Marathon Weekend... part 2

 The Pecten Ballroom at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center is one of the larger ballrooms with high ceilings. In order to really create a "wow" impact you need to fill the space with some thing gorgeous, lush, and colorful. Now what in the world could that possibly be? Hmm.... Oh, I know FLOWERS!
 These gorgeous flowers were amazing; and when you walked into the room you had to stop and admire all the gorgeous flowers. We did some tall and some low arrangements which creates depth and interest but the tall arrangements really added the "WOW" factor. With a mixture of roses, lilies, mums, hypericum, dahlias, orchids, and miniature garden roses the flowers really brought the room to life.

 This was an event to remember. With spring time colors that were fresh and exciting these gorgeous centerpieces in the Emerald Ballroom at the Woodlands Resort and Conference Center were the perfect compliment to a formal event.
Filled with dendrobium orchids, yellow roses, green gladiolas, green cymbidium orchids, bells of Ireland and seeded eucalyptus these arrangements were fresh, fun and formal.

A Weekend Marathon... part 1

 There is something magical about the fall, but at the while time seems to disappear at an increasingly rapid pace. The beautiful weather is the perfect setting for outdoor weddings. I'm sure many of us would love to have been married or would love to get married on a beautifully non-humid day where the temperatures linger around 70 degrees. While not all of us have that luxury, on October 16th we celebrated the beautiful weather with 11 events! Yes, I said 11. Our expert team managed every detail to perfection. So here is part one our very own October marathon!
 Rich colors really popped of the heavenly background. Blooms of asiatic lilies, two tone roses, bells of ireland and hypericum berries provided luscious texture for her guests to enjoy.
 I love to see all the different cakes at the weddings we do. I am amazed at the talent that I see in all the intricate work that goes into every layer, every ribbon and every piped design. I always end up dreaming about what wonderful concoctions are inside; they always smell so lovely!

 I fell in love with the designs for this wedding. I love texture and of course my favorite color is green! I am continually attracted to the fresh and energizing effects that a green and white event has on those lucky enough to enjoy the decor.This brides dress was truly stunning and she was so sweet.
 I loved the table centerpieces; full, lush and slightly funky with hydrangea, spider mums, green hypericum, and monkey tails!

Her ceremony was held of the Forest Deck at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center. Our rental curtains created a soft ambiance for the ceremony, accented by 2 gorgeous altar arrangements in all white and green.

Stay tuned for part 2 of our 11 event marathon weekend!

All Hallows Eve

 One of our favorite things about this time of year, other than the crisp cool air, which has finally decided to stay for a while, are the fabulous parties! This year for The Club at Carlton Woods children's Halloween party was filled with fun, bright, and vibrant fall colors and Spooky accents. 
 They also had an adult Halloween party with gorgeous plum, black, lavender and ruby toned decor. Each centerpiece was filled with texture, glitter, fragrance and even illuminated by a lavender underwater light.
 With suspended orchids and arching tulips these tall centerpieces were stunning against the platinum linens from The Linen House.
 Our Dessert table buffet arrangement was truly alive with a skull and horns.
Our showpiece for the event consisted of a giant black tree with black ribbon, purple glitter leaves, led twinkling lights and orchids tangled throughout the branches. at the base of the tree a beautiful black urn was exploding with rich vibrant blooms. Now, we don't simple use flowers in our arrangements, we incorporated beautiful plum glitter branches, eggplant artichokes, ribbons and lights. With all these beautiful elements we can create a truly spectacular showpiece.
