Heather's Bridal Shower

It's been about a month since I posted, this June is a slow fact last summer I had 12 weddings...this summer 6. I'm figuring with the economy and the expense of having a wedding many brides and grooms have put off scheduling their big day. The fall though is shaping up very well. So far I have 1 wedding in September, 2 in October, and 3 (possibly 4) in November! I haven't posted because I lost my charger. The new one just arrived in the mail today...I put off ordering a new one because I was hoping the lost one would show up. How much do you want to bet I'll find it now ;).

If you've checked in with my blog a few times you might have read about one of my best friends getting married. A few weekends ago we had her wedding shower and of course I wanted to create cute arrangements for her.

You would also know that Heather loves purple and had been talking to me about purple roses. So I chose a rose called Cool Water (like the perfume I wore way too much of in high school!) and it turns out it was exactly the color she was thinking of for her wedding.

I created a heart out of wire and place 3 dendrobium orchids inside of it...I wanted it to be sweet.

Since I am in the wedding and doing the flowers I've hired help for the wedding's a big one, they've invited close to...(or it might even be over!) 300 guests. And since I am doing the flowers for her at wholesale cost we have lots of room in the budget to create over the top centerpieces. I am really looking forward to it.
