been busy

We have been very busy lately. We recently started our own business. We have been putting orders together for local football teams, and now brides in our area. Gordon and I were just featured in our local newspaper, WOW, was that scary, and we made the whole front page. We are now working in clay. The pic with the calla lily is just a bunch of flowers I put together yesterday, these took time, and the clay is not cheap. These flowers are just great though. The clay has a calla lily, rose, blue & purple hydrangeas, stephanotis & buds.

The red and white paper roses & carnations were for a football team's homecoming queens. The purple were for another team, they just wanted paper carnations, thank god, they wanted 55 flowers, and that was a lot of work.

We made our first sales to a neighbor of ours, and they were for a function he was attending. Now they will be sitting on the head table of a senator, and then auctioned off. We can't wait to hear the reviews on that, because we want to know what the baskets went for.

So what do you ladies think of the clay flowers so far? Any ideas as to other flowers you might want to see? Just let me know what you think. Thanks

Pomander & Centerpiece

Here are 2 pics of the pomander, 1 without grass, 2 with grass. This is the start of my centerpiece tops, I am working on these, still not sure just what to do with them yet. Any ideas as to what to do? I think I need help on this one.

So what do you ladies think so far? We will be making a lot of these pomanders. There are tiny calla lilies in the pomanders.

Crystal tree

Here is the start of my crystal tree. This will be on a table that we are going to be making. The tree is going to be lit up with it's own spot lights from underneath. I will be adding more crystals, I only have 19 strands, about 696 crystals on it now, but I will be getting more. The tree is a Manzanita tree I had brought in from California. My tree is 4' 5" tall.

So what do you think so far?

Wedding site

Here are some pictures of the gardens we will be holding the wedding in. There are 5 acres of gardens. This is a beautiful place with lots of photo ops. One nice thing about these gardens, they have the facilities for the wedding party to get ready in.

Any ideas on decorating the gazebo would be wonderful.

Tribute Rose

Here is the tribute rose I did for Michael Jackson, it is black with pearl white tips. This rose took several days to do, but I think it came out great, the pictures do not do it justice.

So tell me what you think of this one.

My wedding rose

Here is the main rose of the wedding, my blue & silver with pearl center. I worked on this rose all day to get it just right for the wedding, and the colors matched perfect.

I would love feedback on this one.

If you go back over some of my earlier posts, you will see how I did these, and a link to Martha Stewart website for instructions.
