The Palace Bridal Show

The bridal show on the 18th was a huge success! I met some very cool new brides, and I am quickly filling in the rest of my open 2009 weekends! Here is the Floral Verde LLC booth:

The first vignette was inspired by the Michigan coast, and was illustrated with a complete table setting. The tall blue centerpiece contained delphinium, hydrangea, dusty miller, seeded eucalyptus, buplerum, Escimo roses, Cream Propyta roses, dried phalaris, and ranunculus. The base of the 32 inch pilsner vase was surrounded with a small wreath of flowers, and was accented with dupioni silk wrapped votives.

The next vignette was inspired by a vintage Hollywood theme. The main colors were antique gold, blush, champagne and ivory. The centerpiece was elevated with a 20 inch turned wood candle stand. It contained hydrangea, bupleurum, Sahara roses, Champagne sweetheart roses and Peach Vision spray roses.

There was a second bouquet for the vintage Hollywood theme that brought a lot of attention to the booth. It was quite simple and only contained Escimo roses, Viviane spray roses, white mini callas, and beige stripped coque feathers. The delicate feathers added glamour and movement. The photo just doesn't do it justice!

At the back of the booth we had a garden themed vignette. The centerpiece contained hydrangea, bupleurum, Cream Prophyta roses, Rosita Vendela roses, Sahara roses and Champagne sweetheart roses in an antique gold footed bowl. The matching bouquet contained hydrangea, Cream Prophyta roses, Rosita Vendela roses, Sahara roses, Champagne sweetheart roses, ranunculus and dried phalaris with a two layered silk and satin stem wrap.

Here is a picture of Allison and me at 5:00 PM, right before we tore down the booth and raffled off all of the arrangements. Allison is one of my former brides who works part time for me. You might remember her from Allison & Chris at Pine Knob Mansion. Thanks for your help Alley!
