Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!  
This is the week our stomachs have been waiting for!  We get to eat goodies and gather with the ones we love the most.  Since the holiday is late in the week, I know you've already contacted us for your beautiful table arrangement right?  Right!  Long and low table centerpieces or a low arrangement in a vase add that final touch to your table.  Your turkey might be jealous that the flowers are stealing the spotlight!

Chandelier Ballroom Wedding

Angela and Patrick's Wedding Day

One thing that we loved most about Angela and Patrick's wedding was the pops of color, aqua and coral!  They used this color combination in every detail from the draping fabric from all the chandeliers at the Chandelier Ballroom to cute little favors boxes (filled with chocolate dipped Oreos... yumm!) at every place setting.

The florals were soft white hydrangeas, peach garden roses, coral spray roses and cream calla lilies.  Each centerpiece was a stunning 5 foot tall vasing, towering over every table. It took a team of 4 floral designers 3 hours to set up the centerpieces alone.  They definitely had the wow factor when you walked in to their reception room (not to mention the custom special lighting with the bride and grooms name!) 

We would like to thank Angela and Patrick for having us as part of your wedding. You really brought out so many beautiful aspects and many wonderful details.  We wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Villa Filomena Wedding

Beth and Tony's Wedding Day

Beth had wonderful artistry and vision in creating her wedding flowers.  I really enjoyed the journey and relationship we created for the last year and half, trading emails and scheming in our wedding balcony consultation area.  Beth's research on flowers even stimulated and challenged my own floral passion.  

Beth and Tony's theme was vintage and it could be seen in every detail.  The centerpieces were antique silver pieces that she and her family had been collecting on line and in antique boutiques all over Wisconsin.  The bridesmaid's bouquets were adorned with delicate rhinestone shoe buckles from the 1940's .  The  highlight was Beth's vintage inspired wedding dress covered in delicate cream lace. 

Thank you Beth for sharing your love for flowers with me.  
Best wishes!
