wedsmith 2010

Yesterday Blossom Sweet had the opportunity to attend Wedsmith, the first annual event of it's kind here in UT, put on by the most excellent Alta Moda Bridal for top local wedding vendors. And it was held at the oh-so-fancy-schmancy Grand America in SLC - need we say more?

our favorite highlight of the day:

Personal interaction and Blossom Sweet brand evaluation by Lara Casey, yep you heard right, Lara Casey, branding-expert and genius behind Southern Weddings (among other things). Wowsa! And it gets better - we were the only company chosen from the audience to be fully evaluated! What a once-in-a-lifetime chance. Thanks for the advice, feedback, and Blossom Sweet love, Lara! Let's be buds.

What a great opportunity and experience Wedsmith was. There were many exceptional speakers who did a fantastic job presenting us with their knowledge, personality, and expertise. We're very much looking forward to next year. Thanks, Alta Moda!

jealous be

I had some leftover flowers from a photo shoot collaboration I was a part of today (can't wait to see it!) so with the small handful of leftover blooms I created a little lovely to grace my kitchen table. I love simple things, and don't you love the green glass? I've been saving these bottles since Christmas to be used at some point for this very purpose . . . Martinelli's at it's finest. :)

Jealous much? Jealous be.

So all you tweeters out there, we'd love to have you follow us!

petal particulars: millet

Sometimes I feel like fillers & greenery get the shaft when it comes to flowers. I mean, let's be honest, the fillers and the greens are almost never the focal point of a bouquet or an arrangement, however, they do have the ability to make all the difference in the world in a design and take something from "really pretty" to something "absolutely stunning."

For today's "petal particulars" post, I thought it would be fun to focus on one of these so-called "shafted" elements: MILLET.

Millet is one of my favorite greens/fillers, especially during the late summer to fall season. One of my favorite weddings where I incorporated a lot of millet was Elizabeth's Park City Fete, August 2009. Here are some of my favorite images of the millet-donned designs [photos by yours truly]:

Now, some inspiration from elsewhere:

Branching Out Events {ugh, this wedding is disgustingly beautiful to me}:

a couple itty-bitty yet lovely images from The Knot:

and lest we post incomplete, a montage from Martha herself:

So to wrap it up, do you think the millet makes a difference? I dare say it does! If you love it, be sure to specifically ask your florist to incorporate it.

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! Welcome back to reality.

photo of the month: september

On the Blossom Sweet Blog, we have the "photo of the month." On my personal blog, I have the "quote of the month." Well, this month the two coincide perfectly so I will share them both.

First, one of my favorite portrait bouquets, Natalia's from about this time last year:

And now, the quote of the month, which describes my feelings about Fall precisely:

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."
-George Eliot

I love everything about Fall! Love the weather, love the colors, love the smells, love the football games, the get-togethers, the decor - love EVERYTHING!

Happy September!
