Looking Forward

This is my first blog so bear with me...I have created this blog to share my work with everyone. I have finally decided that I am going to concentrate full time on floral design with an emphasis on weddings. This has been a dream of mine for a long time and I don't want to pass this up. I will be posting pictures of my work on this blog and would love your feedback and referrals.
This piece is a sample bouquet that I made for a bride who is getting married on May 10th. The ceremony will be at the Greek Orthodox Church and the reception will be at the El Cortez!!! I am very excited to work at the El Cortez and can't wait. In regards to this bouquet, it is a classic hand tied bouquet made from green cymbidium orchids (my current favorite flower), magenta roses, peach/orange roses, dark purple ranunculus, light blush ranunculus, pinkish purple fressia and accents of green coffee bean. The freesia made the bouquet smell absolutely divine, they are much more fragrant than roses. It was wrapped in hot pink chiffon ribbon and pinned with pearl straight pins. I loved loved loved the dynamic contrast of colors. I think that all the colors popped and would be gorgeous with almost any color dress. I wish I could have kept it because it was just sooo pretty but I had to give it up :(. Needless to say, I got the job and am very excited to work on this wedding.
I will continue to post my work and hope that everyone enjoys it.
thanks, Sally :)
