Bouquets are coming!

I had so much fun putting this zingy little number together on Saturday. While I don't normally prefer to design with out of season flowers, this bride really had her heart set on French anemones. But they really fit perfectly with her whole graphic look - so we couldn't resist. While the heads are not as full as when they are at their peak, anemones never cease to wow. Her bridesmaid's bouquet had mostly magenta flowers. Including this lovely scented rose called Blue Mammy. This wedding was about 2 hours upstate. A horrific crash on the Palisades delayed us by almost 2 hours. Thank god we left with plenty of time to spare. But then again if we left later we may have avoided the pile up (?). Who really knows. I grew a few extra gray hairs yesterday.

The anemones with the striped ribbon looks like something out of the movie Gigi...so pretty. I sympathize with the traffic scenario. I think it's the only time I ever get ReaLLY nervous.

THey are fab bouquets. Loving the ribbon too. Traffic is always a mare - l'oreal is great for 100% coverage!!!!!!How did your perfume bottles event go?Sinead
