The venue was the Caisse de Depot et placements atrium. The theme was white, the look achieved was a whimsical winter wonderland. It was chic and modern and ready just in time for the 340+ guest.
We never pulled off a party of this magnitude, mostly because all 38 centerpieces (including bar area) had to be made on location. We had 7 hours and 100 sq ft of space to create magic. I said it then and I will say it again, I think my heart stopped between 2 and 4pm. I really didn't know if we would be done on time. Stresssssss!
The vases contained 6 white glitter branches adorned with pearls and approximately 6 dozen individually glued on dendrobium orchid heads. The work involved was painful but the final product was sublime. I stayed until the daylight fell so I could snap a few pictures of the lit up vases. Each vase had 3 submersible lights at different level which illuminated the glittery snow inside the vase. I would have loved to have a chance to see the tables lit up with the candles too but I was covered in glue, glitter, tears and sweat and guest were arriving, so I took the door and hoped it would look as good as I had imagined. As per the feedback, it looked better than the client imagined. Yay!


The combination of white on green is one that makes my heart sing. Simple, elegant, subdued it is perfect for any decor or occasion.
There are quite a few green flowers on the market. A new favorite of the shop is the "Mondial" rose. It's a perfect shade of soft green with a rich creamy center and it develops beautifully.

HAPPY 2011!!

A little late on the well wishes but I have had so little time to update the blog. The month of December was crazy busy! We took some well needed R&R after the holidays and closed for a couple of days. The closure also had much to do with the lack of fresh flowers available on the market between Christmas and New Years...
We are back and ready to make 2011 even better than 2010. A big thank you to all our customers who allow us to grow and create, may your year be filled with all the good little things life brings us!
