terrarium workshop

Happy Tuesday Guys....I'm so excited to share such a fun post with you today...a fun Terrarium Workshop hosted by my beautiful flower friends, Jackie and Chelsie of Jackie's Flowers....and a few of their wonderful friends and a host of awesome sponsors!!  I adore these beautiful and talented ladies...the perfect "mother-daughter" team and they sent over so many wonderful images from their terrarium workshop to share with you today...so sit back and enjoy all the details...you're gonna love it!!  All the beautiful images captured by the ever so talented and sweet Amanda of Photography By Amanda Rose!!

Chelsie share all the details of the day....

It all started over coffee with some friends, talking style bloggers to pinterest, pinterest to what's trending, to all of a sudden our shared love for this whole terrarium trend! One of my friends Amanda mentioned to have some sort of class at the flower shop, Jaclyn, our other friend who is a fashion blogger quickly agreed, "OMG yea the flower shop would be the perfect place for something like this!". I ran the idea past my mom (business owner Jackie) and she soon after hopped on board. Days and days of planning and approaching vendors to help "sponsor" the event aka give us some goodies to help fill the awesome swag bags, we felt like some proud little mamas (we had never done a workshop yet! Surprisingly, our local Kiehls store was more than happy to jump on board and was ready to shoot some images over to their corporate office for us! We were SO excited, the response from our clients was outstanding and our limited spots filled fast.  

Basically, we wanted it to feel like a casual meeting of the creative minds to share fun ideas, make their own terrarium and sip and snack on some yummy treats. We went for a vintage hippie-esuqe vibe (including a home-made teepee from our grandma’s lace table cloth collection and gold painted dinosaurs tiering over the ever-so-classy platter of cream cheese and cucumber sammys!  

Build your own mimosa, grab a seat, revel in your new goodie-bag goodies ranging from a tall can of PBR to ghiridelli chocolates! It was a casual meeting under the almost 100-year old oak trees shading our 1914 craftsman style flower shop, the attendees ranged from a 12 year old to mid twenties to 50-somethings. It went off with a bang and we can't wait for more events like these in the future!

Hi Guys, thanks for stopping by the cafe and today's feature is beyond sweet!  I have the pleasure of sharing a "behind the scenes" look at two very talented and AMAZING floral designers meeting for the first time...at the NY Flower Market of course!  Denise Fasanello, of Denise Fasanello Flowers located in Brooklyn and Brooke Howsley of Pollen Floral Art located in Austin, got together after becoming friends via email.  I have to share with you that I've met SO many wonderful floral friends via email and it's such a joy to finally meet in person...I can only imagine the fun Denise and Brooke had together designing beautiful floral arrangements and totally "girl chatting"....capturing their fun day and all the beautiful florals, Suzi Varin of Q Weddings!  I LOVE Suzi's work and I'm so excited to have her stop by the cafe today...now let's check out all the beautiful images Suzi sent over....Enjoy!! 

I love this image of the flowers on the cart at the flower market...this is what we, floral designers do...placing all the floral on the cart to get a vision of the bouquet..and this combination of florals is truly "picture perfect"!

Similax Wedding Garland

Happy Thursday Guys...a few months ago, I received a box of gerber/gerbera daisies....the selection was filled with bright shades of pinks, oranges, and yellows.  With the gerbers, came the prettiest wedding garland made from smilax....the garland was so perfect and the leaves were the perfect shade of green, so vibrant and full!  So, what's a girl to do with a box of gerbers and wedding garland....how about enhancing the garland with the gerbers and filling bud vases (purchased from the craft store) with 3-4 stems of gerbers.....and as you can see, that's exactly what I did.  The end results...a pretty floral garland for a wedding, a baby shower, dinner party, any occasion that you choose and you can give your guest a gerber filled bud vase at the end of the night!!  Images captured by my friend and AMAZING photographer, Tori of Marvelous Things Photography, thanks so much Tori...Enjoy y'all...xoxoxo
