After you have been surrounded by flowers for over a decade (yikes!! that makes me feel old) I suppose it's possible to become a little indifferent to how beautiful certain flowers are and how even a flower can become a trend. I've always been a huge fan of textural & funky elements, and I use them as often as possible in my designs. Craspedia is one of these and has been popping up all over the place in design inspiration and I'm loving it! It's been happening for awhile now, probably even a couple years since yellow and gray became a popular wedding color palette. Whenever it started or however long it lasts I think it's great and wanted to do a round up of some of my favorite looks. These little yellow guys or "Billy Balls" as they are sometimes referred to are whimsical, fun and add the perfect little touch to many designs.

We recently used them in Laurie and Dave's wedding and for our table design here, here and here.

Flower Magazine had this post recently - simple and easy to replicate.

I love this DIY project from Design Sponge, I haven't tried it yet but I will.


Real Wedding: Oana and Jason

The wedding on Saturday at the beautiful Skyline Studios (located in the same building as Tribeca Rooftop) was great. The bride, Oana, was amazing to work with and she stayed true to what she wanted for the design of the tables. She was always open to my ideas and suggestions and together we designed a beautiful look for the tables. I love the final outcome and here is just a glimpse...

The detail of the linens and the use of the acrylic ghost chairs added so much to the overall look of the space, more details about the designs and images to come. Stay tuned!


Real Wedding: Laurie and Dave

I loved the idea of a vintage/retro picnic from the minute I meet Laurie and Dave. We threw around a bunch of ideas and ultimately came up with some simple touches that created a great look without being overwhelmingly kitschy. It was definitely a collaborative effort with Laurie and Dave sourcing the Thermos', vintage radio and camera and Laurie's Mom sewing the gingham runners.

I was very happy with the result and so were Laurie and Dave...yay!


Real Wedding: Maggie & Garrett

It was a prefect summer day for Maggie & Garrett's wedding at Studio 450 this past weekend. The ceremony took place on the rooftop followed by a cocktail style reception downstairs. The vibrant tones of pink and orange popped against the ultra white backdrop of the space. More detailed pictures (I should say professional!) to come along with a look at the personal flowers carried by Maggie and her bridesmaids.
