Tulips & Horsetail

I’ve been doing lots of small and medium arrangements for offices and shops but have not been good at taking photos and posting!  Hopefully you will see more catch-up blogging soon!

Here are 2 coordinating ones that I did for Funnel Mill Rare Coffee & Tea in Santa Monica, CA. They wanted something simple and bright with greenery to place on the coffee tables in front of the realllly comfy brown leather sofas!!!  Their shop has East Asian influences, so I thought I’d use some Horsetail (as it sort of reminds me of bamboo), and bright orange and yellow tulips (the color orange is in the brown family of colors and reminds me of coffee beans — the shape of tulips help too!)

One has an asymetric look to it, and the other is pretty symetric, with a bit of crazy flare (the only asymetric thing about it is the shear black wired ribbon!)  I hope you like it!

Bridal Shower in Carlsbad

Passion Fruit Riccota Torte - from Extraordinary Desserts (San Diego)

Passion Fruit Riccota Torte - from Extraordinary Desserts (San Diego)

My best friend Tina planned a BEAUTIFUL (and green) bridal shower for me! Considering I’m an information junkie and want to know everything going on, I stayed hands-off as much as possible and let her and the girls plan! Tina did an awsome job! She found a local Encinitas caterer, 220 Catering, that was reasonably priced AND had good food! Everyone was raving about how moist and flavorful the cake was too! Cake was from my favorite SD bakery shop/resturaunt called Extraordinary Desserts. THANK YOU Tina!! and Laura for the floral decor, and Kelly for the photography! I won’t elaborate more, since Tina blogged about it on her own site! Check it out!!! www.inthecloudsevents.wordpress.com
