mothers day

This has been the busiest week ever . . . EVER! This weekend especially. But, everything that was keeping me busy turned out superb, so, I deem my week a hectic success.

Rachel & Scott were married this weekend, and their wedding was picturesque. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Photos from the fab photographer @ their event to come soon!

For now, let me share with you a couple of photos I took today of some Mothers Day special orders I designed (sorry for the grainy texture):

order #1, extra-large focal piece:

order #2, three piece collage arrangement:
flowers used: veronica, parrot tulips, dahlias, gladiolus, oriental lilies, viburnum, kale, curly willow

And because a Mothers Day post wouldn't be complete without a shout-out to my own Madre Fantastico, here's a shot of mom & me in 1990:
I remember this as if it were yesterday. All I had to do was tell the makeover artists (at the MALL, I must add . . . "Shooting Stars" to be exact) what my favorite colors were, "PINK and PURPLE!" and they took care of the rest. And they did it brilliantly. You know, nothing screams "classy" like bunched/teal/metallic satin and 96 pounds of violet et mauve tulle.

Here's to being classy in 2010, Mom. I crazy love you.

Happy Mothers Day!

I so love it this pic of you and your mom via 1990, it's classic. And it makes me smile every time I see it. And laugh a little too :) Total babes, you and your mom! Beautiful flowers, as always!

Okay in all seriousness I too got those sweet pictures done in the mall, only I was a senior in high school. Picture huge hair and dark green fabric! Not nearly as cute as yours!
