Whoo's Got A Cute Room?!

Finally I have been able to work on my daughter's owl inspired bedroom!!  This room has been 3 years in the making - and she is only four years old!  When my daughter was about 1 1/2, I came across an adorable bedroom set with owls, birds and trees from Pottery Barn Kids and I knew I wanted to do Madailein's "big girl room" in that theme.  Once we moved into our new house and started to set her room up, Target happened to come out with a owl bedroom set as well. So, I combined pieces from both Target and PB Kids to come up with the perfect room for her. 

Since time is not something I have a lot of, I decided to use some of the wall decals that Target had to coordinate with the theme.  I always knew that I wanted to paint some trees on her wall and do a monogram above her headboard.  This summer I finally was able to put some time aside to get her room painted the way I envisioned.  I have to say, that both of my girl's rooms are my favorite rooms in the house!  I could spend all my time there.  There's still some details I want to do in Madailein's room, but at least it's about done!  I would like to paint at least one more tree on the other side of her bed and maybe one more on the opposite wall - but all in all, I am soo happy with the way her room turned out!

First Wedding of the Summer!

A few weekends ago I delivered the flowers for my first wedding of this summer!  I am very pleased with the way the bouquets turned out - and so was the bride, which is most important of all.  The bridesmaids wore Tiffany blue dresses and carried elegant simple hand-tied bouquets of white calla lilies.  The bride's bouquet was white roses and white calla lilies; both of which are just perfect for weddings.  White calla lilies can signify beauty and innocence and bring the feeling of modern and elegance to the ceremony and reception.  Hopefully this will help get my business started and more weddings coming my way!!
