Last week was so great, but Friday was a complete thrill for me! Why you ask? Because Darcy Miller, whom I had met at the BFF Bridal Event, invited me to a taping of the Martha Stewart Show and I was more than happy to go! She was doing a great segment of wedding trends that are all in the new MS Weddings issue [which is great by the way, pick it up ASAP] and I got introduced to Reem Acra during the commercial break! Check out her blog for some behind the scenes photos and closeups of the bling the brides were wearing…..Darcy, thanks again for the invite!

I’m a sucker for Pink Peonies…what can I say. As a floral designer, I’m suppose to love and appreciate all flowers, but secretly, Peonies with their beautiful and large blooms have a soft spot in my heart. It’s rare to do a wedding with so many peonies so this one at Auberge du Soleil really stands out. The chuppah was very special as it was adorned with strandes of woven pink cymbidium orchids. The peonies were clusters of pink peonies. The centerpieces were large arrangements in shades of pinks. The bride was like a princess in her fluffy gown. It’s a dream to me.

This cake from the latest issue of MS Weddings is just absolutely darling…from the beautiful calligraphy to the little crepe paper flowers at the top!

One of my favorite things I did at my wedding was to create a giant spread of pretty cakes, cupcakes and petit fors. I collected milk glass cake plates for display and I gave the bakery specific instructions on cake decorating.

This was a beyond cool fundraising party for the Tate Modern…how could I not have thought of this before? [interior designer = paint chips] David Stark was enlisted for the event design, and made it fabulous using paint chips as table numbers, chandeliers, and backdrops. And how easy! For the table numbers, just raid your local hardware store for the chips and grab some vinyl letters and you’re all set…[via Hue Consulting]
