Wedding Bells

Lately, I've been spending a lot of time of time perusing pictures of wedding flowers. "Why?" you might ask. Well, no, I'm not getting married again.  However, I am helping two other couples do so.  I'm so honored and excited to announce that I have been hired to create and design the flowers and decor for two different weddings coming up in May.  These are my first weddings to do (aside from my own and my sister's), and I couldn't be happier.  One will be held right outside Atlanta, GA and the other will be in Santa Rosa, FL.  I am beyond thrilled to help these two lovely ladies achieve the special days they've always dreamed of. 

While doing some research for their events, I couldn't help but reminisce over my own wedding day.  It will be our two year anniversary April 24, and it really does seem just like yesterday. 

A Victorian home over 100-years-old was just the right setting for our reception.  And since it was just a walk across the boardwalk from the beach where our ceremony took place, it couldn't have been a more perfect location. 

As you may have guessed from the title of this site, I love hydrangeas and made sure they had a big presence on my day.  I didn't want the standard, mostly white bouquet so I made mine with antique hydrangeas and mini green hydrangeas.

Hydrangeas also made their way into the little details-the cake topper, the door wreath and the bridesmaids bouquets.

Roses and asiatic lilies were incorporated with the hydrangeas for the centerpieces.  I wanted a clean and classic look, and I couldn't have been happier with how my arrangements turned out.

Ahhh I can't wait for May!

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :)


Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print.


A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos.

An antique baby basket helped house the gifts.
The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee.
The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar. 
And of course no shower is complete without a little something sweet. These b…

Christmas Trees-Part 2 (Rustic and Coastal)

Here are my other favorite Christmas tree styles-rustic and coastal (since we're moving to Florida).  Enjoy!

Use tea stained manila tags to create ornaments.  So simple, yet so cute.

This rustic tree has just the right mix of gold, silver and burlap...my faves!  The stockings are adorable too.

Christmas at the beach anyone?  Starfish make the perfect adornments for a coastal holiday.

Coastal blues bring this tree (and these presents) to life in this traditional home. 

This tree is full of more starfish and the hydrangeas and chartreuse color palette remind me of my wedding :)

Now to decide which style to use...or perhaps a mix of the styles is in order!  Do you change the theme of your tree every couple of years?

Planes or Pearls? Gender Reveal Party

On Friday, June 28th, Jon and I headed out to see the gender of Baby Reutter.  Jon wanted to find out as soon as possible, and I wanted to wait to be surprised with everyone at the reveal party the next day. So we decided that he would find out and be the one set up the "big reveal."  Baby Reutter didn't want to cooperate on the first attempt but after some cold water, walking around and sweet patience from the ultrasound tech, we got the "money shot."  I'm not going to lie, it was a bit torturous at first to not be in the know with Jon, but after the first few hours, I was good to go and so excited about the surprise for the next day.  Here we are about to head out to the reveal appointment.
Now for the reveal party on Saturday...As mentioned before, I wanted a unique theme for the party.  Since Jon is a pilot, I thought planes would be a cute idea for a boy.  For the girl, I thought of pearls; they're sweet, feminine and also happen to be my birthsto…
