Inspired Creations

This evening I found myself lost in iphoto.  I'm trying to organize it, and while doing so, I came across some images that I was surprised I hadn't yet shared.  During Indie Wed we participated in the Inspired Creations Contest, and found ourselves as runner ups!

I want to send a little thank you out to the following, who made this such a fun shoot! Elizabeth Anne Designs, SQN Events, Simply Jessie Photography, Courtney Callahan Paper, Truffle Truffle & Femme du Coupe.  You are all such an incredibly talented group, and I am so tickled and honored to have you all in my life!! ~~~ Now, enjoy the photos, and bottom's up!
All these photos are by Simply Jessie!

A touch of pink

Indie Wed.  This is the IT of the wedding shows.  We haven't fully participated in an Indie Wed showcase (we definitely plan on applying for this coming January), but Joan of Five Grain Events asked if we would create a floral piece for her table.  Her inspiration?  The 1950's.  But her table was no ordinary sock hop.  It was glamourous.  It was sweet.  It was pink and pretty.  We chose a crystal cut vase from our vintage collection (You've been seeing a trend here lately, haven't you?) and designed a soft and romantic arrangement with a little bit of whimsy.  The setting was complete with incredible paper items from Suzy at Lily Red Studio (she amazes me every time!).  Also, aside from being an incredible designer, she is a photographer and is the face behind these wonderful photos!  Thank you so much, Suzy!!

Peonies.  You all know how dear they are to me.  I'll truly never tire of looking at them.  And to see beauties like this, with August knocking on the door is special.

What an elegant escort card table!

A beautiful card designed by Suzy!  These would also look so lovely when planning a silver wedding anniversary!

I think the incorporation of the table number & centerpiece is so tasteful and well done!

I love the blush pink with the silver/grey of the dusty miller.  The sumac & scabiosa are also such great textural additions.  The snapdragons are really just plain sweet!  Side note: I think I've told you my story about digging up all the snaps in my mother's garden when I was little.  I was so excited to show them to her, not realizing she had planted them that morning.  Snaps always make me think of that.


A special thanks to Five Grain Events for inviting me to be part of their incredible booth!  Also to Lily Red Studios for capturing such wonderful images of the blooms!  Also to Room 1520 for hosting Indie Wed!  Looking forward to seeing all the fabulous vendors in January!
