It’s DIY week on my bloggity and while I’m not one to suggest DIY florals for your wedding (as evidenced in yesterday’s post) and I almost never use carnations, I do know that some people are brave and determined enough to give it a go so here are some tips for a super easy, cost effective tabletop design.  I think if

Why DIY Wedding Flowers Are A Don’t!

I’m presenting DIY tips this week and it wouldn’t be complete without a look back {a classic rewind if you will} at reasons why I think DIY flowers are a no-no.  It’s not simply because I am a floral designer with delusions of grandeur that no one can do what I do, rather I offer this

Green Flowers for St. Patty’s Day

The Irish may be lucky, but those stem-died green carnations that pop up every year are no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  Check out these green ranunculus.  They’re much cooler than died blooms. Another look at a green ranunculus.  I LOVE them! I got this super cute pot at the gift

Love it/Hate it: Your Wedding Website

One trend that has developed over the past several years is the customized wedding website.  It seems that just about every couple has a wedding website of some sort.  From free website templates to upgraded personalized sites there is no detail left untold (for better or for worse!) on some wedding websites.   First, the love.  I
