This has turned out to be one of my personal favorite weddings of the summer. Growing up in the south, we definitely love our ribbon here! This delicate sweet ribbon treatment was displayed on the three of The Driskill's chandeliers--along with some bling and pomanders.

And of course, the blingy tree made an appearance--girls of the south--a touch of whimsy with elegance.

One of my favorite photos-- thanks to
Barbara of for connecting us with this bride,
to Tyler Schmitt, The Mill photography studio, for making what we do look its best.
These few images were featured over on Styleunveiled last week--thanks for the shout out!

Garden roses + peony

I love beautiful flowers! Garden roses, peony, cymbidium orchids, roses and sweet peas made up this extra girly pink bouquet- we designed this earlier this spring.

Along with these complementing centerpieces--the brides brother was in charge of picking them up from our shop and transporting them to the ceremony and reception. Mission accomplished!
Thanks to Danny C. photography for the images!

Thank you for your patience. We have had limited appointments in October but look forward to meeting with you soon.
A gentle reminder--we do not schedule appointments on Fridays and Saturdays, we are designing and delivering our weekend events.

Purple, coral and feathers!

An adorable centerpiece to go with yesterday's arbor decor-- simple but effective.
Yes, that is purple carnations in a fabric wrapped container accented with the trio of coral roses--

The sweetheart table- cascading phaelanopsis,feathers and all around prettiness.

How's this for a dessert and cake table- we worked off of an inspiration photo-turned out really gorgeous--looks like the outside brought in!

Fall arbor Villa Antonia

A little different look for the arbor at Villa Antonia--draped in eggplant chiffon and accented with orchid garlands--simple but dramatic.

We added just a touch of greenery-- the garlands fluttered quietly in the breeze.

I loved the "curtain" effect on the back--I can't wait to see the pro images-this should be a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony photos!

This fall's feature--purple

Another look at purple--it is not going away anytime soon! This bridal bouquet was designed for the recent bridal extravaganza--shades of purple including lavender.

A bouttoniere. Should bouttonieres feature ribbon and ribbon accents? I am on the fence--I love the finished look of the ribbon but I hear from the "people" that pin them on, this makes a simple task more difficult?? Any thoughts cyber friends?

Purple and green updated--

This was one of my personal favorites--I love the punch of fuschia -- the anemones were just adorable.
