PMI Wedding Show Part 2!

Here is the best of the rest!  PMI Wedding Show Part 2!  (And it's been delivered in less than 6 months!)

Miniature succulents (which we love as they are more dainty and light-weight than their larger cousins!  And weight should definitely be a consideration for a bridal bouquet that you'll be carrying for hours!)  Here they are paired with ivory hydrangea, waxflower and pearls!  This was one of our faves as well!

Complimenting corsage and bout!

A woodsy feel-green roses, dusty miller, red huckleberry (which is actually a green foliage-go figure?!) and lichen-covered branches.

A coordinating centerpiece of fresh moss, succulents and lichen branches.  We are really loving the moss as of late-with emerald being the pantone of the year, we think it may be very on trend in the next few years.  

Another centerpiece - for those who might want something more traditional!  Black baccara roses, lavender lisianthus, euryngium (blue thistle), astrantia, and scented geranium.  Love this rich jewel-toned color scheme!

Picasso callas (one of my favorite callas) with guinea hen feathers (one of my favorite feathers) and dusty miller (one of my favorite bouquet foliages.)

A perennial favorite-a cymbidium orchid pomander for bridesmaids or flower girls.  We love cymbids for this look as they are so elegant and so durable!  And sometimes flower girls require something durable!  Sometimes bridesmaids do too, for that matter!  :)

Woodland sweetness! Pink ranunculus paired with fern curls, silver brunnia, seeded euc and a deconstructed grapevine orb.

Complete with a birch bark wrap.

And a matching bout for him!

And just a glimpse of one section of our booth!  I wish I'd taken more overall photos, but this gives you a peek at what it looks like all put together!

Thanks for reading!

PMI Wedding Show 2013 Part 1

Hello All!  (Yes, it's been a while!)  We've wrapped up beautifully successful 2012 wedding and holiday seasons, and are now looking forward to what 2013 has to offer.  What better way to ponder the possibilities than by making everything our hearts' desire for the PMI Wedding Show this past weekend?  We can't think of a better way to ring in the New Year.  


 Lavender roses and ivory spray roses accented with crocheted flowers, rhinestones and pearls.  This concept would be perfect for a bride who wanted to incorporate details from her mother's or grandmother's dress.  (Many brides love the sentiment of wearing their mother's dress, but also love the idea of choosing a gown of their own!)  A bit of lace or a few embroidered flowers from their mother's dress could be worked among the blossoms of the bride's bouquet to capture the sentiment.    

Billy balls and dusty miller.  Sunny, simple, fresh, perfect.

 His bout to match!

Green cymbidium orchids, Circus roses (love those!), orange pincushion protea, loops of curly willow and a few more billy balls!

Barely peach gerbera daisies, ivory hydrangea, leucodendron for some unexpected texture, and dusty miller.

My personal fave...the fuzzy texture of protea paired with cymbidium orchids and collared with fluffs of ostrich plume.  I was thrilled to see how much love this one got!  I was a little worried it was a bit "out there" - shows how much I know!  :)

 Another fave.  Cotton!  Natural, and still on the boll.  We think this is destined to be one of the next "big things."  Paired with lisianthus, astrantia and seeded eucalyptus.


Cotton boll boutonniere.  I mean, how could this not be the next big thing?  :)

 Succulents.  Yes, we still have much love for succulents.  Especially when they are petite little sweethearts like these accented with pearls, hydrangea, waxflower and button mums!

An under-appreciated rose in our books, this is Hocus Pocus, paired with cymbidium orchids, scented geranium and these ingenious little fans Barbi made from scrapbook papers.  A great texture with the softness of the roses.  

One of Barbi's favorites to finish...white hydrangea accented with her own personal collection of vintage brooches.  Again, a wonderful way to incorporate something special from mom or grandma, or have some of the special women in your life bring a vintage brooch to your bridal shower as part of your gift.  Add them into your bouquet and they'll be with you as you walk down the aisle.  

Stay tuned for Part 2!  There were too many good things to fit them all into one post!
