A sad as it may be to admit, summer will soon be just a memory. But before you get too down, remember that this is a great time of year for a wedding. The change from late summer to early fall brings along a stunning color palate. Orange is still on top for the season but if your looking for a change try paring it up with deep burgundy or purples. Check out my inspiration and let me know what you think.
There seems to be some wet stuff falling from the sky today. It has been so long I forget what they call it. All I know is that, for today anyways, I can take a break from the task of watering the flowers. Instead I sit back and watch out my windows as the trees in the woods turn dark green as they drink up their fill. So it is because of this rare occasion this summer, the rain, my favorite color, purple, and one awesome Prince song, Purple Rain that I drew my inspirations. Enjoy and leave me your comments below.
The last few days of this heat wave, that everyone here in Wisconsin has had the pleasure to sweat though, has left me thinking of the sun. So I put together some inspiration full of sunshine. Warm and cheerful and oh so romantic. Enjoy the pics and leave your thoughts about the sunshine below.
If I could plan my wedding all over again I think I would want something that
resembles nature. I have come to the conclusion that Mother Nature did it best.
There is so much beauty that surrounds us in our everyday lives, so many of us
and I am guilty myself, forget to take the time to slow down and see whats right
in front of us. I was reminded of this yesterday when I had a lovely meeting
with Shelly from Signature Events by Shelly. She brought me to
stunning local that over looks the water and really makes you stop and take
notice. With that as my motivation, I put together just a taste of what my nature inspired wedding would look like. Let me know what you think.
With prom on my mind I wanted to share some great flower ideas for guys! All to often we forget the guys, it's easy to do. Most guys are not flower lovers, some are even flowers haters but truthfully most guys just don't give flowers a second thought, unless they are buying them for someone else. Boutonnieres are wonderful for giving guys a chance to express themselves through floral art while still letting them feel manly. Here some some great examples I put together for inspiration. Do any of them catch your eye?

_Pantone Color Institute has named Tangerine Tango as the color of the year for 2012. Yeah I know what you are thinking. Orange...yuck, who would pick orange as the color of the year. But this is where you are wrong. Tangerine Tango in anything but that traditional orange we are all use to. Tangerine Tango is bright, fun, cheerful and has a way of bring warmth and fun to any design. Tangerine Tango is popping up in fashion, interior design and yes even weddings. One thing to remember about bold color, a little goes a long way. So go ahead and make a modern, cutting edge statement at your wedding!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Why not WOW your guests and set a stunning table for your holiday feast. A festive centerpiece is sure to make all your guest ooh and aah. A beautiful arrangement can be homemade and doesn't have to cost a lot. Shop at your local dollar/thrift store or you can use things you have laying around. Some great items might include: Small pumpkins, Gourds, Silk Fall Leaves, Straw, Wheat, Indian corn, Apples, Pears, Cranberries, Branches, Candles, Pine cones, or Wicker Baskets. Get creative and see what you can find! Our inspiration board has a few ideas to get you started. When arranging, start with larger items and fill in spaces with smaller items. Group like items together for the most emphasis. Of course you can always call your local florist for some help. Name cards and napkin rings are also nice touches to make your guest feel extra special. There are so many possibilities for your Thanksgiving table.
