oh snap! + out of the office

First off, we will be out of the office immediately following this post and will be returning Monday. Calls and emails will be returned at that time.

Now, do you remember the SNAPdragon bouquet we introduced last month? Well, we're bringing it up again because the bride, Julie, was so kind to share a couple of her professional photos with us! They are so beautiful - we LOVE them. Thank you Julie!

Now compare our measly photo of her bouquet...

...to the professional photographer's photos:

OH SNAP! We just can't even compete with that! It goes to show that a good details photographer is so important. This is the same exact bouquet, but it looks completely different when the professional is behind the camera. Girls, invest in a great photographer. We do so love it when you do.

Happy weekend! See you next week!

flowers used in bouquet: red alstromeria, white/red bi-color alstromeria, spray roses, tulips, snapdragons, hypericum berries

editorial eye candy day 3 - a POTTERY BARN giveaway

It's day three of Editorial Eye Candy Week, and today's post on Utah Bride Blog featured Pottery Barn, as that is where all of the details for the shoot were born. And what better way to celebrate day three than to let you know that UBB is having a spectacular Pottery Barn giveaway for all of the vases used on the shoot? Seriously! The prize is these five beauties as a set:

We shouldn't even tell you about this, because we just entered and truly want to win! The vases are supremely gorgeous (we should know, since the floral design came from none else but us). But... since we are SO SO nice, we will share this valuable information. Hop on over and enter.

Good luck... uh... break a leg!

photo of the month + editorial eye candy [day 2]

Oh yeah, it's April, huh? I suppose we're a little preoccupied this time of year as the busy time heats up! Well, happy April. Let's [belatedly] start if off right with a beautiful new photo of the month shot by an equally beautiful photographer whose work we adore:

flowers used in arrangement: hanging amaranthus, tulips (2 varieties), hydrangea, bupleurum, bi-color godetia, peonies, butterfly bush, scabiosa pods, spray roses, veronica, lisianthus, dahlias, liatris, craspedia

Also, today's Editorial Eye Candy on Utah Bride Blog features fashion and beauty trends. The vendors featured are Utah's best of the best - hop on over and check it out!

(P.S. I know the other female vendors on the shoot would all agree and I'm sure you all do too... the male model is eye candy enough!)

We had ten entries, and the winner was randomly chosen using random.org, which generated the number 3 out of 10. And that means our third commenter is the lucky duck!

so let's give a big, huge, lucky-day, $150 congratulations to

And now, on to even more exciting news. Get ready to feast your eyes on an ENTIRE WEEK of daily eye candy! We mentioned a couple of posts back that Blossom Sweet was part of a massive (and massively gorgeous) editorial shoot. Well, that shoot is being featured every day this week on Utah Bride Blog. Get excited!

You can see the today's introductory/overview post here. Each day for the remainder of the week will feature a different aspect of the shoot. The big flower feature is planned for this Friday. Can't wait!

We will post one photo from each day here on the Blossom Sweet Blog and will give you the link to the particular day's post. Here's today's sneak peek photo, GO SEE THE REST!
