I just love a woman who knows her own heart!!! The lovely client, Debbie contacted me to create a custom brooch bouquet, I went through my normal questionnaire … “when is your wedding date?” her response, “oh I’m not a bride, I just want one for my bedroom!” Needless to say my questions went in a slightly direction… Her response upon receiving her Boudoir Brooch Bouquet… “Oh my God it’s beautiful, I love it, love it, love it!!! An that is why I do what I do! Creating smiles one at a time! :)
In the midst of creating custom Brooch Bouquets for my lovely brides I had the opportunity to create a few of my mini desk-top bouquets, each with a personal story… the top was a gift to my Mother-in-law for her 80th Birthday, I even Mod Podged an old bottle with antique wrapping paper. The pink was for a friend re-covering from surgery. “Under the Tuscan Sun” was for a friend dreaming of Italy! Finally the purple and gold was commissioned for a Mother’s day gift for a treasured mom! Each have found a spot in the lives of the recipients where they can be seen and bring joy! One smile at a time!
The latest Custom Brooch Bouquet to find it’s way into the hands of a happy bride… This one was personal for me. It was a gift for a very special bride, Nicole. Her fiancé Trevor is like a son and has a special place in our family! Soo when he proposed to Nicole and she expressed her desire for a brooch bouquet full of vintage pieces… well, ok! Done! The Ceremony took place in the private home of Trevor’s Grandmother in San Francisco… stay tuned for the details!
I love brides who think outside-of-the-box! Adrea is one of them, she contacted me with the desire to design a unique boutonniere that includes things important to her groom, Justin. Dodger fan, proud to be Italian, love of football, collects watches, world traveler, rock-n-roller, insanely huge Beatles fan & a drummer himself… how’d we do? Adrea surprised him the morning of their wedding with this personal gift!!! Success, he loved it!
This very cool couple had a piece of artwork designed during the wedding and reception… at the end of the night the boutonniere was attached as a permanent memento of their amazing day! Congratulations Justin & Adrea!
So, I am back… life has been a little consuming and sadly my blog took a back seat! But here I am ready to share some of the wonderful relationships and work that has blessed Baubles and brides! First up is this beautiful custom Brooch Bouquet, one of two designed for Blush Bridal salon… the lovely ladies at Blush desired to enhance their clients experience with a unique bouquet to hold while trying on their gorgeous dresses! Such a great idea!
This Custom Brooch Bouquet is a true labor of love… the amazing Mother of the bride, Viviane contacted me determined to have one of my bouquets for her daughters February wedding in the Bahamas! No problem… except that we only had a few weeks to pull it off! I am always willing to except the challenge of a rush order, if I have the stock or the bride has all her goodies ready to go. Neither however was the case… Viviane did all the hunting of the new pieces while I did all the gathering of the vintage/antique pieces, the fact that she worked for FedEx was such a blessing! 63 emails, a dozen phone calls, countless sneak peeks, 4 shipments and a trip to meet the bride on a layover and… One very happy surprised bride with an over-the- top thankful mother! What a delight is was to collaborate with you Viviane! Travel safe and congratulations!
