Fun & Games!

Thanks for waiting… here are a few images from the Fun & Games photo shoot I worked on a while ago with some uber talented folks. We incorporated Candyland, Bingo, Chess, Rubix Cubes, Jacks, Chinese Checkers, Scrabble, Dominoes, Bottle Toss… so much fun!! For the flowers I used matsumoto asters, craspedias, baby’s breath, seeded eucalyptus, strawflowers, and rice flower.

We are really, really, really looking forward to having The Knot print this shoot in an upcoming magazine! And because of which, I must ask that these images not be reposted. And I will try to focus on the florals as to not give away too much!

Aren’t these turquoise Chivari chairs to die for?

um, making the cotton candy was probably my least favorite diy… but it warrants my argument for purchasing my very own machine!

The colors of the blooms really coordinated with the outfits. I had so much fun making these bingo flower balls:

i went through a turquoise painting kick after i finished these bottles and had left over paint…

here’s my personal favorite detail of the day:

Hump day

As much as Wednesdays evoke the feeling of time  s l o w l y  passing, I must say this year is flying by. Wasn’t 2010 a new thing like yesterday? Anyway here’s a Springy bouquet for you all to get through the rest of your hump day.


Little furry balls of great green fun

(ought to be a band name) (btw I am terrific at naming things) (please contact me for your next identity venture)

So one of my favorite things right now are these particular Dianthus…. little furry balls of great green fun. Imagine the possibilities! They belong in a Dr. Seuss story … and a pair of craft wiggle eyes would be perfect! The theme for this past weekend’s Bridal shower was Girly Colorful Fun and I couldn’t help but to throw in these little guys!


Girly heaven

So last week i had a fun day with O, L & R. and we ‘had’ to go to Shareen’s to pick out some dresses for the photo shoot we recently did (pics to come!). not knowing what to expect & coming in with high hopes, we were met with walls & racks & racks of beautiful vintage clothing: laces & sheers, knits & furs, wools & satins… i was seriously in girly heaven. to be surrounded constantly by beautiful things, S W O O N. it’s exactly how i feel about design and great showrooms (such as Blackman Cruz, Kravet, and Environment Furniture just to name a few).  i am absolutely the type of girl who can live in fancy tulle ballgowns and sweatpants, in an open space with all but 1 or 2 key pieces of distinguished furniture.

i wanted to hug Shareen for having such a wonderful hidden space, and the best part was, no boys allowed! i wish we had all the time in the world to try on every single little number and romp around, but alas, that didn’t happen. Anyway, Shareen and her lovely employees were so extremely hospitable and helpful. They were on it!

Yesterday i visited again with J to return the rentals and also gave her this floral arrangement that i made for her:

She accepted it with such grace and gratitude… i am absolutely smitten with this woman whom i’ve met for a total of 10 minutes… running her show the way she does, with such authority and sweetness and sleekness. i love it! again, S W O O N!
