Orfila Winery Bridal Show 2015
04.20.15

We had such a wonderful time yesterday at Orfila Winery's annual bridal show meeting new brides and chatting with some of the top wedding vendors in San Diego!  Thank you to everyone who came out and said "Hi".  It is always so much fun getting to be creative and helping design the tables in the center of the tent from choosing the linens, tables, and chairs and then designing the florals to compliment it all.  We hope you enjoyed our florals : )

Valentine's Day Flowers 2015
02.18.15

We hope everyone had a romantic Valentine's Day weekend and enjoyed time with your loves!  A huge thank you to all of our amazing clients who ordered bouquets for the special someone.  We loved playing cupid and sending a little sunshine and love through our flowers.  We are so impressed and thankful that everyone trusts our design skills and that no one ordered a dozen red roses... because who really wants a dozen red roses... not anyone I know!  We even had one of our sweetest past grooms order a bouquet to resemble his wife's bridal bouquet (last image shown in this gallery)!

Goodbye Floral Workshop Amazingness
01.22.15

We hope you have all enjoyed our posts over the past week of our floral adventure at Lotusland for Florabundance and Flutter Magazine's Design Days workshop at Lotusland.  This was such an amazing experience and we cannot wait to apply what skills we learned for our upcoming weddings and events.  Here's a floral arrangement I designed in Sarah Winward's class that I photographed from my husband and I's campsite in Carpenteria that we called home during the workshop.  Enjoy!

Bridal Bouquet Workshop by Amy Osaba
01.20.15

We admire Amy Osaba's work so much and are so happy to have been able to learn some bridal bouquet making skills from her.  She designs her bouquets much different than most and boy it is a hand cramper!  But the full and lush outcome is worth the pain!  Hope you enjoy the images of our bouquet we designed with the gorgeous sweet peas, garden roses, hellebores, ranunculus, and so many more pretties!

Floral Workshop by Amy Merrick
01.19.15

Pinch me... I'm dreaming!  Amy Merrick is one of my favorite floral artists and stylists and we are beyond thrilled to have been a part of her class!  She taught a winter citrus inspired workshop where we deisgned with lemons, kumquats, the most gorgeous blooms provided by Florabundance, and of course... Lotus pods to fit the surroundings of Lotusland.  I love Amy even more after chatting with such a sweet soul and amazing talent.

Large Scale Floral Workshop by Sarah Winward
01.18.15

Sarah Winward's large scale floral workshop was so inspiring!  We bathed in teh morning sunlight on the back porch of Lotusland and learned so many new skills.  She is such a great teacher and we loved her take on design, foraging, and creating the perfect florals for your surroundings.  Post coming soon of our design we created in her class.

Woodland Workshop by Francoise Weeks
01.17.15

Our Woodland Workshop by the super sweet and talented Francoise Weeks from Portland, OR was one of my favorite classes of the week!  She taught the mechanics behind how to create the intricate and delicate woodland tablescapes and bouquets.  We chose a piece of weathered driftwood and adorned it with little scenes of fritillaria, forsynthia, maiden hair fern, succulents, mosses, and so much more little fun details the list goes on.

Floral Workshop by Holly Chapple
01.16.15

What an amazing week!  Every year we like to spread our wings and learn and grow by attending a floral workshop.  This year's workshop we attended was more than a dream come true!  Florabundance and Flutter Magazine hosted a 3 day floral workshop at one of our favorite gardens... Lotusland in Santa Barbara.  And the line up of teachers was surreal!  We'll be posting blogs from each workshop extravaganza!

First up... Holly Chapple!  She is such a wonderful and joyful teacher and her design ideas were brilliant.  We learned a few new ways of creating those loose and organic styled bouquets to make them massive!  All you daring brides who want a lush and large showstopper... we can help!  Check out our bridal bouquet we designed in her class with the most beautiful blooms provided by Florabundance such as white garden roses, hellebores, lilac, veronica, etc.
