The Best Reason for a Winter Wedding…

The dramatic beauty of amaryllis is reason enough. Their blooms are the size of grapefruit, they come in whites, reds, burgundy’s, corals, pinks and two-tone reds. And although they look like a lily they have no fragrance – so you

Pretty, PRETTY, Flowers

I just discovered Rose’s, Flowers & Gifts, this really hip and creative flower shop located in Vancouver. Can I just say? LOVE their arrangements. Everything looks so pretty (as noted in my title above) and really fresh. Here’s a few

Haute Arrangements

At the office, not only am I touted as the “cake girl” but I also oversee a lot of the floral arrangements both in the mag and online. Confession time though, I may not know EVERYTHING about flowers (er, sometimes

Ballroom Elegance

This weekend I saw a truly amazing backyard transformation. It took skillful coordination and attention to detail on the event planner’s part, but the result was simply stunning. A tent was placed right behind the hostess’ house, allowing the guests

The Famous Calla Lily

A stately flower that makes a huge impact all on it’s own—in a stunning brides bouquet, a tall magnificent centrepiece, a single bloom boutonnière. Callas are grown here in Canada, as well as overseas. There can be a significant difference

Hmm, bouquets or cupcakes? You decide.

I’m sure most of you can relate to me when I say that there’s nothing more stressful than coming back to work on a Tuesday morning (after the long weekend!) to endless amounts of e-mails. BUT, I was super-glad to

Chic Fall Centrepieces

Do you find yourself dreaming of the glamorous floral centrepieces you see in wedding magazines?  I did.  Needless to say, once I found out how much those looks would cost I promptly discovered there are many ways you can get

‘Tis the Season

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it feels like Christmas is already around the corner. Yes, I know Thanksgiving is this weekend (I’m super-excited for turkey and pumpkin pie!), but I find that Thanksgiving comes and goes just like

Welcome Heat Wave

There is nothing better than a warm yellow palate to usher in the heat of the summer.  This bright wedding over looked our beautiful city from the skyscraper restaurant Canoe. I had fun using a variety of flowers to get

Spanish Affair

When I saw these images from Paperwink (a creative stationery studio)–I just had to share.

Yay Yellow!

Whenever I think of summer, the one shade that automatically pops into my mind is yellow. There’s just something about that shade that’s so cheery, and well, you know, happy. And, although it is a hard colour to wear (I

A rose today, a rose tomorrow!

We did an all rose wedding last weekend, and I really must say, as common as the rose is, it still is a flower to be marveled at. Look at this bouquet, how simple, how elegant, how “Weddingbells“!

Ribbon Frenzy

Look at what Alison from Chapeau de Gateau just sent me.

Ooh Orchids!

I’ve recently been obsessed with reading Karen Tran Floral’s (a San Diego florist) blog. Okay, maybe not reading, more like scanning through all her beautiful photos and saving them onto my desktop for inspiration like this one.

Simple Flowers

Hey, you know what? I think it’s completely normal if you don’t want too much wedding decoration at your actual reception. Sometimes, simple really is best, and if it’s not in your personality to have a lot of frill then

Table for Six

This guest table is in one word—stunning! I personally think that having smaller or more intimate weddings lets you splurge on all the pretty details.

Floating Candles

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: centrepieces are a difficult decor element.

Night Light

How gorgeous does this evening reception look?

Cute Centrepiece

Did you know that one of the best places to find wedding inspiration is on a wedding photographer’s website/blog?

Centre Stage

If there’s one wedding detail I struggle with, it’s centrepieces. Finding the one that all your guests will stare at for the whole evening is pivotal. It can’t be too extravagant or too big.
