Ivory, Purple and Green Bouquet

Ivory, Purple and Green Bouquet
Several months ago, a friend from my old church got engaged and asked me if I would be willing to create her wedding bouquet. Chris was one of the worship music leaders and she also taught the VBS my son attended. She is such a wonderful person and gives so much in the name of Christ. She knew she wanted ivory gardenias and hydrangeas in deep purple, but also liked [...]

She's not getting married until later this year, but she had a bridal shoot scheduled and wanted to have it for that. Her request was for corals, pinks, peaches, ivory and some yellow. We agreed to peonies, ranunculus, roses, anemones, hipericum berries, be[...]

Bridal Bouquet with a Vintage Look

Bridal Bouquet with a Vintage Look
A client recently asked me if I could create a bouquet off of a photo of another clay artist's design. That's always hard because each clay artist has their own style and look. However she liked certain elements of that bouquet and I tried to incorporate them but also make it my own design. She wanted eucharist flowers but instead of the traditional green[...]

Ivory, Yellow and Green Wedding Bouquet

Ivory, Yellow and Green Wedding Bouquet
The first week of January was spent working on this bouquet. My client is not getting married until later this year, but she is having a bridal photo shoot with her photographer and she wanted to be able to have it for that shoot. When we talked about her flowers she wanted hints of coral in her bouquet. We hadn't talked much via Facebook so there was a bit of conf[...]

Dogwoods and Redbuds…

Dogwoods and Redbuds...
A client contacted me roughly 6 months ago and asked if I could create redbuds. I didn't know what they were so I had to Google them. What lovely little buds they are. The bride's two main flowers she wanted to be highlighted in her bouquet were dogwoods and redbuds. Her wedding is going to be held in a barn and so she wanted a rustic look with pinks, whites, redbu[...]

Pink Peonies and Snow Berries

Pink Peonies and Snow Berries
After the move to Southern California, we have been blessed with awesome Spring and Summer like weather. We finally got hit with a big winter storm. We had small rivers and lakes growing around our house. While the rain is a welcome sight with drought like conditions, it is something we need. Needless to say, I missed my daily dose of bright blue skies and sunlight[...]

Corals, Peaches and PInks....
Since I've been making wedding bouquets, I had a few clients tell me their wedding was called off. It saddens me when I hear that, but do understand that maybe it was for the best. The wonderful thing though with most of my clients who have told me their wedding was called off, later down the road inform me they have set a new date. Jill is one of those clients and[...]
