Baby's Breath, Carnations and Paper Flowers go GLAM!

Who knew that some of the most inexpensive flowers and paper designs could turn an event into a FABULOUS affair.  Whenever I meet with brides, they always seem to think that the premium flowers are the only way to translate over-the-top centerpieces.  They almost always turn up their noses to the mention of carnations!!  Let me tell you, its a new day!  Many of the top designers have put a spin on carnations, baby's breath and paper flowers by clustering them together to create these beautiful massive centerpieces and wall displays.  Each one has a very distinctive look but have a common thread of beauty.  Who knew!!  I absolutely love the vision, creativity and design of these designers.  Simply amazing!!!!

Styled Shoot: Southern Chic Bridesmaid Luncheon

It's been a minute since I blogged, but I'm back with some beautiful photos of a photo shoot.  Some of my friends, who happen to be some of Atlanta's premier wedding and dessert artists, and I collaborated on this gorgeous styled shoot.  It was the brainchild of Jan McBee of LaFete Weddings.  When she decribed the vision, I was on board all the way!  As a result of our collaboration, we brought amazing details, FABULOUS color, beautiful lush flowers and AWESOME dessert art by Sift! Atlanta by Tristen Patriz, owner and pastry chef.  The day was bright and extremely windy; so we had to keep refreshing the table.  But, the end result was a gorgeous tablescape for a Southern and Chic Bridesmaid Luncheon.  I would love to be invited to an event like this anyday!  Thanks to Taun Henderson for the AWESOME photography and Lisa R. Zacheery of Papered Wonders for the stationary.
