We’re Hosting a Workshop: Oh For Fun!
March 9, 2016
I am so excited to announce that my dear friend Jordan Brittley and I are hosting a workshop this spring for the ladies in Springfield, MO! This is going to be an inspiring, joy-filled, educational and encouraging time surrounded by fresh blooms, lovely people, donuts and OJ! Our hearts are to share some basic knowledge and practical skills about floral design and phone photography that you will be able to apply and use in your everyday life! I personally feel that every woman should have a basic understanding on how to put flowers together to create a lovely centerpiece, so I’m very excited to share a little bit of what I know with you at the event! Tickets go on sale THIS Friday! There are only 15 available so if you’d like to be the first to have access to the tickets click here.
Friday can’t come soon enough, but in the meantime, we have a teaser freebee that we’re giving away called “How to Make Your Very Own Floral Crown”. I’m giving away my secrets on how I create floral crowns and it will only be available for a limited time so get it while you can! I can’t wait to see you at the workshop!
Real Wedding: Cody & Lorna
February 23, 2016
An intimate wedding with family, friends and those dearest to their hearts, Cody and Lorna’s summer wedding was bursting with joy, love, freedom, and color. The florals were comprised of peach and pink roses, eucalyptus, ranunculus, stock, Italian ruscus, spray roses, garden roses and peonies. Everything we did floral wise for C+L’s wedding was my favorite! haha But seriously, I loved that Lorna trusted me, had incredible taste, and wanted a luscious, overflowing bridal bouquet, a 40-foot long garland (!!) and florals all throughout the romantic, quaint barn. There wedding was so pretty and many thanks to Jordan for the photos and all the great vendors below!

Modern Copper and Fuchsia Wedding Inspiration
February 11, 2016
A wintry Valentine’s day theme, this rich and romantic color scheme features copper tones with warm berry toned pinks and fuchsia. From Abby Mitchell Events, the planning and designing team, “Our inspiration truly came from the color palette. We wanted it to feel current but traditional, minimalistic but glamorous and just overall very pretty and feminine.”
For the florals, I was very strategic in choosing items that were romantic, elegant and timeless, but with fun and unexpected elements. The floral selection ranged from garden roses, ranunculus, stock, dianthus, berries and lots of rich green foliage. The organic style gave it that fun, relaxed twist. As seen on The Perfect Palette!
Kudos to the vendor team!

Real Wedding: Travis & Amanda
February 1, 2016
Inspired by blue and white willow-pattern and lots of greenery, Travis & Amanda’s brunch wedding was full of sentimental, charming and fun details (donuts anyone?!?). The florals we selected for their celebration were a mix of white tulips (the bride’s favorite!), ranunculus, blush garden roses, white roses, stock, navy blue privet berries, and lots of foliage. One of my favorite creations that we built for T&A’s wedding was their hanging floral piece which doubled as the focal-point for BOTH the ceremony and reception! It was just lovely and highlighted the couple’s position during both celebrations wonderfully. Congratulations on your marriage, T&A!

Icy Winter Blues: A Styled Bridal Session
January 28, 2016
From the team, “The inspiration for this styled shoot came from a desire to provide inspiration for winter brides who were in search of a fresh, lighthearted twist on your typical winter wedding.”
For the florals, we strategically picked fluffy white stock, blush-tinted peonies, along with navy blue privet berries, grey dusty miller and silver brunia berries to accomplish the frosted, blue-toned feel. We wrapped the stems in a silvery, grey ribbon while keeping the style of the bouquet very organic and natural to compliment the romantic and airy feeling of this stunning winter editorial.
