Creating a little Anniversary Magic!!!....
Normally we don't like to show too much about what we do as not to ruin the element of surprise for our couples. This is our most interesting design to date, only because the couple provided us with just about everything and just ask that we set it all up for them! It really turned out just the way they imagined it would and they were a lot of fun to work with! They were really into doing something different and it was surprising for us, that they new exactly what they wanted!

yuweally wrtwe
Happy 10th Anniversary again, to the happy couple and thanks for taking the time to write the beautiful testimony about our services. It was our pleasure!!

Yes...a "Couture" Bridal Bouquet!

According to... Rhonda Patton of Rhonda Patton Designs...
Wedding planning for 2009 is underway! Brides are flocking to the coolest venues and consulting with the most fashionable style teams {"wedding vendors"}. Learning about the season's hottest trends can make your wedding even more unforgettable.
2009 will call for an enticing mix of modern and classic designs. Brides want anything but ordinary. DRAMA…OPULENCE… ELEGANCE and CHIC will be the bridal buzz words for 2009.
COUTURE WEDDING FLOWERS "Couture" {koo-toor} typically referring to high fashion design and dressmaking has now shifted into the wedding industry from couture gowns to couture flowers, the term "couture" is being widely used. Couture in the floral industry encompasses monochromatic palettes (or jarring), unexpected color combinations, unusual textures and unique shapes.

Our More Than Just Roses..........
Aster: Symbol of Love; Daintiness; Variety; Elegance; This purple wildflower was named for the Latin word for "star." Also known as the birthflower for September.

Flowers have been proven to have a psychological affect on people. According to a study conducted at Rutgers University, flowers have a tremendous beneficial impact on our emotional lives. Admit it, once you receive a bouquet of flowers or even a single flower you immediately feel happier, your mood improves, and you usually have an intimate connection with the blossom/s.
Flowers are living creatures, they too have names to represent their unique self. However, unlike people's names which represent personality traits, flower names symbolize the emotional affect the flowers will have on the giver as well as the recipient.
Since there are so many names from A-Z, pick flowers that have a meaning as they relate to Romance!
Next time add a little Aster to the bouquet or give a bunch by themselves!

Exceptional Proposal Ideas

The Christmas season is the busiest season for jewelers, due to engagement ring purchases. Thinking about how you want to pop the question is key. Where a marriage proposal is made will never be forgotten, so choose a memorable setting! For the locals, it may not be atop the Eiffel Tower or scaling the Catskills in New York state.

Adam and Eve got their start in the Garden of Eden, and so can you!
The combination of a bucolic setting and air scented with flowers makes for a peaceful yet intoxicating place to propose marriage. Take a walk to a private spot and take the plunge, at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia! It's a place to make hearts and wings flutter, the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center. There's also the Fantasy In Lights Holiday light display, celebrating it's 17th anniversary. With its eight million lights creating more than a dozen beautiful scenes you can drive your own vehicle or ride one of our open-air Jolly Trolleys through a five-mile winter wonderland. Perfect for a magical proposal of marriage!
We can help create a scene that's right for you with our exception proposal service. Visit our website today! Click here for more details!
