Stunning Photos

As I've said many times. We love showing off the fabulous pictures from the professional photographers who shoot our events. They have such a talent for capturing the fabulous colors and textures of our beautiful creations! Here are some we just couldn't pass up sharing!
With gorgeous colors the stunning arrangements simply lit up the room! We used lanterns with a wreath of flowers for one style of centerpieces with our 32" fluted vases with a stunning elevated arrangements for the other.
The ceremony was held on the Forest Deck at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center. There is nothing more beautiful than a stunning day outdoors with the natural foilage as a backdrop for such a special day.
The reception was held at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center in the Emerald Ballroom.

New Years Eve Extravaganza

Every year we look forward to decking out The Club at Carlton Woods for their annual New Years eve party! This year the color scheme was reminiscent of everything underwater, with teals, purples, deep blues and greens it was a beautiful combination that gave the Club a completely new look for one night.
This beautiful piece showcases movement by using different mediums to cascade around a wrought iron trellis structure. The vibrant blue of the delphinium in contrast to the chartruse green cymbidium orchids draws your attention in and upwards.
This trio of arrangements is done in the same beautiful colors with fun accents of underwater lights and submerged orchids and wire ornaments.
With a party this size its best to keep a consistent theme throughout the club house. By using the same style in each design with slightly different elements we've done just that!

We love how the bold colors caught your eye as you entered each room, begging for closer inspection. We had a fabulous New Years and we hope you did too!

Ruby Reds

Some December brides love to embrace the seasons colors and specific varieties, while others do just the opposite. These are some beautiful arrangements from some of those who love the red and white.
At The Woodlands United Methodist Church we decorated the Robb Chapel doors with beautiful Christmas wreaths. The bride choose a traditional handtied bouquet of red roses and white stephanotis.
The centerpieces were done in two different styles. First we created low arrangements using a floral wreath around a glass hurricane filled with white hydrangea and red miniature garden roses. And the tall arrangements were done with gold curly willow, in tall glass flutes with white hydrangea and red miniature garden roses accented by hanging crystals and glass votives.

Holiday Brides

The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center is a beautiful venue for any special event, and as their in house florist we love seeing all the different possibilities for gorgeous florals in each ballroom.
No matter how many events we design, they are all unique, different and memorable. Our consultants specialize in creating a unique and personalized decor scheme that reflects your style, theme and personality. Many people ask if we have standard package weddings. Our answer has always been no. It often leads me to wonder: are they having a package wedding, dress, and guest list? No. So why in the world would we not want to spend extra time with our clients to plan the details of a day that they will remember for the rest of their lives?
Our expertly trained event consultants know the ins and outs of all the local spots, especially The Woodlands Resort. We know how to take your dream and make it a reality in a way that is perfectly tailored to you.
So if you are planning the big day, a big birthday bash, bar-mitzvah or a corporate event give us a call and we'll help your vision become a reality.
The rooms featured in this post are The Glass (purple centerpieces with gladiolas), the Forest Deck (decorated with stretched tulle and floral accents in yellow and orange), and the Emerald Ballroom (with low centerpieces with white hydrangea and yellow Gerbera daisies).

White Winter Wedding

Winter in Houston is not quite what you imagine when you think of a white winter, but that doesn't mean there's not a fair share of white to go around. With it being the most popular winter wedding color it's not a surprise that in December we had quite a few spectacular white weddings. This beautiful bride carried a bouquet of white roses and cymbidium orchids wrapped in a white satin ribbon with a sparkling broach accent. Her ceremony was held at St. Anthony of Paudua's Catholic Church in The Woodlands, which is already beautiful, but with a few stunning arrangements in all white along with pew decor of lilies and holy it truly transforms the sanctuary.
Her reception was held at Augusta Pines in their fabulous ballroom. By alternating 2 different styles of centerpieces the room held fabulous appeal and had a wonderful variety of texture and visual interest. With a combination of white gladiolas, white oriental lilies, white dendrobium orchids, bells of Ireland and mixed greens the depth of each arrangement drew the eyes in and begged for more attention, which is exactly what you want from your arrangements. It's all about getting the initial reaction, the ohh-ing and ahh-ing and then as the night continues the centerpieces that are truly spectacular simply beg for closer inspection. These arrangements did just that! Congratulations to our beautiful bride, we love show casing our favorite weddings!

For the past two years we have had the privilege to decorate for Anadarko's annual Holiday party, and oh what a lovely party it is! With over 200 arrangements, 50+ cocktail table arrangements and buffet centerpieces the Marriott ballrooms were bursting with floral gorgeous-ness!
With a mixture of cushion poms, cream roses, pinecones, mixed evergreens, oriental lilies and gerber a daisy blooms these beautiful arrangements were accented by blue aluminum wire, gold ornaments and fresh red cranberries giving just the right combination of color and texture.
