thank you, thank you very much

Oh, Thanksgiving was wonderful! Wonderful, wonderful. Loved spending a little time with my beloved family. Hope you all had a great holiday as well. As promised, here is our "grateful post" for 2010.

A few weeks ago, we made a bouquet for a magazine shoot. After the shoot, I decided to take the bouquet apart and create an arrangement for a good friend of mine who has been courageously and patiently battling breast cancer. At the time, I had just barely gotten over being sick (and relatively miserable) for ten days. After I dropped off the flowers, I realized that as bad as I had been feeling, my minor and temporary health problems were nothing compared to what my friend (who is much stronger than me) has been and is going through.

So, to me, the arrangement I created represented a form of gratitude if that makes sense. It became a reminder to me that even when I have bad days and go through minor aches & pains now and then - both in health and in regards to life in general - at the end of the day I have it pretty good, and I have an enormous amount of beauty and good in my life for which to be grateful. I just need to look at the big picture and appreciate what God and life give me from day to day.

{the arrangement: my grateful epiphany}

So now as November comes to a close, I'll put it out there to my life, belief, universe, and circumstance: thank you, thank you very much.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. I'm getting ready to head down to good old Delta, UT today to have Thanksgiving Dinner @ my wonderful Grandma's house. Can't wait for a whole day with the family! Watch for a "thankful" post from us soon (tonight or tomorrow . . . ish!).

women in weddings 2010

Together with Studio Stems, Blossom Sweet was uber-pleased to host the first official "Women In Weddings" retreat back in October. It was essentially a vendor-vixen slumber party for our favorite wedding gals & company owners at a beautiful mountain cabin. We dare say that a lovely, laughter-filled time was had by all!

The night began with getting settled in & introductions led by Melissa w/Blossom Sweet (embarrassing stories, anyone?), followed by a great presentation on networking given by Audrey. The rest of the night was about dinner, mingling, games, hot-tubbing, contests (including the best ever hip-hop showcase, you know the one I'm talking about, girls!), lots of chocolate, lots of laughs, and many strengthened vendor relationships.

Kayleen of Kayleen T. Photography was in attendance, and we are so glad she snapped some photos before heading out Saturday morning. Thank you, Kayleen, and thank you so much to all attendees for a night to remember!

P.S. Be sure to check out the recent Utah Bride Blog post written by co-owner of UBB, Audrey, who wrote about the Women In Weddings event as well as why it is SO important to get vendor referrals when planning your wedding. It's a brilliant take on vendor "insurance."

dazzling . glamorous. decadent . wedding

Tori is one of our favorite Blossom Sweet brides. She had a clear vision of what she wanted, and that being said she selected of an elite group of Utah's top vendors to create a wedding dreams are made of - the creme de la creme of wedding talent so to say! The result? Everything came together perfectly for Tori's Summer 2010 Wedding.

We adored this soiree, and what a pleasure it was to work with such an outstanding client. Thank you, Tori (+ mother of the bride, Tami, whom we equally enjoyed working with)!
