Pantone Color 2012: Tangerine Tango

The official Pantone Color for 2012 is Tangerine Tango (17-1463)! This red-ish orange color has a lot of depth and seduction; Yet it is also vibrant and energetic!  Using this color immediately gives your wedding a statement! 

Here is a blast-from-the-past wedding (2010 Yvonne+Jason) that uses an orange+green palette with a neutral grey — yes 2009, 2010, 2011.. grey was the new black!  (These beautiful mini calla are actually call “Mango” – but close enough!)  In any event, what ever color you choose for your wedding, it will be fabulous!

Holiday Arrangements :: 2011

I am a summer girl all the way.  I can’t think well in the cold.  I’m even cold in the summer, sometimes. But … December is my favorite month. Go figure.  Maybe it’s because it’s my birth month? Maybe it’s the changing of the seasons… (ok, wishing of the changing of the seasons for southern Californians).  I just love the  gathering of friends and family, food, festivities, and all the decorations!  Every year, right about now, I start thinking about what color the christmas tree should be, the coordinating wrapping paper to be used…(you know, playing “martha stewart”)!  I also start to remenise about the holiday arrangements I did last year, and how to make it even LOVELY-er!

Last year I had several requests for floral arrangements using fruits! Oh how I loved this challenge!    Here are some photos from 2010, delivered successfully in the pouring rain may I add! I suppose you could call these “fruit baskets”, but… much more fabulous!

This year I am offering custom Holiday Arrangements again! 
Requirements for Holiday orders:

  • orders must be placed at least 1 week in advanced
  • orders need to be accompanied by any detail you have in mind for the arrangement, otherwise your arrangement will be up to … the floral designer, me! Details like..
      1. type of occasion/holiday
      2. recipient’s style (colors, flowers, other elements; ie. fruits, folliage)
      3. arrangement budget
      4. delivery date/address
  • to place order or inquire further, contact me via email (signaturekevents@yahoo.com) or phone (818) 625-5752.  I will contact you to finalize the specifications of your LOVELY order!

Due to limitations at this time, I will only be able to take orders with delivery locations between San Diego to Orange County, California.  Thank you!

Let the holiday festivities (and shopping) begin!  Happy Wednesday!

Love Boat Bridal Salon – Trunk Show

This past weekend I joined Tina Li of In The Clouds Events at the Love Boat Bridal Salon!  Met lots of brides with exceptional taste in dresses! Some of designer Mori Lee and Christina Wu’s dresses were available at the Trunk Show.   Here’s our little table in the shop!  Thanks to all the brides that stopped and smelled the flowers! 😉 

A bouquet of Spray Roses, inspired by a Mori Lee gown style #1601

I loved zooming in on this one as this bouquet is made up of so many different roses.. and a lot of it! =)

simple. elegant. modern. the mini calla lily.

White+Sweet Blush Colored Flowers

I had the perfect arrangement in my for my cousin’s birthday gift.  I knew she wanted something white for her for her dining room table, so I thought:  Let’s take all the white flowers that I love and mesh it all together (in a tasteful way of course) with a touch of color!

This was initially arranged in a white  ceramic container.  But only after I had finished, did I realize there was a hairline crack in the container. So, I grabed the nearest wooden one  and switched it out! I’m so glad it happened because the wooden container was just the perfect match for these beautiful flowers. 

This arrangement has tons of different flowers (I kindda went crazy):  hydrangeas, roses, stock, bells of ireland, dahlias, lilies, scabiosas pods, and astilbe.  Happy Birthday Karlene!

And just for a little fun, if this were wedding flowers.. here’s the bouquet:

DIY – Flowers Part II: Bouquets

Here is Part II of Cindy Babuscio’s DIY Flower class on bouquets.  There is a surprisingly good amount of you DIY brides out there who plan on doing your own wedding flowers (at least the bouquets).  Here are some tips!
 
I highly recommend if you are doing your own wedding flowers, play around with different types of flowers; some last longer out of water than others, some are more fragile, some are easier/harder to work with. 
 
Some more reasons to play around with flowers well in advance of your wedding:
  1. Your favorite flower may not be in season and you will need to find an alternate or order it.
  2. You can determine how large you want your bouquet
  3. This will allow you to better estimate how much flowers you will need (in case some are fragile and break easily, or wilt easily, you will need extra!)
  4. You can test different color paletes
  5. You can estimate how long it will take to do your bouquet, and the others
  6. You can test how long the flowers will last and in what type of weather condition, etc.  (to prepare when to make it before the big day if you don’t have a fridge that can hold all your flowers)
There are lots to consider, but if you are a DIY bride all the way, you will reap satisfaction in producing your own!  Have fun! 
 
Here is a mixed bouquet of various types of flowers.  Making a mixed bouquet is a good way to sample all the different flowers and how they handle differently.  Thanks Cindy for providing the materials!  (Rose, Gerbera, Stock, Coffee Berry, Fern, Button mums)
 

DIY – Flowers Part I: Boutonnieres

I love to continue learning different techniques and meeting new people!  Last month The Wedding Pantry opened in Tustin, CA and although I missed the grand opening, I was able to attend the Part 1 of DIY wedding flowers at the boutique.  Cindy Babuscio of Bohemian Rose Designs graciously offered her knowledge to brides looking to do their own wedding flowers, starting with boutonnieres.  All photos were taken by wedding photographer Brian Khang, but the last photo was taken by me, from the cell phone! =)
