Welcome Baby Arrangments

Lately, we've had the privilege of congratulating two families on their beautiful new babies. In collaboration with Naughty Dog, Inc, we were able to pair each arrangement with a cute onesie. :)

Food Truck Fever

Lately, we've been noticing a pattern of our clients wanting to cater to their guests' late night cravings. This is a motion that we are more than happy to support because I'm sure we can all agree that cocktails give us quite the case of the munchies around ten o' clock. Therefore, without much adieu I would like to present our delicious list of food trucks that have been in popular demand (Disclaimer: this might make you hungry):

1) In N Out

If you have your hearts and stomachs set on In N Out, then book them ASAP. In fact, book a year in advance if possible. These guys are in high demand and tend to be booked up to months in advance. 

2) The Grilled Cheese Truck

I know, I'm already drooling just from the picture. I love how this food truck has taken the traditional grilled cheese and jazzed it up to make it more delicious that it already is. YUM.

3) Komodo

Komodo is best known for their ability to combine foods from different cultures to make something amazing for your taste palette. They are redefining the word fusion in the food truck industry. 

4) Cool Haus

Sometimes you just gotta end a night on ice cream. And what's better than ice cream? Ice cream sandwiches. 

5) Waffle de Liege

I only have three words: best idea ever.

Mock-up Monday!!

It's been a while but we're happy to be back! July was a crazy busy month and unfortunately, I wasn't able to blog as much as I would have preferred. So I felt it was only appropriate to come back with our most recent rendition of "Mock-up Mondays."

When the client asked for royal blue to be incorporated into her centerpiece, delphiniums were the first flowers to come to mind. That's right everybody, before skinny jeans and crop tops came in this beautiful color, nature did it best.

And lo and behold, our centerpiece.. :)

Mock-up "Monday"

Hello all! Let's just pretend that today is Monday because I cannot resist the urge to show you our most recent mock-up.

I know I've said this many many times before.. but I LOVE this color palette. Ivories, soft peaches and pinks. You cannot go wrong! 

Obligatory detail shot.

Happy "Monday" everyone!! :)

Floral of the Month | Lavender

We are happy to ring in the new month of July with the ever so fragrant lavender. A couple months ago a client approached us with the idea of a monthly floral arrangement showcasing a different flower each month. Roses, tulips and ranunculus have all had their time in limelight. We felt it was only right to feature lavender next.

Wedding Hair | Braids

Attention bride-to-be's! We have been seeing beautiful new ways to dress up the traditional wedding hairstyles. Introducing... modern adaptations of the classic braid. We love how braids add an air of romance and make just about everybody look good. Everything from the traditional braid to the fishtail braid give your hair the perfect texture to make a statement on your special day.

For brides who want to leave their hair down, we found these lovely alternatives.

Completely in love with this. 

And of course, celebrities always do it best.

Whether you leave your hair up or down, braids are perfect for spicing up those traditional wedding hairstyles. Happy wedding planning! :)
