In my home - Spring tulips

I am most often drawn to vibrant rich colors, but these pale yellow tulips I just couldn't resist. And the fact that they were a "double tulip" made them even more irresistible. The more they open, the more spectacular they are!

Oh ya, and the silver poodle Marley, he is pretty spectacular too!

Modern Bride Victoria

At the beginning of the month, not only did I have my first wedding for 2013 but I was also part of the Modern Bride event. It was the first of it's kind, and the idea was to have a "bridal expo" that was like no other. Booths were set up though out the mall by various wedding vendors. And the day ended with a "live" wedding, in which one lucky couple had their whole wedding paid for as long as they were married in the mall amongst friends, family and strangers. 

I shared a booth with Tricia from En Vied Events.

Tricia also came up with three different "wedding looks" with her beautiful table linens and accessories which were also on display through out the mall. I added the final touch of flowers which always helps complete the look.

pink rhododendron, deep purple hellebores and white hyacinth

viburnum, everest roses and freesia

Would you get married in a mall if it was all paid for?

White bridal bouquet - hydrangea and roses

This luxurious bridal bouquet consists of white hydrangea, everest roses, bouvardia, small white cymbidium orchids and freesia. It's soft, textural and scented.

The bride for this bouquet had a small picture frame that she wanted added to the bouquet, and she also wanted to include some of her mother's wedding dress. I ended up cutting the sleeve and luckily the cuff fit perfectly around the stems of the bouquet. Where I cut the sleeve, it left a bit of a ruffle and I finished it with a tie from the dress. I love adding personal touches to bouquets!
