elements when creating a customized event. Continue reading

The counter decorations featured printed paper elements in conjunction with subtle lighting from tea candles.

Pretty In Pink

Pink is a color that girls and women alike have always adored.  It symbolizes everything that is sweet, feminine, romantic, and girly. So why not use it as a color for your next event?  From hot pinks to subtle, light, dusty tones, pinks can be great main and accent colors.  They can be paired with complimentary neutrals, or matched with an equally exciting and bold color like a lime green.
